Introduction

Through the "Link to Parent Site" feature, you can create a link between two or more sites so that participants in all of the sites can easily navigate back and forth.

  • The parent site is the main, primary, or hub site of a group of sites. Links to the child sites will be located below the menubar. Clicking these links will take the user to that specific site.
  • A child site can only be linked to one parent site. Once a site is linked to a parent site, a navigation breadcrumb will appear above the menubar. Clicking the parent site's title will take the user to that site.
  • When you link a site to a parent site, it does not copy any materials, participants, or settings between the sites. If you want the same users to access all of the linked sites, you must verify or add the same participants or rosters to all of the linked sites. See ARCHIVED: Importing material or participants from another site you own. Alternatively, you can use a separate feature to combine course sites (including the rosters) into a single site; see ARCHIVED: Combining course sites into a single parent site.
