Designer 2007 "Manage the web site using hidden metadata files" RRS feed

  • Question

  • First I create a new website.

    Then I choose Site > Site Settings > The Site Setting dialog box opens.

    Here's the problem:
    The 'Manage the Web site using hidden metadata files' check box is grayed out, so it is impossible for me to uncheck the box.

    How do I make the box go live so I can uncheck it? Am I creating the new website wrong?

  • Is it a sub site?  If it is you cannot untick it as sub sites need metadata from the parent site to exist.

  • Bmcomp,

    Thanks for the response.


    These are brand new sites created on my desktop computer.

    File > New > Website > General > One Page Website or Empty Website

    Under Options,  the 'Add to current website' box is unchecked.


    I'm using Designer 7 with Service Pack 3. No Sharepoint versions are installed.
