SharePoint - Moving Sites and Subsites into another Site

If there is a need to move sites and subsites into another site within the same web application, this can be easily performed using the "Site Manager". Often times, this option is over-looked, in favor of site templates, or other backup and restore operations. However, this is the simplest option available.

Note: This site is available on "SharePoint Online or Office 365 Dedicated" as well as any stand-alone SharePoint installation, on the basis that you activate the Publishing Features within SharePoint.

If you visit "http://enter_your_site_url/_layouts/sitemanager.aspx", you'll see the Site Manager, where you can do a move operation of all pages and sub-sites.

  1. Select the parent site of the sub-site you want to move in the left navigation pane.
  2. Check the box next to the sub-site you want to move in the right pane.
  3. Click the Actions drop-down and click Move.
  4. Select Destination of the sub-site selected in the next dialog.
