Can "publish" skip the top-level site folder?

I think I know the answer ("no") but want to verify. Let's say Base Folder includes website in which we've placed the folders that make our site. Experience shows me that unless website is allowed to publish, nothing below can publish.

You see, we have a suite of sites; I'd hoped to place each in a folder rather than asking our Cascade administrators to make "sites" within the top-of-page dropdown list of sites.

And if it isn't obvious, yes, I'm relatively new to Cascade.

Thanks!

    Hi there,

    You are correct in your assumption that you will not be able to publish an asset unless its entire folder hierarchy is publishable.

    You see, we have a suite of sites; I'd hoped to place each in a folder rather than asking our Cascade administrators to make "sites" within the top-of-page dropdown list of sites.

    Site objects are by far the preferred method as they allow for more granular control of access/permissions while also providing a number of features that aren't available in the Global area (which is deprecated and will be removed from future versions of the product). Did you run across any specific issues as you attempted to generate Site objects for these sites or has it not been attempted yet?

    Let me know and I'll be happy to answer any questions you might have.

    Thanks

    Thanks, Tim. We are a school within a large institution, and don't admin "sites." We'd instead ask our institution's Cascade administrators to do that for us. In fact I don't see any properties of a site -- no interface element that means "this site."
