This is something that has bugged me for a LONG time .. I cannot possibly understand why SharePoint Online (with one of the most powerful Web Content Management Systems) was so thoroughly limited by cutting back to a really basic template editor. I can only think of 2 reasons:

  1. Microsoft assumes the average user won’t know how to use SharePoint, so wanted to provide a simpler user interface. This is fair enough, and if this IS the reason there should be no reason why I can’t go "behind the scenes" and setup the site any way I like (at my own risk .. as it were).
  2. Microsoft is trying to protect revenue from "SharePoint 2010 Server Internet Facing Sites" licenses. These are VERY expensive and a lot of companies will happily get rid of their on-premise install to put in a £80 a year Office 365 E1 plan to host their website.

Now .. if it is case (1) then we should be good to go. If it is case (2) then they probably have terms and conditions specifically stopping someone from doing this… so first off lets get the disclaimer out of the way 🙂

Hi All,

createsiteinnewdb: will Create a site at the specified Uniform Resource Locator (URL) and create a new content database using the user name and password you specify. If you do not specify a template to use, the owner can choose a template when he or she first browses to the site.
Example:
