 The subsites feature was introduced in CMSimple_XH 1.5. However, it turned out, that the feature was too limited, complicated the administration and caused problems with several plugins, so it was removed altogether from CMSimple_XH 1.6. In the following, several use-cases of the subsite feature are described and alternatives are given how to realize these use-cases without it. The subsites feature was introduced in CMSimple_XH 1.5.

-If all else fails, you may consider having a look at [[http://​cmsimple.org/​|CMSimple v4]], which is a fork of CMSimple_XH 1.5.3 offering a more sophisticated subsite solution.

Currently CMSimple v4 is mostly compatible with CMSimple_XH plugins, but that might change over time.

 As the maximum size of the contents of a CMSimple_XH website is somewhat limited, a large website could be split to several subsites. However, some of the nice functionality of CMSimple_XH won't work this way (for instance, the top level menu has to be built manually, and the search won't work across subsites). As the maximum size of the contents of a CMSimple_XH website is somewhat limited, a large website could be split to several subsites.

-**Alternative**:​ check out, if your content is really to large to be handled without subsites. Due to increased computing power and improvements in PHP, even  a few hundred pages with a total size of MB will probably cause no objectionable performance loss. Furthermore you may be able to drastically reduce the content size by removing unnecessary markup (which might have been inserted from an old WYSIWYG editor).+**Alternative**:​ check out, if your content is really to large to be handled without subsites.

 If your content is actually too large to be handled with a single CMSimple_XH site, you may consider to split it across several CMSimple_XH installations,​ to transfer parts of it to a plugin, or even to switch to another CMS using a database. If your content is actually too large to be handled with a single CMSimple_XH site, you may consider to split it across several CMSimple_XH installations,​ to transfer parts of it to a plugin, or even to switch to another CMS using a database.
