When trying to enable a feature, such as Publishing, you may encounter the following error:

Required Feature

One or more features must be turned on before this feature can be activated.

If you can see Site Collection Administration

  1. You need to go to the root site of the site collection and enable the feature
  2. Site Actions > Site Settings > Site Collection Administration
  3. Office SharePoint Server Publishing Infrastructure > Click on activate

If you do not see Site Collection Administration

You need to make yourself a site admin

  1. go to central admin
  2. Click on the Application Management tab
  3. Under SharePoint Site Mangement > click on Site collection administrators
  4. Add yourself at the secondary administrator or talk to the administrator listed
  5. Follow steps to activate (above)

You should now be able to create a publishing or news site!

You can now enable Publishing features on a site or subsite!
