We’re pleased to announce that all users of PBworks will soon have access to nested folders. This means that soon you will be able to place a folder inside of another folder.
This has been one the the top requests from users and we’re excited to release this feature to our entire user base – including free users!
The PBworks Security Model
Nested Folders is deceptively simple feature, particularly with premium workspaces that have folder level permissions.
Placing a folder inside a parent folder works exactly the same as placing a page inside a folder. If a folder has no security controls, it will adopt the security controls on the ‘parent’ folder. If the folder has specific security controls, they will override those set by the ‘parent’ folder.
As always, the more specific security controls override those more general controls.
