I have a main portal that works just fine. I need to setup a child portal that has its own skin and customized content (unrelated to the parent portal in some ways).
I tried to setup a child portal under the parent portal, but it doesn't work. When I try to go to the URL I want to use for the child portal, it redirects me to the main parent portal. I set up the child portal from the portals interface and specified it
was a child. I also gave it an Alias that points to the child subdirectory...
http://myDNNsite.com/myChildPortal/... Oh - I have created and installed the skin without issue...
What are the steps to properly setup a child portal that looks different than the parent portal??

Add a New Child Site
Sites will be created using the default properties defined in the Host Settings module (HostFee, HostSpace, DemoPeriod). Once the site is created, these properties can be modified by the Host Administrator on the Admin > Site Settings page of the site.
Once the portal is created, you will need to login using the Administrator information specified at Security Settings.

I thought I'd followed all of that verbatim - I missed step 3... I think that may be causing the problems. I'll try it and confirm.
I need to delete the two dummy child portals I was trying to create (but they are out of whack). I see in the online help that there is only a way to delete aliases...
is there a way to fully delete a child portal within the Admin interface??

I just deleted a Portal by editing the portal and then clicking the Delete Link near the bottom of the portal admin page. This should work for Children portals too.
But if it is out of whack you may need to delele manually the folder that was created under the Portals subdirectory and then remove any references to that PortalID that are in the database. The portals table has Cascade Delete turned on so if you delete
the Portal from that table it should remove all related records for you.
Make sure you know which Portal subdirectory to delete for the two that are "out of whack". Good luck.
