Google Sites Support Follow

On November 22, 2016: Google launched a rebuilt version of Sites. The existing Sites API cannot access or modify Sites made with the new version, but can still access classic Sites.

This means that any new version Google Sites cannot be displayed as a separate tab in Hapara Products, as there is no current API support. The Hapara team has engaged Google to open API access to new version Sites and we will update this article as we learn more.

New Sites will display in the student tile in the Sharing tab of Hapara Dashboard alongside student Docs, Sheets, Slides, etc.


Not all existing features are available in the new version sites yet, so please be sure to send feedback to Google to voice your feature requests and bug reports as Google does not monitor these forums.

There are migration tools available to migrate old Sites to new Sites, and we're hoping API access will open up soon so we can bring visibility of new sites to Hapara Dashboard ASAP.

For a comparison of new sites, please see this article: Classic Sites vs. New Sites

NOTE: You can continue using Classic Sites in your domain, which is supported in Hapara.

Please see this article on Re-enabling Classic Sites for visibility within Hapara Dashboard.

If you're unsure whether a Google site is a classic version or a new version, you can check the URL, as published sites have a subtle difference in the URL structure to classic sites. Classic sites have /a/ in the published URL where new sites do not:

New Sites are enabled by default, this configuration can be changed by a Domain Super Administrator in the G-Suite Admin Console. There are instructions how to enable Classic Sites here.
