      Description

      Currently Liferay provides two ways of creating sites: communities and organizations. This causes confusion to some users who don't know which one to use and makes it harder to design a portal because it requires deciding up front.

      The goal of this improvement is to make it more obvious how to create a site in Liferay while preserving the benefits and differences that currently exist in organizations and communities
