Disable the link to a persons mysite

  Asked By: Rachel    Date: May 22    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 1700

We currently have the creation of MySites turned off. However, when one
of my users was creating a site and adding users, she found that if you
click on the person's name, it is a link to the public side of MySites.
Is there a way to either turn off the links or to prevent a public side
of MySites from being created?

Go into IIS and stop the site. The downfall is the site  starts on a server

I guess I needed to give more facts. There are a handful of executives
that have fully functioning MySites. This would also disable  them.

The public  side of everyone's mysite  is the same for every mysite. Its not
something that is created  along with a Mysite. Its a page in the Mysite root
that is populated from information stored in people's profiles. You might be
able to deactivate the link, but there's no reason to. It doesn't consume any
extra space.

Also, whether you allow MySite or not, everyone still has a profile page, which
is what you are likely getting when you click on the person's link. The profile
page looks like a MySite, has the MySite link  etc, and is even part of a users
MySite, but if you look at the URL, you will see it is slightly different from
what the actual MySite would be. You can, if you want, go into the settings of
the SSP and remove the permissions to Manage personal features and create a
personal site. I'm not a big fan of this as it takes away some good methods for
getting people using SharePoint.
