Get outta MySite !

When a Sharepoint “MySite” is created from a Shared Service Provider (SSP), the default site created has the following link buttons added :

  • My Home
  • My Profile

These allow a user to create/update their details, and their public/private view of the “MySite”.


But, there is often the question of “how do we get back to the portal home page ??

There are some configuration settings within SharePoint Central Admin that allow you to add additional links :

  • Navigate to the SSP settings page and click on personalisation links


  • Add a new personalisation link


  • Enter the settings for the link – the URL and Description.
  • Make sure you include /# on the end of the URL – this breaks out of the mysite web application.
