We use SharePoint 2010.

We have 2 web applications, one for normal content and the other for mysites - AAM is set up so these web apps are accessible from outside our network. We would like to be able to have a link to a users mysite (e.g. http://mysite) in a summary link web part. When we hardcode this link, when a user connects from outside and is placed in the Internet zone, the link does not change to the internet zone of the mysite web application.

Is there a way of dynamically doing this?

Generally speaking the default zone URL should be the most available, i.e. with a FQDN.

Can you not just hard code the FDQN and ensure that the URL is accessible internally and externally?

Hi, thought about doing that, but one is http and the other https :( I'm guessing from this that there isn't an easy way of doing this! – John Bevan Jul 25 '11 at 10:57
