In SharePoint 2013, I am facing an issue when clicking on the User id, it redirects to MySite url:


Currently Mysites is not working and users are getting error message. Therefore is it possible to redirect any request that comes to mysites to another page (underconstruction.aspx)?

  • You should be able to hide the link via CSS. Use the developer tools (F12) to identify the object and then hide it. Could be the best solution.

Whenever I come under such requirement I always select the simpler and easy way to achieve it.

  • Just navigate to the MySite
  • Edit the page
  • Keep Content Editor WebPart
  • Write following JS code <script> window.location="http://UnderConstructionPageUrl"; </script>
  • Save the page

Once the MySite is ready just go and delete this Content Editor WebPart.

I wish it could help you or inform me if you need some other approach.

  • I don't have a mysite enabled on SharePoint, that is the reason why we don't want the error to appear and get it redirected to a page that says Under Constrction.
