I have a community site, and if you click on most of the members it will redirect to the following page :-

 http:// vstg01:40708/discussionforum/generalDiscussion/_layouts/15/userdisp.aspx?ID=20&Source=http%3A%2F%2Fgvstg01%3A40708%2Fdiscussionforum%2FgeneralDiscussion%2FSitePages%2FMembers%2Easpx

since these members did not create personal sites. While for users who have personal site, clicking on their names inside the members section will redirect to the following page:-

http:// vstg01/my/Person.aspx?accountname=i%3A0%23%2Ew%7Cad%2Dgroup%5Ctarek%2Emeliti&Source=http%3A%2F%2Fgvstg01%3A40708%2Fdiscussionforum%2FgeneralDiscussion%2F%5Flayouts%2Fuserdisp%2Easpx%3FForce%3D1%26ID%3D13%26Source%3Dhttp%253A%252F%252Fgvstg01%253A40708%252Fdiscussionforum%252FgeneralDiscussion%252FSitePages%252FMembers%252Easpx%26AjaxDelta%3D1%26isStartPlt1%3D1380191695010&Title=Discussion%20Forum

but the problem is that I have deleted all the personal sites for the members, since we do not need this. but still clicking on the members will redirect to a “Page not found “. can anyone advice on this ? baring in min d I did a iisreset after deleting the personal site collections.

Central Administration -> Manage Service Applications -> User Profile Synchoronization -> Manage user permissions -> uncheck Create Personal Site

Here you can enable/ disable a lot of things related to MySites and User Profiles. To disable mysite creation uncheck the item that says "Create Personal Site".


SEE: Disable _layouts/userdisp.aspx redirecting to MySite/Person.aspx?

    If you don't want them to use My Sites.. Delete the existing ones and disable Creating My Site option! Commented Sep 26, 2013 at 12:00
  • thanks for the link,, but it seems that it did not answer the question.. and they are talking about modifying the personla page , and not preventing the redirection..
