Users unable to see public link in quick launch of my site

    Question

  • Hi

    I want to put public link in quick launch of my site in sharepoint 2013. For this I go to site settings>Quick Launch and set desired link in “Current Navigation”, but when other users visit my site, they can’t see this link! Why this happen?

    How I can put link to Quick Launch of my site that every users can see it?

     thanks.

  • Hi,

    It is by design that the custom navigation links added in users’ My Site are only visible to users themselves.

    As a workaround, I recommend you to modify your own My Site’s master page to display the quick launch links as you want.

  • Hi Victoria

    Thanks for your reply.

    Could you explain me how I can modify My sites’s master page to show quick launch and custom links?

    Actually our users in their my site’s in sharepoint 2010 used custom link in quick launch of their my sites and gave these addresses to others to refer to them. Now in my site in sharepoint 2013 how users  can have this functionality in quick launch?

  • Hi,

    This is a change from SharePoint 2010 to SharePoint 2013, so if you still want to have the experience as SharePoint 2010, then you need to create your own master page for My Site in SharePoint 2013.

    You can create a brand new master page or customize the default master page. For this part, you need to consult your developers for this to achieve your goal.

    Best Regards,

    Victoria

    According to your saying, I have a question. If my site of sharepoint 2013 don’t allow me to put custom link for someone who visits my site, so what functionality of giving audience in site setting> quick launch?!

  • Hi,

    The links created with audience set are also not be able to be viewed by other users. And MySite site template is different from team sites and some features may not be considered completely when designing the MySite site template.
