In this post we will discuss one of the wired issue happened to me during SharePoint migration (from 2010 to 2013). On SharePoint portal, some users (mainly users that don’t have MySite) are not able to follow sites.
Read some SharePoint 2013 tutorials below:
- Promoted Results in SharePoint 2013
- Picture Library Slide Show Web Part in SharePoint 2013
- SharePoint Server 2016 Installation FREE PDF guide
For instance, when a user, e.g. Test1 clicks on “Follow” link on any SharePoint site, he/she will be redirected to the Newsfeed page of the user with page content “We’re almost ready!”.
However, the user will never see his Newsfeed page with the sites that he/she is following.
Self-Service Site Creation was not enabled on the MySite host web application.
As found on this article , you have to enable Self-Service Site Creation for My Site host web application.
