SharePoint 2007: Creating a link to the Portal Home

When you have different site collections, you normally need to create a link to the Portal. To do this you just need to click on the Site Settings of the Current Site Collection and find Portal Site Connection under the Site Collection Administration. Here you enter the name to give to the link and the url of the portal.

For My Sites, you should go to your _layouts/settings.aspx page located at http://Portal/MySite/_layouts/settings.aspx (or replace /MySite with the URL of your My Sites Site Collection), and create a Portal Site Connection from that page. My Sites will then have a link to Portal too.
