I have created a server control and want to place it in the person.aspx page on the My Site however do not want to edit the page through SharePoint Designer but want to edit the file itself from the file system (on the WFE). Where can i find the person.aspx on the WFE?
Now, I understand that we should not edit the SharePoint default pages. So I would like to insert my server control into the person.aspx page without really editing the file itself.
As of now, I have updated the person.aspx (from the site definition) page with the below entries
<% Register TagPrefix="my" Namespace="myControl.demo.Controls" Assembly="myControl.demo.Controls, Version=188.8.131.52, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=4b179e608e5a0adf" %>
and added the below entry under the "PlaceHolderMain" section:
<my:MyControl ID="MyControl" runat="server" LabeltoPropertyPair="Some Value :$Value to replace: ,"/>
however would like to do the same without really editing the page itself? How it can be achieved? should I need to use Feature stapling (I do not have any knowledge)?
