I made a custom site map provider for the left nav on the My Site Host and it works perfectly, however, all of the personal my sites have a different site map than the host. I thought I could remedy this by creating a custom master page stapler. The funny thing is when I activate the stapler, the css for all the personal sites change, just not the site map on the left nav. Has anyone run into this before? Is there anything I can do about it? I thought maybe it's because SharePoint Server Publishing wasn't on at the site level, but it error's out when I try to Activate it.

You can try this solution: https://lixuan0125.wordpress.com/2013/08/20/sharepoint-2013-customize-followed-sitesdocuments-left-navigation/ The quick links of the personal sites will follow the one of the MySite host.

It worked for me.

Keep me in touch,

Good luck
