<!–SPM: –>

Giving parse error as control not found. Please help me.


Based on the tutorial , you should add the following code at Master Page file rather than HTML file. and try to use " rather than as the following

<%@Register Tagprefix="SPSWC" Namespace="Microsoft.SharePoint.Portal.WebControls" Assembly="Microsoft.SharePoint.Portal, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=71e9bce111e9429c" %>

add this

<SPSWC:ProfilePropertyLoader runat="server" />

<SPSWC:ProfilePropertyImage PropertyName="PictureUrl" style="float: left; height: 20px;" ShowPlaceholder="true" id="PictureUrlImage" runat="server"/>

Note: Don't forget to take a backup before modifying the Master Page
