Is User Profile Services required?

Yes, this control is essentially just displaying a user's "Quick Links" and "Memberships" which are built into/part of the User Profile Service.

Sorry. one more question would the search only wsp work without UPS?

Not currently, but that's a great idea and I can easily make the necessary changes. I'll let you know when an updated version of the solution has been posted.

I added a new option called "ShowQuickLinks". The default value is "true", but if the User Profile Service is not available this value will change to "false". I also added a new .wsp file to the download page called "Search Only, No My/Quick Links". It will not even attempt to use the any of the features that depend on the User Profile Service. Let me know if you have any questions or problems with the new build.

Just wanted to reach back and let you know everything works great! Thank you so much for making that change. I really like this and later on down the line when we get to user profile services we can enable the other stuff. Really helpful stuff. Thank you again.
