When a user is logged in, the object representing their account is available to all templates as $user.  That's probably the easiest way to customize the display.  You could try something like:

{if $user}{$user->firstname|escape} {$user->lastname|escape}{/if}

(the "if $user" probably isn't necessary, but I'm just being extra careful).

Subject: [VuFind-Tech] Username display on more than profile page?


I would like to display the patron name at the top of their list of checkouts (and maybe on other MyResearch pages).  So far, no luck.

I thought maybe since {$profile.firstname|trim|escape} displayed it on profile.tpl, I could use that.   Nope.

I thought that maybe there’d be something in Profile.php that I could copy and use in CheckoutOut.php to assign the variable there, but I didn’t see anything that looked promising.


Any suggestions?
