Displaying usernames
« on: April 29, 2005, 07:09:48 pm »

This is probably blindingly obvious but...

I'd like to include a members username in a little message underneath the gallery description, example

- Gallery Name -
- Gallery Description -
Hello (user), welcome to the gallery.

... obviously automatically replace (user) with that persons username.

Is it possible?

I've tried things like adding: "Hello {USER_NAME}, welcome to the gallery" but that tag shows up instead of the username.

Sorry to waste your time with simple problems but I've tried everything I can think of and searched everywhere for an answer, it's driving me crazy  ???

Thanks for your help!

You can use the constant USER_NAME, but it has to be in PHP code. If you add it into the template as a placeholder then you have to treat it as a custom header.
