Hello,

How can I display the name of a logged in customer in the header?
I want to display something like Hello, John Doe.
Thank you in advance! :)

Add this to the header.tpl file:

Code: Select all

<?php if ($this->customer->isLogged()) { ?>
Welcome <?php echo $this->customer->getFirstName(); ?> <?php echo $this->customer->getLastName(); ?>, Enjoy your stay!
<?php } ?>

It does not need an update, in this section, because this here is the V.1.5.x - Zone.

OC v.2 is entirely different, it does not even display some WELCOME 'related' Variable, therefore,
any (similar) Welcome Section Content, defined down to the last language File, involved,
would have to be added, to make it work.
Therefore, it must be done another way, to make it work with v.2

2.0 doesn't allow direct calls to libraries from the tpl.
For 2.0 you need to add it to the controller and set a view variable.

1. EDIT: catalog/controller/common/header.php

2. FIND:

Code: Select all

public function index () {
3. AFTER, ADD:

Code: Select all

if ($this->customer->isLogged()) {
    $data['welcome_message'] = sprintf("Welcome %s %s, Enjoy your stay!", $this->customer->getFirstName(), $this->customer->getLastName());
}
4. EDIT: catalog/view/theme/YOURTHEME/template/common/header.tpl

5. PUT THIS WHERE YOU WANT IT:

Code: Select all

<?php if (isset($welcome_message)) { echo $welcome_message; } ?>

After a few checks, I placed it as shown below, to make it look swell. Since my 'OC v2 like No Shop Software' uses no last name, I removed the lastName Line, and one piece of %s, to make it work:

Code: Select all

public function index() {
if ($this->customer->isLogged()) {
$data['welcome_message'] = sprintf("Welcome %s, Enjoy your stay!", $this->customer->getFirstName());
}
Question:
my public function index() { looks like this, and others look like this: public function index () {
now, wich one is written correctly, anyway !?

just to mention it!

Thanks for your reply.
However I have not been able to get it right.
Could you please specify where exactly in header.tpl to put the last piece of code?

Hi,

Add this code in catalog/language/english/common/header.php

Code: Select all

            
$_['text_logged']  = 'You are logged in as <b><a href="%s">%s</a></b> <b>(</b> <a href="%s">Logout</a> <b>)</b>';  
$_['text_welcome'] = 'Welcome visitor you can <a href="%s">login</a> or <a href="%s">create an account</a>.'; 
$_['text_welcome'] = 'Welcome!';
 
Then add this code in catalog/controller/common/header.php
after ($data['text_shopping_cart'] = $this->language->get('text_shopping_cart');)

Code: Select all

$data['text_welcome'] = sprintf($this->language->get('text_welcome'), $this->url->link('account/login', '', 'SSL'), $this->url->link('account/register', '', 'SSL'));
And then add this code in catalog/view/theme/YOUR_THEME/template/common/header.tpl

Code: Select all

<?php if ($logged) { ?>
<?php echo $text_logged; ?>
<?php } else { ?>
<?php echo $text_welcome; ?>
<?php } ?>
After all changes update modification.

Enjoy!

In OC 2.3.2.0, the OcMod Extension exactly matches the Code, and would so function,
at least in an OC Default Theme.

Well, try this OcMod, it's untested, since I don't use this Version, but I cross-checked
the Content with an OC v.3.0.2.0, and it should work with a Default Theme.
Good Luck! ;)
