An easy-to-use lightweight WordPress Plugin that can show the currently logged in user name or other metadata.
Replaces a target menu item with alternate txt which can also include usermeta. User metadata would typically include ‘first-name’, ‘last-name’, ‘nickname’ etc
Any available usermeta may be used.
Optionally decorates the menu item with a user avatar. The avatar size is adjustable.
The target menu, the replacement text and the avatar are all set on the options menu which is found in [Settings|Logged In As]
Designed with the intention of being used in conjunction with a Membership plugin.
