How to display the current user name in master page?

  Asked By: Hector    Date: Nov 14    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 5870

On the default master page, it has a "Welcome <your name>" menu on the
top.

How can I display the current user's name somewhere else on the page?

What other information about the current user is available?

There has to be a way to do it without writing a web part.

We ended up writing  a custom web  to display  this.

You think something THIS simple would be easier?

I followed these instructions for a 2003 SharePoint site. It was easy
and it worked GREAT!
