USERNAME -- your login username

Foswiki makes names available in three formats: USERNAME like jsmith, WIKINAME like JohnSmith and WIKIUSERNAME like Main.JohnSmith. Un-authenticated users are all WikiGuest.

This macro is an alias for the USERINFO macro with a fixed format="$username".
ALERT! The login username is considered "protected" information by default and will not be revealed to non-admin users.


Parameter Description

  • %USERNAME% expands to guest
  • %USERNAME{AdminUser}% expands to ==
    ALERT! When used in a template topic, this macro will be expanded when the template is used to create a new topic. See TemplateTopics for details
