Hi, Newbie here, but programming for 35 years.
I have loaded the cakedc/users plugin and he admin LTE theme. I have users that login. I want the current user name and information to appear in the top nav, not the hard coded alex user.
I have copied the template to src/Templates/Element/nav-top.ctp I can edit the template and changes take effect. I tried $this->User->last_name but it produces no output. just to test that I have the correct format $this->User->logout() produces the logout link. How do I get individual fields?
