Is there a pronoun for "the currently logged in user"?

Shaun Griffith Dec 08, 2017

In a recent question, one answer was to insert a macro for user content. Essentially,

{content-by-user:user.name}

 Is there a pronoun that will always resolve to the current user? That is, so each user can see content based on their own username?

Hi Shaun,

you can write a wrapper around this macro.

Create a new user macro, call it e.g. content-by-logged-in-user.

The macro has no body and this template:

## Macro title: content-by-logged-in-user
##
## Developed by: Thomas Schlegel
## @noparams

#set($userkey=$action.getRemoteUser().getKey())

<p>
<ac:structured-macro ac:name="content-by-user" ac:schema-version="1">
<ac:parameter ac:name="">
<ri:user ri:userkey="$userkey"/>
</ac:parameter>
</ac:structured-macro>
</p>

OK. I was hoping for something built in, but I understand. (Wanders off to figure out how to create a macro...)

@Shaun Griffith

Creating a user macro is not such a big thing. Maybe my article might help you with that:

This is about creating a user macro for another purpose, but the basics are the same.
