    GetCurrentMember in 4.6.1

    Has anyone tried umbraco.library:GetCurrentMember() from xslt in 4.6.1?  It's returning a blank string for me when a member is logged in, and when trying it to test without isloggedon it creates 

    No current member exists (best practice is to validate with 'isloggedon()' prior to this call)

    When a member isn't logged in.

    Hi Dan

    Could this maybe have something to do with this Codeplex issue?

    Seems like there has been a change.

    No it's not related to that codeplex issue. The user IS logged on but umbraco.library:GetCurrentMember() fails to "see" the current logged on member and doesn't return anything.
    It works in 4.6.1 but it changed in somewhere along the nigtly builds, and it's still a problem in 4.7 beta

    Suddenly I got this, too. IsLoggedOn() is true, but GetCurrentMember() returns 'No current member exists'.

    I am using 4.7RC and it worked for some couple of days. Don't know what has changed since then, I will do some further investigation.

    Hi Christian

    In 4.7 it seems that there actually is a bug with this:

    Thanks Jan!

    After some trial and error I got a work-around for this issue:

    Member.GetAllAsList().Where(m => m.Id == Member.CurrentMemberId()).Single().LoginName;
