    Get Current Member and Profile Image

    Hi Guys,

    Can someone point out how do i get to display the currentMember Name or other detailed information stored in the db and member section?

    <xsl:value-of select="umbraco.library:GetCurrentMember()/@email"/>

    But How about Razor??

    I have tried this

     <xsl:variable name="member" select="umbraco.library:GetCurrentMember()" />

    <xsl:value-of select="umbraco.library:GetDictionaryItem('FirstName')" />
            <input type="text" id="firstName" name="firstName" value="{$member/@firstName}" />

    But nothing returned. but when i called @loginName it returned properly. is anybody know that how i can get the member information?

    Hi Merves

    If you're using an Umbraco version that is higher than 4.5.x then it's probably something like $member/firstName you should write (An element rather than an attribute). However to be sure what XML you have you can write the following

    <xsl:copy-of select="$member" />

    Now you can see what the XML returned looks like and figure out what element to fetch in your value-of.

    @Fuji: Have a look at this post and - seems to me it has some interesting points

    You should also be able to make use of all the known extensions in Razor, which you can find documentation for here: - However there currently is no documentation examples using Razor. But I think that reading through the mentioned post above should get you going.

    Hope this helps.
