Logged User Welcome

Logged User Welcome
OpenCart has a somewhat weird and static way of dealing with the "login" issue. Users need to click on "My Account" to see Login/Register buttons. Consequently, irrespective of whether they are logged in or not, they always see only the "My Account" link on top - there is no indication at all whether they are logged in or not.

This is disconcerting in general, but is an actual problem for users with ADD or advanced age. Hence this extension.

This extension does something exceedingly simple. For logged in users, it replaces the "My Account" link anchor text with the logged in user's name, just like they would expect in GMail, etc. If they click on their name, they still go to the My Account page.

Installation v 3.0+ and Updates
  1. From OpenCart Admin > Extensions > Extensions Installer, upload the ocmod.zip file you have downloaded.
  2. After success message, go to OpenCart Admin > Extensions > Modifications, and click the Refresh button.
