Pulling username into Page Management tab?

edited October 2006 in Vanilla 1.0 Help
I have the Page Management add-on & I want to pull in the username onto the page as a variable so it prefills my Gabbly chat iframe.

I just need it to fill this markup (brackets removed):

iframe src='' scrolling='no' style='width:300px; height:250px' frameborder='0'

Sooo... what code would I need to pull in the username?

    I'm a luddite, I need the exact code. <?php (something here) ?>

    It depends on how you are building your code. I've used that in extensions I've built, but that was in php.

    It's in the Page Management Extension. There's a form field for HTML & it says you can add PHP in. Hmm. Maybe I'll try a different approach.

    <iframe src='<?php echo(htmlspecialchars($GLOBALS['Context']->Session->User->Name)); ?>' scrolling='no' style='width:300px; height:250px' frameborder='0'>should work. I'm not 100% sure if the call to htmlspecialchars is needed, because the username might already be formatted by vanilla, but I suppose it's good to be sure.

    That works. Thanks!
