Description Jamie Hari 2007-06-08 19:26:59 UTC
It would be a handy feature to allow users to place {{MYNAME}} on a given page, or in a given template.

The desired function would be that the user viewing it would populate the value with their own, unlinked user name.

For example,
Hello {{MYNAME}}!

If I was looking at it, would display as:
Hello Jamie!

But if you were looking at it, would look like:
Hello Brion/Rob/Tim!
