    I'm trying to reference a custom field in the nav bar

    Basically - a quick launch button for our clients to be able to launch their application (When the field is populated)


    <!-- eSP Launcher -->
                            <xen:if is="{$user.customFields.esellerproclient}">
                                <a href="{$user.customFields.esellerproclient}" target="_blank" class="navLink"><img src="http://domain.com/styles/drift/images/esp2.png"></img></a>
    So I'm trying to reference an image - if the field is populated...

    However, I've populated the field - yet it fails to populate.





    Basically - I DO NOT want this field displayed in the user info (Banner) or visible on the user's profile.

    It's a private URL, so needs to remain that way - But we want clients to be able to launch the application by clicking the image in the nav bar.

    Any ideas?

    I;ve tried using Div's (referencing them in the EXTRA.css too) and also the same "il class" as the home icon.... no joy... Any ideas?

    Instead of $user, try $visitor

    $visitor is always the currently logged on user.

    I have to be honest I only glanced over what you put so far but certainly that would need correcting first.

    Thank you sincerely, Chris - this worked and everything is functional - I wasn't aware of $visitor... You're a life saver! Right in time for the company demonstration at tomorrow's customer Roadshow!

    I can't thank you enough!!!!!!!!
