I was wondering how people place the greeting like:
 Hello, Gumdroppe! (insert your name)
Into their homepage boxes??

Thanks in advance!!

I don't think we can change the very top where it says, "Welcome, login_name"

In my Welcome box, I just used the Block variable:

$block[username]

in the spot I wanted it to place the currently logged in person's account name.

Is there a way to put something like "GUEST" in if they are not logged into a Guildportal account?

 Indeed you can.

Edit the Welcome box content and from the "Editing Welcome for:" menu, select Default or Public.

Then put something in the content like:

"Welcome Guest!  We hope you enjoy your visit to our web site..."

I am not yet sure why there is a Default & a Public.  However, if you have anything in Public, it negates anything in Default.  Either are presented to visitors to the site who have not logged in.  Maybe Public is for those who login but are not members of the site.

As I understand it, default is just that, default. That is, it shows for any group that does not have a custom message defined. I put my public information in Public and my members-only information (e.g. Ventrilo server & password) in the Default message, so all associates/members/officers/etc. get the private info, while the Public message overrides it for non-members.
