Change “My Dashboard” to Include {$username} on OxWall Based Websites

Today I am going to show you guys how to change the title “My Dashboard” to something a little cooler and more personable. Feel free to leave some comments and let me know what you think or what you changed your title to say!

The code used in this video is as follows:

*****************************(CHANGE THIS)*****************************
$this->setPageHeading(OW::getLanguage()->text(‘base’, ‘dashboard_heading’));

*****************************(TO THIS)*****************************
$displayName = BOL_UserService::getInstance()->getDisplayName(OW::getUser()->getId());

$this->setPageHeading(OW::getLanguage()->text(‘base’, ‘dashboard_heading’, array(‘username’ => $displayName)));

Now change the language “My Dashboard” to include the following….

Hello {$username}!

    I have an adult site using oxwall Platform version 1.8.0 (build 9900)
    Tried to change the dashboard to say user name but didn’t work
    Should this code change work with version 1.8.0 ?
