    I would like when people are logged in, it shows them logged in with their email address rather than their username, as I am hiding the username and letting them just use their email address as their username, seeing a username will be confusing. I saw that it is set by string, $user, what is the string for the email address so I can replace it with that, and will that work? Thanks!

    version 4.2.11

    I also noticed all my fonts on my payment pages (for authorizing credit card tranasactions) have defaulted to Times New Roman and no matter where I specify it to be Arial, it stays Times New Roman. I can't find a style to change it, or to force it on the page itself

    If you are referring to the membership page and this seems to be controlled by _top.phtml and this line
    Code:
        <?php __e('Logged in as %s', $user->login) ?>. <a href="<?php echo REL_ROOT_URL?>/login/logout"><?php __e('Logout')?></a>
    Don't know if changing that line to
    Code:
        <?php __e('Logged in as %s', $user->email) ?>. <a href="<?php echo REL_ROOT_URL?>/login/logout"><?php __e('Logout')?></a>
    will work
