Returns a Person Object if $POD is authenticated. Otherwise returns null.

NOTE: Be sure to check $POD->isAuthenticated() or set the lockdown parameter on your $POD before using $POD->currentUser(). If there is no current user to access, an error will occur!


Display the current user's name, or "Stranger" for someone not logged in.

if ($POD->isAuthenticated()) {
} else {
    echo "Stranger";
