Hi,

I know about the cart bugs, but since they don't do anything if a user clicks them, I figured at worst, it was advertising for the shopping area ;)

The fix should have worked, by not returning the Username field at all.

I'll check to see why, but some things are different between versions of Links.
There is another way to do it, in the HTML end of the system.

Change your menu, or any test for "Username" to be:

<%if Username and Status%>

Status will only be set to a value if the user is logged in. That's the flag for "Registered", "Administrator" etc, so it will always be available if Username is available, and won't be available if it's not. (Unless a plugin or script does something funky).

These variables should really be prefaced with User_ but, not in this version ;)
