    I would like to have "My Account" text next to the login name that links to the user profile page. Is there a way to do this? Or what is the best way to link to the user profile page so that a non-logged-in user can't get there? It would be nice to have it work off the login name. Thanks.

    Hi Eric,

    What  you need to do is to modify the template of the login control and map it in Sitefinity. I've attached the template, where I've changed the text property of the username label. To map it to the login control navigate to Administration -> Settings -> Advanced -> Controls -> ViewMap and fill the form as following:

    HostType: Telerik.Sitefinity.Web.UI.PublicControls.LoginControl
    LayoutTemplatePath: ~/UserControls/LoginControlCustom.ascx (the path to your template)

    After that, go to Advanced properties of the login widget and in the DestinationPageUrl field enter the path to the page, where your login control should lead. Also, to restrict access of anonymous users to that page, you need to set permissions to it, so that it would be visible only for a certain user.
