Displaying a logged in users name on all backend homepage.


Ok I have figured out how to display a users name on a page.

e.g welcome: {session.sessionname}

I was able to do this by creating the session on the login page, server behaviour, "authenticate user". I went to step 3/3 and added 2 sessions, one for firstname column and another for lastname column. Then I went to my admin homepage and bind the sessions to the page. So I get e.g.

Welcome John Doe.

What I need help on is I need to display the users userLevel next to the name.

e.g. Welcome John Doe {session.userLeveltextdescription}

The problem is if I use the session variable in my parent table I will get the userlevel ID so it will display an integer. How would I get the session to display the text value of the userlevel ID according to the logged in user?

ps I have a bad feeling this has something to do with parameters, which I have no clue how to use, so I would be grateful if this can be explained indepth including all the neccessary recordsets and server behaviours I would need for the page. I have linked the login redirect page to this admin homepage so in addition I just need to know all the php the admin homepage needs to function.

Many Thanks in advance
