CakePHP - NewBie How to pass the session id of the logged in user in the header


Recommended Posts

Hey Peeps,


What is the best way to access the session id of a logged in user in the header.ctp file which is in the views/element directory. Basically I have a link called My Account in the header file, and I want to display the logged In user info, once the user logs in.


I have the following link in the code:

<li><?php echo $html->link('My Account', '/users/view/'); ?></li>


But I want to pass the logged in user id in the view?


I have included the following 

var $helpers = array('Session');

in the app_helper file but don't know how to get the session id and pass it to the view.
