Using @username on the Web

Is it possible to get the users name to display over the Web? I have a created a username authors field using the @username formula. However, it appears on the web as Anonymous. And I need to see the users need to see if they have permissions, etc to create, edit certain information.

The function @Username does work in a Domino Web application to a browser. The documentation states that it works and I have used it myself.

Make sure that you have:

- Disallowed Anonymous access in the database ACL so that all users are forced to log on.

- Put usernames and passwords for all authorized users in the Domino Directory (NAMES.NSF).
