I am trying to pass a member's firstName and lastName to the title on a member profile page. I am using segment 2 to capture the username. This works well in the for loop in the block:

{% set thePartner = craft.users.username( craft.request.getSegment(2) ) %}
{% for partner in thePartner %}
First Name and Last Name: {{ partner.firstName}} {{ partner.lastName }}
{% endfor %)

Outside the block, where I set the <title>, it doesn't work. Essentially, I would like to set the full name and use it in the title, like:

{% set fullname = partner.firstName ~ ' ' ~ partner.lastName %}

with something like the following in _layout:

<title>{{ fullname }} | {{ siteUrl }} </title>

How can I pass the full name through?

As you probably don't have only profile pages on your site, remember to only render fullname into the <title> of your _layout template if the var is actually set: {{ fullname ? fullname ~ '|' }}! – carlcs Aug 2 '14 at 17:00

Since you're just expecting one, you should only look for one. Then you don't have to use a for loop. Plus, fullName is already an attribute of user models. So you can do this for the title:

{% set thePartner = craft.users.username( craft.request.getSegment(2) ).first() %}
<title>{{ thePartner.fullName }} | {{ siteUrl }} </title>

If you're still having trouble, it may be with what segments you are pulling from the URL.

That's the ticket. Thank you. – Shanan Galligan Aug 2 '14 at 18:41
