SharePoint 2010 how did you get the "Welcome" text before the name? I just want to put the word "Welcome" after the username displayed the sign in of SharePoint.

So it should say Welcome User.

I created my own welcome.ascx from the original welcome.

You can use a JavaScript/JQuery code to insert the "Welcome" text before the name.

Using JQuery code you insert the "Welcome" text in the SearchTopLine class.


 $(".SearchTopLine span a").prepend("Welcome ");
