Check the WordPress user status on any template

Ever wanted to check if a user is logged into the website and display a different set of menus, welcoming text or restricted area?

This is quite easy to do using some simple PHP and some WordPress prebuilt features. Try the following code on any page in your custom template and you should see it working right away.

if(is_user_logged_in()) {
 echo "Hi I am logged in" ;
}else{
 echo "Oh no I am not logged in" ;
}
