Purpose of the mod

One more that my users asked for:
If the logged in user is also registered in the database (i.e. has an individual-ID), the Info-menu will have a selection at the bottom: My Page.
The link is also added to the leftmenu bar from v3.
Selecting it will open the user's getperson.php.


This mod was developed by Erik Hoppe.
