in reply to Grab username from WP Cookie

You should show the full cookies here; you can get them out of any dev panel. It would be an egregious security error to put the user name in the cookie though so I’d be surprised if it’s there in any WP version that is even remotely modern. Passing around authentication from one codebase to another based on nothing but a cookie name or value without confirmation—secure, current, valid session lookup—would also be entirely heinous.
