$is_signed_in variable is not available in portlet.vm

    Details

      Description

      Problem:
      It's not possible to check if a user is signed in with $is_signed_in variable in portlet.vm.

      Reproduction:
      Create custom a portlet.vm with a #if($is_signed_in) statement.
      Select the theme and check if the if statement works as expected.

      Use-case:
      We have a "favorite this portlet" button in each portlet header which is only visible for all logged in users (So not guests). The most straight forward way to show/hide this button is using the $is_signed_in check.

      We've now implemented it with a CSS workaround which isn't optimal.
