What’s the simplest thing that could possibly go wrong?

You’d think I’d have learned my lesson, but apparently not. While the build was finally underway last night, I noticed that my search box made the layout a bit odd when you were logged in, so moved the sign out and edit profile links alongside “Welcome your name” instead of underneath. While I was there, I recklessly changed it to “Welcome, your name” (with a comma). This time it couldn’t possibly break anything, so I checked it in and went home.

Yes, you guessed it.

verify_text_present 'Welcome Fred Bloggs'

The really embarassing thing is the checkin comment though.

Move welcome message to same line as sign out/edit profile, to make room for search. This one will *not* break the build...
