Hello everyone.

Let me explain my issue:
I have a website and I'm using pathauto to display the username of the current user in the URL. To do so, I used the Content Path pattern:
[current-user:name]/[node:title]/, it displays my username fine (http://xx.xxxxx.com/username1/services), but when I switch to another account, username1 is still displayed! Normally, it would display username2. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you!

Pathauto aliases are not dynamic. They are generated and saved when the content or user is edited/saved, and not generated until the user is updated. I would *highly* not recommend using [current-user] in your alias patterns, it just isn't designed to work like that.
