How can I get the id of the currently logged in user in MVC 5? I tried the StackOverflow suggestions, but they seem to be not for MVC 5.
Also, what is the MVC 5 best practice of assigning stuff to the users? (e.g. a User should have Items. Should I store the User's Id in Item? Can I extend the User class with an List<Item> navigation property?
I'm using "Individual User Accounts" from the MVC template.
