i want to create a visualforce page for community cloud that will show the logged in user's details. the following code just shows empty fields:

<apex:page standardController="User" showHeader="true">
  <apex:form >
          <apex:pageBlock >
              <apex:pageBlockButtons >
                  <apex:commandButton action="{!save}" value="Save"/>
                  <apex:commandButton action="{!edit}" value="Edit"/>
              <apex:pageBlockSection title="User Detail">
                  <apex:repeat value="{!$ObjectType.User.FieldSets.InspectorUserMain}" var="f">
                      <apex:outputField value="{!User[f]}" >
                          <apex:facet name="header">User Detail</apex:facet>
                          <apex:inlineEditSupport event="ondblclick"/>
              <apex:pageBlockSection title="Additional Information">
                  <apex:repeat value="{!$ObjectType.User.FieldSets.InspectorAdditionalData}" var="f">
                      <apex:outputField value="{!User[f]}" >
                          <apex:facet name="header">Additional Information</apex:facet>
                          <apex:inlineEditSupport event="ondblclick"/>

Any idea how to tell the page to show the logged in user's details???



Here's an idea. You can use the $User Global Variable to get the running user Id. With it, you can run a script that redirects to include this Id when it is left off.

<apex:page standardController="User">
    <apex:outputText value="{!User.Name}" />
        (function (w) {
            "use strict";
            if (!w.location.search || w.location.search.indexOf('id=') < 0) {
                w.location.search = '?id={!$User.Id}';

In theory, you should be able to do it without Javascript using the action attribute on your <apex:page> tag, possibly in conjunction with a controller extension, but I wasn't able to whip up a POC for that.
