1. Your approach to edit own profile is an awesome hack. Thanks!

    Maybe for version difference reasons your code didnt work. Am on CakePHP 3.0. My solution:

    > Controller:

        public function editme() {
            $uid = $this->request->session()->read('Auth.User.id');
            $user = $this->Users->get($uid, []);
            if ($this->request->is(['patch', 'post', 'put'])) {
                $user = $this->Users->patchEntity($user, $this->request->data);
                if ($this->Users->save($user)) {
                    $this->Flash->success(__('Your account changes have been saved.'));
                } else {
                    $this->Flash->error(__('Something went wrong and your changes were not saved. Try again.'));
            $this->set('_serialize', ['user']);

    View template:

    Form->create($user); ?>
                echo $this->Form->input('last_name');
                echo $this->Form->input('email');
                echo $this->Form->input('password');
                echo $this->Form->hidden('active', [
                  'default' => '1'
