Trying to put a signature on a Visualforce Email template

This tag works: {!relatedTo.Owner.Name}
This tag does NOT work: {!relatedTo.Owner.Title}

I've also tried using {!User.Title} and {$User.Title}

Any suggestions on how to get to the rest of the Owner fields?
Thanks!

Well, you could also just use:

 

{!$User.Title}

 

Note the addition of the '$' gives you access to what you may be used to using in mail templates if you're just getting started with VisualForce.

 

Of course, this is the sending user, not the record owner - but in a mailing situation that's what I would want.

UserInfo object does not have getTitle Method. Owner refers to a User object however i do not think it would load all the properties of the user profile mostly just Id, name, Alias, etc.

Therefore, if you need the title information you should write couple of lines of code in your Visualforce Controller to query that information from the database.
