Show First Name and Last Name instead of login in a post (5 posts)

    Hi,

    How can I set WordPress to show the First Name and Last Name in a post, instead of the login? Whenever I post something, it shows my login as the poster. But I would like to have it the real name in this case.

    Yes - I've searched about it and only found something about real names in comments.

    Thanks in advance

    I have another question. In the RSS Feed, using any RSS aplication, the post name still shows the userid instead of the First name and Last Name. Is there any way to change it so that RSS feed shows author name?

    I was afraid of broking any structure.

    Thanks!

    Not positive, but after you identify the feed template (e.g. wp-includes/feed-rss2.php) being used, replacing the_author with the_author_firstname etc might work. Make sure you keep track of what you changed as it may be overwritten by subsequent updates.
