How to display author first and last name in Twenry Eleven (2 posts)

    I'm trying to make it on posts where the author's first and last name is displayed rather than the username, which is currently the case. After doing some searching, I found content-single.php in my theme, and the following code:

    $utility_text = __( 'This entry was posted in %1$s by <a href="%6$s">%5$s</a>. Bookmark the <a href="%3$s" title="Permalink to %4$s" rel="bookmark">permalink</a>.', 'twentyeleven' );

    Seems that '%5$s' is to represent the username. Is that so? Not the traditional PHP code I expect to see. So is this correct? And if so, how do I switch it?

    Hi there, not sure if you figured out a response to your problem yet but I came across your post earlier when I was having a similar issue. I've just found a resolution so thought I'd track back and help you out!

    In your dashboard go to Users on the side menu. When you edit a particular user there is a field named 'Display name publicly as' - this controls what combination of the user's name is displayed on their posts meta data. You should be able to change this to suit your needs.
