I just implemented a page with an upcoming list (birthday). It works fine, except for the name format. the shortcode show_lastname=’TRUE’ includes bothe the middle name and last name. As we are using the middle name for typical Dutch name constructions, the names in the list get the wrong format. Is it possible to use the name format tokens like in the upcoming birthdays widget?
Sorry, no, but that is a good idea. I just made the change to add support for a new
name_format shortcode option which can be used with the name tokens. This will be included in the next update.
What you can do now… you can output the widget with a shortcode. Move the widget to the Connections: Widget Shortcodes sidebar and click save. You will be given a shortcode that can be used on a page to display the widget.
Hope that helps! Let me know.
Thanks Steven! The widget works on the page. As soon as the update is available I will try again the standard upcoming list.
