With the shortcode [upcoming_list list_type='anniversary'], the list is displayed with name without the firstname or the first letter of the firstname. Is there any way to integrate also the [upcoming_list show_lastname='true'] code? The same for birthday list also. Any assistance is highly appreciated.11/17/2014 at 2:01 pm #310243
The first name should always be displayed … if it isn’t what is being displayed? can you share a link to the page with the issue so I can see?11/17/2014 at 2:14 pm #310245
Thanks for the reply.
I have created a page for your referece – you can note that only names are displayed, not the first names.

I’m really sorry, but I do not understand … I looked at the page. If a name is being shown, that is the first name. Wait … are you asking about the name prefix???11/17/2014 at 3:12 pm #310257
In our list, only the name is shown and no surname or the first letter of the surname. There are different persons with the same name in our list. So we do cannot identify the person if at least the first letter of the surname is included.11/17/2014 at 11:35 pm #310308psaverioGuest
I am sorry for not being clear with my question. In the upcoming list anniversary, a list of anniversary is shown but only with the first name. Is it possible to include at least a letter of the last name also in order to identify the person? If that is not possible, can we list the last name instead of the first name? In other words can we integrate both these short codes – [upcoming_list list_type='anniversary'], [upcoming_list show_lastname='true']. Thank you.

Oh, I see, yes you can. Just put both options into the same shortcode like so:
[upcoming_list list_type='anniversary' show_lastname='true']
That’ll do it.
When working with shortcodes, generally you can always use multiple options within the same shortcode.
Hope that helps!
If you have a moment, I would truly appreciate a review as they really do make a difference. Many thanks in advance!
