display full name

Hey guys,

I changed my blog post layout to show not only the lastModifiedDate but the creationDate aswell.

There are two problems: How can I display the full name of creator and modifier and not the username?

How can I cange the code to display to something like User created the entry on $CreationDate and modified it on $lastModDate ?

Cheers! :)

//This is a part of my blog post layout code:

##parse ("/decorators/includes/page-metadata.vm")

#set ($Creator = $blog.getCreatorName())

#set ($CreationDate = $dateFormatter.formatDateTime( $blog.getCreationDate()))

#set ($lastModder = $blog.getLastModifierName())

#set ($lastModDate = $dateFormatter.formatDateTime( $blog.getLastModificationDate()))

<div class="page-metadata">


<li class="page-metadata-modification-info"><b>$Creator</b> created the entry on <i>$CreationDate</i> </br> <b>$lastModder</b> edited it last on <i>$lastModDate</i></li>

Got it myself :)

Outquoted the metadata-file and replaced it with this

<div class="page-metadata not-personal">$action.getText("macros.blogpost.by.posted.on", ["#userLink($blog.creator)", $action.dateFormatter.formatDateTime($blog.creationDate)]) - last edited by #userLink($blog.lastModifier) on $action.dateFormatter.formatDateTime($blog.lastModificationDate)</div>
