Listing authors by first name
« on: 12 November 2014, 23:09:21 »
Hi!

Is it possible to list authors by first name instead of listing them by their last name?  In Icelandic it does not make sense to list people by their last name, even the phone book lists people by their first name :)

Sorry, just realised this is in the wrong thread!  I'll post in the correct thread now.

Hi xega,
I did not know!!! Do you refer to the author list on the front end? I will insert this feature in the next version.
I moved the topic.

Hello Federica :) 
Iceland is a small country with only 320.000 people, and we use patronymic last names (your last name is your fathers first name plus the ending -dóttir if you are female and -son if you are male).  So if your fathers first name is Gunnar, your last name would be Gunnarsdóttir (which basically means 'the daughter of Gunnar') if you are female, and Gunnarsson if you are male (which means 'son of Gunnar').  Just a little fun information :)

If it would be possible to view the authors in the front end, by first name first, that would be great :)
Thank you :D

xega,
thank you for the explanation. I love to hear the customs of people away. I added a new option so you can to select the order you like. I will publish the new version as soon as possible.
Bye bye
