Go to your WordPress site > wp-content > themes > your-theme > functions.php.

Copy and paste the following code:
Code: Select all
//insert a full-name into a page or post

function displayFullName () {

$user_info = get_userdata(1);

     return $user_info->last_name .  ", " . $user_info->first_name . "\n";


add_shortcode('avnw-full-name', 'displayFullName');

Add shortcode to page or post:
