#15888 closed defect (bug) (fixed)

show_fullname argument in wp_list_authors broken

The problem seems to come from the change in #10329 to make wp_list_authors() use the get_users() function. The show_fullname argument relies on the first_name and last_name user meta keys, which aren't a part of the user objects returned from the user query.

In the wp_list_authors() function in author-template.php, we're checking for $author->first_name and $author->last_name, which will never be true, so it always shows $author->display_name:

if ( $show_fullname && $author->first_name && $author->last_name )
	$name = "$author->first_name $author->last_name";
	$name = $author->display_name;

WP_DEBUG message:

Notice: Undefined property: stdClass::$first_name in C:\xampplite\htdocs\wp-includes\author-template.php on line 305

I believe this broke in [17013] and now wp_list_authors does not use 'all_with_meta' because it causes fatal errors if a lot of users will be returned by the query.

15888.diff retrieves only the ids and then calls get_userdata(), just like in 3.0.
