I'm creating page layouts in SharePoint 2013. I have added author field in page layout.But I have to display First And Last Name of Author.

<SharePoint:FormField ID="FormField1" ControlMode="Display" FieldName="Author" DisableInputFieldLabel="true" runat="server"/>

Also I have SharePoint Date-time control

<SharePointWebControls:DateTimeField FieldName="14aa28de-f5fa-48cc-8f8a-ac7d4a215136" runat="server"></SharePointWebControls:DateTimeField>

I'm trying to display custom date on page layout like May 11th 2017

Please suggest something


instead of adding SharePointWebControls:DateTimeField you can just render the code in-line

<%=SPContext.Current.ListItem["Created"] != null? (new DateTime(SPContext.Current.ListItem["Created"].ToString()).ToString("USE FORMAT DATE STRING HERE"): string.Empty %>


Create a calculated column to store the date and render that field The formula for calculated column will be =TEXT(DATEFIELD,"DATEFORMAT")
