Trombinoscope Module

Editor's Note
  • This extension requires registration to download.
Trombisnoscope is a module that shows a list of contacts in a one-column fashion. It is NOT a contact form replacement.


- show contacts from categories, show a specific contact, related contacts or the contact info of the logged user,
- select sub-categories automatically,
- set the maximum number of contacts to show (if nothing specified, it will show all contacts),
- show only the published contacts,
- set the alignment in which the picture is shown (possible to alternate left and right),
- the images do not 'bleed' out of the column (automatic size restriction),
- set the order of the contacts (ascending or descending order with names formatted as one or 2 words, which is great for contacts with firstname/lastname),
- set the view format of the name,
- show a default picture if contact pictures are missing. If not set, will use the default fallback styling for contacts with no picture (default picture size is 100px X 120px),
- show up to 5 fields from the contacts,
- show extra fields like a formatted address,
- set the contact link label to access the contact page. If no label is specified, will use the name as the link,
- open the contact in a standard page or a popup (no form allowed in popup),
- several options to format the information (empty fields, spaces when information is missing),
- fully css customizable.

Buy the enhanced version 'Trombinoscope Extended' for much more functionality!

Both the module and extension are perfect for making contact information look professional and enhance the usability of contact information. Simple to install and use yet lots of additional options if you want to use them.
The manual is the best example of instructions I have seen to date with fully documented examples. Regular updates for new Joomla version compatibility and prompt courteous and articulate support if you need advice to get even more customisation. Can't praise this one highly enough.

Great module !!!
I am using also the Trombinoscope Extended component, both are great and saved me a lot of work. Excellent support.
(I wish we could also display only one contact by entering the contact ID in the module parameters screen.)
Owner's reply

Thanks for the review, it is greatly appreciated.
The contact id addition, among other improvements is planned for all versions of Trombinoscope. In the meantime, it is possible to create a category for the contact and show that category (all depending on your configuration).

I just downloaded and setup this extension for a business listing page on my site. It was done in 5 minutes!
Using the Joomla contacts is clever as it means I can maintain the business information without having to change an article each time (I originally was using a table in an article; not user-friendly).
It looks super! Highly recommended - and I am not a very technical person so if I can use it anyone can :-)

You would think this would be built into core Joomla, but the native display options are horrible. This module came to the rescue and provided exactly what I needed for my client.

Thanks again

A very simple and easy to use module. Great to show all your contacts or selected ones in one column.

Only thing you have to remember is to create a page/menu (may be hidden or a menu type not published) with the intended contacts. Rest it will look after. The support, I must say, is fantastic...really quick and very helpful. I got some tips that I would have not tried myself.

Simply great module and great developer.

Thanks a lot for this review.
I expect a further update to the module to address the menu item issue and avoiding the workaround all together.

I was looking for this extension for a long time. It´s doing what I want. I had a little problem, but after I ask the developper, he just answered in a day and solved the problem (links didnt work). SO, many many thanks, I really can recommend this extension. Easy to use, friendly to work with.

Try out yourself!!!

Not that many extensions out there that display contact data along with the users photo. Very stylized too.
My only gripe is lack of support (so far). SEF breaks the contact links on my site.
Owner's reply

Thanks for the review, it is greatly appreciated.
Do not hesitate to contact me at or through the website for support. We can try and analyse why the contact links are broken.

This little gem is exactly what I was looking for!

It gives a very nice layout for a staff listing.
The CSS was very easy to modify to meet my needs.

Although it is a module, I as able to integrate it into an article using {loadposition} and I now have exactly what I want for this site.

Thanks to the developer.

Thank you for your review and for pointing out the fact that in can be used in other ways than just a regular module.

I did try it out and it's a very good extension.
Easy to configurate also css is easy to change to your needs.
I like this extension very much and if you need a different layout of the contact page I would recommend this for sure.
