Trombinoscope Extended ComponentModulePlugin

Editor's Note
  • This extension requires registration to download.
Trombisnoscope Extended is a component that shows a list of contacts in a picture-only or business card (vcard) style fashion (like a Year Book, a company's trombinoscope...). It is NOT a contact form replacement and uses the standard Joomla! contacts.

The package includes a module, a menu item type for a full page view and a preset of skins and icons. All component and module instances are totally independent and are fully skinnable. Add your own skins and/or download extra sets as they become available.

It contains the following features:

- select contacts through categories or meta keywords,
- set a possible maximum number of contacts to show,
- show only the published contacts,
- show/hide/only featured contacts,
- set the alignment in which the picture is shown,
- the images can be cropped,
- set the order of the contacts (random order possible),
- set the view format of the name,
- show up to 7 fields from the contacts,
- show extra field (formatted address),
- link the contact to a standard page or popup,
- several options to format the information,
- fully css customizable,
- theme (skin) selection. Themes can be added to the themes folder,
- icon packs. New packs can be added in the icons folder. Icons and themes are independant for optimal customization,
- ability to set the card and picture widths and heights,
- option to show labels or icons to every field and label to the name,
- there are default labels, but personalized ones can be added (as contact fields are sometimes used for other meaningful information),
- includes links a to e,
- links a through e labels are set in the following order of priority (higher to low): Trombinoscope parameter / contact's label / contact's global parameter label / social label (if it is a social link recognized) / 'link' label,
- floating element that can contain up to 5 links (email, webpage and links a through e),
- floating element that shows when the contact is featured,
- pagination to the page view and the possibility to set the number of contacts per page to a fixed number,
- experimental alphabetical index and category directory,
- selection of the default picture: if a contact picture is not set, it will first use the Trombinoscope default picture. When missing, will use the default image set in the contact's global parameters. On last resort, it will use the default fallback styling for contacts with no picture,
- handles social links (will show proper icons if present in the icon pack selected) whenever social links are set in the links a to e,
- show contact's category, order by category and show category descriptions,
- optin to download the vcard,
- obfuscates emails addresses to protect against spambots,
- use the module to show related contacts (through meta keywords),
- 3 PLUGINS to deal with back links, breadcrumbs and contact edition in the frontend.
- contacts import from CSV
- full compatibility with Joomla! 3 (tag support)

It does exactly what it says.
It presents very neatly a list of contacts.
From each contact, you also can get access to the Joomla contact form; which is so great.

Keep up the good work!
Owner's reply

This is a very nice component. NOTE: it is NOT a replacement for Joomla's contact component. It's just a nice way of displaying all your contacts.

It was very easy to install and configure and worth the small price.
Owner's reply

Thank you very much for the review and for your reminder. This is very well appreciated.
