Content Sharing

My ShortList is a very smart and quick extension to allow your visitors, a favourite links list, with quick access to them.
My ShortList is ideal for websites featuring a number of products, article series, advertisements, events or newsletters, from which a visitor would like to add to their favourites!

  • Get this

Give your visitors the choice not to "add to cart", but to a wishlist, from which of course they have one click access to all the pages you want them to visit again and again.

My ShortList is great for its simplicity. It uses cookies to store the favourite articles, in the user's browser, and the database for logged-in users, and it works out of the box!

Support and features

Posted on 27 June 2015

Wanted a wish list type of feature that is tied to articles. This is the only thing that does this for me.

Ease of use

Very Easy


The support that I received for the developer to get this going has been awesome.


It gives a lot of flexibility in terms of versions of Joomla, even works with K2.

Value for money

Great features but at a very low cost.

I used this to: Booking marking (basically) articles by guests and members of my website.

This extension works perfectly. It's really easy to make a clickable list of favorite articles. I'm using K2 and it works beautifully. But the coolest thing is that the user can send themselves an email with their list of favorite items. These items are all clickable links in email and take you right to the correct page online. (In my situation, I had to set Use Absolute Link and Automatically Append Menu Itemid settings to YES in URL Parameters). I got fast help from the developer, so that's how I know this! I am running an online art competition, and now, thanks to the email sending feature, the monthly judges will be able to select their favorite paintings and send the results to themselves and to me. Since we may end up with thousands of paintings, this is a must-have extension for us!

so many options... such a cheap price!

Nice module ! excellent works out of the box

Christopher provides a good extension at a good price. There was a bug resulting from the way my template provider, YouJoomla, handles certain extensions.

Thanks for the help fixing it and for the extension itself.

This is what i was looking for, i built a gaming site called "Essential Flash Games" which im pleased to say, now lets users connecting with facebook to access a favourite game page, where I've installed the list only,then on all game pages I added the module in "display only add/remove button" mode.

So after some customisation with css, the buttons are now integrated to the design of the website and looking good.

Eagerly anticipating additional feature from the author providing display of the default article image/thumbnail in the favorite list.

This is by far the best of this type of module for Joomla I've found, there is no jquery conflicts at all.

I will look forward to updates on this module in the future or maybe a pro version, with even more options and features added.

As it stands, this module will satisfy beginner and advanced web designers with its flexibility and functionality.

Cost me only $9.00 AU for this one, and license is unlimited domains etc.

One last note, registration and payment was a painless experience via paypal/visa debit, taking less than 2 mins to go from sign up to install module.

Nice working extension

Posted on 19 June 2013

Works really great and easy to install. Is there an joomla 3.x version coming up? Would be great to integrate them in my other sites.

Brilliant, love this, now wondering which of my other sites i can use it on!!

cost £5 - bargain !

Fantastic Product and Support

Posted on 08 February 2013

This extension works flawlessly and the customer support is the best I've experienced in 5+ years!

I grabbed this module to use with sobipro and it works flawlessly. Simple to set up, and if you have any issues at all the response time is the best I've had with Joomla products in 4 years.

I was looking for an extension to let my users create shortlists of closer selected articles. But for my goals is such extension useful only if it shows beside of titles the article images too. MyShortList doesn't offer such possibility. I asked developer, whether he implements this feature and he did it. Beside of this he got some bugs away, related to my installation. Generally speaking: 5 stars for functioning, 5 stars for support, 5 stars for responsibility.

PopFeed is a FREE and REALLY SIMPLE plugin that does quite a job! It provides a feedback / report link in articles, that pops out a form. Do you want a Comment Form with just 12kb code? Simliar functionality has been found in the JED, but never done in such a simplistic 12kb way of thinking! To add it in an article (if not in auto popfeed mode) you add: {popfeed}Your Text{/popfeed} To optionally change the mail recipient in an article, you write: {popfeedmailrecipient}{/popfeedmailrecipient} Many thanks to my friend Ivan for suggesting and communicating with me throughout the whole process of creating this very useful plugin!
