Contact Details, Address Book

Trombisnoscope is a module that shows a list of contacts in a one-column fashion. It is NOT a contact form replacement.

  • Get this


  • 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.

Owner's reply: Thank you so much for this review. I am trying my best to give what I would expect from other developers. I appreciate your comments very much.

Works like a charm

A simple module doing a great job. Makes your default contacts look much better in a list.

Owner's reply: Thank you very much for the review!

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 :-)

Owner's reply: Thank you so much for the review :-)

Does What I Needed

Posted on 08 July 2012

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

Owner's reply: Thank you, I appreciate your comment.

thank you!

simple and useful.

Owner's reply: Thank you :-)

Simply great

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.

Owner's reply: 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!!!

Owner's reply: Thank you so much for the review. The problem with contact links encountered by a few has been identified and the resolution is posted on the website. Thank you for asking for support before giving a bad rating to the extension, it is greatly appreciated.

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.

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

This plugin is meant to help clean and resolve front and back end issues when using instances of jQuery alongside the Mootools libraries. WHAT IT DOES OUT-OF-THE BOX calls jQuery and jQuery UI libraries from the Google CDN (with or without protocol) - but you can do it locally too, places jQuery libraries after MooTools calls for perfect compatibility, adds the noConflict() code alongside the jQuery library call, strips out extra jQuery and jQuery UI libraries, including the noConflict() calls added by other modules or plugins, lets you choose jQuery UI basic styling or custom theme. WHAT YOU CAN TWEAK disable MooTools libraries tentatively in the frontend, enable or disable the plugin in specific portions of the site, from template to single page, use reporting to get feedback on what the plugin engine has done, add or remove scripts and stylesheets, strip blank lines left by the modifications made to the page, prevent some libraries to be stripped out, modify the way the engine works by default (do not add or remove noConflict() code...), ... Try the new jQuery Easy Profiles for Joomla! 3+ that allows multiple configurations to work seamlessly for different parts of a site. Speed up your pages and limit your server load.

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...). Contacts are still managed by the standard Joomla! contacts extension. It contains the following features: select contacts by categories, tags (Joomla 3.1+), keywords to create grid-like pages of contacts, select themes and modify the styles to your liking, format the name, choose a sort order, show contact information (every single field available, including links a..e) in 2 possible ways (plain text or just icon link), show those fields with or without labels or icons, restrict access (public, registered users...), format addresses, link them with automatic mapping, choose to link the contacts to open in a specific contact page (from the component or Joomla), add pagination, alphabetic, category and tags index for menu items, add print and search capabilities, use a default picture if the contact has none, or show no photo at all, crop, resize and filter the pictures (grayscale...), use links a..e to link to Facebook, Twitter..., the icons are automatically selected or (v2+ only) use the plugin that adds social fields to the contact, obfuscate the email addresses to hide them from spambots, edit the contacts on the public side of a site through the user profile, use the module to show a specific contact, the logged-in user or related contacts to the one showing in contact view, import contacts through CSV, make the grid responsive, paysage-style cards turn into portrait-mode when too small, use the internationalization capabilities, link emails directly to a contact's form, (v2+ only) create contact views in 2 possible layouts (multi-columns or tabs), (v2+ only) use additional fields that are available throughout the extension (gender, birthdate, map, company, department, Facebook, LinkedIn... and many more), (v2+ only) download vcards that target personal or business profiles, more complete than the original vcard downloads proposed by Joomla and language-friendly, (v2+ only) give a specific look to the social icons, (v2+ only) use CSS3 hover effects on pictures and linked fields, (v2+ only) play with more styling options, (v2+ only) link addresses with a Google map URL, (v2+ only) use the mobile-ready features, (v2+ only) use the module carousel capabilities (module Trombinoscope is free to try), and so much more...

Take jQuery fixing to the next level and use the full power of the Joomla! framework to create separate jQuery Easy configuration profiles. Fine-tune your jQuery requirements (including jQuery UI and Mobile) and only fix issues on pages that cause problem. And now, you can even limit the plugin's processing to the head area of your site pages! That will consume less server resources and definitely improve performance. Manage different templates (perfect to separate desktop and mobile websites), select menu items, user access or language to completely make jQuery Easy work for your website. The jQuery Easy Profiles package contains a module and a plugin. Enable the plugin to run jQuery Easy on your website. No changes are mades until profiles (or module instances) are created. Set a custom template position that will be used by the modules and use the report feature to see the plugin in action. Restrict plugin access to Super Users and test your settings on your production site, without any risk. The visitors of your site won't suspect a thing. Create any number of profiles by using the module's framework and decide where the plugin will be active. Do finer tuning by using optional 'enable' and 'disable' parameters. Set the basic and expert parameters like it is already done in jQuery Easy.

Truly Responsive Slider

Truly Responsive Slider may be yet another slider for Joomla! but it specifically targets websites that are responsive in design. Not only it resizes itself, taking the full potential of the well-known jQuery-built Flexslider (and more!), but it will handle different image sizes depending on the device viewports for faster page loading (using the ResponsiveImg jQuery plugin). Choose from different slider styles and create slides from different sources (just a regular directory of images, Joomla! standard articles or K2 items). Show sophisticated captions that can be viewed no matter the device. Now with Joomla! 3.1+ tag support. Try before you buy version available!
