This is component to manage your content authors so your visitor can go to their pages either in a blog or a sortable article list table layout.
Once you have properly created your desired author instances (each attached to a specific user) in the backend, you can create different types of Author List menu items:
A list of your authors
An article list or blog layout from a specific author with or withour a "Select Author" drop down
A general article list or blog from all your authors with the same optional author filter possibility
Additionally, if you install and enable our Author List Plugin (plgauthorlistcontent) it will link your authors' names to their com_authorlist pages whenever they show in your blog or article view.
