No problem

Installed on 1.5. This plugin is easy to use and works perfectly once you have understood that a Contact must be created for each user which is author of an article.

Really what I was looking for.

I like the concept of linking article authors to their bios in Contacts. However,

my installation gave "Written by Elizabeth Hazel" on an article.

Didn't show up in the first 10 minutes maybe due to a caching issue? But worked great after that. So don't give up if it doesn't seem to work as soon as you install it!

Very good

Excelent! Very easy instalation, configuration and use. Works very well.

This is exactly what I was looking for!!!

I'm working on the scientific site with a piles of articles and ambitious authors in addition ;) And ability to automatically link author's name to the "Our puper-super scientists" category in a "About Center" section is a pure delight. Thanks! :))

The only thing you should admire: some articles are made in co-authorship. So there can be more than one name in the Author field (separated with comma, for instance). Just think about such an improvement. Good luck!

Owner's reply: Co-authorship is supported already. Use comma for authors separation.

BK-Thumb is a multi-purpose image plugin for Joomla that can automatically create thumbnails and popups of the original images, as well as resize the full-size images or add a watermark to them. It can even scramble the images names so that people cannot guess their original non-watermark locations. For articles shown in blog mode, it can create a link from the first image to the full article for better user navigation. It can also create a simple photo gallery from any folder by just including one of the images from the folder and give it the description (alt text) "mt_gallery" (or using the new tagging feature). See the examples and how-to's below for inspiration and instructions! Please note that when you use BK-Thumb for the first time on a given page, the server has to process all the images which might take quite some time. The same applies when you clear BK-Thumb's cache. For upgrade install a new version without uninstalling the previous one. Release 2.5.0: iLoad gallery prettyPhoto slideshow Image grouping for slideshow Resizing images to user defined size More watermarking control Gallery image caption control Leading images size Release 2.4.3: Shadowbox support was added. thickbox no more supported. prettyPhoto support was added. Configuration for blogs and articles was separated. Transparent color support was added. Support image type of generated images was added. IPTC Caption support was added. Slimbox, prettyPhoto and ShadowBox full control was added. Watermark article category parameter was added. Bug fixing.
