Authors, Authoring & Content, Content infos

Manages 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:

  1. A list of your authors

  2. An article list or blog layout from a specific author with or without a "Select Author" drop down

  3. 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. You can download this plugin from our Homepage:

Version updates:

• 1.3.8: Optional category filter on author views

This component provides me with multiple means of featuring content and works beautifully.
Ease of use
Very easy to install and to use. I really like it a lot. ..................................
I used this to: Featuring a series of content in various categories. It works beautifully.
Unfortunately, when updating beyond Joomla! version 3.6.5, the component no longer functions and the menu items do not work.
Ease of use
When it works, it works well. My scores are based on when the component is working, not now.
I am hoping to reach the developer to fix this problem.
I wish we could fix this problem.
I used this to: This is a great component. It's so important to two of my websites, that I have not been able to update Joomla because it won't work with later versions.
Owner's reply: I have extensively tested the component on Joomla 3.8.0 without any problem.

Thank you for your comments. I hope you find out what the issue is.
Quite good, but it has few bugs.
Ease of use
Very easy to use.
Good enough.
I used this to: Joomla author blogging.

Ease of use
very easy, install and use, perfect for what my client needed
was not necessary

I used this to: Blog cultural interest
This component is great, it has a lot of features and each one can be configured to suit your needs... But the support is even better: I found some problems with my multilanguage site, I contacted the developer and in a second he rolled out a new version with full multilanguage support.

Just be careful with plg_authorlist_content: it could add link to content that should be text-only. There is an option to fix the author meta tag, but other (third-party) components may need manual modifications.

I was really only looking for an easier way to set up Google+ authorship on a site when I tried this extension. Not only did it fulfil that need, but the other features blew me away - things I didn't even know I wanted for my sites!

Very professional, too many features, easy to install, working like a charm!

I wish I could add another 5stars rating for the excellent support!
Our Joomla User Group was discussing Monday some of the essential functionality to have on a site with multiple contributors. This is one of the key features we were seeking that is missing out of Joomla Core.

Is it easy to set up? Definitely Yes.

Can I link from Author in an article to the Author profile with a list of that Author's articles? Yes

Can I display an Author box below the article? Yes.

Can I display a list or blog view of Articles by a particular Author? Yes.

Does it support Google Authorship? Yes.

Is there a module that will display a list of Authors? Yes.

It even has a plugin to support automatically adding a user to Author List on registration if that user is set to a certain permission level.

The only reason I didn't give this 5 stars is because there are a couple of other features I'd really like to see. But that won't stop me from using the extension or recommending it to others.

Thank you!

Fast to set up, easy to use, and greatly improved my "authorship". Professional result. Thanks very much.
Looked for an extension to add author box, which is supported by both J2.5 and J3.

Author list does the job, and has excellent support - wanted an extra feature, and author added it to the extension right away!
