Introduction

Authors, Authoring & Content, Content infos

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.

  • Report

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: http://munditico.com/joomla-extensions/

very easy, install and use, perfect for what my client needed

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.


Wonderful

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!


Perfect!

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!


perfect for what I needed

I downloaded and installed it right away. However I had a problem (MY problem) with one setting and posted a question in his support forum. Got an answer the next day, with the right solution. Great addon and great support.


Nice!

Extra Vote not only provides the ajax five-star rating feature to your Joomla content, but it allows you to insert those beautiful voting stars anywhere else inside of your article independently, so your users can rate specific parts of it, just by adding {extravote 1}, {extravote 2}, {extravote 3}, etc, in order to id every piece of content you want people to rate. Version updates: For Joomla 3.+ only: • 2.5.8: {mainvote #} code in order to show the ratings of other articles by id. • 2.5.7: Using com_ajax For Joomla 2.5 and 3.+ only: • 2.5.6: Three different star sizes. • 2.5.4: Adding the aggregateRating property according to Google Structured Data. • 2.5.3: Show/Hide current rating until they have voted. • 2.5.2: Possibility to hide the stars in blog views. • 2.5.1: Enabling half stars (or not). • 2.5.0: New option to show the average rating. • 1.3: Possibility to allow only registered users to vote. • 1.2: New {mainvote} code to also show the main content rating inside of your article.
