Today we are releasing plg_user_profile_authorlist, another extension for our Author List Component.
It is a User Plugin that actually extends Joomla's core Profile Pages adding the key fields from Author List.
Just download it, install and enable it, and then your User Profile form will show a new tab with the Author Options, just as in the image.
It will make it a lot easier for your authors to update their bios and images from the Front-End. If you don't have it already, just create a Menu Item selecting the type User -> Edit User Profile. Finally, you might want to set it to "Registered" or "Special" Access.
In the latest version of our ajax voting plugin for your Joomla articles , v 2.5.4, we are allowing you to add Google's Rich Snippets to your star ratings.
If you turn this feature ON, you will eventually have Google to display ratings in search results pages.
You need to have your article or product page properly tagged according to Google Structured Data. Basically, your Article or Product needs to have some Schema.org markup supporting the aggregateRating property.
For example, your page should have the following structure:
The essential part of Author List is the Component, which is installed from the com_authorlist package. Once installed, it will allow you to create each author instance you need, based on your existing users. At this point you will be ready to create a new menu item to point your visitor to a list of your authors or a particular author's page.
