Since Version 1.2, Our Author List component offers the capability for your authors to edit their information from the frontend. Once logged in, if an author goes to his page, he will now see the "Edit" icon which will take him to a form view where he can easily update his details.
Author List is a component for Joomla 2.5 to manage your content authors so you visitor can go to their pages either in a blog or a sortable table (list) 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 (plg_authorlist) it will link your authors' names to their com_authorlist pages whenever they show in your blog or article view.
