Grouping authors into different User Groups

Since version 1.3.1 and for Joomla 3.+ only, you can separate your Authors into different groups in order to have a menu item for each specific group. We take advantage of Joomla's User Group Manager feature that allows us to create as many options as we want. This is how you should proceed:

  1. Navigate to Users -> Groups -> Add New Group from your top menu.
  2. Save your new Group(s) Title(s) picking "Author" as the Group Parent.
  3. Go to User Manager and move your desired Users into these groups. You can use the "Batch" option to assing multiple users to a certain Group.
  4. In you Author List menu item, find the "Choose User Group" option and select one Group if you want to include only authors from that particular Group.
  5. If your menu item is the "Author List" or "Author Blog" type, you will find this option in the Integration tab. It will only work if your "Choose Author" option is set to "All" in the Details tab.
