This is component to manage your content authors so your 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:
1. A list of your authors
2. An article list or blog layout from a specific author with or withour 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 (plg_authorlist) it will link your authors’ names to their com_authorlist pages whenever they show in your blog or article view.
