List articles by author

I am looking for the simplest way to create a menu item that lists all articles by a specific author.

Any help is appreciated.

There is another solution that you can use which doesn't require any installs or modifications.

First create a new module of type: "Articles - Category". This type of module allows you to filter results by author:

Choose author(s):

Then, create an article and load the module created above, using:

{loadposition position[, style]}

{loadmodule module[, title[, style]]}

Finally create a new menu item pointing to the specific article.

This is not provided by default from Joomla. You could either use a module, create your own model-view with a custom menu item, or use 3rd party content component or CCKs like k2.

    I could suggest Raxo All-mode pro, which has Author Filters and a lot of display options.

    2. Create your own View/Model for com_content:

    if you want to display articles using the com_content component, then you will have to create your own Model/View and create a menu item.

    I think you could easily base your menu item on the Featured MV.

    So a basic implementation would be like:

    Duplicate in components/com_content/

    a. the models/featured.php file

    b. the views/featured/ folder

    Rename them to something like author.php and

  • Articles Anywhere Pro can help with this by using {if} tags to filter out articles you don't want to show.

    See filter by article author ID for more details.
