Author bio component/mambot

Post by phil_roy » Fri Sep 09, 2005 6:25 am

Hi all,

I'd like an option to have an author's bio included in an article. Because I wouldn't want it to appear in every single thing published on the site (like me just posting a news item) I'd like to have a way of controlling it. At the moment, I'm creating them manually like this one (see about the author)...
http://www.nzmac.com/index.php?option=c ... &Itemid=94

So here's the idea...
A component that allows you to create a number of simple author bios. These bio's MUST be named (or their ID should be) the same name that appears in an articles "by" field. I'd also like to be able to set the design of the bio box (so I can decide whther I want a certain CSS style for the whole area) and inlcude an author's image. I'd also want to be able to set the alignment of the bio's box (where it will appear on a page) at this point.

Then, whenever I'm creating a new article, if I want, I just slip in "{mosbio}" (I guess "joombio"?) into the text and Joomla picks up the name of the author from the author field, looks for an author bio and displays it.

Hey! I like that.  Not sure it should be part of the core, but someone could pick that idea up and run.

Unless the Community Builder already allows for that to happen?  Or perhaps CB is too strong a solution for this kind of implementation?  Dunno.

The CB looked like a slightly different concept to me....more an "extended info" type of thing for all users. My idea targets more a group of people you might have as writers for a site and the cool thing is that there would be one bio per author...so (unlike at the moment) I wouldn't have to manually go round hunting for articles when someone says "Hey, can you update my bio info"

Seems like it should be a logical extension of the core. After all, aren't all Joomla sites going to have news articles? Every article has an author right? Tight intergration with user accounts would be great.

Here is a thread detailing how to have the authro's name link to his/her Community Builder profile. http://forum.mamboserver.com/showthread.php?t=27218

There is also mhAuthor - "mhAuthor is a combination mambot/component that allows you to create a link at the end of your content items to create a link to read more articles by the same author. Perfect for news/magazine type sites." http://www.joomla-hosting.com/free_mambo_software.html

Also MosAuthorXTD http://www.mamboexpert.com/index.php?op ... &Itemid=58
"this Mambot lets you create an individual string for the display of author, created, modified, usertype, section, category and hits. You can assign a css-class and choose from 4 different positions."

Hmmm.I'd say close but no cigar....if I can be that fussy. Having had a quick play....

Community Builder....yeah, but I don't really want to use community builder with the site and the site users....I'd really want the bio appearing in the page, not taking them off to somewhere else.

mhAuthor looks cool, but all it does is (as it says)...allows you to create a link at the end of your content items to create a link to read more articles by the same author.

Mosauthorxtd just adds the following info into an article if you want it to . It just replaces "By Joe bloggs" with a longer piece of text that can include....author, created, modified, hits, section, category and usertype

-----

My approach was really a way of having prepared text (namely a bio and image) appear easily within an existing article...therefore, not requiring many changes at all to how you traditionally set up your site.

The reason I say that last part is that I'm also posting in a thread about a review component. Someone has pointed out a review component but it requires you also use facile forms, which moves you away from standard articles. Imagine how great it would be if the bio idea could also be extended to review...you just add {joomreview} to an article and all the ratings etc for the product appear, just like the author bio suggestion above.

You could use Community Builder to manage the author profiles and then develop a custom mambot that displays the author thumbnail and any other CB fields you choose.  That way you have one central place to keep track of an author's info and it would automatically appear at the top (or whereever you want it to) of each article.

How difficult is it to accomplish something of this nature? If there is one area that I find to be a drawback to Joomla it is that doing little things can involve so much and potential changes to the core. In the past I could create or easily modify templates that would easily handle plugging things like this in. Creating a mambot seems to involve some serious coding experience as it also requires packaging for installing, etc.

As you can see, I'm new to Joomla for a few days, evaluating whether I want to use something like this or something more ready out of the box.

Hi folks,
I thought about something similar, meaning a more generalized version of this. I don't know if it is possible with mosForms (is it even called that way?) The idea would be a scripting engine, with whom you can create forms to fill in the necessary data and which then is displayed as a page or something on your site. Could all be managed by xmls and for starters you could send a xml for authors, etc. with the standard package. could also replace the contacts stuff...

Given that Joomla is a CMS and database, I think it should act like any other. I have never seen a CMS/BBS that didn't link the author's name to the author's bio and contact info. It strikes me as odd that now that I have figured out how to set up the "contact me" form which can contain multiple users, why isn't this auto linkable to what they publish? It's counterintuitive and I think it should have been part of the core a long time ago. A simple "show/hide" button in the admin panel for general should be sufficient to control this for those who don't want this ubiquitous feature.

Like this: http://www.mambopros.net/Artigos-e-Tuto ... bot-7.html ??

If you guys want. I can post the code here. Its in portuguese but i can add a few comments in my poor english so you can understand :D

This was my 1st mambot and is very specific (that's why i dnd't released on developer.joomla) because it uses specific fields of CB to create this presentation.

cheers,

Please, post here Bigodines as I'm very interested about your work. An idea of mine is to have a mambot that makes linkable the author name in the content article instead to have a bottom link of the author itself. What do you think about that idea?

Moreover I think that this mambot you could "direct" to every page (not only to CB) but even towards the forum profile of the author. Do you like that?

I'll wait for your code  ;) :D :D

A lot of thanks!!! I'll test next week soon...

I wish you a good work for SimpleNews, I've tested the old one but I find troubles... and I hope that you solve certain problems. Moreover my question is why have you decided for a non-component solution?

Because our journalists hate joomla (they are too stupid to use it lol), se we needed a solution outside. But sN 2.0 will have two versions.. as a comopnent (for the front-end) and as the regular sN, outside joomla, just sharing the same database...

Hi there,

I'm still pretty new to all of this and SQL doesn't always make sense to me. I'm having trouble making this work with my site.
When I try it, it shows the first set with just the text, and then nothing more,  and I'm sure my SQL skills are to blame...

What is "perfil", and what keeps me from writing it to directly access #_comprofiler?

You're right, if all those were in parameters, it would make it a lot easier for simpletons like me! But I'll figure it out...

Thanks for sharing!

Thank you phil-roy for your answer. I have used CB AuthorBot but his only functionality is to create a link back to the authors profile. I need to have a "mini profile" inside each article, such as a photo, some words about the author and a link back to his full profile. This can work in conjugation with CB AuthorBot that creates a link from the authors name, back to his profile.

I stumbled on a new version of CBAuthorBot and remembered this conversation. At Joomlapolis, some folks have modified CBAuthorBot to do much of this, including showing the avatar, and with tweaking, adding other information. I'm using it now with the picture and a bio,  and it seems to work fine.
