Users save articles to their own customized list?

Post by apropos » Sun Aug 12, 2007 7:22 am

Hello, does anyone know of an extension that allows users of the website to save certain articles they like to their own customized list?
Let's say we have 5 different articles, and a front-end low-level user wants to save articles 2, 3, and 5 to their "account" so they will be able to access them later in their account - and ideally re-organize them (5,2,3 for example) and print or PDF them?
I see there is an eBook extension for Joomla but this looks like a back-end component, not allowing users to do this themselves from the front-end.

Am I totally nuts or is there something like this out there?
Thanks!

you will find the module in the "content" section of the extension directory.......it is a little search but with help of search as "favorite articles" you come very close i think ;)

Thanks, but that doesn't look quite like what I'm looking for...
I think maybe leolam was hinting at the MyLinks extension, which looks almost perfect except that it is pretty outdated - it's not SEF-friendly and is not 1.5 compatible, and it doesn't look like it is going to be updated any time soon. It took me a long time just to find a working download link for it, and then when I installed it gave me all kinds of problems.
But basically this is just what I'm looking for - a "user favorites" component that allows registered users of your site to be able to add their favorite articles, etc. to a "basket" to view later or to print/PDF.
Any other thought anyone?
