Authored Content List component

The Authored Content List component is used in conjunction with Article pages that have authors associated with them under the Article Info tab in their page properties. This component will list all associated articles with a particular author.

This component has similar configuration options to the standard List component, without the options for how to build the list, e.g., fixed, tags, search, etc. The Authored Content List component was specifically developed for the VTx site, but can be used to find content by author in any site in the CMS.

The List Properties configuration dialog contains the following options:

  • Component Title - text input field that does not display for this component but useful for giving the component a title for keeping track of what it is used for on the page
  • CSS Class - text input field for custom CSS and/or utility classes
  • Order by - select pulldown used to choose what page information to use to order the pages being displayed in the list, Filename, Title, Created Date, On Time, Last Modified, and page Template are the available options
  • Sort order - select pulldown used to set ascending or descneding methods to the Order by configuration
  • Limit - number field used to set the maximum number of returned pages for an author
  • Include Hidden Pages - checkbox to include pages in the list that have the Hide in navigation option turned on in their page properties
  • Offset - number field that sets the starting point of returned page results to be listed
  • Paginate after - number field used to set the number of viewable results before paginating
