SimpleLists Features

Create content-listings quickly

Create content-listings quickly

SimpleLists offers a very flexible way to configure content-listings fast and efficient. It does so with flexibility in mind: As always, this requires you to first setup things correctly, but after this, management becomes a breeze. No need for a complex CCK. No need to make extra clicks.

Title, text, image, link

Title, text, image, link

Each SimpleLists item is similar to a Joomla! article: It gets a title and a text. But additionally you can configure an image and a link. These content-elements can then easily be switched on or off using the parameters. The link can point to numerous destinations (Joomla! articles, other SimpleLists links, images, files) - thanks to the flexible SimpleLists Link Plugin architecture, you can even point to other Joomla! components.

Ease of use

Ease of use

Images can be selected easily by using a popup gallery box. Each content-item can point to a certain destination link - this can be an article, Menu-Item, image, files - all can be selected easily. SimpleLists even adds some advanced tricks for user-friendliness: It remembers which sliding tab was open when you closed the window, and automatically enters default values when you add new items.

Numerous layouts

Numerous layouts

The component ships with various layouts, that allow you to quickly modify the look and feel of the content-listing: Layouts like Basic, Default and Table allow for simple article-like listings. The Picture layout is excellent for simple photo-galleries or image-listings - you can easily add Lightbox-effects to it as well The Hover and Toggle layouts add even more JavaScript-effects.
