Authors extension displays all of the user who have contributed to the article. They are displayed at the bottom of the article, in the form of their user images/avatars.

Usage / Features

Every user can control what image will be displayed as his image in the list of authors, by changing his profile image. For more about user profile images read here.

If a user has not uploaded an image, its personalized avatar will be shown.

In case the user who has contributed to the page is not registered/logged in, was deleted since they made the contribution, or is for any other reason non-existant, an image with yellow question mark will be displayed.

By hovering over the image of an author, its username will be displayed and clicking the image will lead to that user's page.

Technical information


The number of authors displayed, and if authors will be displayed at all, can be configured on BlueSpice preferences page (Special:BlueSpiceConfigManager). In case there are more contributors to the page than the limit allows to be shown, icon representing "more" will be shown.

Not displaying Authors can also be achieved for a single page by placing behaviour switch __NOAUTHORS__ on the page.

Rights (permissions)

This extension does not require any special rights. All users having "read" permission for the article can also see the authors of that article.


Authors requires BlueSpiceFoundation and BlueSpiceAvatars.
