Browsing ClassifierDescription
AZCompactListClassifier plugin for sorting alphabetically (on a-z, A-Z, 0-9). Produces a horizontal A-Z list, then a vertical list containing documents, or bookshelves for documents with common metadata.
AZCompactSectionListVariation on AZCompactList that classifies sections rather than documents. Entries are sorted by section-level metadata.
AZListClassifier plugin for sorting alphabetically (on a-z, A-Z, 0-9). Produces a horizontal A-Z list, with documents listed underneath.
