Add-On Type(s)

Extension, Module


Shortlist is a quick and painless way to allow site visitors to create lists of items on the fly. Shorlist lets you add anything to a list. User's don't even need to have accounts with your site to create, keep and share their list.

Amazon style product wishlists? What e-commerce site should be without wishlists? Shortlist has you covered using any e-commerce package, from off-the-shelf to 100% custom.

Flickr style favourites? Quick, simple favouriting of any content. Images, groups of images, albums. Anything you’d like your users to add can be added in the blink of an eye.

All the Content you can Imagine

Does your site have content that isn’t stored in EE entries? No problem! Shortlist doesn’t care where your content comes from. If you can see it on your site, you can add it to a shortlist. Find out more about how shortlist handles arbitrary content.

Drop in. Make your list. Drop out

Don’t force your user’s to create accounts on your site just to make shortlists. Anyone can use it.

A List Shared is a Better List

What good is a list if you can’t share it with your friends? Every list can be shared freely with anyone. Owners of a list can change the list at any point. Viewing someone else’s list and like what you see? Use the clone tag and get your very own copy of the list to do with as you please.

Do More With Shortlist

Use shortlist to build trip planners for your travel site, user playlists for your music site, top 10 lists for your social site. For more detailed usage instructions, head over to the full documentation.

Excellent addon, does exactly what it promises.

Great add-on, works just as described. Used it in conjunction with CT to allow customers to add products to a quote rather than buy online. The quote list is then emailed to the shop owner for pricing. A breeze to work with and support from Joel was spot on!

I used to pay thousands of dollars of development to create a similar module on EE1. Upgrading a client to EE2 made me search for a better solution to what they had and Shortlist was the answer. Amazing support and quality add-on. It’s worth every dollar… Thanks Joel!

I bought Shortlist for users to mark entries as read/unread.This is a super nimble add-on. The documentation is amazing! What impress me the most is the support: I sent E-mail requesting making it MSM compatible last week, and guess what, within just a few days, Joel sent me back new version files!

Powerful add-on to be sure. 

Had some questions early on and Joel was super-responsive.

This is a great little add-on for sure. I like all the ajax-y fun you can have with it too!

Shortlist is a fantastic add-on and Joel offers prompt support for any questions that you may have. I’ve tried both the ‘Bookmarks’ add-on and the ‘Favorites’ add-on as well, but I honestly think Shortlist is the best of the three. Great features, price, and support makes it a great value.

Easy to setup and works very well. It’s got to be the quickest way to setup a list of favorites or stared items. Docs are really good as well.

Extremely simple and smart tool plus fantastic support! I received an updated version, just a few minutes after reporting an issue.

This - is how it should be!
