author element

By Opera Software

From Opera 15 onward, Opera 11 & 12’s extension format is no longer supported, and instead, we’ve switched to Chromium’s extension model. Check out our new documentation for developing extensions for Opera 15 and higher and start building your own extensions.


The <author> element is used to provide details regarding the author of the extension. The following attributes are associated with it.

  • href: Specifies a website most relevant to the author
  • email: Specifies an email address of the author


<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<widget xmlns="" id="" version="1.0">
  <author href="" email="[email protected]">
    Erik the Viking
