BNR Content for K2 Module

Editor's Note
  • This extension requires registration to download.
K2 is a powerful extension that allows for incredible control of your Joomla content. This module is a modification to the standard K2 content display module. Rather than define the content you want to display in the module, this module pulls the item data from the current item being displayed.

This allows you to expand your layout options since you can now display part of the item content in the main content display area and other bits of content in the module positions. You can even load more than one module per page to deliver highly complex layouts with the content exactly where you want it!

The module supports multiple instance on a single page so putting item content exactly where you want it is no problem. K2 Plugins are triggers so the module can also be used to display the K2Mart buy now box in any module position.

If you find this extension useful, be sure to rate and review! Thanks!

does exactly what it says, lots of brillant options for individual needs...I just cannot figure out the following:
how can I build k2 item page from these modules only? right now my extra fields are being displayed in module as well as in main to turn off main content display?
And how can I avoid these modules being displayed in category view, but only show in item view?
anyway, 5 stars for this great module!

Actually, i had one problem, because my K2 load some plugins... and when K2 BNR Content try to use the content of the items, it automatically load the plugins... so I had to do some changes...

Except for that, it works as advertised, thanks a lot!
Owner's reply

Thanks for the review Fabiojordan. Hopefully you figure this out, but you can fix the plugin problem with a subtemplate. Simply removing the plugin event triggers from the subtemplate will prevent any plugins from working in the module. This can be done for both K2 and Joomla plugin event triggers.

Thanks again for the review!
