Set up is a bit of a pain, however, especially if you're importing a large number of articles. Every image has to be removed and replaced and that takes a lot of time. And then, if you change something in your layout, say decreasing the image sizes by 20px, you have to do it all over again: delete and replace.
If there was a way to get around that issue, this system would be perfect.
Actually there is. For imported articles from Joomla!, you can use the IAKI plugin http://getk2.org/extend/extensions/616-iaki-import-as-k2-image (a featured K2 extension in getk2.org) which makes the first image of your content a K2 image. So in such a case, you really don't need to manually import your images as K2 images, this plugin does everything for you and it respects the image dimensions as set in your K2 categories. As for what happens when you need to change your K2 image settings inside category parameters, well, the answer is simple: K2 will keep the existing images and HTML resize them to the new dimensions. If these dimension changes are less than 50px upwards, then the effect on image quality is nearly unnoticeable. If you need to change the dimensions more, then simply swap your image settings to use the next bigger dimension. So, e.g. if you used the "Medium" dimension setting in your K2 Category listings, swap to "Large" and let K2 HTML resize them downwards. The result will be what you need.
My only complaint is this: I have four albums in my band's discography and a player set up for each one on a different page, but when you click "NEW WINDOW" it always opens up album #4 regardless of which album page you are on.
My only complaint is that new pages don't scroll to the top of the page, nor is there any way I have found to do that. That's a small thing in such a great extension.
if you have very long multipage forms and need the page to flip on top, this might be your solution:
Many thanks for the review!
My only complaint is with the image browser. ALL images MUST be in the "Stories" folder and you can't navigate out to the "Images" folder. A small quibble, I know, but it's annoying.
