After developer creates the search module for searching in the added fields values, this extension become a true (and in some parts better) competitor for K2 etc.
This is difficult to do because of the architecture of the extension. All values additional fields stored in one cell of a database and are not suitable for a full search.
- Some more fields, like dropdowns, urls, geo, selects group, which must be styleable with custom css classes;
- Allowing nested/conditional fields;
- Filter output templateable, like category blog etc;
- All fields/values must be discretely available from DB, (not all field values inside of one array);
After this extention grows into described direction, all other CCKs will say goodbye. The cause is simple: there are many CCKs in Joomlaversum, but all of them have weak sides. The most weak sides are: using of own, not native Joomla content items, impossibility of detailed search within own content. This one can do both: create fields for Joomlas native content items AND do detailed search within own fields. Tomasz, do it good and consequent, and you will be quickly on top!
Many thanks for your review and high rating. I added your proposals to my task list. If you'll have following solution please let my know.
I would like to comply my component to the largest group users as posible.
Users, NOTE: if you have your Joomla installation in a subdirectory, if you add URLs for adding metas, you must add subdurectory name to the URL Path too. In the URLs manager write something like /subdirname/your-defined-page-for-meta.html. If you don't add subdirectory name to the URL path, the added metas will not be attached to your defined page despite you add them in URLs and meta manager!
Earn money with K2Store without fear: the developers don't just code, they advise befor and after sale too.
This module earns all best notes from me. It is possible to use it on commercial projects - with this quality of support you will be not lost.
There are more functions in a comparison with other K2 search modules: i say just "working connected fields";)
A bit tricky is the arrangement of the search elements with the module own ordering options, but i went another way and solved this with the ordering of fields in my K2 backend.
Btw: last 2 K2 updates are not a problem for this module: i tested it by myself, and asked the developer. He answered, there are no troubles counted.
The dissatisfied side is: if you need help from K2 community or developers, you lost. K2 team doesn't care about community. Very very important bugs with thousends affected users, like duplicated urls issue, are not answered from team till year. The answers, which was given, was just "go away"-answers, they gave no real solution. Active users are just spamers for K2 team, which must kept away from posting through filling captchas, even after registering and more then 40 topics. In the forum with more then 13k threads is 1 (one) active moderator, who isn't knowledgable enough, like team members must be.
Yes, K2 is free. You can use it, there are many good extentions for it too. If you good know, how k2 works, you will be happy with it. And you can let it be, if you plan a project, which must earn money and you need developers help.
I use k2 at a commercial project and i'm really scared, what will happens with the project, if my knowledge will be once not enough and i haven't somebody to help.
First off, the right place to post verified bugs is not on the forum, as they can easily get lost inside any kind of request. The proper way to submit a bug in the K2 Bug Tracker at http://getk2.org/bugtracker - in there you'll see that we address ALL bug reports. If you have a valid bug please post it there.
The K2 Community moderators are doing a great job, far better than many other communities. If they don't reply to some request, that's probably because you didn't search first.
Now as for K2 credibility, I'll never stop repeating that: a) K2 is supported by a company that's been around since 2006, is profitable and going strong year after year and b) K2 is used by the most high profile Joomla! websites being built since 2009.
The possibility to host scripts and fonts remotely must be a part of J!-core!
thanks for the nice thing! it was here in JED a similar one, but only for J!1.5, and i can't fint yours long time. But finally!
Another good thing is this extention utilizes Joomla own tabs/slides engine - this causes a better site performance.
But for this idea i forecast a big future for this extention! This is a sole Joomla ecommerce extention, which uses REGULAR, NATIVE Joomla content items as shop goods. This means, you may use all parts of Joomla universe with your ecommerce items. The developer must only do his job good, keep bugs away and so on, and we get really beautiful ecommerce extention with long life and much usefulness.
Thank you. We will continue to improve the extension and add more features very soon.
And better support you wouldn't wish - the f2c-guys are proactiv, skliful and easygoing. All in all, if you wish well structured information on you site without deployment and running troubles, take f2c.
the setting of this plugin (and for the tab-plugin too) is transparent and easy understandable - you must only read the documentation, copy the example, try it works and adjust it for your needs.
Thank you very much :)
Instead of copying the example, you can also use the editor button to insert the example code...
