Joomlaworks K2 Video Review

One of the more exciting new releases for Joomla 1.5 recently has been K2 from Joomlaworks.

K2 is a content construction component, which lets you create custom content types (items) for your Joomla! website. With K2, build all sorts of different types of page: news, blogs, product catalogs, work portfolio, knowledge base, download/document manager, directory listing, event listing etc.

I thought I wold take k2 for a spin in a "raw" video review. I installed K2 and put it through its paces without ever having used it before. Raw look, no reading documentation, just install it and play!


Summary

K2 is a CCK-like component for Joomla 1.5 that let's you create different item/view types. Its flexible and powerful. Its rough around the edges (still in beta), but a great addition to a Joomla designer's toolbox.

 

Check out our K2-ready templates JS Community and JS Appbox, built to style K2.
