Hi There,

With k2 it appears more and more members aren't using k2 following the delay on k3

I will pass on your suggestions

... may be true, but K2 still has the largest support of other party templates with specific styles, modules and plugins (like Zentools and Gavicks NSP). Still no other CCK comes even close.

So please, keep up the good work.

I am developing K2 site now. It'd be nice to know are there any news regarding K2 tags as a filter in ZT2? Is it hard to implement the new filter as Joomla tags are present now? Is it worth of waiting and how long?

Hi Tomek,

How many items would be in the tags?

Hi Paul
I presume up to dozen. I know it couldn't be to much items as page will be slow. So I plan to limit the number of displayed items by additional filter "featured".

Hi Tomek,

There may be a work around but it would involve more work

Using the gallery as the content source and the filter layout

With the gallery content you can add an image, intro / full text, tags and links

With this it would be a fake k2 filter

The images do you need to be in a root image folder for the gallery to pick up the folder

I've created a sample gallery here

openalldoors.co.uk/italian/index.php/sample-menu

on an old italian dev version, it is the module named Starters (2)

The links are random but in your case would point to your k2 content

I appreciate this is a bit of convoluted work around

Thank you Paul for your hint. It is smart one. But I thought rather of content selection rather than filter layout. I plan to have ZT2 grid layout with content made of K2 items. Those K2 items would be selected not by category or name but by K2 tag. Is it possible in updated module?
