K2 meets JCE 2.0 - love at first... site!
As you already know, I am a big fan of Ryan Demmer's JCE (Joomla! Content Editor). It's the one and only editor installed on all of my sites. I am also a huge fan of Nuevvo/JoomlaWork's K2 CCK extension. It's what powers this blog as well pretty much every other site I have ever and will ever build. Almost two years ago, I had written a nifty AdvLink plugin which enabled JCE 1.5.x to link to K2 categories and articles. Now that JCE 2.0 is being released, that plugin ceased to work. Guess what? I rewrote it and put it on steroids!
Ladies and gentlemen, it's my pleasure to present you with K2 Links for Advanced Link, version 2.0 2.1 2.2!
Version 2.2 of the plugin now works with Joomla! 2.5/3.0 and K2 2.6
This version is compatible with JCE 2.3 or later and K2 2.5 or later. Its features:
- Link to K2 Categories
- View and link to K2 items of a specific category
- Link to K2 Tags NEW!
- View and link to K2 items belonging to a specific K2 tag NEW!
Get the plugin today
(Version 2.2 - Updated 31 Jan 2013) - it's completely free of charge.
Edit Jan 2013: Hopefuly now that the link is in HUGE letters nobody will ask me again where to download it from...
Installation instructions - READ ME FIRST
It goes without saying, start by installing JCE 2.0 RC2 or later. This plugin will not work with JCE 1.5.x.
Click on Components, JCE Administration, Install Extensions. use the "Browse" button to pick the plugin's ZIP file, then click on "Install Package". DO NOT TRY TO INSTALL USING JOOMLA!'S EXTENSIONS INSTALLER.
Edit Jan 2013: And hopefuly now that the instructions are in HUGE letters you will stop asking me why you can't install this plugin through Joomla!'s extensions installer.
Should you need to configure the plugin, go to Components, JCE Administration, Profiles. Click the profile you want to configure. Click the "Plugin Parameters" tab on top. From the left hand tabs, click on "Link". Scroll down until you see the "K2 Links for Advaned Link" box. In there, there are three settings:
- Enable. When set to No, the plugin is disabled and you won't be able to link to K2 items
- Category Links. Allows you to browse and link to K2 categories, as well as browse and link to K2 items inside those categories.
- Tag Links. Allows you to browse and link to K2 tags, as well as browse and link to K2 items filed under those tags.
