K2 Extra Fields Support was created by Nathan Morrow
Hi there,

Love the ochOpenGraph plugin and I'd love to use it on a couple of large sites I look after that are using K2 - massive sites so too big to migrate back to Joomla core with lots of extra fields in play.

So just wondering if there's any chance you'd considering adding support for K2's extra fields in the same way you do the core Joomla custom fields?

Thanks

Nathan

Hi Nathan,
thanks for using ochOpenGraph.

I would need to investigate if this is possible. With the Joomla Custom Fields it is as 'easy' as calling a helper function to fetch an image for an article. I do not know if K2 is as open as Joomla is.

ochOpenGraph also supports Custom Images, I have introduced these before the 'birth of Custom Fields.
These could also be used to use specific images for articles (on any component). That would probably mean uploading all images in a specific filename format. Not sure if this is an option?

Anyway, if you have a test site that I can have (ftp) access to i could investigate how it works and if it is doable (or if there are other clever options).

I can do that in the last week of august as I am packing for holidays as we speak :)

Hi Ruud,

Sorry for the slow reply, been a busy week!

K2 has built in Image and Text fields and I'm guessing i'm hoping they can be used.

Unfortunately the two websites I'd like to use it on have over a couple of thousand articles each so I don't the Custom Images folder would be very practical... really needs to be something we can set within each K2 article.

I'm just finishing off some updates to our Stage site so once that's complete, happy to provide you with admin and FTP access so you can have a look... will let you know when it's available.

Hope you're enjoying your holiday!

Thanks

Nathan

Hi Ruud,

My very sincere apologies... for some reason your forum notification went to my Junk box and I've only just found it while clearing it out.

I have no doubt missed the window of opportunity on your To Do list but I'd still love to progress this at some stage so let me know if that's an option and I can provide you with access to the development site... I've added the email to my address book so won't miss any further notifications.

Thanks

Nathan

Hi Nathan,

no problem, with the amount of spam messages being sent on a daily basis it is just a matter of time before a legit message gets marked :)

as said: ready when you are :)

You can sent me URL and credentials to your test site via email, we can take it from there.

regards,
Ruud.

Thanks Ruud.

I've a couple of things to configure on the Dev site so I'll send you the details via email in the next couple of days.

Thanks again.

Nathan
