I've put this video together to showcase some of the newest and greatest features of K2, a popular extension for Joomla CMS. If you already have a Joomla site, watch this video to see how easy the K2 framework can make it for you to work with images, galleries, videos, custom fields, and attachments.
If you don't already have a Joomla site, you're really missing out! :-)
1. I didn't rehearse or practice when making this video. It's a "rough cut" so don't act surprised when you hear my phone vibrate or my computer chime when receiving email.
2. This is NOT an in-depth look at any code, so if you are a programmer and are familiar with K2, you might not learn much from this video.
I am available for hire - I work through ad agencies as well as directly for businesses in developing custom, open-source solutions. I can work with stock templates or with artwork that you provide. Contact me today for a free consultation and estimate. [http://www.covingtoncreations.com]
In this issue of 10 Minute Joomla! Tips we are going to take a look at Joomla's Sections and Categories structure.
No other topic has confused so many people so needlessly in the Joomla world. Sections and Categories are simply a categorization system where Sections could more easily be thought about as Categories and the categories themselves as "sub-categories".
I am sure, many are now just as confused as before. So why not view this Screencast and take a look not only at what Sections and Categories are, but also at the new K2 component, which turns the concept on its head (and forecasts the way the upcoming new version of Joomla will work), as well as how to create the proper menu links to display sections and categories in Joomla.
This is a 15 minute long version of the Screencast and I had to create a 2 part series for youtube viewers. Since I didn't want to start calling it the "15 minute Joomla! tips" screencast, I hope you can forgive this breach in format.
Enjoy the video.
