Hi,

I am trying to figure out how to achieve something that Joomla has for a very long time.

I would like to show only intro text for a guests and the text "Register to read more". When guests clicks on that link, they would be redirected to the registration form.

This can be achieved with "Show unauthorized links" in Joomla

How can I achieve the same in K2? Is that possible?

hi! Look at this thread community.getk2.org/forum/topics/what-happened-to-option-for?commentId=3536014%3AComment%3A32190

...should give you an idea of what to do. You only have to find a way to redirect to login module!

Hi,

thank you for a quick reply. I was hoping that by now, this feature would be implemented in K2. Fotis mentioned that this is already possible (in a Twitter conversation) but I was never able to achieve this.

This would be a great feature if developers could add it in the official installation

Hi,

you can easily apply changes to the articles and categories views if you use overrides in Joomla.

Just copy needed files in your template/html folder (create one if you don't have it) and make changes. Good thing about K2 is that you just need to make changes to the representation layer so you can easily and without fears upgrade K2 and your changes will stay as you want them.

I did those changes and the result can be visible here

I also need a 'register to read more' function. Can you explain this process a bit more for a newbie?

Thanks!

Hi,

I will try. Here are the steps you should follow before you even apply code changes:

1. create the following folder structure under your template's folder (if html folder already exists, omit it)

html
com_k2
templates
default

2. copy the following files under templates folder
generic.php
user.php
3. copy the following file under the default folder
category_item.php

Apply code changes as described in attached txt file. This post editor doesn't allow me to insert code in the post directly.

Do the code changes in all three php files that you copied in step 3

I hope that you will succeed. Observe that I am using Community builder so I placed a link to it's registration page in my code changes

Awesome that worked! Only thing is un-registered users can still click on the item title and see the full story. I just made titles non-linked and problem solved! Thanks so much!

I know. I did the same. If you use K2 module to show articles, you will have to apply those code changes in the same way.
