Hello,

currently the version 2.9.0 is stable.
Is there in meantime an option to deactivate CDN loads or do I have further to modify core files?

In the upcoming K2 v2.10.0 (currently 2.9.1 on GitHub) we use jsDelivr's CDN so the K2 package is smaller and so client-side performance is better. There is no option to disable it currently.

If you wish to manually change the CDN references, only 4 files contain jsDelivr URLs:
/administrator/components/com_k2/elements/k2tags.php
/administrator/components/com_k2/elements/k2users.php
/administrator/components/com_k2/helpers/html.php
/administrator/components/com_k2/helpers/stats.php

According our GDPR we really need such an option to disable complete CDN loads.

Please insert such an option so we don´t need to change manually core files which gets overwritten on each update...

That's exactly the reason we switched from CDNJS (by CloudFlare) to jsDelivr. The latter stores nothing personal from users. See this: github.com/jsdelivr/jsdelivr/issues/18067

Hello,
I think it would be also a great feature if your users have the ability to decide if they want to use CDN.
Such a features should not explode your development ressources I think...

Like I said, it increases the package size a lot.

But any developer could make a plugin that makes K2 "GDPR friendly" by dynamically replacing the CDN URLs.

If K2 does not use CDN, it will increase the size of the installation package to unacceptable. Then, if you can develop another plug-in, you can provide file loading localization function independently.
Even if this plugin is a fee, I can accept it, this is at least a solution.
Otherwise I can only manually hack the K2 core file.

The next update will use jsDelivr which -if I recall properly- is GFW friendly. Are you referring to something else?

Yes, I am very happy to see an improvement in this issue.
But there is still a need to not use CDN at all. For example, I need to develop a website used in the LAN for information management, user management and other functions.
Not using a CDN can make the problem much simpler.
If the website must load the CND file, then
1. When developing a website, you must connect to the Internet, otherwise you will not be able to develop.
2. When using the website system, the website users must also connect to the Internet, and cannot use it directly on the local area network.

Although for many people, the Internet is ubiquitous, it does not necessarily exist for everyone or all projects. I hope that K2 can satisfy more usage scenarios, so I have been paying attention to this issue.

Thank you.

I'll see if there's an option to use LocalStorage for that. It would make working offline easier, without the need to bundle all external assets into K2. The only requirement would be to load your local site once over a network connection so the browser could cache the 3rd party assets. And of course this way of using K2 could be an option that you switch to on in K2's settings, aka, it would not affect the actual live/production website.

Noted on my to-do.
