Hi I a have critical problem with the K2 extra fields and the Joomla v 3.8.7 and K2 v 2.8.0 .

I have the 'Extra fields' tab on edit form disabled for frontend editing, however when I edit a K2 item from the frontend then the whole content of the K2 extra fields is deleted. I noticed that this is happening only after the last update to Joomla 3.8.7.

Notice that when the 'Extra fields' tab on edit form is enabled for frontend editing then the content of the K2 extra fields remains after frontend editing on a K2 item.

Thank you in advance for any assistance!

Hello Greg,

Can you backup and install the 2.8.1 DEV version?

Thank you for the response! I tried with no luck the current K2 version 2.8.1 available from Github (please provide me with the right link in case I have downloaded it from the wrong source). I suppose that an additional check is needed (if content exists or not in k2 item extra fields) when the frontend editing is disabled for extra fields, so as to prohibit to write empty values back to db.

Are you by any chances using overrides for the itemform.php file?

Hi Krikor thak you for the interest!
I am using a template override for K2, however in itemform.php I have not changed something, it contains only the following:
require_once(JPATH_SITE.'/administrator/components/com_k2/views/item/tmpl/default.php');

Also before posting I have tried with no luck the following:

1) I removed the override so as to check if it is responsible for the problem.
2) I tried a fresh installation of last Joomla with both the K2 2.8.0 and the dev version from Github.
3) I checked if the issue might be caused from the editor, however the result is the same with both the built in editors and JCE.

Just to clarify, extra fields are disabled for editing from the K2 settings right? If so, how can you edit them in the frontend and save?
