Hi Fotis, thank you for your interest. To be more clear, I have some K2 items with content in their extra fields and the Front End editing only for the extra fields is disabled. When I open a K2 item for Front End editing and I make and save some changes (e.g. in the introtext or fulltext), then ONLY the content of the extra fields is deleted.

I assume that the Front End editing of the extra fields is not being checked during the update and thus null values are passed for the extra fields of the K2 items.

The title of the topic may be misleading, so to help others it may be changed to "The content of K2 Extra Fields is deleted after frontend editing of K2 item".

Thank you!

Yeah, it's probably a bug then. I'm noting it down to fix (hopefully) by v2.9.0 which is out this week. If I can't make it for 2.9.0, then it's 2.9.1 in the next 2 months as I'm shifting releases to be available sooner now (not once a year as in the past).

It's a bug already. When extra fields are hidden (and I assume not just extra fields) the data is nulled in the database for all the hidden elements. Please avoid using frontend editing until I resolve the matter. Sorry for the confusion.

Actually, it was a lot easier to fix than I originally thought.

Just install the dev version github.com/getk2/k2/archive/master.zip and you'll be set.
