Hi to everyone. I have a question about K2 extra field: it's possible to call inside the content one or more k2 extra fields tag?

If so which tag or call i will need to use? Thanks

Yes.

To directly output individual extra fields in your K2 overrides, do something like this (e.g. in item.php) to get the extra field name:
echo $this->item->extraFields->EXTRAFIELD_ALIAS_HERE->name;

To get the extra field value you would simply do this:
echo $this->item->extraFields->EXTRAFIELD_ALIAS_HERE->value;
echo $this->item->extraFields->EXTRAFIELD_ALIAS_HERE->rawValue; // for date type only

Simply replace EXTRAFIELD_ALIAS_HERE with the actual alias of the extra field you wish to output.

In modules, use:
echo $item->extraFields->EXTRAFIELD_ALIAS_HERE->value;
echo $item->extraFields->EXTRAFIELD_ALIAS_HERE->rawValue; // for date type only

Hi Fotis and thanks for your reply. Basically i need to call some of K2 extra field like shortcode to render data inside the article. Example:

Your name: (extra field > Name)

The result will be Your name: Fotis.

How i can do that? Thanks

When you say "need to call some of K2 extra field like shortcode to render data inside the article", do you actually mean the WYSIWYG editor? If so, this is not currently possible as it would require a plugin to do that (perhaps a generic plugin to render PHP would work).

However, is there really a point in doing that? The K2 item form is input and the resulting page in the frontend is output. You want to render the output into the input page. It would only confuse your users...

If you explain WHY you want to do this, I might be able to provide a more elegant solution.

Yes WYSIWYG editor. I use JCE that though the configuration option is possible to enable the function to add Php code inside the article.

The purpose about why i am thinking about the above, it's because it could save time to populate some data inside the article avoiding that the user can copy and paste manually all the time. Thanks

Then you should be looking at a plugin that copies the extra fields (values) from another item as its own. The gist is that both items should belong to categories that use the same extra fields group so that when you load to edit the item with the copied values, they show up just fine in the K2 item edit form.

Since this is a bit of an edge case, we can custom build the plugin for you if you sponsor it and we can open source it afterwards so it's constantly maintained by either us or other volunteers/users.

Hi Alex,

I have developed the TExtrafield plugin 3 years ago

I think it will help you to add the extra fields inside the content, just with the shortcode {extrafield aliasname}

Where aliasname is the extrafield alias.
