Hello, good morning.

I'm landing here, in the world of Joomla + K2, getting out scared of wordpress. I've been searching on how to create a simple application for Authors, Books and Critics, but I can not find if this is a good approach.

Could you please tell me if this kind of webapp can be done with Joomla + K2? If so, would you kindly point me at some documentation from where to start?

Thanks and sorry for the noob question.

Can you explain which relationships you'd expect between these 3 entities?

E.g. books can be K2 items assigned to certain K2 users (the authors). Where would the critics fit in that relationship? I would recommend for example pre-approved users in K2 (in fact a special user group called "Critics") that have the right to comment on each K2 item that is a book.

Would that fit your needs?

If you use & love K2, please take a moment to add your review and rate it

Hello all!! Let me be more specific:

I need to build a system where the system users are able to:

- As a user I want to register a new book Author (if not already on DB)
- As a user I want to register a new Book (if not already on DB)
- As a user I want to write a literary critic for a specific book <- this is the main purpose of the system.
- As a user I want to browse all Shakespeare (Author) books.
- As a user I want to browse all Macbeth's (Book) critics....

Using comments for the literary critic, from my point of view, it's not the best approach. A literacy critic it's a normal Article but a different type of Article. (in Wordpress they are Custom Types)

Creating content that displays differently for authors, critics, books etc. is not a big deal with K2. You can even have separate fields (as K2 has a built-in fields system - like metaboxes in WP) assigned to each entity.

After that it's all a matter of organizing and displaying your content as you like.
