We want people to be able to get out more from Joomla! using K2 and be able to have a powerful content management solution which we consider enterprise-class, yet easy to use even for a small blog.
New getk2.orgThe big change is we're going "full-on Joomla!". That means the community is getting an update and now everything will be integrated into one site only. And all in one Joomla! based website (sorry Ning). The current platform based on Ning was good when we launched the project, as it allowed us to setup the community fast. But now that K2 is the no.1 content management extension/CCK in the Joomla! community with over 300 supporting extensions in the JED alone, the project's needs are different.
The new site will feature a revamped community forum, with integrated localized communities for french and spanish speaking users. It will also feature a showcase section for the best K2 websites, a directory for K2 extensions, languages and templates, and finally a new documentation section with both written and video content, which users can contribute to.
All under one roof, all based on K2, with the exception of the community, which is run on the excellent Kunena forum extension - don't get us wrong, we also love Ninjaboard, but we're keeping that for the JW "home" ;-)
