Real Preview for K2 2.5 installs like any other Joomla extensions. There are 4 things to install:

  1. Component
  2. Content PLugin
  3. K2 Content plugin
  4. K2 System plugin

Make sure you publish all three plugins.

How do I use it?

You simply install and publish the plugins as normal and carry on using K2 as you always have. It is meant to be a quiet extension that enhances the great Joomla K2 CCK - you won't notice much difference except the addition of a versions panel on the top right.

NB: You dont access the component from the component menu - just use K2 as normal - Real Preview will handle the rest.

Configuration Options

There is one main configuration option which lets you alter the preview method from new window to Joomla modal. To change the default from modal to new window you do need to access the extension from the component menu->k2-real-preview.

Click on options and select new window. When you preview the preview of the draft will open in a new window.

Backwards compatability

Real Preview for K2 2.5 is intended to be backwards compatible with K2 2.4 so you canuse it on Joomla 1.5 + K2 2.4.1

However we recommend using K2 2.5 and Joomla 1.7 since Joomla 1.5 and K2 2.4.1 will be rapidly redundant in the next 6 months
