I had a look at the K2 Content Construction component – I was intrigued because it claims to be a similar to Drupal’s CCK (Content Construction Kit), of which I had heard a lot. I installed it and yes, it is very similar to Drupal – baffling interface and baffling documentation.
The lack of a usability perspective is obvous – as in Drupal.
I think the secret to Drupal’s die-hard group of fans it that they have invested so much into deciphering it that they cannot think of using anything else now. It is like a new car that promises fantastic features providing you understand how it is put together.
Get real, people – technology is for ordinary folks and not for ‘code is poetry’ types.
On K2: Although initially confusing, not least because it has its own CSS layout which can appear independent of your template design – K2 appears to be a fantastic extension – check this video review out – it has bugs and is nowehere near maturity yet – but holds a lot of promise.
Try and install it without sample data – I found it easier to figure out without the data.
