    JoomlaPDX User Group Monthly Meeting

    Henry V

    Everything You Wanted to Know About Joomla! Content Construction Kits (CCKs), but where afraid to ask.

    What is a content construction kit? Which one should I use? What are the differences between K2, jSeblod, Zoo, and FlexiContent, the four most popular CCKs in use today. How difficult is a CCK to learn and use? What affect will a CCK have on my template or design?

    In our Joomla content construction kit presentation we are going to show you. The presentation will cover what a CCK is and why you may want to use one. We'll walk through some feature comparisons of the top four CCKs in use today to help you in choosing the right one. Discuss some of the pros and cons when implementing a CCK, like how the new content affects your templates and layouts. We'll take a sneak peek at some new CCK beta's for Joomla 1.6 and end with a discussion on what features may still be missing in the Joomla core versus a content construction kit.

    What You’ll Learn

    • What is a CCK
    • CCK features vs Joomla 1.5 content construction (the S.C.A.M)
    • Comparison chart of K2, jSeblod, Zoo, and FlexiContent
    • Quick administrative back end look at each.
    • Discuss which tie into Joomla's com_component and which don't effecting module creation.
    • A quick look at Joomla 1.6 and the new CCK beta.
