I purchase and installed the Minitek Content Notifications: the 2 month support.

Problem 1:
I don't not see the param in the (plugin version1.0.4) to input the download ID

Problem 2: --- not properly connected to K2

i.) For K2, items, it is not grabbing the "item # nor category ID: if set to auto....also if i use "AUTO" in the shortcode ..the FOLLOW link on on the published item/article becomes dead NOT clickable. however if i use a JOOMLA content category and article # in the K2 item shortcode then k2 article Link becomes alive with the Joomla category and article info.


The subscription on the k2 published pages is not showing the 2 check boxes for EMAIL and updates Notification

MY SHORTCODE used for testing:

with JOOMLA item number and category ID: in this case this case the wiget is now clickable BUT with the JOOMLA category and article info.

Hi there,

1. You need the Minitek Updates Authentication for that. You will find instructions here:

2 & 3. Both these problems occur because your website has javascript conflicts. Please see attached image.
Have you checked your website for javascript errors before installing the extension?
None of our extension will work if there are existing errors in the console.

Hi Yanis,

Please note that your software works on Joomla but does not work with K2.

OK i have done a CLEAN WEBSITE INSTALL in a new sub folder. I have not install any other extensions whatsoever except your content notification. I have tested and there is no javascript issues. The Joomla version is 3.72 and i re-downloaded your software and install it. However it is still not working with K2. it only works with JOOMLA.

Please test and see:

That's because you were using the code
in the shortcode.
I changed it to
and now everything works ok.

For K2 items, you must use

Hi Yannis,

Thank for the reply and the head up about the "com_k2" vs the "com_content"

I still have one problem using the below short code:



in both case joomla or K2, the ...item="auto" OK and picks up the article/item ID and shows the title to the user. However for category="auto" it does not pick up the category ID. I have to be manually putting in the category ID number for the category Title to show.

all the joomla articles on the site have the shortcode pasted at the bottom. i have the actually category ID written in each code ...please fix so i can just type "auto" to pick up the category title.

Hi Everton,

Yes, that true. The category="auto" will only work for category pages, not for article pages.

I will add this functionality in the next version.
