K2 slideshow migration and more

Hi guys,

After reading the article at http://magazine.joomla.org/issues/issue-nov-2013/item/1600-easyblog-fast-nice-easy I decided to buy the component and see if it is something I can use at one of my sites, in this case http://gamecritics.eu. After a couple of hours of playing and testing it looks like it is much and much more then I had expected. Maybe the Blog in EasyBlog always kept me away from trying it. Also K2 is still the most widely accepted and used cck as a replacement for the default Joomla articles system (I think). But EasyBlog looks really fresh, clean and simple to use and has so many configuration settings and also the themes are endless (with the Professional package). So it looks like I am going to take the plunge and give it a go. Before I do that, I have a few questions.

1. The migration tool for k2 articles including the default image works great from what I have tested so far. But I have many articles that have a slideshow of images as http://gamecritics.eu is a news website for gaming. The slideshow is being produced with the extension Simple Image Gallery Pro which is integrated in K2 in my website. Is it possible to migrate those slideshows too? If not, can you add that in the (near) future to the migration tool?

2. I was already using Komento for the comments section of the website, but EasyBlog has it's own comment system. What is suggested to use as the comment system in this case?

3. Is it correct that I should define all image sizes in the Media settings and Themes settings before I start migrating? Because it looks like when I change the image sizes in the settings afterwards, it doesn't change the image size in the frontend anymore. I am a bit anxious about this, because sometimes after some time you get to the conclusion that you want to change a few things because the current settings do not work as thought in the beginning.

Maybe I have a few more questions later (which cannot be found it the forums), but these are the ones I have at the moment.

Best regards,

Ewoud
