I dont like using third party CCK (like k2 or Flexicontent) because of the subsequent problem of looking for extensions with the "k2 compatible" tag or the "flexicontent plugin avalaible"... (if you have used a joomla CCK anytime, you know what i am talking about, and the problem when you like an extension, but not supports your CCK... )
So, when i saw "Joomla Custom Fields" for first time i fall in love...
I read that Joomla Custom Fields were based in DPFields, and i read in it's webpage "DPFields: The CCK you want" (https://joomla.digital-peak.com/products/dpfields)
I thought that CCK would be, at least, native in Joomla!
...but after that I have seen developers of Joomla saying than Joomla Custom Fields are not a CCK...

It will probably never be possible to search / filter by field, due to performance issues. Fields are not a CCK...
So, can anyone explain me if "Joomla Custom Fields" are (or will be) a CCK? or simply... Have "Joomla Custom Fields" a real future as CCK or they have been born dead?mbabker commented on 19 Mar
Fields can't be used for filters on list views. That requires CCK type architecture that is not supported.
(Of course, my respects and admiration for all people who works hard for Joomla!)
