Powerful Joomla Content Component ‘K2’

Looking for a component in Joomla that provides you rich content management features and a host of new features over your regular article management ? K2 is the perfect answer

K2 was built as a complete replacement of the default article system in Joomla.
Install it like any Joomla! extension, import your articles from the default Joomla! article system and you instantly get a host of new features for your existing content: rich content forms for items (think of Joomla! articles with additional fields for article images, videos, podcasts & other audio files, image galleries and attachments), hassle-free image management (uploaded item images are auto-resized to 6 configurable dimensions, either globally or per category – you can now forget about using Photoshop resizing!), comments, tagging, built-in options to extend content forms (e.g. to create product catalogs), powerful content modules fetching K2 content in any way you can imagine, frontend editing with easy to use access control settings (for content-heavy websites), powerful yet easy templating (and sub-templating) for going above the “Joomla! average”, extended user profiles, user groups, blogs, a powerful plugin API to extend item/category/user forms, “drag and drop” media manager and many more!

You can also add and manage your content other than the articles directly as items with all the features available.
K2 is extensible with additional fields to its base item form, you can easily create category-specific content types, e.g. article, blog post, product page, directory listing.

In Short it saves a lot of precious time for the website administrators in the management of their content on the site by providing a complete management panel at one place rather than managing several separate extensions for the site.

Edit_Item

K2 is also supported by almost all the popular template providers for Joomla. It is available for all the past and current Joomla versions i.e. 1.5, 2.5 and 3.0

With more than 1 million downloads already, it’s no wonder that K2 is the most popular content component available in Joomla. So, go ahead install it now and start using K2.
