Worked within 2 minutes of installing it, nice to be able to choose extra categories. Worked great for a few days, all of a sudden today it wouldn't let me add an item, doing a search of the error lead to their forum, where there was very clear, and I have to say EASY, instructions on how to fix it. Applied the fix, all is well. Thanks for great extension.

I installed this and it worked immediately. It doesn't mix up existing categories with additional ones. There is a separate field for the additional categories.

One suggestion that might add a lot to K2 is would be the ability to synchronise K2 tags with K2 additional categories.

Simply install. And it works. Outstanding.

URLs is appended to the default-configured category. Now, if only K2 would append all item URLs to the component root, as other CMS and CCK web applications do, the package would be perfected.

Thanks to the developer.

I must say that this is a much needed function for K2.

I'm very grateful for this extension, since it really helped me solve some problems!

Extension itself is great, it does exactly what it says. Installation is super easy and no core files are hacked just great.

Not only extension was great but also documentation. Everything was explained very well and developer also has included suggestions for some common problems that might occur, which is amazing, since not a lot of people think about these things.

It seems that this extension is even better than some paid alternatives. I will definitely be donating soon!

Perfect plugin. I think this feature should be implemented into K2 because it`s something that many users use. It`s very important feature and this plugin works just fine. If you have SQL error in Joomla 3 check the support forum there is a fix for that issue.

This plugin does what it says. It allows you to assign multiple categories to K2 items. It doesn't do any core file hacking of the original K2 and its databases, but comes with its own.

Additional categories that you have assigned to items with this plugin are basically secondary categories. The primary category is the original K2 category. You can only have one primary and multiple secondary categories.

Items will keep the URL structure of the primary category to prevent duplicated content.

Why this feature isn't already in the K2 core is beyond me.

Note: If you use Joomla 2.5, there is a chance that you can't see the additonal categories in the backend. However there is a fix in the support forum available.

If you want to show the additional items also in the module categories please feel free to ask me! I solve this problem with a big job from the creator of this plugin!
