Suitable for shops, catalogs, product sites and anyone who wants to add an opportunity to search and filter the content generated by K2.
"Filter for K2" is AJAX based module for filtering of K2 items.
With this module you can easily filter your K2 items by the values from the extra fields, by category or tag. You can choose to filter the items from one or several categories. You also have the option to choose exactly which specific items to be available for filtration. "Filter for K2" allows you to filter by one or several fields. In module parameters you can choose which fields to be loaded into the module and respectively which the user can filter out.
*** Every K2 extra field can be transformed to: ***
* single select
* chosen fields
* range fields (numeric values)
* check box
* radio buttons
*** The other unique option is that you can choose the layout of the module - it can behave like standard module or like component (like com_search) with own menu and view. ***
In "Filter for K2" module you can also choose the filtering logic.
Parameter "Fields Compare Type" - Allows you to choose a logical operator when you select values from several fields. The options are "AND" and "OR". The AND operator displays items if both the first condition and the second condition are true. The OR operator displays a items if either the first condition or the second condition is true.
Parameter "Fields Values Compare" – allows you to select the logic when selecting values from one field. The options are "AND" and "OR". The AND operator displays a items if both the first condition and the second condition are true. The OR operator displays a items if either the first condition or the second condition is true.
The additional options of the module allows you to select the number of columns for the multiselect lists, the number of columns to be displayed for the filtered items, items per page and more.

Furthermore the support is almost immediate: I wrote an e-mail concerning a small problem and I got the solution in a while. Thanks Styleware!
I bought this extension for about a year ago, and now I cant imagine my site without it.
I had an issue a few months ago when they updated my server.
I contacted the StyleWare suport, and within a few hours, they solved the problem.
We had a few niggles and hitches with the module but the support from Styleware has been fantastic - super prompt every time and they went the extra mile to achieve the perfection my client insisted on, tweaking things here and there till it was just right.
We love the range sliders. Initially these didn't work that well on mobiles but as soon as we raised this issue, the developers fixed it so it now works a treat.
I simply can't fault these guys, they are always there when you need them.
It is well worth the price tag and I would highly recommend it. Excellent work!
I had a some questions, and in a few minutes I had the response from support.
the only minus is that there is no documentation, but wasn't a problem the quick and effective support answered all my questions and solved all my problems.
Thanks for the review.
We added user manual for the module. Check it here:
No documentation. The support is fairly quick and of very good quality, but documentation would be needed to fully grasp the capabilities of the modules.
Would be interesting to be able to prefilter results by an extra field. For now you can only call items from a category or manually select them.. after that all filtering options are available to you.
*******Pros : this is the best solution out there for filtering.************
Also tried the joomlart solution but the fact that its a component is a drawback.
Thanks for the feedback. We added documentation file. It can be downloaded from the product page or from this direct link:
That was until I found the "Extra Fields" and their power.
Yes, they are powerful, but when combined with K2 Filter.... oh my... - It's is everything I ever looked for. You can easily option in/out an extensive list of options, to give your site the look you want!
And the support? Maybe I was lucky, but I had my forum questions answered in less than 30 minutes.
I was about to give this Extension a 4 star rating because of "pagination" issue, but the creator told me they are figuring a way of solving it, so....
Thank you so much, you are the best!
I recomend to to use this module if you need price filtering, or any other filtering who use extra fields.
This is the only one that have all features that I need:
very fast, user friendly and no need to refresh the page.
I'm really pleased.
With these guys from StyleWare things are different. First of all this Filter for K2 is really fast! And it's nice and easy to use.
But then the support of StyleWare. In one word, awesome! These guys give you really great support and fast! They even (re)wrote my helper file for specific ordering. This is really amazing.
Look no further if you need a filter for your K2 items. This is it!!
