Multiple Extra Fields Groups for K2 Plugin

Editor's Note
  • This extension requires registration to download.
This is a very useful K2 plugin, which enables administrators of websites powered by Joomla and K2 to assign more than one K2 extra fields group to a K2 category.

The groups can be displayed in Accordion, Tabs or Falt layout, just like shown in the slides below.

The plugin also supports rendering multiselect fields as checkboxes, where K2 does not have checkbox field type.

The plugin enables ordering select/multiselect values alphabetically, core K2 does not support this feature till now.

Install this plugin to save time and complexity, you will not need to refactor your extra fields groups.

The plugin is integrated smoothly with K2 forms for categories and items, no need for extra forms or components.

For whom using K2 for directory or lisiting purposes, you can use this plugin to show values of select/multiselect/radiobutton fields as images/icons, like in a resturant, club or hotel, you need to show features/facilities as icons.

This is truly a great extension, I wonder why it is not an integrated part of K2!
Support is excellent also!

I'm building a quite complex site with 3 languages and a bunch of K2 overrides, so I could really see the idea in using MEFG.

I installed it and had some minor issues, which their support sorted out within the hour.
Installing their beta actually fixed the issue.

Then I started working with it and it's just great!
It does exactly what it says it does! :-)

In my K2 overrides I'm also extracting the extrafields for use in other places in the templateoverride and the extra field "image" was being a pain in the a** :-)
After a few emails betwen me and the support, they sent me a code snippet, that fixed it - thanks Mohamed!

And as they wrote: "this will be included in the coming update, as it should work like this"! :-)

Glad to have helped out!
Now go buy this awesome plug-in!

If you consider to reuse your info data in groups and repeatedly, such as catalog, web store, classified ads, this plugin is the best choice!

the support from the extension developer is very fast. Any inquiry almost was replied with perfect solution within a day.

I don't leave many reviews unless they really deserve it and this extension does in the most positive way. First, besides saving me the tedious and time consuming task of editing hundreds of extra fields for different K2 items, the support for the extension is first rate. There was a small jquery conflict and Mohamed really went the distance to come up with a solution. His support for the extension far outweighed the small price I paid for its use. This extension is a great value and does the job well. I highly recommend it if you need a way to add multiple extra field groups to K2 categories.

I am working on a complex content website. MEFG is a great plugin for assigning multiple K2 extra fields to K2 category. Beside that, it orders the extra fields value in alphabetically on both back-end and front-end which is easy to read. That helps to save time A LOT for us. Before we found this extension, when we need to add more value, which is not in an order, we need to delete the whole thing and start over because we want to display in order to help visitors find the information easily. I just had a small issue since I had too many plugins on my site, so it conflicted, and it was not working properly. However, The support was GREAT. The developer responded to the issue within a few hours. My issue has been fixed and we are happy with this product and support.

I am designing an industrial instrument shop center by k2. industrial instrument have different group of technical features. and some of the groups are common in some product categories. By MEFG I can assign multi extra filed group to each product category and most important is that i can put some common extra fields in one group and assign this group to all product category and then assign especial field group to each special category.

We're very happy to have come across this extension and its developer, the extension allows associate more than one extra field group to a K2 category and k2 item, this is very easy to set up - had it up and running in minutes.

Support is also great - the developer has been very helpful, gave us a great price for tweaks and customization as we needed to our specific needs, and was very fast on execution and delivery and has been a pleasure to work with!

Great work, if I was to decide I'd put this to be integrative part of K2 core! Simple to use, simple to understand, worked exactly as I was imagining it should before I installed.

An extension worth every dollar or € spent.

It took me one hour to get to know the extension - regarding categories and fields - and when you know what to do then the sky is the limit ..
The best feature is images instead of text ... usingthese for (Hotel site) language spoken (flags) services in hotel, starts of the hotel.

Support via forum was within few hours!

Best buy!!!!

I had problems with K2Story and this working and I got a lot of help and time dedicated to trying and figuring it out.

It doesn't really work for what I am trying to do because of not working with K2Story and I think for anyone that needs it that isn't using K2Story should download this simple and great extension.

I asked for a refund and was told I would receive all but 5 dollars back and with all the help I think that is so nice and amazing!

I have used K2 off and on for quite some time, recently we started including K2 on just about every site, some sites can have quite a few extra fields. One feature that K2 is missing is a way to manage all of these extra fields. That is where Multiple Extra Field Groups comes in.

This extension lets us assign only specific extra field groups to different categories which helps with client sites. It gives the end user a simpler interface to work with when adding K2 items.

Right now the extension works and works well, you do have to turn the Joomla error reporting to none or warnings will appear. Hopefully the author will get these details fixed.

We like this extension and excited to see how it will improve over time.
