Joomla! Extensions Directory



Extension Specific, JCE extensions

Brought to you by Akeeba Backup's lead developer, the K2 Links for Advanced Link allows you to use JCE's advanced link feature in order to seamlessly link to K2 content items. A short list of features:
- Integrates into JCE's Advanced Link (AdvLink) window - that's what you get with the "Insert Link..." command you get with the right-click popup or the link icon with green cross on JCE's toolbar ;)
- You can toggle it on/off for certain users, just like any other AdvLink extension.
- Displays K2 categories as a drill-down tree, no limits on level depth.
- If a K2 category contains not only items but children categories too, it displays both.
- Intelligently includes the correct Itemid on linked items. Don't let Google think you've got duplicate content on your site, right?
- Link to K2 Tags (NEW!)
- View and link to K2 items belonging to a specific K2 tag (NEW!)

  • Get this

IMPORTANT: Version 2.x is only compatible with JCE 2.x. The previous version of the plugin (1.0) for JCE 1.5.x is no longer supported.

It works like a charm! Simply read the instructions and refresh the browser to update javascripts and stuff. Simple, easy and useful

Excellent Extension

Just Thank you for this plugin. I love Joomla and K2. Of course, I need JCE Editor because it makes my life easier. This plugin is all you need for advanced links in K2.

Good job!

Don't forget!

Install first JCE Editor 2.x, then in JCE Administration panel, click on Install Add-ons, to install the plugin.

I've been using this for years and it's a fantastic plugin. Really makes life easier for me, and my clients. I've never needed to seek support, as it just works!

A great plugin from the lead developer of Akeeba!

Theres a handful of extensions and plugins I always install when starting a new Joomla site, this is now on that list!

I cant believe I only just found it!

Brilliant work Nic!

Does what it says, and it's free, which is why I choose Joomla! and open source to begin with. Now, I just need more experience using K2 :).

Works exactly as expected. Easy to install. Easy to use. You can link to K2 items and tags from the Advanced Link Manager in JCE 2.

Good job Nikos! Thanks for sharing this helpful plugin with us :)

This makes K2/JCE work together by allowing you to build links within JCE to K2 content items.

Thanks for creating it!

Akeeba Backup Core is an open-source backup component for the Joomla! CMS, quite a bit different than its competition. Its mission is simple: create a site backup that can be restored on any Joomla!-capable server. Its possibilities: endless. It creates a full backup of your site in a single archive. The archive contains all the files, a database snapshot and an installer similar in function to the standard Joomla! installer. The backup and restore process is AJAX powered to avoid server timeouts, even with huge sites. Alternatively, you can make a backup of only your database, or only your files.

Akeeba Release System

Akeeba Release System (ARS) is a file repository / download system quite different than its competition. It is primarily focused on software dissemination, but can also be used as a generic download component. Its main differences to its competition are speed, stability, perfect URLs without a SEF component, generation of update streams, ease of use, Chameleon skinning and time saving features implemented along the board. We use it for our own downloads section. In fact, before its first public beta it had already served over a million downloads. In a nutshell: Performance - ARS is designed to handle massive amounts of data. Tested with hundreds of download items and hundreds of thousands of log records, it groks through this vast amount of data in a heartbeat. Intelligent caching makes it blazing fast. Bootstrap - ARS seamlessly integrates with the Boostrap styling upon which Joomla! 3 is standardised. It includes its own copy of Bootstrap, used only on Joomla! 2.5. Control Freak - Control who can download what. ARS integrates with Akeeba Subscriptions, PayPlans and Joomla! View Access Levels to fine-tune who can view and download anything. Perfect Logs - ARS will log who downloaded what and when, or even who tried but failed. IP addresses, HTTP referrers and country statistics are all logged and can be used to filter the log display. The Control Panel offers a bird's eye view of how well your downloads are doing. Attention to detail - Minute details make the big difference. From copied items defaulting to being unpublished and files you've already used being hidden from file selection drop-downs and from automatically naming and describing your files to zero-click file publishing, ARS has got you covered. Updates galore - ARS can automatically create update streams in multiple formats. INI format which can easily be used from any software. Joomla! XML format for extremely easy updates of the extensions you create. Amazon S3 Support - Store your downloads on Amazon S3. Integrated S3 file browser and ability to upload directly to S3! Experience the future in download components. Install and use Akeeba Release System. It's completely free of charge. Note: The software is free of charge, its support is not. You need a valid subscription to request support. However, its documentation, the troubleshooting wizard and searching the public tickets is free.
