Joomla! Extensions Directory



Extension Specific, K2 extensions

With this component you can import content into K2 from a CSV-file and export your K2 data to a CSV file.

  • Get this

This is not a good component for regular backups. It's much better to backup the database directly! Use this extension for transferring items to/from K2, mass updates in K2 and so on, but do not relay on it as your only backup.

- the version 1.x is for Joomla 1.5 /1.6 / 1.7 / 2.5
- the version 2.x is for Joomla 3.x

NEW in version 2.3:
- Import/Export category images
- path for images/gallery images/category images/attachments can be anywhere on the server, does not need to be under the joomla folder
- images/gallery images/category images/attachments can be imported from an URL

The import and export works for nearly all standard K2 fields. Images are exported as path to the file. The hierarchy of the categories is not exported or imported.

Try an export first to have a example file and check the documentation.

Check the documentation link for an example CSV-file or use the export function first and change the file.

Costs: You decide yourself how much you like to pay for the plugin (min 1,79 EUR)

I had to import hundreds of tables from excel to k2. I did it in minutes. It works perfectly, even with extra fields. Totally recommended! Thank you Artur :)

Does the Job and Great Support

This extension was a real time saver. I had hundreds of tags to import and did not want to do it by hand. The support is responsive and you definitely can't beat the price. I highly recommend this extension. Thank you!

It is very intuitive, you just make an export first, then you fill your data in the columns and you import. Works like a charm! Keep the good work up.

No K2 without import

Posted on 13 February 2014

Without proper import, K2 is nearly useless for me. No fun, adding a hundred articles manually. Much more fun with this extension. It's not super easy to use, many parameters to set, and to get the import file right isn't straightforward either, when the data is a bit complex. But most importantly, once it's all set, imports work fine. And support is very good, too.

As a Joomla Programmer since 2008, I've dealt with a lot. SOBI2 was my choice for Directory databases but SOBIPro for Joomla 2.5 has given me nothing but headaches because of the slow release of necessary tools that were available for SOBI2. This Import Tool for K2 gave me the capability I needed to make business directories with K2 far superior to SOBI Pro and upset for paying constant subscriptions to their site when all I needed to pay was 2 Euros!!!! Like seriously??? Good work done here and keep it up!!!!

Good extension

This extension helped me to convert my jReviews articles to K2 articles. My main problem was with the images and videos but with a lot of trial and error I was able to do the conversion. Without this extension I would have still be converting my articles.

When converting our music magazine from an ordinary php site with a mysql database to Joomla 2.5, we used import for K2 to import over 10.000 articles.

We had to edit our old article database structure to fit extra fields In K2 before using Import for K2.

The proses of editing the database was easy, after studying an export of a K2 item using Import for K2.

The proses of importing all our articles where complete after 2 hours of work. Which is an unbelievable time saver considering that it took approximately 5-6 minutes to copy / past one articles by hand.

You do the math. ;)

Not all is this extension easy to use, but you also decide what it will cost you.

The only negative thing I can say about this extension is that we had a little problem importing our images, but if you are a bit creative, you can also solve this problem yourself. However, I was aware of this problem before buying the extension.

This extension helped me big times to transfer data from sobi2 to a new K2 version of a restaurant guide I'm building. I have many extra fields which were checked by the application during import.

For instance, the component will tell you if your CSV has values for a drop-down field that do not match the available options for that drop-down in K2.



I work on Mac and I realized that Excel creates CSV files that are not UTF8 and the new line character is Classic Mac (CR). I had to convert the TXT to UTF8 with Windows (CRLF) end-of-line character to be able to use the CSV with this component. I used TextWrangler to do that. The component failed whenever I tried to upload a CSV with Mac (CR) end-of-lines.

Thank you again for this component, great job !!!
