Extension Specific, K2 extensions

K2 is an incredibly powerful and flexible extension that allows for stunning control of your Joomla! content. This module is based on the standard K2 content display module. Rather than display all items with a category/tag, this module displays content that is associated with the currently viewed K2 item.

This means that there is no need to create or modify a K2 template to be able to display item content differently. You can position selected K2 content in a module position rather than in the content area. The module supports multiple instance on a single page which means you can now display selected content wherever you want on the page.

  • Initial Release
Very useful module that effectively enables you to break free from the confines of the main content area when displaying K2 items.
Ease of use
Fairly straightforward, I have an earlier version and I believe the interface has been improved in version 3.x.
Developer has produced a user guide which covers all the basics.
Value for money
Not the cheapest module you'll ever purchase but given it can transform basic K2 items into something visually stimulating, I am happy.
I used this to: Using to make news and blog items look more exciting and give my website a high end feel.

K2 Fields anywhere!

Posted on 16 September 2014
I used this to put K2 fields within a K2 item. Like, in the middle of it. This was the only way I could do it. I didn't want them at the top or bottom, so I put in a load module command in the content and set split content to the module position Worked like a charm! I only wanted the k2 items but there are heaps of options. You can basically put k2 info anywhere. Had a couple of questions and got great, and quick support too.
Owner's reply: Thanks for the review! Great to hear that it helped you out.
