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.

  • Favourite
  • Report

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 2.6:
- compatible with K2 2.8.0

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)

Mit dieser Erweiterung können Inhalte per CSV-Datei direkt in K2 importiert oder aus K2 exportiert werden.

Diese Erweiterung eignet sich nicht für regelmäßige Sicherungen. Es ist viel besser die Datenbank direkt zu sichern. Sie können diese Erweiterung benutzen um massenweise Daten nach und von K2 zu transferieren, viele K2 Einträge auf einmal zu bearbeiten, aber Sie sollten sich nicht auf dieses Tool als Ihr einziges Backup verlassen!


  • Die Version 1.x ist für Joomla 1.5 bis 2.x
  • Die Version 2.x ist für Joomla 3.x

Es können alle std. Felder, fast alle "Extra Felder", BenutzerIDs, Bilder, Tags, Galerien, Meta Informationen, Kategorien und Anhänge importiert werden.

Es werden fast alle Standard K2 Felder exportiert. Bilder werden als Pfadangabe exportiert. Die Hierarchie der Kategorien wird NICHT exportiert oder importiert.

NEU in Version 2.6:
- arbeitet mit K2 2.8.0 zusammen


  • PHP 5 >= 5.2.0 mit PECL json >= 1.2.0
  • Joomla 1.5.x / 1.6.x / 1.7.x / 2.5.x / 3.x
  • K2 >=2.6.8 (wenn Sie eine ältere Version benutzen, bitte erst K2 updaten)

Die Erweiterung muss gekauft werden aber du bestimmst selbst wie viel es wert ist. Es müssen jedoch mindestens 1,80€ überwiesen werden.
Für jeden bezahlten Euro bekommst du die Möglichkeit 10 Tage lang Updates herunterzuladen. D.h. um einen Monat Updates herunterzuladen zahle min. 3EUR.

IMPORT FOR K2 Extension work fine with my joomla 2.5 sites, recommend to buy this cool tool...

BAdly needed extension!

Posted on 15 January 2013
This was needed very badly for a long time, the install is painless. The component itself is not the easiest in the world to understand and took a few attempts to bring the data across as I wanted it but in the end it did the job great and saved me a lot of time, I had some questions and Artur always came back within a reply. Not for a novice but great component none the less!

Where is the support?

Posted on 18 November 2012
Hi, its nice Idea and its make me paid @ time to have it.

When I install and try to import I have Fatal error

So I try to click the support link, but it diverted me to K2 official forum with no permission to view the post :(

So I was wondering why we pay and face problem with the support?

Now, I paid and have error and will never use the extension cos I dont know where to ask support :(

Owner's reply: Sorry there was a problem in the link, I just corrected it.

Its a great Extension.I could successfully import all the items and their categories from joomla 1.5 site to joomla 2.5.6 ,with great ease.I faced no issues.Great work!!
Initially I had little difficulty in importing k2 items but the Developer helped me out. And now it works like a charm.
I needed to transfer fairly complicated K2 content (many extra fields, etc) from a Joomla 1.5 site to a 2.5 site.

After trying a couple of other extensions without much luck, I decided to give IT Import for K2 a try. It worked amazing well!

From reading the documentation on the website, I thought it was going to be a challenge to map the various fields, but that was not the case. It was very intuitive and extremely easy.

Great extension! Thanks!
I used this extension to import some articles from a previos Joomla installation (1.5 to 1.7) And this helped me was a major time savor.

Thanks alot and keep up the good work!
This extension is a true time saver. I had an issue importing my data and the developer helped me get everything imported correctly...even though it turned out to be an issue with how I had formatted my csv file.

great extension .

Too buggy

Posted on 10 February 2012
Will be great extension in the future. Right now: 0.8-not working, 0.9 - bugs, bugs, and bugs again (system: J1.7/HostGator). Paid 2 EURO for development support. Waiting for release.
Owner's reply: Hi,
0.8 is just for joomla 1.5
0.9 should work with joomla 1.5 and newer but it is in alpha status right now, sorry yes its still buggy.
It would be useful to know what problems you have exactly. Please send me an email via web form:

I'm also happy to send your money back if the software is not useful for you.
