This template provides additional styles for K2 from JoomlaWorks. This very popular extension gives you additional means to control and create content. You are free to use this template without K2, but we have done the extra work to style K2 to fit the whole theme. Here is an excerpt about K2 and what it can do for you.

 

"It provides an out-of-the box integrated solution featuring rich content forms for items (think of Joomla! articles with additional fields for article images, videos, image galleries and attachments), nested-level categories, tags, comments, a system to extend the item base form with additional fields (similar to CCK for those acquainted with Drupal), a powerful plugin API to extend item, category and user forms, ACL, frontend editing, sub-templates and a lot more!

Using K2, you can transform your Joomla! website to a news/magazine site with author blogs, product catalogs, work portfolio, knowledge base, download/document manager, directory listing, event listing and more, all this bundled under one package! Since K2 is extensible with additional fields to its base item form, you can easily create category-specific content types, e.g. article, blog post, product page, directory listing."

Here is a list of some of its features:

Using Shop Ignition and K2

If you use a quickstart package, then K2 will be installed and the demo content will have the overrides enabled by default. However, you have to assign the template by editing the category or the menu item linking to K2. We provide support for anything specific to the template overrides in Shop Ignition.

K2 has a growing community of users and places to get help. The first place you might want to check out is the K2 Community. There you will find a lively community that may have already answered your questions, and can help pinpoint new issues.
