Hello randallf.

K2 is a component. It gets installed in your demo, so you should be able to use it without problems.

K2 | The powerful content extension for Joomla! developed by JoomlaWorks

It means you install it like any other extension/component. Through extension manager in your administration.

I am sure your Engineer shouldn't have any issues installing it.

That is the way it was installed!! Since you made it very apparent that it was a "Component" not an 'Extension' I thought it might install another way. The result is that when I make a new category in K2 it does not show up under any of the drop down menus under the modules.. like the yj10 slider or the yj8 slider... therefor is the reason we wondered if the template would support K2. So maybe we have some 'paramators' set up wrong? BTW we have a fresh load of 2.5.1 and the latest demo after it was updated a few days back... thought you might want to know that. Again Thanks in advance.. ~ R

You need to make a new menu item, choose K2 or K2 Category not sure, as menu item type and it will link you to the category. It won't appear by itself.

Thank you... I will do as you say. If you in 'fact' know this will work... and I'm sure it will or you would not have posted it... You may close this ticket... I'm sure the support team has 'much' to keep busy with. Again thank for your professionalism and fast reply! ~ R
