What is K2?
K2 is a content construction component, which lets you create custom content types (items) for
your Joomla! Website.
It's like core Joomla! articles thrown into the mixer with Drupal's CCK and Wordpress
What can I do with K2?
K2 can transform your Joomla! website into:
a news site with author blogs product catalog work portfolio knowledge base download/document manager directory listing event listing
and more... all bundled under one component!
Basic K2 features (1/2)
nested-level categories comments system tags "extra fields" system to extend item elements
(a la CCK) distinct item image per item distinct item image gallery distinct item video attachments
Basic K2 features (2/2)
user profiles/blogs versatile ACL system ajax-based front-end editing powerful plugin system to extend item,
category and user forms
1. Joomla! has been far behind other competing CMSs like Drupal and WordPress in terms of social features and flexibility (categorization, ACL, expansion etc.)
2. Joomla! 1.0 and 1.5 are practically the same in features for the end-user
3. Slow development cycle for Joomla! - which further strengthens point 1.
