We just upgraded to the latest version of K2. I am not unable to attach an image to an item using the "Image" tab in K2. I can go through the motions of attaching an image, but it never actually attaches. This is a big problem for the site I'm about to launch! Please help. Thanks.

Hi support,

First of all, when I am trying to create a new k2 item the publishing date is not populated automatically. This is the first time I noticed such an issue in a Joomla backend, as you can see in the screenshot below.

This issue begun when I upgraded to Joomla! 3.3.6.

Could anyone help me with this.

I read all the related items but cannot resolve the problem

Thanks in advance,

can't create k2 items 1 week 5 days ago

Hey there,

I am using Joomla 2.5.25 and K2 2.6.8. After upgrading from Joomla 1.5 using the component "SP upgrade" it is not possible to save new K2 items.
Existing ones can be edited.
The part "The following fields are required" are loading:

and nothing happens when clicking on "save". I posted this issue before, but somehow it got deleted when moving the site from to joomlaworks i guess...

Any ideas on how to fix this? We really need to add new...

On my website I'm using K2 for years and it was working perfect.
But recently I have refreshed our website, due to faulty upgrade from a third party.

Now I'm having problems with the attachements, which won't open anymore. I can download the files from
the map located on: media/k2/attachments/ and the downloads work fine.

But when I download from K2 you'll get the following:

k2 2.6.7 issues on Joomla 3.2 1 month 6 days ago

I am haveing a similar problem. the forum ref is #133889.

Not sure if its connected but k2 backend no longer works after joomla upgrade from 3.3.1 to 3.3.6. Dont want to have to look at moving all my articles and modules away from k2 to another component.

Really hope someone can help.

I have re installed with version 2.6.8 (I had 2.6.7). The same error remains. Luckely this is my test site. I cant upgrade my main site to j 3.3.6 until I know K2 works in the back end. It works fine in the front end but can not access it at all in the backend.
Hope you can help more.
08 Nov 2014 12:52
I have just upgraded from j 3.3.1 to 3.3.6. Everything else on site is fine but in the backend when I try to access K2 I get the following error:
Error loading component: com_k, Component not found
I have tried database fix.
I have tried discover in the extensions but I see nothing related to K2.
Please can you advise how to fix this as K2 no longer works at all in the back end.

First, to make things clear, K2 is compatible with PHP 5.3. The specific issue is probably caused by the specific build of PHP. There are several sites with PHP 5.3 where the media manager has no issues.

Regarding the performance usually things get better with new versions. PHP 5.4 is found to be a little slower than PHP 5.3 in some tests however it uses less memory than 5.3.

Finally note that according to the official PHP site the end of life of PHP 5.3 has reached and is recommended that...

I understand it's designed to work in the modal, but what changes do I need to make to change this? How can I implement it, or how much would the changes cost?
I understand the next version of K2 will be integrated into normal pages... is this going to be a simple upgrade, or will it totally mess up any existing template overrides? And any knowledge on when it may be released?
28 Oct 2014 16:13
Well, I've read about these sizes and this sounds idiotic to me. There is no option like "default" in the panel.

The guys at SP wrote to me that it isn't SP Upgrade for sure and I'd agree with it as articles, when shown in the panel, have images in normal width.

GOT IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It was
div.groupLeading div.itemBody img,
div.groupLeading div.userItemList img,
div.groupLeading div.catItemBody img,
div.groupLeading div.tagItemBody img,
div.groupPrimary div.itemBody img,...

K2 has specific options for images. You can set the desired width for each of 5 sizes that K2 supports in the K2 parameters. Then K2 will resize the image accordingly when you create a new item. However an upgrade extension may handle this on it's own way.

Re: Can't create new k2 articles 2 months 21 hours ago

Got this message from another support team for the module BT content slider... this should explain what the main problem is.. but then I don't know how it can be fixed:

I found out reason of the problem. There is 2 reasons
1. File /classes/k2.php is not updated it is old file. I updated it manual.
2. Your k2 items' and k2 categories' "language" field is null, this field must be "*" or "all" or your specify language.
I have seen this problem before, it is a problem of K2 component.

Re: Edit form Iframe stays open 2 months 5 days ago

I have a few published on each K2 item page:
1. Nextend Accordion Menu (responsive view)
2. Maxi-menu
3. SW K2 Tabs
4. DM Maps for K2
5. K2 Contact Revolution
6. BT Login
7. K2 Inceptive Multiple Extra fields

I have unpublished all (except BT Login obviously) but still no editing taking effect with the form. I tried the latest 2.7. dev build, the edit form does not display the extra fields correctly after the upgrade .. so i restored my site to just before i installed the latest dev build....

I've upgraded to Joomla 1.5.26 and also to the latest K2 Plug-in. Still the same issue. I've tried reinstalling K2 and now although that I've created new categories and Items, the drop down menu won't appear at all. I've also tried turning the cache on and off and that didn't help either. Do you happen to have any other suggestions? Thank you in advance!

Related or not with the Joomla upgrade, the upgrade is the trigger. I restored a backup before the update and it works. The moment I install 3.3.6 K2 stops working...

apologies for the delay. The solution I received from the Purity III forum is here: K2 item image missing

Solution summary:
1. Copy the k2.css file from /components/com_k2/css/k2.css to your /templates/purity_iii/css/k2.css
2. Upgrade class for a.modal
#k2Container a.modal {
        border: 0px;
        display: inline-block;
        margin: 0 10px 0 0;

Can't create new k2 articles 2 months 3 weeks ago

Hi there,

I am using K2 v2.6.8 and Joomla 2.5.24. After installing Joomla and K2, I also used the component "SP upgrade" to import K2 articles from the prior Joomla 1.5.
The display of the articles is perfect, the upgrade worked fine - but now I cannot create any new K2 item:

As you can see in the attached screenshot, there is this "Loading..." text, which doesn't get load. So I can add text in the editor below, but nothing happens when I try to save the...

Hello Krikor,

Thanks for this quick reply !

In fact I already checked the k2 extensions and I didn't see anything relevant (accepting one plugin to extend joomla users with extra field).
I already saw the readme of the beta3 of k2 with news features (it feels great!), but unfortunately, we cannot upgrade to joomla 3 for this project.

I guess I will have to write my own extension for k2 ?

Re: k2 Version 3 Questions 3 months 1 week ago

Sorry for the delay in my reply Krikor.

I love your idea of striping down K2's css. Although I did go commando on my main template, for K2 I was only overriding the css. But after your suggestion I had a look at k2.css and it does make sense to strip it down as well. This will prevent loading of unnecessary additional css that are not needed / used for my template. Also having my own css gives me full control over the sub-template and it could also make it a bit easier for V3 upgrade.

I am...

New to k2 - Help with Menu Manager 3 months 3 weeks ago

Hello -

I think I must be missing something very obvious but I have installed the k2 component on a joomla site (previously 1.5 that has been migrated and upgraded to joomla 3.3.) When trying to assign a k2 content module to a webpage, the only main menu options in the menu manager main menu are from the previous joomla articles and categories from the joomla 1.5 website. I don't understand if I am supposed to create a K2 main menu option in the menu manager somehow? If not what am I doing...

Re: Captcha not showing up 4 months 21 hours ago

I'm using Joomla 2.5.6 & K2 2.5.7
It won't work using your method.

If upgrade K2 to 2.6.5 (without modify the recaptcha.php file), it shows the two words correctly, but can't get reCaptcha to work with registering a new account.

Thank you Krikor. I had a look at both sh404ref as well as AceSEF. I am usually very picky when deciding to use a SEO component since a lot of times they can cause more trouble than they fix. Creating a custom plugin will not be the option for me. Also its extra work in creating and keeping it upto date during upgrades. So I might probably use K2's Advanced SEF I am thinking. I will get the caching enabled like your advised. Can I ask, do you know or have had experience with using K2's Advanced...

Re: k2 Version 3 Questions 4 months 1 week ago

That is great Krikor. Thank you so much for your response...

I hope the version 3 is released soon. I know the ETA is not a guarantee since it depends on the bugs reported and time it takes to fix them, etc... But when it gets out, it will take K2 experience to the next level and I am eager to have it on my production site.

My deadline for my project is November. So I might get everything set up in the current K2 version and upgrade to version 3 since it appears to be an easy upgrade. Also...
