Hello,

I have purchased the component and I have successfully tested it.

I want to build a directory using K2 in two languages (Greek (primary) and English).

I am using the following fields in K2:
Title, Category, Image, Item description, tag1, …, tag n, extra field 1, … , extra field n

I have made the translation of all the K2 field names in English using Joomfish.

When I use your component only the data for the primary language (greek) are inserted in K2. Is it feasible to use different CSVs (one for each language) so I will not insert manually the translation in Joomfish (now for each item I have to go to Joomfish, K2 items and edit the translated field contents manually. This is time consuming since I have more than 2000 items !).

Any ideas ?

I am using
Joomla v1.5.25
Joomfish v2.1.3
K2 v2.5.7
K2 import / export v0.9 stable


Thanks in advance.

Hi,
sorry the extension just import items into K2, not Joomfish - this is an other extension.

Hi man!
i've just bought the component (transaction id 7E279573T9850502) but i need help because i'm going to import a lot of articles that contain "," so i'm encountering problem with component delimiter.

Is it possible to change the delimiter with something else? (for example ||)

thanks a lot!

Text has to be included between " " then a , is also no problem

Should look like:

"Title","Alias","Introtext"
"Title Article1","alias-title-article1","Example with a lot of ,,, but this does not make Problems and even "" are fine if there are double "" Introtext"

You can also just make an export to have an example.

first create the extra field in K2, associate it with a group and greate 2 or 3 items in this group with the different possible extra field values.
The make an export with the k2 import / export tool and you have an example file you can work with,

As its says in the description the tool can import images but not export them. The reason is the way K2 stores them.
