Usually, in category item view, image links to item.
Is there a way to link item image with external URL?
i`ve tried adding a custom extra field called "link", and then editing category_item.php, so the URL would become link extra field value...

I`m very weak with php, so I didn`t succeed...

Is there a simpler way (with some plugin), or can anybody help me with php?

Not without changing code in k3 K2 ( ;) ) template for category view item. Search on forum for info about 'overides' and I'm afraid you need to learn some PHP basics.

K3???? :D

Milos:

Another option is to use the image in the article body as introtext. Then you can link the image to an external url.

K2 Rocks \m/

I can get an category-image-id item to show up for each category object in the JSON, but its value is 0 TellDunkin .

The solution is rather simple.

Create an extra field to use for the custom link.

Then do some category_item.php and item.php overriding and change existing links to utilize the extra field URL.

Here's how you display/call a single extra field: getk2.org/documentation/tips-a-tricks/2667-display-single-extra-fields-anywhere-in-your-k2-content
