How can I make a page display only the categories? Just as they do on the front page of K2 demo site.
Because now I can't show only categories. If I deselect all, the last active get set as the category to use.

Don't mean to bump. But can this be replicated? Very vital, since I plan on change to K2 from JoomSuite. And I need category-view to be displayed first. And not a single category.

Maybe add a new menu list item to choose from. Where we can see all the categories, and not items.

I've been trying for a few hours. I've got sub categories to show up, but the demo front page almost looks like a section layout. Any insight would be greatly appreciated.

Positive that the layout used in the demo is not included in the public release.

We have replicated it but it entails digging into the php and tweaking the css.

Set up a top level category. (in version 1 you could utilize a top level template. Here we have found you have to fake it) Assign your subcategories to the top level parent. There are other posts that tell you how to do this.

In the default php view (around line 60) delete the echo subcategories line.

You then have to make the title linkable. Strangely, the image is href'd to the subcategory, but the title is not. You have to add your own href tag. I would think a lot of these things will be made optional in future releases. We are making good notes on what we change so that we can upgrade.

In the css you have to create your own css in order to mimic the boxes around the subcategories.

Thanks

No need to edit css OR php...

Just add a pagebreak for each article to link up titles and for the rest...
