On a page displaying items from a K2 category, there is a large button at the top that reads "Add new item in this category". Clicking that button opens the K2 Edit Form, and it USED to have the default category pre-filled, but now the user has to choose the category themselves.

I have a feeling that this happened once before, and a php tweak was necessary to fix it, but I have searched and can't find anything.

I have tried different templates and different browsers, with same result, so I suspect it's a Joomla update which has changed this.

Anyone else having problems with this?

Check if you have an override for "itemform.php" inside /templates/YOUR_TEMPLATE/html/com_k2/default/.

If you do, delete that file and check again please.

Hi Fotis, thanks for reply.
When I first discovered the problem, there were no k2 overrides under MY_TEMPLATE. I then added them in an attempt to understand the problem, but have now removed them again. Problem is still there.
Even when I specify the default Joomla beez3 template (with no overrides), the same thing happens - the "K2 Add Item" form opens, but user has to select Category themselves.

I eventually solved this - I was using an out-of-date Joomla commercial template, and updating this to the most recent version solved the problem.
