Hi,
I've installed Additional categories for k2, but when I assign an additional category to an item, it is not shown in the additional category page.

Joomla 3.9.18
K2: v2.10.3
php: 7.3.18

Pls advice
Chris

What you're using is a deprecated/abandoned extension.

I highly recommend this one www.web357.com/product/multiple-categories-for-k2-joomla-plugin which is actively developed & can even assist in migrating from "Additional Categories for K2".

@Franz Chris is referring to a 3rd party extension (which is no longer supported) to allow multi-categorization. It's not related to the catalog mode in K2 or anything.

@Fotis. Im using this plugin with the newest k2 version. At it just works in the catalog mode. You have to edit the k2 files to display the "K2_Published_In" of the additional categories.

But youre right, they dont work on the plugin anymore. And its not working when you use the k2_content module and loadmodule. Than youll just get the main categories, not the additional ones.

But sooner or later ill switch to the plugin you recommended.

Question: Are you going to extend the category assignement (multiple) in the core version? I think its quite usefull to assign a item in multiple categories.

EDIT: Works with the router_2.10.2.php too. Tested it

No, there is no plan to add multi-categorization in K2.
