Hi there, I'm stuck
I'm new to joomla and using joomla 3.3.1 and latest k2 (2.6.8) I tried to setup the kiji_menu with entries from categories.
I setup a main menu and chose k2>category listings, within options I chose the related categories. Trying so I do only get the k2 listings within component but not the categories within the menu.

your help is very much appreciated, thanks Peer

Hello Peer,

I am not quite sure I understand you.
If you created a menu item towards many categories, then in that view you will see items from all these categories.

Dear Krikor,

I want to create the vertical menu, therefore I created a menu, menu type > k2 > categories, within "options" I chose the relevant categories and hit save.
Menu module is set to show only the first level of the categories.
Therefore I thought that all first level categorienames would appear. Instead i do get all content in the compontent with the display settings from the k2 categories.

Is it possible to chosse the category-list for a menu? If yes, how to setup the kiji_menu linking to categories.

many thanks

So far so good. Now I am sorry if I am just aksing the obvious?
You did make each K2 category a separate menu item?

You need to do this.
One menu item per category. Not one menu item pointing to all categories, this will never work (regardless of the template).

good to know :-)
in the meantime I build up the mega_menu and the hero_menu.
my problem at that point is that the mega_menu doesn't flout on the left side, horizontically it is now before hero_menu. Shouldn't it come right away on the left side? What am I doing wrong?
please see picture below.

many thanks
