K2 specific settings

K2 is the ideal solution for managing your content, regardless of site “size”: you can use it from a small blog to a complex corporate site or even a multi-author environment (portals, magazines etc.). To provide a practical example, using K2, you can transform your Joomla! website to a news/magazine site with author blogs, product catalogs, work portfolio, knowledge base, download/document manager, directory listing, event listing and more. Accordion Menu for K2 extends the main features of K2 and give you the power to create great menus from K2 categories and items.
