K2 to Content Migration

K2 is a popular extension of Joomla. It always tops the list of most loved apps on versions J1.5, 2.5 and 3.

However, they still don't have a roadmap for Joomla 4 which is why you have to go back to Joomla Content, the default built-in extension on Joomla.

This tool makes it possible for you to migrate K2 articles to Joomla Content. Thereby, you can upgrade your website to Joomla 4.

It is designed for ease of use. Note because K2 is not available on Joomla 4, so you only use this tool for Joomla 3.

Imported data includes:

  • All K2 Articles + Intro Image
  • All K2 Categories
  • All K2 tags
  • All K2 Extra Fields

After installing this tool, go to Components > K2 to Content to get started.

Wait for the tool to notify you that the import is finished.

      @ruudj Hi!All images are saved in the folder "images/k2". It will link to the intro or full image of the article when migrated.

      @David Hi David just executed the migration, articles and categories look fine - but where do the images go?? Don't see them in the database either? How to link or embed the K2 image (stored under media\k2\items\cache) to the articles!

    Hi David - I just sent you an email. Your plug-in did not work properly. None of the articles are in the categories. I have about 800 articles and 117 categories. This is not helpful. Can you assist?

    Hi, after importing with version 1.1.7 my articles' IDs got inverted (older ones got higher IDs, newer ones lower IDs, e.g. last article got ID 1). Is it possible to have the newer ones with higher IDs? (Ideal solution would be the same IDs as in K2, but don't know if it's possible).
    Thanks and regards,

    How it is working? Is there some settings, like category k2 to content mapping? What about tags and custom fileds?
