What is K2?

The K2 content component is a powerful extension designed for using inside Joomla! which turns your website into a lean, mean, lightning fast, content creation machine. One of my favourite features of K2 is the fact that all media pertaining to each article is stored in an easy to find and central place making uploading, managing and removing new and old media to your articles a breeze. No more problems of lost media, wasted server space or messy media folders.
