Creating a Category

Previously in Joomla, dealing with "Categories" and "Sections" could become a real mess. Fortunately K2 has made dealing with Categories a much simpler task. You can think of categories as a filing cabinet. Perhaps you might wish to group together all your K2 items (articles) corresponding to their relevent subject matter. For instance, all articles pertaining to cats may be assigned to the "Cats" category, whilst all articles pertaining to dogs would similarly be assigned to the "Dogs" category.

Manually Starting a Backup Process

It is a good idea to manually invoke the backup process on the intranet when ever possible to make sure that recent backups are taking place.

In the main control panel area of the website is a backup alert icon.

If the icon states that a backup is required then you will be required to click on the icon and start the backup process.
