As you already know, I am a big fan of Ryan Demmer's JCE (Joomla! Content Editor). It's the one and only editor installed on all of my sites. I am also using Nuevvo/JoomlaWork's K2 CCK extension. It's what powers this blog as well pretty much every other site I have ever and will ever build. Almost two years ago, I had written a nifty AdvLink plugin which enabled JCE 1.5.x to link to K2 categories and articles. Now that JCE 2.0 is being released, that plugin ceased to work. Guess what? I rewrote it and put it on steroids!
IMPORTANT: THIS PLUGIN IS NO LONGER DEVELOPED OR SUPPORTED. The information in this post reflects my opinion in June 2011. That was several years ago.
Ladies and gentlemen, it's my pleasure to present you with K2 Links for Advanced Link, version 2.0 2.1 2.2!
This version is compatible with JCE 2.3 or later and K2 2.5 or later. Its features:
- Link to K2 Categories

- View and link to K2 items belonging to a specific K2 tag NEW!
Download the plugin. (Version 2.2 - Updated 31 Jan 2013) - THE PLUGIN IS NO LONGER DEVELOPED OR SUPPORTED. USE AT YOUR OWN RISK.

Support and feature requests
THIS PLUGIN IS NO LONGER DEVELOPED OR SUPPORTED. I have stopped using K2 in 2012 and I no longer have any reason to keep developing this plugin. Please do not ask for support, you will simply be ignored. This plugin was last developed on Joomla! 2.5 and 3.0. I have no idea if it works on newer versions of Joomla!. It certainly doesn't work on older versions. If it doesn't work, too bad. Feel free to fork it and develop it further if you feel so inclined.
