    A leap of faith rewarded
    My project is important and complex. My website raises awareness of human trafficking. It gets visitors from all over the world. Right now I am woking on the second version of the site.

    I decided to use Inceptive Design Labs' Multiple Categories for K2 and this was a big help. However I need more functionality. I needed K2 Content items to be able to read the K2 categories used by Inceptive Design Labs. I needed custom work.

    I took a leap of faith and it was rewarded. My project was understood from the very first message. It was actioned straight away and the result if exactly what I wanted.

    I wouldn't hesitate to use this company and I have to give them my highest recommendation!

    I recommend anyone to use this product. It was simple to install and pretty much worked straight away. I did have a small issue with tags but that was fixed within minutes of contacting customer support. Brilliant product, brilliant support.

    Beside the fact the extension exactly does what it says, service is good and very fast.
    I experienced a problem with folder rights, problem was solved by the developer within a few hours.
    Well programmed, nice and clear interface and good interaction with K2.

    I have been looking for this K2 feature for a long time and purchased the product. It was installed within a few minutes and does exactly what it is supposed to do and greatly enhances the K2 capabilities.

    I have a little configuration issue but the support from Konstantinos was excellent.

    All works fine now.

    I can highly recommend this product and the support.

    I recently had to create a website where I needed to save my K2 Items to more than one category.

    The Inceptive Multiple Categories for K2 allowed me to achieve just that.

    When you save an item you must select the top level category to save the Item to as you would usually. Once you have installed the extension you will see an extra tab called 'Inceptive Multiple Categories for K2' which allows you to assign the Item to additional categories when editing the Item.

    The only real downside is that when you view the Item list (without selecting a specific category) in the backend you can only see the Items parent category under the category column and not any other assigned categories.

    That said - If I have saved an Item to Category A and Category B, I can view that same Item when I select to only view Items in those chosen categories.

    I have found the extension to work well and I am more than happy with it. I think this type of functionality should be part of the K2 component anyway.

    Good job.
