Joomla is a powerful content management system and the best in the open source category. Its used by many web developers to create a website in the shortest possible time with great features. K2 is a  powerful content component which has achieved phenomenal success and acceptance among the Joomla developers in one year of its launch. Front end submission of the articles has been a problem with this module. I’ll be writing a small tweak which will enable the front submission of the articles by the authors without logging into the backend.

Follow these simple steps :
1. Admin Login >> component >> K2
2. Click on users Tab and then individually click on the particular users and assign them to author category and save the page.
3. Go to parameters on the right top of the page and enable the front end submission option and save it.
4. Go to menu and create a new external url link type.
5. Paste  http:www.example.com/?option=com_k2&view=item&task=add&tmpl=component and save.
6. Thats it !!!
