Joomla K2 has a nice Quick Icons Module for the administrator side. You can simply login to your Joomla admin and access all the K2 features right from the administrator front page only. You can add, edit, delete, view all items, change configuration, view categories, etc right from that menu. Most of the this quick icons dont come up or may be never configured. So, if you dont see it, there is always a way to get it back.
While doing our blog in K2, we found a weird thing. On the item details view of a category, the intro text has different style. I looked through all the configuration and options, but did not find any such special option , which was pushing that intro text to a different style.
