I'm using Joomla's K2 content component. There's a bunch of reasons we're using it, but one is to provide a nice way for the client to attach files to some of their articles. This works really well and the client is very happy with it.
However, they have also now asked if they can have an "attachment" which is actually a link to a file on an external site. The external site is a partner organisation that provides some of their documents; they want to hot link directly to the partner's files because the files are updated fairly often, and they don't want the overhead of having to re-load them every time.
This request is, of course, quite easy to achieve if I just add a link directly in the article text, but the client would like it if the items were listed as K2 attachments in the same way as they currently do for their internal files.
So is it possible to have external files as K2 attachments? Or will I just have to use plain old links?
