You can try this bellow procedure:

step 1: Copy the k2 components (components->com_k2)

step 2: Paste (templates->'your templates'-> inner html folder)

step 3: Open (templates->'your templates'-> html -> com_k2) folder and delete all file except templates folder

step 4: Open (templates->'your templates'-> html -> com_k2->templates) folder and copy default & paste here with rename (suppose 'stackoverflow') this folder wish you want.

    Note: if you want more layout then follow this procedure.  

step 5: Now you can edit your layout according to your desired.

step 6: Now you have to go Menu manager & create new menu where you can see Menu Item Type and select k2-> your choice. Then next options-> "Select a template" where you create 'stackoverflow'

  • I have followed the mentioned step 6 but I was not successfull after selecting the template in K2 category option and it is working fine no need to choose the template in menu option. For example: Components -> K2 -> Categories -> yourcategory and in category layout option select the created template from drop down.
