Known issues:

  • sh404sef compatibility:

If you use sh404sef at your website, you need to add new condition in components\com_k2\sef_ext\com_k2.php

Find the following block :

case 'search' :
$title[] = 'search';
if (!empty($searchword))
$title[] = $searchword;
break;

And place new block after it:

case 'filter' :
$title[] = 'filter';
if (!empty($searchword))
$title[] = $searchword;
break;

Then you may need to clear cache and re-enable sef.
