Hi Daniel,
I use K2 items all over my website succesfully. Adding a K2 item adds a hotspot too. However I would like to use it the other way around.
As the hotspots form has way better user experience, I prefer on using it to add new hotspots instead of the K2 frontend form.
Could you give me hint where I can add code(UPDATE Query) that adds title, description, address, lat, lng, etc. also to the K2 database table?
thanks,

We are triggerin an event onHotspotSaved I think (look at the hotspot - email plugin) . You can use this event to save the data in k2, but you should not forget to also populate the #__marker_mappings table. Otherwise you won't know when to update a k2 entry and when to create a new k2 entry.

Regards,
Daniel
