I have just downloaded K2 BNR Content and installed on a Joomla 2.5 website in the hope to use to it for placing various Modules on my K2 Pages,
But I do not seem to understand how to fully active this task.
I do not understand how I can recall or connect my one or more modules to K2 BNR Content.
Could someone please explain or help me step by step what I should do to load one or more modules on my pages?

The key to working with K2 BNR Content is to remember that it ONLY works on K2 item detail pages. This is because it must have a K2 item ID to pull data from the database. This allows you put portions of the current K2 item you are viewing in different module positions throughout the page.
There are basically 2 ways to use this module - for a single K2 item page and for an entire K2 category.
For a single page it's pretty simple. Just create a menu item for the page, then add the module(s) and assign them to that menu item.
It's a little trickier to do it for a category because the module does not display on a category page. In this case the preferred method is to create a K2 Category menu item. Then using Advanced Module Manager, assign the module(s) to that menu item but make sure you set it to ONLY display on child items. If you use Advance Module Manager pro, then you can set the module to display by component - turn it on for K2, then select to only display on Item views.
