Introduction

Editors

The ARK Editor (formally known as the JCK Editor) is an WYSIWYG editor designed to simplify your content creation. It incorporates a new technology called Inline Editing that allows its users to edit page elements directly without the need to use a special editing screen. For this reason it can transform Joomla sites and make them incredibly easy-to-use!

Its user familiar due to its modern Windows Metro like interface yet configurable enough to be used for enterprise developments. Allowing for customisation and shaping in virtually any direction. This could be from creating bespoke toolbars to adding functionality with new plugins, content templating and typography and with the setting up of user permissions and user folders.

It's licenced under the General Public License and aims to be a community resource that embodies the Joomla project and its values.

The interface is cut-down and uncluttered, but underneath is everything you need, and huge configurability.

Ease of use

We had a problem with editors being unsuitable for IT-shy users. Now they can see what they want where they want it! Really excellent!

Support

Amazing! We're a charity and so had the free version, but still received replies to a query. They are so helpful, & online docs are great.

Documentation

There is full documentation that answers almost all questions and walks you through the basics. And the tech support answers are available.

I used this to: We have a large community of volunteers and folk with little IT confidence need to edit articles. They were always put off by the complexity of other editors. But with this they can edit in-line, and the editor uses the styles of the template so that they get what they entered.

Does exactly what the developer describes.

Ease of use

Easy to use. Amazing editor & Love the layout. Well done

Owner's reply: Dear Maximilian, thank you for your review. We are always keen to listen to our users so if you have some ideas for new functionality please let us know? In fact we have created a forum especially for new feature requests, please see: http://arkextensions.com/feature-requests. Thanks again.

Functionality

Resizing images is a very basic and needed function, that is missing here. JCE does better in other cases (link functionality), too

Ease of use

very easy and beautiful to use if you do not care about missing functions

Support

You have to pay for support, hence no support at all for the free version, which is reviewed here.

Documentation

Some docs are available, but didn't need any. Everything is self explanatory.

I used this to: nearly all my websites. but had to remove it and go back to jce again because of missing functions. :(

Missing the basics

This is a very good editor but unfortunately I am returning to the trusty JCE because you cannot resize images (which infuriating to use)

Ease of use

I had no problems but people with less experience might be overwhelmed 70+ plugins.


just wonderful!

It’s extremely easy to use and doesn’t require the user to handcode HTML in their Joomla editor! In theory it can work anywhere, in any component, module, content item etc… in fact wherever the editor can go, it can go! It works to take the hassle out of building, managing, and linking to external content. The user only needs to paste the 'URL' into the URL dialog box, set height and width and you’re – done! However, for those who would like to take it further users can opt to Enable Scrollbars, Show iframe Border, Advisory Title, apply id or CSS styles or even write your code inline! ★ IMPORTANT NOTE: From Joomla! 1.5.8+ a default article filtering choice was set in place for those who have not enabled the appropriate filter options. If your user group is blacklisted the iframe tags will be stripped away when saving to the database. Please see http://www.joomlackeditor.com/installation-guide?start=8 on how to setup and configure your system. ★ INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS: Please see: http://www.joomlackeditor.com/installation-guide?start=10

Insert HTML launches the ability to insert segments of HTML code and places it into the page at the cursor location, without having to switch to Source mode! This is especially useful when you need to paste a Paypal button or a Social bookmark into your code, or even when you need to update a segment of code half way down your article. ★ NEW: It nows comes with a syntax highlighter which works to beautifully colours your code! ★ Installation instructions: Please see: http://www.joomlackeditor.com/installation-guide?start=10
