Includes advanced Image/Media, File and Link handling, plugin support, and an Administration interface for editor configuration.
It's also a real time saver for administrators. It has so many formatting functions built in there is little need for custom HTML.
Five stars is not high enough, I would give JCE ten stars if I could...
I make the good choice with JCE.
1— Excellent support
2— You can go with a free , more basic Editor
3— Or in my case go for the paying extensions to have a professional Editor with all the bells and wistles that you need.
Main features for me is the ability to have one set of tools (of your choice) to one user/authors or type of users and the possibility to assign folders to editors/authors.
And so far, I have more possibilities, compare to my other editor.
If setting a custom player in the media settings is an option, then more documentation need to be available to explain how to do so. Also how to extend the external video sources to include more than youtube, google and metacafe only videos, such as screencast. but overall, this is a great component.
Extensive Media Manager improvements will be made in JCE 2.0 which will be out early next year.
Issues with the Joomla! Readmore, Pagebreak and other 3rd party buttons were fixed in 1.5.6
The only problems that ever arise from this editor are always browser based; I'm positive that it's browser issues for all other non 5 star reviews for this editor. (Firefox is such a buggy browser now that most people use IE, Safari, or Chrome when editing the site even if they're Firefox fans - Opera also has issues with many Joomla editors).
Thank you very much for providing such a great extension for Joomla!
I have only one micro complaint, that the new windows, like to add a link, take a while to load. But that is a micro issue and this is still the greatest editor.
To be honest, it took me longer to register to post this comment than to install JCE!
The only thing that I can't find (which may be there) is the ability to crop or resize an image which is present in the commercial version of TinyMCE through the image manager. But then you have to pay for this.
This is, without doubt, a fantastic addition.
The problem is that when in installed it on MY system, I wouldn't edit the content of the articles using the editor- it was like the editor was frozen and I couldnt do anything with it...i was able to edit the article only when i selected the html code option through "show/hide"..but what is the point when this is a WYSIWYG editor?
Anyways i didn't have the patient to try it more at the moment, or the time so i uninstalled it.
Probably I will try it again in the future and see how it goes...
One last comment - the fact that didn't work for me doesnt mean that it will not work for you...maybe i did something wrong..who knows...
Also does not play well with the Linkr extension. I've uninstalled JCE and re-installed it three times with the same results. Very buggy. Even on a completely separate Joomla site it's has the same issues. My favorite is when it intermittently highlights the entire contents in the editor when I'm trying to highlight a word! I love that! Again, buggy on both Joomla sites so I know I'm not the only one who had issues with JCE.
Switched to JoomlaFCK (only Editor I hadn't tried before) and like the other editors - have had no issues at all.
