Includes advanced Image/Media, File and Link handling, plugin support, and an Administration interface for editor configuration.
It simply is way above the standard editor and the image manager extended plugin is to me a must have.
I am not a coder just a self taught learner. Thankyou Ryan for a great extension.
I've tried many over time and some editor developers stay flat lined with no advancements while others who did well no longer do well and of course on the flip side I have seen others not do well before but do better now.
Overall, I just moved from a paid editor extension (no names to be mentioned here) for the JCE one. I have to say it's been over a year since I last used JCE but took another look yesterday and decided I like this version a lot better. Well done on this one and thanks Ryan.
This extension must be upgrade with the ability to playback .mp4 files with flash and the ability to playback streaming flash video, both .mp4 and flv.
Sorry, I have to watch for another editor. That sad, because most other things will work.
(If the video thing had work, it had been and Excelent! extension, but standard support is a must to get a grade average and above in my view.).
mp4 files are supported by the Media Manager plugin and are set for playback by Quicktime by default. The bundled FLV player does not yet support mp4, but a custom player can be specified in the Media Manager parameters.
Also, the developer is constantly making improvements to an already incredible editing system. JCE Extensions make the entire front-end Joomla! content publishing experience very intuitive. Very easy to use, once you know the administration style (ie- modifying the crowded JCE default editor layout, defining permissions on uploads, etc.).
The developer to JCE is active in the forums, and responds to bugs via email!
Worth supporting for $20/year
JCE is still under constant development, and bugs don't last long with this group. Routine releases correct any reported issues, with nary a hiccup.
And if you're still using just the free component/plugin, you are missing the true value of JCE. Fork over the measly subscription ($20 per year right now) and get hold of some awesome plugins. Pay these guys to keep up the development, because this extension is worth so much more.
In the end, you and your users/clients will be much, much happier with your end product if you integrate JCE. Thanks to the developers on this one!!!
I tried some of the others (which do a fair job) but recently returned to JCE after struggling to find a decent way to incorporate flash and create image popups.
The small charge for a subscription to the extra add-ons is well worth it as it really is all in one (Image Manager, Utilities, Media Manager etc) and will save a lot of time.
Just a note on the media manager; if using, you must initially 'activate' it (JCE>Config>Groups>layout) besides that; an essential, well thought-out, and intuitively developed extension.
The TinyMCE editor makes it very difficult to include Google Adsense code in your articles (you have to turn off the TinyMCE editor, insert the code, and then never edit that article with the TinyMCE editor after that).
At first, I was infuriated that there was no HTML button on this editor at all! After poking around for about a half-hour, I figured out that you have to go into the Group settings under Components...JCE Administration, click on the "default" group, click on "layout", and then drag the icons for HTML editing into the "current editor layout".
So for all of you who are confused by the lack of an HTML button, it is there, you just have to configure it, and the configuration is VERY well buried in the settings.
Hope this information is helpful to some of you.
Unfortunately the no-show HTML / AdvCode button is due to a bug in JCE Admin Component 1.5.1
This will be fixed in the next update.
One of the best joomla investments I've made. For real.
One must do configuration change after you install. Open up the JCE admin area from Components and under configuration change the File Directory Path to your main images folder (take off "stories") so all your images are available when you try to insert something.
I have tried other editors and the JCE editor is simple superior to all of them. Great support and features around photos, files and video make this editor stand out.
Great work!! Highly recommend this editor
