Includes advanced Image/Media, File and Link handling, plugin support, and an Administration interface for editor configuration.
@tgelvin - Removal of the iframe-tag is a security feature of Joomla 1.5.8 and has nothing to do with JCE!
Note also that you have to activate html-upload in the configuration of JCE in order to get the uploads work with 1.5.8-defaults!
Well you're in luck because I have just released an IFrame plugin for JCE 1.5.x - http://www.joomlacontenteditor.net/downloads/plugins/jce15x.html
I haven't tried yet to write a plugin for JCE (this editor has a well thought architecture), but I think that this should be feasible.
One suggestion: to make a plugin to include community builder profile elements, or at least pictures of users. This could be added in the link plugin.
We chose this over our second favorite editor FCK because, of two reasons:
-You can stretch the side of the editor.
-Professional Look. JCE is the nicest looking editor around.
The only problem I have encountered is when running the editor in Firefox with Adblock or Adblock Plus.
Some of you probably don't even know about the Advanced Link Editor because Adblock is blocking the icon, advlink.gif, that must be clicked to activate the tool.
To allow the icon to be shown you need to go to Tools->Addons->Adblock (or Adblock Plus), click on the "Options" button, and then the "Add Filter..." button at the bottom left. Type in @@advlink and hit the "Ok" button.
An admin on the JCE forums (quickly) indicated that this issue would be resolved in a future release.
The installation is easy and works like it should. The basic plugin is the best edit around but then you have to get some plugins/adons (it doesnt have a media plugin by default)
wow ... now days you got to pay to get the plugin ?!?!
He got back to me within the hour with suggestions on how to properly use the component.
Well, I still managed to find a way to screw it up, so I made a little video of the problem and emailed Ryan a link.
He watched the video and promptly emailed me back the reason for my issues.
See, I was trying to set the default path to the root directory. Well, you can't do that, for security reasons.
If it wasn't for Ryan's quick response, I would have wasted hours trying to figure that out.
As it is, I changed my default directory and all is well.
Thanks for the quick response Ryan! Sadly, I don't get that kind of response from commercial software.
Keep up the great work!
HOWEVER...the current PLUGIN for 1.5 will not install. There is a temporary "fix" that's been issued. But it is not working for all.
Developer promises a permanent fix in the "next few weeks."
So if you're on a deadline or time crunch, might want to look elsewhere until this gets resolved. Hopefully soon.
The fix has been applied to the currently available downloads.
I was elated tonight when Ryan helped me configure JCE so that my built in Firefox spell checker worked!
I can't think of any reason NOT to use JCE as your default editor.
This absolutely rocks.
I recommend using the Advanced image manager plug-in, too, which adds a neat Lightbox and advanced image handling (e.g. text floating around images etc.) options.
