Includes advanced Image/Media, File and Link handling, plugin support, and an Administration interface for editor configuration.
My client asked me to give a facility to create links to existing contents, I am giving her JCE.
I have decided to have JCE as my default WYSIWYG editor in all my Joomla installations.
Ryan, you made my day!!! Thanks a ton.
It has a few quirks, one of which is that when you cut/paste from the JCE WSIWYG editor into an external editor like MS Frontpage using the design tab, the HTML generated has '/administrator/administrator' inserted into every URL link. When you edit that in your external editor and paste it back in, then beware...your links won't work.
I don't know why that is but I've learnt to live with it. I seldom edit externally anyway so it isn't much of a problem.
Another quirk is that the editor is susceptible to the wrong URL, if you put sitename.co.uk in the browser and your Joomla site is configured as www.sitename.co.uk, the editor content pane may not show up at all. This may be a Joomla problem though and not a JCE specific issue.
I have also had problems trying to get JCE as the default editor, sometimes having to de-install all the other editors and re-install JCE a couple of times before it would work.
Once installed and working it is my editor of choice and all my sites now have JCE installed by default.
After you install JCE, at the bottom of the "success" page we see that the work on JCE is dedicated to his (Ryan's) father.
Ryan, he is proud of you.
JCE is fantastic!
Quality - excellent
Usefulness - excellent
Features - stellar (i.e. beyond excellent)
Configurable - excellent
Ease of installation - excellent
I can't say enough good things about this component and all the useful plugins (especially the latest image manager)
Wish - I wish all the blog components, forum components, and any add-ons that include html entries (e.g. editor text area) would simply allow JCE to create HTML for their application - all users and admins would benefit!
Anyone that uses this component should send a donation immediately. He has single handedly saved hundreds (if not thousands) of people hours-and-hours of time with JCE.
So at first I was reluctant to try this one, but what can I say!? It's really worth it!
Thanks to the developer for all the effort...
... and let's pray that some developer-genius might add a slicky slim-highslid-lightbox super-duper popup image-plugin for free some time..
Easy to install, simple to configure, yet powerful enough to provide the kind of functionality necessary for any level of 'end-user client expertise'.
This slick little editor goes in all our Joomla installs as a matter of course.
Also being able to configure the layout is good as it lets you limit the damage your users can do when they start to use page level formatting. As well as speeding up the load time by leaving out some of the functions that aren't necessary for most users.
A must have for extension.
JCE takes some investment of time to learn properly if you're relatively new like me. But it is worth it. Quite powerful to use and easy to recommend.
