Includes advanced Image/Media, File and Link handling, plugin support, and an Administration interface for editor configuration.
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.
Are you using Joomla! 1.0.13? Did you apply the Joomla! Admin session fix?
Works like a charm !
Thank you for saving my day!
But then go to your front end and see how your articles have been trashed. I have slash marks and other weird formatting in content where none existed before. Every time I delete them, they re-appear in a few minutes.
Formatting from Word is completely ignored.
But worst of all, the plugins I was using (like tabs and slides in content or video streaming) in my articles are ignored and disabled and I'm spending my entire day uninstalling mambots and plugins, finding those zipped files again and reinstalling them after I've uninstalled JCE. All the while, my e-zine looks like crap on the front end, I keep getting visitors to my website.
This is taking all day, but I thought I'd pause to warn others . . . .don't waste your time with this extension.
Have you posted on in the forum about any of your problems?
I would recommend that everyone try this program.
Keep up the good work!
Not so with JCE : It's a great editor, with easily-identifiable tool bar buttons, step-by-step options for adding links & many more user-friendly features.
I've been editing Mambo / Joomla for years - JCE is the best editor out there by far - and my clients can use it.
Both the free and commercial versions are great and well-worth checking out.
I am not going to just tell you it is good. But rather explain a few reasons WHY its good. For one, it is highly customizable. You can edit the layouts, colors, etc. Second, it is open source! Third, it allows for lots of coding directly through its text field which many WYSIWYG editors lack. And there are MANY other reasons, but those a few of the main ones I could think of off the top of my head.
I am a very experienced programmer and web designer.
Take it from me, if your looking for an open source and FREE WYSIWYG editor, this is hands down your best bet.
(PS. If I made any typos or misfacts, pardon me. I am not looking back and am typing very fast being a busy man)
But seriously, get this.
The plugins are great, it's so very easy too insert all kinds of content: images, movies, pdf, links etc.
The only minor point is that the developer works so hard :).There are many upgrades which aren't always properly tested. But his support is very good.
JCE runs on all my joomla! sites.
I highly recommend this product with one reservation: it can be difficult to get it working correctly depending on your server configuration. Luckily, the developer is VERY responsive and helpful.
