Includes advanced Image/Media, File and Link handling, plugin support, and an Administration interface for editor configuration.
And I really liked the lightbox utility, that makes my front page look sooo snazzy. The little magnifying glasses are so cute and I like the way they adjust to the padding around the image.
I had the issue with smoothgallery but I selected jquery in the jce mambot parameters and that fixed it.
I had to install the editor mambot manually but the instructions at the cellardoor site are very clear.
Well done and thanks.
Thank you, great job!
But $20? I did pay, and is absolutely satisfied with the product, but maybe 10$ for the extended version would be enough? The most expensive "software" I ever bought.
Unfortunately I deleted the installfiles of the old version I had downloaded last year, who had all the function I needed (pop-up picture, upload/compressing/resizing of pictures). Could have saved me a 20...
The plugins might make the installation worth while, but they are only available if you pay 20$ for a membership. The core component is not that good, so I'm not willing to pay to review the plugins.
In my opinion this extension should no longer be presented as GNU GPL, as the earlier free versions are removed, and the free download of JCE 1.1.x is not much of a WYSIWYG editor.

I will be attending to both these issues in the nest update, most likely available this weekend (05/05/07 - 06/05/07)
The features I appreciate:
1) Easy image upload and file management compared to the default editor.
2) Better image options when placing it into text.
3) Easy inserting of video/flash.
4) More options for cleaning up HTML or not than the default editor.
I recommend it for sure!
However, that doesn't mean it is an effective, bug-free editor.
* The flash tutorials are great, but very basic.
* Great plug-ins, and lots of control over button layout, and who gets to see them.
* The advanced (member-only, payment required) plug-ins are really nice.
* New Show/Hide HTML link is quick and handy/
* Install is fragmented. Follow the note above. (the nice 1.0.4 Flash tutorial has the install order wrong, so it won't help 1.1.0 users)
* Documentation is pitiful.
* Current 1.1.0 version is beta, so don't expect stability.
* This version breaks compatibility with older plug-ins. This really hurts the product, because you are forced to give up useful plug-ins when you upgrade.
TinyMCE -- The Biggest Drawback:
TinyMCE wound up wasting LOTS of time for us in our last two Joomla projects.
* It doesn't predictably handle structured content based on divs and spans.
* It doesn't handle embedded flash or forms.
* It inconsistently applies named styles from your CSS: maybe you get the tag you wanted, or you might get spans or divs. No rhyme or reason.
* In general, TinyMCE likes to clutter up it's HTML, even with the Clean HTML option set.
If the author of JCE can document the project adequately, and get rid of the bugs, he will have half of a great product. Sadly, all that greatness will still be neutralized by the inadequacies of the TinyMCE editor.
Still, JCE is the best WYSIWYG editor that the Joomla community has.
