Includes advanced Image/Media, File and Link handling, plugin support, and an Administration interface for editor configuration.
I installed it, thanks to Joomla that was SO easy, and off I went to write my pages. The extensions for JCE are so great and JCE has a cool plugin adder thing similiar to Joomla so its super Easy!
Great extensions are the image manager and media manager, you can upload files straight from the WYSIWYG! No more having two windows open just to upload and edit, all in ONE!
These guys are great :)
Compliant code output, simple to use, ease of plugin creation & updating, full admin control, it cleans up MS Word content & more.
the ONLY glitch i found was that if you have an empty tag, it deletes it, so U combat by adding a in the middle.
Awesome work, and brilliant interaction from the developer on his forum. Donate some money and promote this one, enjoy!
Actually the main reason for writing this review was to correct the guy before me, who said that this component was no longer free. That is incorrect. The component itself is still free, however support for users is now on a subscription basis, due to the developers high cost of bandwidth, which seems fair enough to me.
The support for streaming video plus the image manager makes this a HUGE step up from TinyMCE editor. Highly recommended.
Regarding installation issues - it took me a while to get Joomla to recognise JCE as my new editor of preference. Strangely enough after I'd set it as default in global preferences, unpublished both standard editors and checked that configuration.php noted that the editor was indeed JCE, Joomla was still showing TinyMCE (even though I'd unpublished it). The only resolution was to individually go into user menu, select myself, and set default editor that way. I don't believe this is a bug on JCE's part, but rather Joomla.
Only one bug - It has difficulties if you use the iJoomla Magazine Component. I could not get it to work on one element - adding Editions. Workaround is to swap editors before doing it, and so it is only a minor, but irritating, thing.
Other than that it appears to do as it says..
I had trouble with tiny mce as you have to load images into a media manager...then port them across. ...why?
JCE has an image manager module, a flash module and a file upload module. If you install these then users can upload their images onto the site direct. You can also disable this feature if you want to!
