Includes advanced Image/Media, File and Link handling, plugin support, and an Administration interface for editor configuration.
After that, everything went fine. A most highly configurable editor. What I liked especially is being able to highly configure the frontend editor to the needs of my client. A must have for Joomla.
Just go to the JCE Administration>Configuration on the Components menu in Site Administration.
Set the Use Template CSS in the Formatting section to NO
Copy the system editor template from templates/system/css/editor.css to the location specified in the Custom CSS File field in the Formatting section. $template is the default template name.
Modify the new template to match your default template scheme.
It works for me. JCE is better than I originally thought! I learn something new every day.
There's a very good reason this is one of the highest rated WYSIWYGs on the JED, as well as Editor's Pick.
Re-installing (with the latest release) of course makes editing possible again.
Isn't it suppose to revert back to the default editor?
Which editor is set as the default is not controlled by JCE but is an option set either in the Joomla! Configuration or in the Joomla! USer Manager. If the editor has been uninstalled, it cannot influence the default editor setting. What you are highlighting here may be a bug in Joomla!, not an issue with JCE.
But there is one problem with the default editor..
It wants your HTML cade to start with either or no other tag seems to work (not even )! And that was really giving me headaches. because at most occasions there would be too much blank space above your content to your linking.
I then tried to find out the best Joomla editor and everyone recommended JCE so I gave it a go.
And it worked straight out of the box. There were no more or tags. The code remained what you intend it to be. Add to that a smarter interface and you get a very comprehensive editor in JCE..!!!
Good work guys..!!! And a BIG HUG for keeping it Open-Source.!!!
As they say.."Best Things in Life are FREE..!!!"
At 1st I was ok waiting 10-15 seconds for the editor to load in the back end, I figured it just takes a bit for all the rich functions to load. I was using this editor for about 3 weeks and I started noticing that page loading on the front end is considerably slowed down as well.
I made a template for a customer, uploaded no problems and I figured instead of editing each article in dreamweaver or typing out all the code I can shave off some time by using all the functions JCE provides. Load times trippled, and sometimes pages would just load forever. Since there was no other components installed by process of elimination JCE was responsible. I uninstalled it and load times are now near instantaneous, as they should be for a simple article layout.
I went back and removed the component from other web sites I've used it and all sites showed a considerable improvement on loading times.
Quite unfortunate since this offers a lot of flexibility while working with joomla. They structure and layout of the editor is brilliant but I can't afford to sacrifice such long loading times on the front end.
The JCE Editor is only loaded when an article is edited so there is no way that the editor could be responsible for slowing down your site front-end when not editing an article.
Having said that, this is a great improvement over the standard Joomla editor. It is particularly useful if you want to add Flash movies, but has many other useful features. The great thing about it is that it allows your to customize a lot of the editor behaviour, though as I mentioned above it only seems to work for the default group.
It also includes a code highlighter, which is very useful if you want to edit the html. Also you can turn off the feature which converts absolute into relative URLs on your site - this is very useful if you are trying to send out a newsletter, otherwise any links to your site in the newsletter will not work.
It is a bit of work to install and set up the editor, but well worth the effort.
