Includes advanced Image/Media, File and Link handling, plugin support, and an Administration interface for editor configuration.
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.
Even if you disable the code rewriting it still edits your code. This even takes out HTML elements at times which it should never remove html tags.
JCE, it broke my site and this is not the first time.
The rating was actually raised on account that it is compatible with Zoo.
"Even if you disable the code rewriting it still edits your code. This even takes out HTML elements at times which it should never remove html tags."
Some elements - script, object, param, applet, iframe are removed by default, for security reasons, unless an appropriate configuration option is set or JCe plugin installed.
Joomla! also cleans code of certain elements unless configured not to - http://docs.joomla.org/Why_does_some_HTML_get_removed_from_articles_in_version_1.5.8%3F
The group configuration screen gives the impression that one can restrict editor facilities by group type, i.e. author, publisher, and if so desired restrict the group further by named users in the selected group type(s). The first part is true, but the second part does not work although it is possible to restrict access to specific users if no group type is selected. Whether or not this is the expected behaviour is a moot point given the lack of documentation, the absence of the flash movies referred to in the tutorials and the lack of user support when I tried to raise these problems on the support forum.
This is a great product though, and so long as you keep it simple in how you use it you won't go wrong.
Joomla and JCE go hand in hand!
In the forthcoming release of JCE, 1.5.8 there will be an integrated updater and better support for multi-images. This will make JCE even better and help JCE be the number 1 for editors.
Had the whole thing up and running in next to no time, was so impressed with the free applications that the modest costs for the commercial extensions were a no brainer.
Use, enjoy - it just works, thanks!!
