Most remarkably the JCK Editor is a free content editor for Joomla! It is free for you to use and install on any of your sites under the GPL licence!
★IPAD & IPHONE RESPONSIVE
For the first time you don’t need a special Joomla Mobile App to upload and manage your website on your iPad or on your iPhone! This is because the JCK Editor is now responsive in Joomla 3.0!
This approach suggests that design should respond to the user’s behaviour and environment based on screen size, platform and device. With the newly designed dialog screens the editor now offers support for the new IOS 6 file upload which wasn’t possible in Safari until now!
We've taken the Editor to the design shop and married creative and technical disciplines into a truly beautiful and user-friendly interface. Your find it easier to use, more productive, a tool which aims to put the user in the driving seat.
Everyone likes to edit their own way, so we’ve made it easier to adjust the JCK interface. Re-arrange, organize, add or remove buttons or change the colour of the skin in the editor’s parameters.
Fasten your seatbelt the API engine has always been fast, but this is the fastest ever! It gives the editor dramatically better performance than ever before which means, web editing will feel snappier and more responsive. It’s astonishingly 18x times faster at loading than the JCE Editor – having only a tiny memory footprint, so users can work faster and be more productive! But hey - if you don't believe us, why don't you give it a try and see how fast you can go?
Its much more than an out-of-the-box installation of the CKeditor! We’ve been under-the-hood and joomla-ised its logic into a seamless and extendable integration. Users can now choose what plug-ins, tool-bars and shape its architecture in all sense of the word - with ease!
★LARGEST PLUGIN REPOSITORY
Plug-ins are the cornerstone of customisation, letting you personalize your editing experience. These apps can be used to quickly and simply expand the functionality of the editor and with the largest growing extension base of all Joomla editors, you'll be able - to do much more…
★MANAGE YOUR FILES IN ONE PLACE
Upload images and files, view thumbnails in one place without needing to navigate away! It doesn’t stop there as Joomla! user groups can have their own personal folders, which can be used in a verity of ways! For storing online documents, for nested folders, for relative links to media, flash, electronic documents and image files. The best part is its simplicity - it’s useful, fun, totally
i don't rate it excellent just for this:
"it's a bit heavy for slow connections!:("
As the JCK Editor has matured over the years there has been many plug-ins created for it! This means great new features, but with every JCK plugin installed there is a chance of causing a degrade in performance. The JCK Editor shouldn’t feel slow, particularly when compared to JCE and TinyMCE. If it does, try these trouble shooting tips: http://www.joomlackeditor.com/installation-guide?start=32
Hi, Google Chrome made some changes which broke the editor’s right click dialog screen to edit tables, cells, rows and columns. This was addressed over a month ago to date in version 6.1.3. If you upgrade it should resolve this for you. I hope this will assure you of our continuing efforts and swift response.
The only slight problem is that it doesn't work on the front end with some templates. It has a tendency to lock page scrolling, so front-end work still needs Joomla's standard editor.
Apart from that, a great extension!
Hi Sohrab, that you for your kind review. The RTL and LTR should happen ‘automatically’ depend upon language type. So if you choose something like Arabic it should align to the right automatically for you.
Hi TimbTech, that you for your 'Amazing' review! Its gr8 to have such positive feedback.(o:b
I had installation problem which I thought may have been related to the latest release. No point in publishing a review until investigating my issues. Reported this in JCK Editor forum and got an instant response with details how to resolve my problem leading to a perfect installation.
Easy to recommend this product, it is doing what it should be, working as well as the best editors I have used and has wonderful product support. Looking forward to exploring the full potential of JCK Suite.
Hi Steve, we are delighted that we could help. (O:b
There are some compatibility issues with IE10. You need to be in IE10's "compatibility mode" (emulate IE9) in order to browse and upload media and to insert line breaks in the editor. A small inconvenience that I hope the JoomlaCK folks will fix soon.
Thank you for the review. Just to let you know that the latest release (JCK Suite 6.1) now comes with support for IE10 (standard mode).
Dear Tim, Thank you for the 4 stars. There is a setting called ‘Auto Format Source’. If you turn it on it will keep your line breaks upon saving. Hope that helps.
Thanks for the positive review! And I am delight to hear that you have just found us and love using the editor! I presume that you are using the JCK Media Embed which has become a very popular extension for our editor. All the best. Paul.F
