The JCK Editor offers an elegant editing experience which is more familiar due to its office like interface yet configurable enough to be used for enterprise developments. It seeks to strike a balance between being feature rich, beautiful and easy-to-use.
Unique to any other editor’s it comes packaged with a collection of beautifully designed typography and content snippets ready for you to use right out-of-the-box!
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! So why not take a few minutes to see this in action for yourself by checking out one of our demo's.
However, the last couple of updates have errored out with FOF error.
Nicholas from Akeeba found the problem is when Admin Tools is installed with it's framework (called F0F), the install script for JCKEditor incorrectly refers to it as F-oh-F (FOF), rather than the correct F-zero-F (F0F). I did the corrections myself and everything installed perfectly.
I've notified them and am sure they'll issue a fix shortly.
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.

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.
