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 like the editor and I have a suggestion for the future versions: create an option to disable right click context menu, so that sloppy users like myself can use the default browser menu with options like *spell checking*, etc. I really, really need to use the browser's spell checker and I can't. I am rather frustrated about this.
Does anyone know how to disable the context menu that I really don't need?
Hi, this is something we will consider. BUT if it is the case that the default spell checker is greyed out and your only option is to use the browsers spell check, version 2.6.4 may come as a welcomed surprise! It now uses WebSpellChecker", a zero installation and free spell checker which now will give you a powerful alternative.
Fast, powerfull but not upload media function is really a problem and plugin flv is very bad.
In being prudent, I personal tested version's 188.8.131.52b flash plugin & wasn’t able to reproduce the problem in FF3,Safari,IE7 or within new IE8 browsers. We haven’t received any bugs reporting the same & I haven’t been able to find a ticket on fckeditor.net! May I invite you to detail the issue on our site & we will look into it 4 u?
We’ve been caught up on a few commercial projects over the last few months BUT we have penciled in time AND the next few weeks will see us release a new version (2.6.4). I think you will like it!
Fantastic job people. Keep up the great work.
Thanks cmscritic, appreciate your support.
We are planning to release a component for it shortly BUT we have designed it in a way in which the editor will still work without it! Yes it easy, doesn’t require a component one installation and you are up and running.
Thank you SSwamp_Trooper, your comment is much appreciated but I think some of the appreciation should be directed towards the JED team whom spent hours of there time administrating our reviews. Thank you d:o)
I would agree with you because I’m the developer, right! But in all seriousness I expect that most site administrator spend 90% of their time in using the ‘editor' creating and administering content. So editors must be one of the most important aspects of Joomla!
This extension has an ability to automatically assign default template.css used and the option to add many additional css files. This is brilliant!
The developer's support & respond is fast & helpful.
I hope someday they will develop many more feature like advanced table editing, inserting URL to article / other components, etc etc... It's about a time :-)
Thank you for delivering such great extension! I highly recommend it.
Hi marsares, I thank you for your kind words and for taking the time to support us and the project!
My site authors etc aren't very clued in on HTML and this one gives them the Word feeling. They're so much more confident now in creating and editing articles, it's unreal. Thank you so much!
Hello Marsares, our aim is to provide the users with a familiar style (interface)and so we are delighted to hear that it’s a welcomed addition. The skin still retains its super-light weight properties, while offering an advanced compact mode that can compact down to 250px width!
Download this and upgrade your editor. You will not regret it!
I know some open-source users would prefer us to steer away from using the MS 2007 style toolbar as default but your argument is compelling! I agree as it must be right to bring a familiar User Interface (UI) that is simple to use. Thanks for the review.
This editor has so many outstanding features, e.g. switching between code and WYSIWYG-mode.
Cause of this I had to make a donation to support this excellent work!!
Thank you, Thank you, Thank you, I feel inspired to make it even better. d:o) O’ and Merry Christmas!
The plug-in also addresses the com_content XSS vulnerability by automatically adding filters groups for Registered and Author users if they have not been setup manually in older version of J! 1.5 as well! It 1st checks to see if the Article Filter group have been setup, if not it will automatically add filters groups for Registered and Author users if they have not been setup manually. Thanks spiralx & Merry Christmas.
Note: the current version of Linkr (for anyone that uses this great tool) does not work with FCK with respect to adding links to images. This is a Linkr issue that the author knows about and is fixed in the next, forthcoming release.
Hi David, we would be delighted to have you give us 6 stars & give careful attention to our user‘s requests! We have had some internal discussion,it's firmly on our things to do! In fact the 'newsletters mode' evolved from a similar conversation with Acajoom team. This has materialised in the latest version 184.108.40.206 as the 1st & only editor to provide such a resolve. So hold on, we will get there! Thanks d:o)
But it seems to be have some kind of bug.
Because then i installed version 220.127.116.11 automatically with joomla it do not want to work, i got some error that some plugins was missing when i tried to edit my articles.
I has to installed manually (unzip files, transfer them to the server with ftp).
And now it works fine.
Hi beelzebubs, thanks 4 the vote! I’m pleased you found a positive resolve. Take care
Hi Gospodnetic, thank you for positive vote, for spreading the Word! I’m sure many JCE users will be interested by your review! Take care.
