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.
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 220.127.116.11 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 18.104.22.168 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.
I like being able to switch skins since I use both Office 2007 & 2003.
I can EASILY resize FCKeditor to fit my website, the larger the better for accessibility!
File attachment is a much needed feature for me.
On my LOCAL Linux site I can't get Aspell working even though I have the most recent version of it.
I cannot even install FCK on my hosted site, I keep getting a server 2006 error, even though all server settings look fine. FCK is the ONLY plugin that will not install.
Hi Ripose, Thanks you for your kind review & are sorry to hear that Aspell doesn’t seam to be working for you on your server. I know many users enjoy using it & recently learned that www.joomlawired.com offers Aspell with the JoomlaFCK editor to all their uses. - The only thing I can advise it that you take us up on one of our customer support plan & Andrew or I will look into it for you. Take care d:0)
Hi aussiemike, delighted to hear that and thank you for your kind contribution.
Have tried almost all editors but now I don´t have to search any more. JoomlaFCK are now free from the issues that have caused me trouble. Pictures couldn´t be seen or transfered to the server. Now that´s history. Thanks for a very good work. Now I don´t expect any more updates.
Hi bassman, thank you for your positive contribution. I know you have engaged with us on our forums and are delighted that we have found a positive resolve.
As you are an Acajoom fan we have some very good news for you! We have been working with team and have found a resolve that will automatically embed template styles into the newsletter article and take care of the compatibility with mail clients. I will email you when it release later today. Take care.
Perfect integration with the other plugins I use (Linkr for example) and with the css template from my template.
Thanks for such a positive review! A great encouragement and i’m sure your review will be of interest to many users.
Been using this excellent editor on all my sites. Thanks again!
Thanks Abishai, pleased you like it! The folder idea is the brain child of our head developer, Andrew. I will let him know you like it!
I had one or two questions and the team were quick to respond to me. For the reasons stated and many others we currently offer this editor as the default editor in all of our Joomla installations.
Hi churchil, thanks you for your kind words, much appreciated!!!
Things I love:
- being able to link to a file
- having formmated code
- having Jlink :)
- relative paths works great
- right click on tables brings up great menu's (only works in IE7 and not FF3 in my experience)
- different skins are fun
- and many more things are great about this plugin.
Things to improve:
- When I do a Jlink, it would be real nice to see a list of articles in the format I see them on the admin side of joomla (title, author, section, category).
- Be able to remove some buttons that confuse users (the picture button for "input" looks just like the other picture button)
- When I click upload tab for images and files it automatically uploads to the root folder (very fustrating).
- files should not be in images folder ex. images/files/doc1.pdf . I should be able to specify a folder.
- after installing JoomlaFCK I no longer am able to use my default media editor.
Hi wingman011, thank you for your review & in depth analyst. We are committed to improving and always pay careful attention to our user’s commentary.
The Good News: is that we are soon to release a component that will offer much of the flexibility requested and version 2.6.3 supports ability to change the location path of documents/ images/& Media files via the plug-in so I hope this comes as a welcomed relief to your frustration.(Please see: http://www.joomlafckeditor.com/support/tutorials/105-changing-the-location-path-of-the-flash-media-and-documents-files)Thanks d:0}
Hi deck2deck, thank you for your positive contribution & we are delighted that you have found our work a welcomed relief. We are planning to launch 2 new components 1 of them will work in partnership with the latest version of the editor, so we will keep you posted.
Hi VTecheira, thanks for your encouragement. You comment finds the project in its most interesting season! Without saying to much version 2.6.3 is our biggest release because it architecture places an essential launch pad in the projects next evolutionary step forward. It’s about to get even better!
Hi blaap, I’ve just searched through our forums & was unable to find any recently forums reported of the same! I did find your username & noticed that you have yet to post or report any bugs! If you do, we will of course look into it for you on Monday.
Hi caminkingston, thanks for your encouraging words and for speaking on behalf of us.
Now, with the ability to link in documents, PDFs, as well as their built in article linking - it puts it a league ahead of the Joomla system itself, as these are all things that really should be standard in Joomla.
5 stars to the developers here .. and keep up the good work!
Well this is officially the best review we have every had, ha ha! When you think about it, users spend more time interacting with their editor’s interface that any other Joomla! extension. So it makes sense to place documents management tools at hands reach.
