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
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.
Hi ideasgirl, thanks you. - The next release (version 2.6.3 that we hope to have with you by today) promises to be even simpler to install. We have worked hard to do away with corresponding files for Joomla! 1.0x & 1.5x by creating ‘ONE’ installation file for both versions.
After reading the several positive reviews I downloaded the JoomlaFCK editor and was surprised how's fast, reliable, and feature rich it is. The interface is beautiful and a delight to use !
So here’s the facts: - JCE is Good but the JoomlaFCK is better !!!
Thanks, I’m sure your comment will be of interest to many JCE users.
Well that's my thought exactly, but enough said! Since last 2007 we have work relentlessly on the project & it has seen a radical set of improvements! Maybe it the case that users have become devoted to using a particular editor & have yet to try it out? Anyway thanks mallamace for your support. Much appreciated!
Thanks for the editor, I can rest easier having a better finish using borders. I know it can all be done with HTML and CSS, but it is a lot less hassle copying and pasting from Word.
THE GOOD NEWS! The next release (version 2.6.3) will go further to assist your requirements! It will allow users to apply borders styles to tables simply by using the iStyles tool!
Thanks for your vote! Delighted to hear that copying & pasting from Word works for you!
The design and interface is slick and well organised which makes it a pleasure to use. The Installation went perfectly, seams very stable in IE7 and FF3, everything works and it's FREE!
5 stars - excellent extension!
Hi Gov999, bless ya & thanks for taking the time to post your comment! Much appreciated!
Although I’m quite new to Joomla I’ve used many WYSIWYG editors in the past – written quite a few myself as well – and JoomlaFCK is an excellent and well thought-out Editor.
For me, an editor that you can use without having to think too much, or one you don’t have to create workarounds by hand re-coding all the HTML the editor misses or messes up is a good editor in my book. FCK fits that bill nicely and the interface has a nice look too which is important too.
Compatibility is good. I think I noticed a couple of issues in IE7 surrounding Image Properties which meant I had to use flick into FireFox – but that’s no drama for me.
Excellent choice overall. Great job WebX!!
Hi spangle, Thanks really appreciate your comments. I am not currently aware of any IE7 issues surrounding Image Properties. Could I kindly invite you to elaborate a bit more on our forums and we will look into it for you.
Like many others, I had trouble with the file manager portion of the product. I was getting "Premature End of Script Files" or some such XML error. Research on the web-site revealed no solution. Research on Google led me to the solution, for me. It appears there are different line-endings in some parts of the code. Installing from a Windows box to a Linux box produced faulty files. As a last result, I installed from Windows to Windows, and then FTPed the files to the server. Almost all functions now work just fine.
Complaint: their web-site refuses to allow me to login. I have tried several times over several months to reset password, etc, to no avail. Actually, this seems to be a Joomla fault -- I've seen it myself on my site. If it were not for highly motivated users, many of mine would never get on and I would never know. THERE NEEDS TO BE A "CONTACT US" MENU ITEM on every web-site, so problems can be reported.
As I understand it both Safari & Opera are working hard to resolve some of their rich text editing support. Advancement needs to be addressed on both sides and so we presently claim 85% compatible with Safari & Opera. We are soon to release the latest Joomla! implementation of the FCK code, in which we will go as far as possible to address some of these compatibility issues for you. ****NOTE: Our ‘Contact Us’ form can be found under the 'Get involved!' menu item on our website. Would you be so kind to email us & I will look into why the system has banned you. Thanks & take care.
In Safari, you still cannot right click an image and get the edit image options... it thinks that you are in the text and not on the image.
In Safari, the popup for inserting images and links does not work. Just shows a cancel button in the upper right hand side and clicking it does nothing.
Hi The_Mastermind, I did notice that the 1st compatible Firebug version for FF3 kept refreshing the page a bit, I didn’t consider or think it might be the editor! However i’m not getting this anymore! Maybe it was resolver when Firebug was last updated? Thanks for your input & engorgement, I think I have answer your comment in the post above. Take care.
Later it had something that was showing errors and by urgency I had to switch to JCE.
Now I checked that there was some fixes done, and it's great again. JCE is good but it doesn´t have flash uploader free.
Thanks for your work! I like very much this mambot.
The next release which will be version 2.6.3 will offer relative path to both flash & images items! This should allow JCE user who use relative image paths to simply migrate across & still be able to view their images in the editor.
God bless ya!
