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 installed JoomlaFCK 22.214.171.124 on a Joomla 1.5.0 installation, and JoomlaFCK 2.5.15 on a Joomla 1.0.13 installation. It seems to work fine in both cases, though I tried out just a few features, mainly editing HTML source and images.
Hi mattsson, did you know that the 2.6x series is the ‘only Joomla! editor’ that offers control over the ‘Auto format’ tool and therefore perfect for those advance-users. It can NOW be switched OFF and ON, either globally in the plug-in or on editor’s tool-bar, or on the fly by right clicking the mouse in the content area. Thanks for your encouragement! d:0)
The problem centers around the editors filemanager. When you attempt to upload images to the server it craps out with an error "Connector is disabled. Please check the "editor/filemanager/connectors/php/config.php" file.
Some advanced users have posts on elaborate fixes for this -- but these fixes should be incorporated in a new release - if, indeed, they really work.
This problem has been going on for a month now and no solution has been posted in the forms by the staff.
I have users that need to use this function -- a lot. In the interest of serving my users I will be going to JCK 1.1.1 - I understand they do not have this problem.
It really is a shame. JoomlaFCK was a GREAT Joomla Editor. What happened -- I don't know. Maybe it was updates to Joomla from 1.0.13 to 1.0.15 - but whatever it is it appears to be affecting quite a few people and only silence from the staff in the forums.
If they ever figure it out and fix it I might be tempted to give it a go again as it WAS a great editor.
Within a few days of releasing version 2.5.1 on January 16th we released Critical Security update which causes a problem with the editor’s file manager.
Our response was swift because someone had posted a forum on the web that detailed how to hack Joomla! through the editor’s config.php file. So in being prudent we released version 2.5.1a within a few days. Some users reported a problem so we responded by released a fix in version 2.5.15 which resolved the issue.
If you update your 2.5.1 versions to 2.5.15 you will find that this has indeed been fixed. As configurations do vary occasional users may have problem but may I assure you of our on going efforts to resolves them.
When you wanna have a table with a flash on one cell and an image on the other cell, there is no other way than to create a new module and use an editor. And for that JCE doesn't seem to able to handle flash files.
FCK is the editor to use when you wanna do this. And it looks extremely fast and does the job.
The interface is nice as well and its relatively easy to use.
lookign at the source code while in the editing mode is a breeze.
I would say 5 stars for FCK because it does something other editors cannot.
Dear nikko500, thank you for your comments. Would you be so kind to email us the details of the problems as so we can have a looking into it and resolve any issue.

Hi stonep, thank you for your comment.
May I invite you to take the time to comment you issue with the Error message, Screen shots, JoomlaFCK & VM version, Browsers and Server type etc on the JoomlaFCK forums.
If we can find out a bit more info we will look into it for you.
The first thing you'll notice is that the layout and graphical styling is very clean and professional, which gives immediate confidence that here is someone who knows how to design a graphical tool. The speed is good, and there are a great number of options and parameters available which should fulfill most site requirements.
But the most important thing for me with this Editor is the ability to use custom classes and styles. These are consistent and work when you hit the Apply button, unlike some Editors I've tried.
Excellent product - highly recommended - and it's non-commercial. And to the reviewer who complains about not been able to get rid of it, my response is simple: why on earth would you want to?
I went through the whole uninstall process and added the new editor to replace this WYSIWIG but instead of having a new editor to try out, I was left with no WYSIWIG whatsoever and no place to add content. (Firefox 2.0, Joomla 1.0.15)
Reinstalling JoomlaFCK resolved the issue, but apparently I'm stuck with it.
I'm not entirely upset as its still a great product.
You only need to update Joomla!'s Global Configuration and set the JoomlaFCK as default. We also have tutorial that would have walked you thought the changes.
My rating has been lowered because of the lack of support!!!
I’m sorry to hear that! Our eagerness to provide support over the last 2 weeks has been occupied in actively implementing some of the request and bug fixes kindly mentioned by the community on our forms.
We active visit the forms daily and I hope the 4 new JoomlaFCK versions which we plan to have with you by Monday week, possible earlier will be proof enough of our commitment to those whom have contributed!
This will see 2 beta releases of Version 2.6.0 and 2 stable release of Version 2.5.x compatible with both J! 1.0.x and J! 1.5.x.
We are excited about these releases and are sure they will be welcomed with the same enthusiasm.
Great editor - will donate $
Thanks for your support. Really appreciate your kind words and encouragement.
Joomla 1.0.12 - I was having so much trouble inserting flash movies into my pages with the stock editor and JoomlaFCK 2.5.1a fixed all those problems.
The only thing lacking is a way to input a text memo field, in my case I want to provide the html code for linking to an image on my server so people can cut n past to their site. Maybe I have to look more, but I didn't see it.

To move between design and code view in tinyMCE requires opening a popup window with an unformated presentation of the code. It is difficult to view because the text is not wrapped.
Using JoomlaFCK the code is wrapped, which makes viewing code more appealing.
To add or manage images in tinyMCE, there's no upload or browse option, so you have to know the name of the images and where they are located. Additionally, if you want to add new images from your HD you would have to go to your FTP program to upload them.
Using JoomlaFCK, the image manager includes upload and browse options, so you upload new images or browse the image directory to select images to display.
Awesome to find an open-source Editor that offers so many features!
There only a couple of things I have found that I don't like is that the "Read More" button does not function in IE7. I does however work in Firefox so, problem solved. The other is that the editor background takes on the color of the Template background.
Now, when J1.5 comes, I tried JoomlaFCK. Was very surprised how's fast and reliable, simple and powerful.
It fully covers may very different needs: as an standard author of articles and rather sophisticated html coder.
All four my thumbs up!
