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.
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!
The "insert picture" works very well, and give all the main options for alignment of the picture within the article.
I would have give it 6 stars if it allowed to insert a mini gallery ... maybe in the next version. :)
All in all great editor !-)
This is in spite of FCKeditor not yet having a file manager, but it does boast an image manager upload utility, which is easier and more intuitive then JCE's offering, which is essentially a plugin. FCKeditor is simple to use and install and has a nice template system. Downloading, installing and putting it to use only took approximately three minutes tops. It is simply the best. Thanks.
Furthermore the editor isn't compatible with Safari at all.
The editor is compatible with the latest release of version 9.5 beta; this was in fact released prior to our claim! The exciting news sees the Opera team working the editor to resolve incompatibility issue with the browsers! These advances are only implemented in the latest beta of Opera 9.5!
The latest release of the JoomlaFCK is compatible with Safari 3.0+ but as different configuration very we are happy to work with those willing to post the problems on the official JoomlaFCK website. This is because it is difficult to resolve any problem you might be having without knowing more information?
Second: Normal FCK Editor (without Joomla) shows a lot of Style Lists, like emphasis,big,small,Marker:Yellow,Marker:green,......
All these Styles are not shown in Joomla Component of FCK Editor.
I tried to fix it, but failed.
I believe these Styles are very important and Joomla Plugin of FCK mush have this feature too.
Beside this, I have no other Issue and still this Plugin gets Full Rating from me.
Note: the useful feature of linking to an Article through a dropdown is not present for the 1.5 version.
I’m sorry to hear that you are having problems with embedding image. Unfortunately we are unaware that the editor produces a wrong path links when embedding image in the current version but are happy to work with you to resolve any problem there might be!
