Had a bit of a problem with the install, but tryed the beta and it went in, it seems to be "hands down" a very impressive alternative to the standard editor. The back end interface is great, no more having to carve out image links by memory

thanks fck

This is the best editor that i ever used, easy to use, friendly image manage, excellent view, etc. This editor it's better than JCE guys belive me. I rate this editor EXCELLENT + ONE STAR MORE...

I gave this the highest rating possible since it loads alot faster than JCE and has just as much feature. Most importantly, its free! I've since reverted to this editor ever since trialling began. Was on JCE prior to that.

Suggested improvement is to allow popup windows when clicking on images as oppose to a new window.

Excellent work!

FCK editor is a wonderful wysiwyg editor, but it still lacks some of the key features that JCE has. There isn't a file manager system, and there doesn't seem to be a plugin system to add additional features. Now FCK looks nice and clean, and works very well. In the short time that I used it, I didn't find a way to remove/rearrange the buttons on the toolbars.

An very good editor, however I think that its biggest downfall is the lack of a File Manager for files other than .swf.

i've just downloaded this bot. it looks good so far.
i haven't tested it yet (haven't got the time to play around with it) but it looks promising from what i've seen so far.

as described, the interface looks like MS Word which helps a lot for users who are not familiar with Tiny interface.

the best bit is it allows users to upload file onto the server from front end which is what i'm after as i don't want to give users permission to access the back end.

i highly recommend this bot/component.

Its an excellent editor. Nice and easy to use with action packed image handling. I have a problem with the width setting of the editor but there are options in the settings so that worked out fine.Highly recommended extension

FCKEditor is by far the best Joomla! content editor. Toolbar looks clean and has lots of editing features. What you see is really what you get, which isn't the case for most of the other free editors out there. Documentation is sparse, but the technical support is excellent. The only minor complaint is that the "insert picture" from browsing the server doesn't preview the pictures as you click on them. But other than that, I highly recommend this text editor to anyone!

I have used JoomlaFCK 1.2.0 now for one year in several Joomla installations. I just upgraded one site to use the newest 2.4.4, but it had several problems with IE 6.0 and the file browser didn't work so I had to fall back to 1.2.0. That version is still solid enough and has served my customers' nicely.

This editor is not recommended for sites where folks who are used to writing material using Microsoft Word or any other popular word processor will be contributing articles. The range of fonts and font sizes available to a writer is far too limiting and small. joomlafck2 is a bit better and JCE is best of all for sights aimed at serious writers.

This could be a great editor if it wouldn't replace with end knew more about image positioning.

The editor is really nice and certainly appears more useful than the tinyMCE provided in the joomla distribution. A feature I like is the ability to see html code in the same window as I often switch from one view to the other. What is truly outstanding with this software is the support. I received an answer that corrected my problem within 15mins of posting the question.

The br / p settings in the bot still doesn't work. If you try setting to br & click save it keeps going back to p. This is useless with some modules eg Tabs & sliders not working when configured with inserted into the page code.

I try to compare this to JCE.

JoomlaFCK is better for:
- faster
- nicer (office and silver skins)
- easier
- good Flash objects support (for JCE's latest version is not free)

JCE is better for:
- plugin manager (you can enable/disable each button)
- user access levels (you can enable some buttons only for specific user levels, example Author)
- ability to separate user images (each user upload and use images in it's own folder, and cannot see other images)
- advanced links (to Joomla's contents, contacts, ...)

I am getting frustrated with this plugin. From withing the editor everything looks ok, but after I click "Apply" or "Save" there is no telling what will show up. It changes my styling (font type, font size, paragraphs, puts in empty div tags etc). I find myself editing within the source code more that within the "WYSIWYG". It might have something to do with me using the "Apply" function rather than "Save".

Is it me or is it the plugin?

The only WYSIWIG editor that allowed me to let users upload pictures on the front-end.

I’m not one to leave comments but this editor is the best and it free!

I was recently tempted to go back to the Tiny editor when I read that they has integrated FCK editor file manager, but when I did I became frustrated with how slow it was. Thanks guys well done.
