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
It DOES NOT install like a normal plug in, but you have to upload it then configure the php files, etc.
installed it and now my site is working with FCK and uninstalled JCE.
Great piece of software :)
- File upload goes into : your_root_joomla/files/
- Pictures upload into the standard : your_root_joomla/images/stories
I try every tips of the web about the "$Config['UserFilesPath']" and "$Config['UserFilesAbsolutePath']" variable into the "config.php" file (browser and/or upload), and nothing works.
If anyone have a solution to put every uploaded files into the same directory, I'm very interesting in.
and I'm not the only one.
I use fckeditor alot for my custom written cms's ... so it's great to see it within joomla now...
The joomlafckconfig.js file can be customised too. So you can select which toolbar icons you want to show/hide. Rather than using the custom ones that JoomlaFCK provides...
And one thing, i don't know it mess up my with my template in FF, but it's OK on IE. Problem with template ? uh, I don't know, I don't have any experience in programing...
one problem though, it seems like whenever i save my stories/articles with this editor, it removes all my indents at the beginning of each paragraph! very annoying, so i can't use it for now. hopefully this will be fixed in a future version... i couldn't find where to post this bug on their site, so im posting it here... hope they see/fix it!
However It will be nice that there is a configuration section for Administrator to change the "image" path so that it share the same path as "files". By doing so, It will allow user to group the document and image together under the same directory.
+ very stable (din't have any problems/errors during test)
+ ease of use (good feature is the right-click menu)
+ easy to setup
+ seems to let your HTML code untouched
- uses outdated HTML code (formatting should be done by CSS)
- no XHTML (or am I overlooking something?)
- missing feature to insert internal links pointing to existing content
JoomlaFCK is a very good editor for small (non professional) pages. For professional/commercial pages I can't recomend due to the fact it's using outdated HTML and no XHTML.
1) You can upload picures from your desktop straight into articles. For this reason alone you should use this. It makes authoring articles so easy. No clumsy mosimage interface or having to get out of an article to upload a picture from joomla eXplorer.
2) Automatic Borders and placement of pictures at upload!
3) Embedding of Flash !!!!
4) No Script errors, its its clean programming. So many of the editors have scripts problems with various browsers.
5) Its fast, initial load takes a few seconds but after that its fast.
Just Download it already and blog to your hearts content (pun intended)
It works very well, and is very straight forward.
I had minor setup issues so am posting this for others.
The site link to download is confusing.
For Jooomla 1 the link is
Tick the box for the file & then Download Selected.
Once you have the file (1.zip) you need to UNZIP IT to find the file >> bot_JoomlaFCK120.zip
