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
+ 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
BTW - somebody made a note about having to modify some url code in the original php file for the editor to work properly with IE7. I have IE7 installed and it worked straight out of the box for me.
After a lot of searching on google - I ran into the documentation of the fckeditor on www.fckeditor.org. Here everything started to clear up.
in the mambot file fckeditor.php I replaced the line:
oFCKeditor.BasePath = "$mosConfig_live_site/mambots/editors/fckeditor/" ;
oFCKeditor.BasePath = "/mambots/editors/fckeditor/" ;
It seems the reference with the site included breaks everything. Now I've got a working FCKEditor integrated with my joomla installation. Tested in both firefox and ie7.
Thanks for a great alternative to TinyMCE
The only thing I would suggest to make this easy to use product better is maybe touch up the look a notch. Other than that it does what any editor needs to do.
We looked at JCE but had more joy with FCK
What I am expecting from this editor is that in a near future let me change the font type. I think that with that feature, it will be a complete tool for html edition
But doesn't do anything in Opera. Opera is a great browser, it has the ability to spell check every textarea before submitting, so it is the ideal browser for maintaining a CMS. When will JoomlaFCK support Opera, any ideas?
