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.
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?
Changed editor to JoomlaFCK immediately after install!!!
yet, it's ALWAYS FCK that doesn't mess with code.. I've done stuff where ONLY FCK could save my head...
the REAL best fact [for me] is when I run a copy of it on my localhost server 'standalone', and if you get INTO fck it's SO available once I figured out how it works for folders and stuff. This way I can do edits like in dreamweaver WITHOUT totally contadicting the template's style sheets and overrides and stuff...
Anyways: not brilliantly said here though I wrote MAINLY cause the people who do FCK and our own fabulously on it JoomlaFCK Team should be gettin' a LOTTA pats on the back..
What would life be without fast action on updates and all for FCkeditor...?
best wishes to ALL
maphew (April 6, 2006) maybe downloaded the wrong file. The mambot is available to download form this page but not the Homepage of FCKeditor, instead, the homepage provided the source code.
1 - Lack of granularity for toolbar administration.
2 - the "width" setting in the mambot admin area is useless in that it sets the width but it cuts off the toolbars.
1 - Seems to leave the html code alone.
2 - Simpler text formatting options than "TinyMCE".
While the code is clean, JoomlaFCK is still lacking in a few areas. First, the only options to customize the toolbar buttons are a 'basic', 'compact' and 'advanced'. These provide more or less buttons as stated, but the lack of individual control is frustrating. Thankfully, the editor loads quickly even with the 'advanced' setting.
JoomlaFCK is a quality editor that has some appealing features. Above all else, it has the cleanest code output I've seen in Joomla editor. Secondly, it supports skining to match your site template. Last but not least, it is fast and stable. There is an occasional resizing issue or two, but for the most part it works as intended.
It is worth noting that JoomlaFCK doesn't really have much in the way of administrative customization. It is not overly easy to define sytles, headings or the like. MOSce editor beats JoomlaFCK in this respect. None the less, FCK is an editor you should try and keep and eye out for. Hopefully with time a little extra polish will make this mambot an all-star.
4 out of 5 stars.
