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
This review is specific to the version as installed in Joomla 3.0 which I am trying out in a non-production site.
JC Installed okay but when I edit articles the tool bar does not break into multiple lines on the screen...it is stretched across the entire screen, hidden in part, behind other drop downs.
I cannot scroll far enough to the right to make using the editor useful.
I tried to note this problem in the form but found I cannot even use their forum unless I send them money even though the editor is a free product.
A search found no similar reports of such errors.
Assuming someone finds and fixes this I also assume CK will be the same great product it always was. I am just disappointed in the lack of a forum. It seems to me to be a bad idea to charge people for a customer support forum where those who use it are providing their feedback free to other users. If the forum were staffed by actual paid technicians working for CK that might be different. I just object to charging people to post free advice that may or may not be accurate or even fix a problem.
Dear stuffdone, we value our user’s feedback very much and that why we do in fact have FREE area on our support forums as suggested. Here are 3 threads that users have recently post in our free‘Community support’ area all of which were replied to this morning: http://tiny.cc/j3qdow, http://tiny.cc/l5qdow & http://tiny.cc/r6qdow. Please note this is not hidden away, in fact it comes 1st sitting above our profession support forum for this very reason.(o:b
First, it was extremely easy to install. Although there is ample documentation available for JCK, I did not need to use it for the installation.
Second, I have never experienced errors are failures with the product. Therefore I have never need to use the product support, but I know that it is available if it is needed.
Third, the editor runs fast. It really speeds up the article writing process.
Finally, There are many add on for this product. I particularly like the file browser add on. It give an "Explorer" like look at your content files.
I'm sure you too will enjoy using this one.
Dear cakin1947, thank you for your in-depth analyst and review our service. I’m sure many users will find your comments very interesting and helpful! (o:b

Many thanks author :D
Dear X.Y.J., thank you for taking the time to show your support and recommend us. We are delighted hear that you are enjoying it.
Good work Team Joomla CK Editor. Will now be testing all the free plugins you are providing.
Dear Nalin, We have done a lot of work to make our editor supported with other extensions and frameworks so we are delight to read of your of the lovely review.
Hi Dan, it’s great to have some positive feedback about our beta release! The good news is that we done just that and embed even for functionality in the stable release and with the new arrival the JCK Manager you will be able to do even more…
i hope it does, because the rest of it is great.
Thanks pablopp83 for your comments. We have been working on the new 3.0 compatible version of the editors component. We have made a number of changes that we think you will like. Regarding the component being multilingual, please request it via our forums and we can see what we can do!
I am using joomlaCK editor 5.2 in my joomla website.
When i am using Firefox then sometimes editor not loads.But when I moved to Safari without an issue and then later in the day was able to use Firefox again. THAT'S THE ISSUE - the editor sometimes works and sometimes doesn't.
Hi prashantb423, thank you for the 5 stars. Software doesn’t stop working and then magically start working again because of this we can rule it out as a likely cause. Most modern browsers use isolated tab browsing, which can eat up memory. This does two things: In the event of a page crashing, you only lose the tab of the page that crashed, as opposed to losing the entire browser. The other unfortunate side effect is that it creates a heavier CPU usage.This could explain why it stopped working in Firefox (due to running low recourse running low) and then starting working again at a later time and that it is also working in Safari. Try these trouble shooting tips which I hope will help: http://www.joomlackeditor.com/installation-guide?start=11
Dear Robert, thank you for your support. As you have noticed the editor’s CK API Engine is renowned for handling and respecting user code. As the both JCE & TinyMCE use the Moxiecode our editor is a real alternative.
Dear Anarresti, thank you for your long standing support. We are working very hard to get the news out and therefore your review is warmly welcomed.
Thank you for your review. We like you think it is the best editor for Joomla. As such we have added a new demo page; allowing people to try the editor before they install it.
bot_joomlaFCK was release a long time ago! Thank you for your review.
Thank you for your review. We have made a vast number of changes to help make JCK a real WYSIWYG editor. I am glad to read that you think our hard work has paid off.
It is absolutely amazing, how such a powerful product can be offered for free!
What really convinced me about JCK, is the fact that this editor can properly handle HTML - whereas other editors sometimes get hickups at this point.
Furthermore, JCK's performance can be extended via a large portfolio of plugins - really looking forward to check them out. For now, already the basic free version of JCK offers much more then I currently need.
Have not tried their support yet, but I appreciate the fact that they to video tutorials on their page.
I highly recommend this editor to Joomla beginners and advanced users at the same time.
I'm glad the video tutorials have helped. We have added a number including "how to install the editor" for those who are new to Joomla. We try our best to make the whole process as easy and as straight forward as possible. I am glad that it has helped.
PS, have you tried 5.2? It has some great new features including drag and drop uploading for HTML5 compatible browsers.
Mark and the JCK team.
