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.
There are some compatibility issues with IE10. You need to be in IE10's "compatibility mode" (emulate IE9) in order to browse and upload media and to insert line breaks in the editor. A small inconvenience that I hope the JoomlaCK folks will fix soon.
Thank you for the review. Just to let you know that the latest release (JCK Suite 6.1) now comes with support for IE10 (standard mode).
Dear Tim, Thank you for the 4 stars. There is a setting called ‘Auto Format Source’. If you turn it on it will keep your line breaks upon saving. Hope that helps.
Thanks for the positive review! And I am delight to hear that you have just found us and love using the editor! I presume that you are using the JCK Media Embed which has become a very popular extension for our editor. All the best. Paul.F
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

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.
