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
I would be 100% happy to have made the switch to JCK if it wasn't significantly slower than my previous editor. Also, the fact that if you don't click exactly on a line, it sends you off right at the top of the post is really annoying.
I guess that I will continue to use it anyway since once again, it if pretty useful and good looking too, but I wish it were quicker (both load and operation). I know that the developer claims that it is fast but I am afraid that in my case, it is not (I am using it bare-bone with no extension).
Hiya, Thank you for your review and comments.
We was not able to replicate the issue you mentioned, but would be more than happy to assist you. As so we can please post a message on our forums as so we can reply to you.
Regarding speed; as you rightly point out, from our tests it is the fastest loading editor on the JED. If you enable the Spell as you type feature, it can appear to slow down the editor. That is because the editor is checking your spelling as you type. We feel that this slight delay is out weighed by the advantages. However, please feel free to turn that feature off.
I hope that helps.

First off, make them one install, a plugin & management component.
Second, if you update a the manager file, make sure Joomla's extension manager can install it. I was getting a missing file error. Recent version updated 3 days ago and the core install file is missing?? I installed a previous manager, install worked but 500 errored when I went to admin it. I was able to install the current version of the manager over the previous using the installer(which must be separate) no 500 error. New manager version installed - no more 500 error. Why was this so difficult? Again, the management component & editor plugin should be installed as one!
Lastly, installed on a subdomain. Why is the manager looking for my template files in my main domain using the "system check" feature to setup the editor! I can't even begin to think of using the commercial version or wanting it if the free one doesn't work out of the box!
Uncomplicate it, then bundle it, then beta test it until it works perfect. The other popular editor has always worked right out of the box for me, using it for the past 3 1/2 years.
Hiya, thank you for your comments, but there are reasons why our editor and component works as it does. Firstly the editor comes shipped with a number of plugins. As such we can not combine the component as on some customers websites it exceeds the maximum upload limit. Hence we are forced to keep them separated.
Joomla's extension manager sadly does not do everything we need it to. As such we had to extend it and add in our functionality. This allows the JCKEditor to have more flexibility which in turns allows you to tailor your editing experience to your requirements. We feel this out ways the additional click or two required to access our extension manager.
We have tested the editor in a vast number of website configurations including subdomains. However, if you believe you have found an issue, please raise a thread on our forum and we will be more than happy to help.

Hiya, 22.214.171.124; the version of the editor you are using is three years out of date. A lot has changed since then!!! This old version has a version checker which is no longer supported. Our website has a solution to fix it. From our tests version 5.1, which has recently been released, has been tested and is the fastest loading editor on the JED. Furthermore version 5.1 contains a vast set of new functionality which allows you to further personalise your editing experience. May I suggest upgrading. After all it is free. I hope that helps.
In testing we found that the editor loads much faster in real-time comparison, however, running the editor with our JCK plugins installed will increase the load of the editor. Also running the editor with two or more spell checking tool enable is a performance drain!
For me this is the only bad aspect of the component / product.
Hi Mediastreet, the PHP code plugin is now J! 2.5 compatible! I hope this will ensure you of our continuing efforts. (o:b
I was having problems with JCE editor, i had blank screen after installation and couldnt solve the problem. However, i found this JCK component which does almost exactly the same as JCE and bug free!
Thanks for the developer - you saved my life!!! Very happy :-D
However it is published as Non-Commercial.
According to my experience testing in the website it seems to be the best one.
Thank you for your review. The JCK Editor is free and will always remain free! We also provide a free component (JCK Manager) which allows users to install the wide range of the free plug-ins we have developed for the editor.
Under these terms it qualifies as a fully working Non-Commercial commodity as it is completely free for all!
However, we have developed a few commercial extensions for the 'JCK Editor' which allows our paying subscriber to enjoy a fuller and professional editing experienced. The monies generated by these extensions helps fund the project which is non-profit.
The file browser was often disabled (is disabled for security reasons), and Upload was return "Object not found!".
(1)Thank you for your review but I am struggling to understand how anyone can claim that our editor is slower than JCE! Having performed a number of objective tests I would argue that our editor is much faster, fact it is in a totally different class when it comes to performance! If you can provide us with a test case I would be happy to look into your claim.
(2)There was an issue in with Version 3.4.7, two working days after we released 126.96.36.199 with a fix for the file browsers. Also this message could be due to your files and folders permission.
