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
Recently I began to have problems with pages breaking when users edited using the IE browser, so I went looking for something new and found these new developments.
I am so happy! I unstalled my older version (2.6.2) and installed the latest version and it not only solved my IE editing problems, but it is better than ever. So far I just love it. Thanks to the developers for all the work on this and for making it available!
Very usable and intuitive interface...
The drop down called styles... is that a place where I can put my own CSS style classes/IDs for easy access?
If so That is ACE and can't wait to learn how to use it! Would make my life soo much easier.
In the new release of Joomla FCK, there are problems with border of images.
It does not show them when you want. So you always have image without border.
Thank you for the five stars, regarding your question you just need to add a style to the image or update your template.css file to put the border around image the automatically.
I have one issue, however.
I recently purchased the extension JEvents, and part of how this works, is that registered users of your site get to add an event to a calendar using the editor I have set up for the site.
The problem is that this looks fine in FireFox, but it looks very very big in Chrome. It's not following the boarders.
I've talked to the Jevents people, and they suggested the issue is with the editor.
I used a few other editors to see if these conformity issues would happen: they did not. The problem is most likely with the editor. I really like the JCK editor, and don't want to change editors over this one issue. But I just might have to. Any one know of a fix for this?
Thank you for your review. We have been unable to replicate the error you described. If you would like any assistance please do not hesitate to contact us via our support forum.
I then took the plunge to switch to JCK, and why I did not do it earlier I do not know.
Even the members of our club who tired it said they find it very easy to use. For a small charge I will now expand with the add-on's. Thanks for a great editor
Thank you for your kind words :o)
Used this with Joomla 1.5.x sites and trialling 1.6.x development. Recent addon updates have just put the cherry on the icing. Took a little effort to make the switch but now a core feature of site installation and development. Saves a lot of time and effort as well as looking good.
The documentation is a trifle sparse but it is not difficult to figure out how to utilize.
Top class addition to Joomla :)
Thank you for your kind words :o)
As an advanced user, it has all the tools I need.
For my clients its an easy to use and very powerful tool for them to build their content pages.
The new tool bar is cleaner and more intuitive.
If you haven't tried it, download it now and enjoy.
Dear dontregartha, thank you for your kind comments.
Dear simkense, unfortunately our pre-release version did have one or two issues which have all have been corrected. Try downloading the new ‘3.4.6 Stable’, like thousands of others I am sure that you will not be disappointed!
The software works without flaw
and performs exactly as described.
Thank you for contributing your excellent work.
And thank you for volunteering. All the Best!
Dear GNA Director, thank you for your kind words. We aim to please! Did you know we have released a new file browser, JCK Explorer!
Insert just about anything in WYSIWYG
Of course anything this complicated is not without minor flaws, but overall a must for a joomla install
Works best with firefox and update your java
I realy like jck because of some of advance features like content templates. But it lack some image styling function in contrast to JCE.
I am waiting to see a compatible version of jck for joomla 1.6.
Dear bluexp, we are now 1.6 compatible and so too is the component and a number of our plugins! Thanks for your review :o)
I'm very glad that I did. This is really an awesome piece of work so far and with the plugins for it, it becomes even better.
Thank you to the dev(s) for making this, and a big thumbs up. :)
