I have been using one of the most popular editor and have a problem in one of my website. When I found out about the JCK Editor, I downloaded and installed without any problem. It is working as advertised. I fully recommend this excellent editor.

Excellent features via plugin set - especially for including code (HTML, PHP, JS, CSS). I'm using it on J1.6 and loving it. Great range of powerful extensions such as spell checker, image editor, auto-save, version control.

Need a professional Editor?
Need a lot of background coding(CSS included) and to be sure how is going to look on the page?
Just re-size the editor as needed and you will save the 60% of your time just refreshing the target page.
I'm using it on Joomla 1.6.3.
Everything is easy and at hand, even a CSS editor plugin!
Thanks a lot for this extension!

I had the premiere of my website which is based on the Sobi2 component last week. At the start I had the JCE Editor included in the form of Sobi2. However, said Editor causes problems. I had to find a solution for this problem within short time. I tried JCK Editor and it was working out out of the box. This Editor saved my day !!! And after having a closer look at the JCK Editor I have found out that it fits to our needs best. Thank you!

I've tried all the editors and have been using this one for years. For a while there were no upgrades available and I couldn't find it to download, so I kept using the copy I had.

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!

In the past i've had to install 3-4 different extensions to get what this editor can do in one go!

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

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.

Over-all, I really like JCK Editor.

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?

For months now I had problems with JCE and many forum discussions later, still no joy.
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

Switched from a JCE subscription and went for the JCKeditor subscription to get the additional features with the subscription plugins. (Very good value and well worth the small outlay)

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 :)

I've used JCK and its predecessor FCK for 18 months now and I've only switched to another editor once, and then only for 5 minutes.

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.

Well done.

Just the best content editor for joomla! Nothing to add!

The basic functionalities are not working in all circumstances with Joomla 1.6 (eg in combination with RSevents and RSforms). Some plugins, for which you have to pay for, are not working at all in Joomla 1.6. Please provide the label "1.6 compatible" only when the development is ready for it.
Owner's reply

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!

Finally, don't have to switch between editors on the fly...JCK editor does it all.

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 used both this editor and jce.
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.
Owner's reply

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 just downloaded and installed this editor today and I have to say that so far, it is excellent. I was a bit stuck on some other editors which were giving me a few problems (but overall good), until I ran across this one.

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. :)

There is no doubt JCK Editor is the best. I think JCE is outdated.
