The HTML editor seems to have but two color: blue and red. Not very handy for complex markup.

If you have been looking for an editor that respects your code and text, while being "smart" enough to help you do your work the right way, well, RockPad is the way to go or at least give it a try. With this editor I feel confident in publishing content without surprises of "editor added code" while saving.

This is a great editor, probably the best pure HTML editor for Joomla. It may not appeal to the beginners or the ones who hate markup, but who likes and needs HTML editing, it's the best option.
It has indentation, find and replace, color coding, AJAX saving and so on. If you use Editors like Notepad++ and Sublime in your everyday work, you need this.
It would be great if you guys offered a simple WYSIWYG version of it, with a toggle to the source, so we can use it in our clients sites and still get a great and clean code. But maybe I'm asking too much ;)

This plugin is great for developers before launch. If you have a lot of HTML an a articles this helps a lot. I use this for super admin or admin and another editor for non-admins.

- AJAX save. I don't hit the original Joomla save button and wait for the page to reload. saves time and steps.
- color code
- saves line breaks (Easier to read)

- more color coding would be nice
- Would be nice if it was more integrated with Joomla (no image

I wish it played nicer with Virtuemart, but this plugin/editor is one of the first things I install on a new Joomla 1.5 site.

I really love this editor. Gives me so much control over the content. I can add flashobjects without being afraid an editor will strip it down so that it is not working anymore.

Since Rockettheme release this, I've used nothing else. It's not perfect, but far better for my ancient work flow style. Hand work etc.. Not liking wysiwyg editors, this is a major plus for my work.

Add this plus firebug, gedit, and web developer plugins for Firefox and your down the road in style. Or style sheets.

Thanks for the code!
