Introduction

Editors

The ARK Editor (formally known as the JCK Editor) is an WYSIWYG editor designed to simplify your content creation. It incorporates a new technology called Inline Editing that allows its users to edit page elements directly without the need to use a special editing screen. For this reason it can transform Joomla sites and make them incredibly easy-to-use!

Its user familiar due to its modern Windows Metro like interface yet configurable enough to be used for enterprise developments. Allowing for customisation and shaping in virtually any direction. This could be from creating bespoke toolbars to adding functionality with new plugins, content templating and typography and with the setting up of user permissions and user folders.

It's licenced under the General Public License and aims to be a community resource that embodies the Joomla project and its values.

Amazing. Just....amazing.

Ease of use
For all this does, and it does a lot, it's actually rather intuitive. Very well thought out.

Support
I went a few months on the free version, and still got the equivalent of pro ticket help.

Documentation
Not much needed, but it's just as well thought out as the UI. Clean, well done.
I used this to: After using it in trial mode on several sites, I bought the full package as it solved so many problems *my clients* were having editing their sites. It even works on the front end, - in the core component! - which is Joomla's biggest weakness.

Functionality
Extensive, perhaps more than I need

Ease of use
Very ease an intuitive
I used this to: Editing content. It is better than the editor that comes with Joomla! when it comes to uploading and adding media to articles.

A ton of functions, probably more than you ever need. I only used a limited set of buttons in the editor.

Installation was easy, no errors. Configuration was easy.

Excellent. The facility to have different toolbars in different scenarios is brilliant. For example, a simple toolbar for front end editors.

Ease of use
Very good. Covers all the bases. Some difficulty in getting different configurations to stick.

Support
Just out of an issue where support was exemplary.
I used this to: Not-for-profit public and internal resource sites.
Owner's reply: All the best with the non-profit project!

Makes SEO score 7% worse

Functionality
When I first used it, it seem great. Later I noticed that front-end modules loading and SEO slowed by 7%. Removed it and score is higher

Ease of use
Yes, it's very easy to install and use. However, uninstalling requires some effort. There are SEVERAL plug ins and then the components.
I used this to: Backend editing
Owner's reply: Hi Web Dude, I hope my reply will encourage you to rethink, assure you of our support and perhaps you may even consider revising this review.

FUNCTIONALITY
With regards to the SEO the editing state is only active when you are logged in on your Joomla website and have the editing permissions to edit. With adding any new functionality there will of course be a memory footprint but as the inline editing is only there when you are logged in as an editor, and isn’t presented when your website is in its normal state, it shouldn’t have any SEO impact. If you somehow tested this in an editing state, then you could have received a false positive. If this wasn't the case, then please contact us and we will be happy to look into it for you.

EASE OF USE
Our editor is plugin based which allows for user permissions to be set in this way. It allows greater flexibility in keeping with Joomla’s logic, but you shouldn’t try to uninstall the editor on a plugin by plugin bases. Nowadays Joomla’s installer supports ‘Packages’. All you need do is to select the Ark Editor package & it will uninstall it for you in one go, please see our documentation on this: http://tiny.cc/wvx5hy

Many thanks, Paul F
