Includes advanced Image, File and Link handling, plugin support, and an Administration interface for editor configuration.


Lots of functionality out of the box and far extends the default TinyMCE plugin that comes with Joomla.

Ease of use

Extremely easy to use. Easy to setup and very easy for the end user to control and edit their content


Excellent support from Ryan. Thanks!


Excellent documentation, presentations and tutorials on how to use it to its fullest extent.

This is a truly excellent tool. There are so many options from an administrator's point of view! I can make sure my authors can't go wild using all kinds of colored text, or placing images where they don't belong. I can create profiles for different kinds of users, for both front and backend. Perfect tool for linking, inserting images and everything. No wonder it won awards! I'm really happy!

I liked it and today I can't believe all the work that has been done the JCE team.

What amazed me:

I really appreciate the fact that I could drag picture on the editor which automatically save it into the ftp, incredible.

What could be improved:

implement JCE with a a kind "link preview" (like facebook) would be incredible. The "link preview" code has been written in gitub by LeonardoCardoso, it would be awsome to include it in JCE!

JCE is brilliant, I have just remade over 400 static pages in Joomla and the JCE helped tremendously, especially with the image uploading and resizing. I’d recommend this extension to everyone!

I don't understand all those happy people speaking about this editor. It is stripping out pieces of code. Pasting into your code it's own nonsenses. No settings helps in editor parameters, nor in joomla backend. When You consider, that this is for client, which is non-programmer, and not for You - developer, usability of this editor is very small. Joomla needs editor for people, which has not technical skills, and with good user experience.

BTW: This is the only bad rewiew, that I wrote.

No.1 choice!

I'm administrating a few Joomla websites & I use JCE for ALL of them! sophisticated, user friendly, RTL friendly, .... to save your time, the whale package!

I have been using JCE for many years now, and besides being the best content editor for Joomla! (in terms of features/compatibility/quality of generated markup), it comes with great support from the team. Highly recommended.

Fantastic Extension

I have been using JCE for several years now, I am so happy with this extension that I went for the subscription for the addons (Dunno if I am allowed to say that but I salute the developer anyway!).

It is superb, masses of useful functions, it is compatible with all versions of Joomla and in the years I have used it and I have had VERY few cross browser compatibility issues and it even notifies of available updates via the joomla installer

Thank-you Ryan

Worth every penny! :-)

All joking apart this is an exceptionally good replacement for the bundled editors.

Being new to Joomla I'm still getting used to the various features; navigation and links in particular. JCE really does take the pain out of creating internal links something that was beginning to cause me something of a migraine.

Unlike one or two extensions I've tried it installed seamlessly and within seconds of the upload I was working with it.

Great stuff!

JCE has been installed on every single Joomla! site of ours for years... an absolute must-have.

Great component, active support forum... excellent all around.
