JCE editorWelcome to this article from UsingJoomla.com

The default Joomla installation includes an editor for creating new articles and editing existing articles - this is great because this allows you to make a start on creating your Joomla website.

Here at UsingJoomla.com we have a recommendation for a different editor to the default Joomla editor.

Once installed you can choose / set this new editor as the default editor in your site administrator area Global Configuration.

So - what and where is this editor ?

JCE Editor (JCE: Joomla Content Editor) has two versions:

  • Core - Free
  • Pro - Paid

The JCE core (free) version offers a good selection of functionality, while the JCE Pro (Professional) version offers added functionality not found in the JCE core version.

All articles on UsingJoomla.com - including this article - have been written using JCE Editor (Pro).

Pop over to JCE for an overview of the Linking SmallJCE Editor.

We endeavour to be accurate

Precedence should always be given to the official Joomla Content Editor (JCE) website
