Captions 2.1.10 released

Posted in Latest News

This update fixes the "responsiveness" of captions so that they are now responsive when the image or caption container is aligned left or right (using the float:left or float:right css style).

The structure of the caption now looks like this:

<span class="wf_caption" style="display: block; max-width: 400px; width: 100%;"><img src="/images/flower.jpg" alt="Flower" width="400" style="width: 100%; margin: auto;" /><span style="text-align: center; display: block;">Flower</span></span>

These changes are supported on all browsers tested (Firefox, Chrome, Edge, Safari, IE >= 7). IE6 does not display the caption and image correctly, stretching both to the full width of the parent container. It may be possible to fix this using IE6 conditional css (suggestions welcome!), eg:

.wf_caption {
    display: inline-block !important;
    width: auto !important;
}
.wf_caption img {
    width: auto !important;
}

Changelog and Download

The Captions Add-on can be download from Your Account page or from the Downloads section.

JCE Mediabox 1.2.0 released

Posted in Latest News

New Media Player 

This update improves audio and video handling, replacing the Adobe Strobe Media Playback player, which is no longer maintained by Adobe, with a Flash based media player based on the one used in the MediaElement.js library.

HTML5 Media Shim

In addition, a media shim option has been included which will provide a fallback for browsers that don't support mp4, flv and mp3 media (embedded using the HTML5 <video> and <audio> tags), using this new player. This is disabled by default, and can be enabled in the Mediabox parameters:

JCE 2.5.10 released

Posted in Latest News

Update: JCE 2.5.11 has been released to fix an error in the Remove Image EXIF data parameter value. 

JCE 2.5.10 has been released. This update adds a minor change to the way uploaded files are validated, and adds an option to remove EXIF data from uploaded image files.

Removing EXIF data

An option has been added in Editor Profiles -> Editor Parameters -> Filesystem to remove EXIF data from JPEG and PNG images on upload.

Remove Exif


This option is disabled by default, but unless there is a specific reason to retain EXIF data, we recommend you enable this option, as it is useful for 2 reasons:

Security

Removing the EXIF data from JPEG images removes any malicious code that could have been added by a user. Obviously this is not an issue if you know and trust your user!

Anonymity

Did you know that the EXIF data in an image can contain information about where the image was taken? Smart phones and some cameras that contain GPS can tag images with the GPS location of where the picture was taken. Removing the EXIF data removes this information.

JCE 2.5.3 released

Posted in Latest News

JCE 2.5.3 has been released. This is an important security update.

Security Update

A vulnerability has been reported in the JCE upload routine that could allow a privileged user (in this case one allowed to use the editor and upload files), using the right tools, to upload a php file to the site by intercepting and altering the upload request data. The upload destination is limited to that set in the editor profile ("images" by default).

This vulnerability was introduced as the result of a mistake in the code in JCE 2.5.0 and affects versions 2.5.0, 2.5.1 and 2.5.2. Versions prior to this do not appear to be affected, but all users are requested to upgrade to 2.5.3

Thank you to Fábio Pires (https://twitter.com/fabiopirespt), Vitor Oliveira (https://twitter.com/r0t1v) and Filipe Reis (https://twitter.com/fjreis) from INTEGRITY Portugal for reporting the vulnerability and verifying the fix.

Upgrading to JCE 2.5.3

Upgrading to JCE 2.5.3 is quick and easy. If you are using Joomla 3, you will be notified of an available update after logging into the Administration.

Updates Available

Click on the View Updates button. A list of available updates will be displayed. Select JCE Editor, then click the Update button.

Update

If you are using Joomla 1.5 or Joomla 2.5, you can upgrade using the Updates dialog in the JCE Control Panel.

Click on the Updates Available button.

JCE 2.5.0 released

Posted in Latest News

UPDATE

JCE 2.5.1 has been released to fix a bug where some elements, eg: <em>, <i> were removed if they had no attributes.

JCE 2.5.0 "Stable" has been released. This update includes a number of changes and bug fixes. Thank you to everyone who tested the Beta and Release Candidate versions.

Changes to core file packaging

Some time ago we introduced a method to combine and compress the editor's javascript and css files, resulting in a single javascript or css file for the browser to download. This generally results in improved load performance, as the browser only has to download one file.

Some users have found, and reported, that for some reason or other, this feature does not work on their site, or they choose not to use it. We have therefore done some of this combining when the extension is packaged, resulting in fewer javascript and css files in the extension, and therefore fewer files to load by the editor and add-ons.

Enabling the compression options will still combine these files into a single javascript and css file.

New Features 

Three new features have been added in this release:

Form Elements for Custom Styles

It is now possible to create a Custom Style with a form, input, button, fieldset or legend tag.

Total Files and Total File Size limits

You can set the total number of files the File Directory Path (and its subfolders) can contain, as well as the total size of this folder in Editor Profiles -> Editor Parameters -> Filesystem. This restriction is applied when the user uploads a file.

total filestotal file size

"Mixed" Doctype

A "Mixed" Doctype option is available in the Editor Global Configuration and is the default setting on new installs. This option sets the HTML schema the editor uses to included HTML4 and HTML5 elements and attributes.

Posted in Latest News
