  • JCE Pro 2.8.13 released

This update fixes a number of issues reported since the last update, and adds a few new features. In addition, various updates have been made to improve support for Joomla 4 Beta.

Simplified Dialogs

A new Basic Dialog option has been added for the Link, Image Manager and Media Manager buttons, which replaces the standard dialog window with a stripped down version, containing only a URL field, as well as a Text field for the Link version, and a Description field (for the alt attribute) for the Image Manager. This option is disabled by default. A further related option enables a File Browser in the URL field for the Image Manager and Media Manager.

Template List Thumbnails

When createing Template List items in the Template Manager parameters, you can now set a thumbnail image to use for the Template List dropdown, to give an indication of what HTML content will be inserted by the item. Alternatively, any image with the same name and in the same folder as the template item html file, will be used instead.
