  • JCE Pro 2.6.0 Released

JCE Pro 2.6.0 has been released!

This release marks a milestone in the development of JCE with the integration of the main JCE Plugins with the JCE Editor in a single extension package.

Apart from this, there are a number of important changes and great new features.

Get JCE Pro!

UI Refresh

The editor toolbar has had a minor makeover, with a slight increase in button size and a few colour changes, while retaining a familiar look.

Toolbar refresh

Dialog boxes are now styled using Yootheme's excellent UIKit CSS framework.

Editor Tabs

The Source Code and Preview views have been moved to tabbed windows, activated from the tabs above the editor toolbar.

Image editing everywhere

The image editing features previously restricted to the Image Manager Extended, are now available in all dialogs where images can be shown, including the Image Manager Extended, File Manager and File Browser.

And yes, that includes the File Browser available from the media fields in the Joomla Article Manager Images and Links tab!

Image Editor improvements

Image Editor FX
The Image Editor interface has been improved, with new effects added, including Brightness, Contrast, Hue, Saturation, Sharpen, Blur and Gamma adjustment.

The usual Resize, Crop and Rotate transforms are also available.

Resize to new files on upload

pro upload suffix

Resizing images on upload can now create new images of different sizes, applied to all images in the upload queue, or from sizes set for individual images.
The first set of values are applied to the original image, with additional values creating a resized version of the original, with the values appended to the file name, eg: sparrow.jpg would become sparrow_640_480.jpg when resized to 640 x 480.

Each resize option can also have a suffix added, for easier identification of the file. Perfect for creating images for responsive design... 

Responsive images with srcset


The new Responsive tab in the Image Manager Extended makes creating true responsive images with the srcset attribute super easy. Set the device pixel ratio, reference width and re-order with drag & drop. 

Downloadable files with the File Manager

File Manager download attribute
Taking advantage of the new download attribute for anchor tags, the File Manager can now create downloadable file links (where supported by the viewer's browser), by setting the Target option to Download.

Embed files with the File Manager

File Manager embed
Embed options in the File Manager have been extended, allowing you to embed a file using an iframe, with the option to display the content via the Google Docs or Office Apps viewer.


Markdown support has been added to the editor and can be enabled by checking the Markdown option in Editor Profiles -> Features & Layout

Enable Markdown

Markdown support includes Headings, bold, italic, lists, strikethrough, code, blockquote and images.

Styles Filter

Styles Filter
UiKit and Bootstrap are great CSS frameworks with tons of useful classes to style and construct content, but finding the right class in a long list can be a real pain. The new Styles filter makes finding the right style as simple as typing in a few letters.
