JCE Plugins


Some of you may have come across this error in the JCE Administration Component Control Panel recently. This is nothing to be alarmed about, as it occurs because the new site is not yet offering a news feed which would be displayed as it was before, in the Control Panel.

There seem to be a few bugs still in the PHPBB3 forum bridge that are causing some nasty errors for a few users when logging in on the frontend or the forum. I hope to have this resolved as soon as possible.

UPDATE: Is this issue resolved? I made some code changes to some of the bridge files and I haven't had any complaints for a couple of days now...

This site is in the process of a slow and painful process of a migration to Joomla! 1.5. Things will look messy, dissapear, reappear and then dissapear again, break, stop working, work again, change color and probably $$#??0&õ

Please bear with me. I'll try an keep the disturbance to a minimum.
