The recent Joomla! 1.0.13 release/update has caused a few problems with a whole host of extensions, and unfortunatley JCE was not left unscathed. Fortunately, the effect seems to be localized, and as it turns out, not too difficult to fix (once I found the where and why!).

Problem: If you click on a file/image name in any of the Manager plugins, you are redirected to the Admin login screen.

Reason: Not too sure why, but the 2 simultaneous ajax requests to index2.php causes the logout. 

Solution: Force queuing of requests so only 1 is processed at a time. 

Download the zip file below, unzip contents (utils.js and utils_src.js) over original files in  mambots/editors/jce/jscripts/tiny_mce/libraries/jscripts. Clear your browser cache. Open the plugin window and refresh using CTRL+F5 (this is very important as it clears out the old javascript files and forces a reload of all files).


JCE has recently received a number of important updates, as well as the long awaited return of the Template Manager (now a subscription plugin).

Updates include:

JCE Editor Mambot 1.1.4

winter.jpg The JCE Utilities Mambot has also received an update, in fact it has been  largely rebuilt, and is now base on the Mootools powered Slimbox

It works better, and all browsers (IE6, IE7, Opera, FF, Safari, Camino) should now work properly.

I addition, the mambot will also add zoom/popup indicators to popup images and links.


All updates available in the downloads section. There is also a bundle for members that includes everything currently available.
