Using columns to create responsive horizontal layouts

Columns New!

Creating horizontal layouts of mixed content - text, images and video - can be a real challenge, and often requires digging into the source code and a good understanding of css, or at the very least of the features of your template's css framework!

Columns simplify this process. By using a generic set of Flexbox css styles, or your template's css framework (Yootheme UIKit and Bootstrap 4 currently supported), you can now quickly create simple horizontal block layouts of equal sized columns for any content. Add a minimum stack width to create more responsive layouts for mobile devices, and use a set of pre-defined Layouts for different size configurations.

  • Create links to images, documents, media and other common file types.
  • Include a file type icon, file size and modified date.

Are there any licence restrictions? What if I want to use these plugins on multiple sites, do I need multiple subscriptions?

No, there are no licence restrictions, except those imposed by the GNU/GPL 2 licence. A subscription is not a licence purchase either, so you are free to use the editor on as many Joomla! sites and on as many domains as you choose.

What happens when my subscription expires? Can I still use JCE Pro?

When your subscription expires you lose access to our restricted Services, including downloads of all versions of JCE Pro, updates to the latest available version, and access to our support services. You can still use the version you have downloaded and currently have installed for an indefinite period, but you will need to renew your subscription to download a new version of JCE Pro and get updates.

My subscription has expired. Can you send me the last version that was released during my subscription period?

No. The JCE Pro Subscription grants you access to download the latest available version of JCE Pro Editor and a limited set of past releases, and to update to the latest version via the Joomla Updater. When your subscription expires you lose access to these downloads and updates.

Can I get a refund if I'm not happy?

A subscription purchase is not a purchase of an individual plugin or set of plugins but access to certain sections of this website including file downloads, therefore refunds will only be granted If issues with the available extensions that results in the inability to use the extension or a feature of the extension cannot be resolved with direct or indirect support (forum posts, e-mail **, available documentation and other support articles) or incidental patches and official updates to the plugins or core extensions, and where such issues are not the result of incorrect use by the user, a server or Joomla! configuration or conflict with a 3rd party extension.
