We always value our users input. We’ve taken on board and brought to life your ideas for how to make our editor even better.
You felt encumbered by scripting CSS and custom editor stylesheets. We’ve listened and developed Joomla’s first Stylesheet parser to do all this work automatically. Your editing area will always look just how you want it.
You wanted greater control over the editor’s ‘Style and Format List’. We’ve listened and made it possible to define exactly what you want.
Joomla Evangelist, Paul Franklin, unpacking Ark's "Inline-editing" at the 2016 JWC in Vancouver.
This 'click anywhere' and 'edit anywhere' feature, already present in other CMS', has long been awaited by Joomla users. It makes editing articles easier and simpler as it negates the need to go to an admin interface to edit a web page.
Our team is home from Vancouver, Canada, and the Joomla World Conference 2016.
It was great to network, to see some old friends and make some new friends. It was encouraging to learn that media converage was the biggest the JWC has ever received, and to learn that Joomla's strong community spirit has weathered recent storms and come out fighting!
The ARK Editor (formally known as the JCK Editor) is a WYSIWYG editor designed to simplify your content editing. It incorporates a brand-new technology called ‘Inline Editing’ that allows it’s users to compose page elements directly, without the need to use a special editing screen. For this reason it can transform Joomla sites and make them incredibly easy-to-use!
We are especially thankful to those who have contributed. Your feedback and support has enabled us to deliver our first general availability release.
We are rebranding ourselves to ‘ARK’ and have put together this new website which will support you a whole lot better.
Some of you may be asking why, well here’s a bit of history! The JoomlaCK Editor was officially launched in September 2005 on extensions.joomla.org with the aim of providing a user friendly HTML editor and was the 90th extension to be listed. Some years later Joomla set about protecting their name brand. The knock on affect meant that our products name was abbreviated from ‘JoomlaCK’ to ‘JCK’. As you can see this wasn’t our ideal but nevertheless we realised that there was good reason for this change of direction.
