This release fixes a large number of bugs reported by users since the release of JCE Pro 2.8.1
In addition to these fixes, a few improvements have been made to existing features.
Search for files and folders in the File Browser
The Search tool in the File Browser will now return a matched list of files and folders. The search query also accepts wildcards, and a search for specific file types can be made by specifying the file extension, eg: .jpg
Expanded URL Conversion Options
The Relative URLs parameter has been replaced with a new URL Conversion parameter which sets how or if you want local URL values to be processed. There are 3 options available:
Relative - The site's protocol and domain are removed from the URL
Absolute - The site's protocol and domain are added to the URL
None - The URL is left as it is
The new option can be found in Editor Profiles -> Editor Parameters -> Cleanup & Output.
Media Preview Toggle Instructions
A new label on the Media Preview element explains how to toggle the Media Placeholder, using a CTRL (CMD) + Click, so that alignment and resize functions can be performed.
This next major release of JCE Pro focuses on enhancing user experience, by adding a new high contrast toolbar theme, tweaking colour contrasts across the editor to meet WCAG 2.1 AA standards, and improving keyboard navigation in the editor toolbar and dialog boxes.
In addition to this, a number of exciting new features have been added, aimed at speeding up content creation with new Quick Link and Quick Media tools for link and media insertion, and assisting in building more complex responsive layouts with Columns. The Media Preview displays your Youtube and Vimeo videos right in the editor, and new Template Manager options make creating and inserting custom HTML blocks quicker and easier.
Improvements to the Code Editor see the addition of code-folding, and Search in the File Browser now digs up to 3 folders deep to find the image you are looking for.
JCE Pro 2.8.0 is available to download now, but as this release includes some major changes, it won't be available to update via the Joomla Updater for a few days.
