JCE Just Released New Admin Component & Plugin

Postby yaanimai » Sat Nov 07, 2009 3:36 pm

JCE just released a new component and plugin that fixed the Advanced Code Editor issue. It no longer shifts the HTML code in the popup window.

Captions work just fine for me also.

Further info to htaccess...

So, I uncommented 3 lines

Code: Select all

## Deny access to extension xml files (uncomment out to activate)
<Files ~ "\.xml$">
#Order allow,deny
Deny from all
#Satisfy all
</Files>


I causes switching off of XML parser... Manually, I put it on. Works...

Also, I found an alternative

Code: Select all

## Deny access to extension xml files (uncomment out to activate)
RedirectMatch 403 (?:/plugins/[^/]*/[^/]*|(?:/administrator)?/(?:components|modules)/(?:com|mod)_([^/]*)/(?:(?:com|mod)_)?\1)\.xml$


Can anybody comment it and say which is better?

I uncommented the 5 lines below

Code: Select all

## Deny access to extension xml files (uncomment out to activate)
<Files ~ "\.xml$">
Order allow,deny
Deny from all
Satisfy all
</Files>
## End of deny access to extension xml files


Is this correct? Or is grayz post correct?

To yaanimai:
To check if it works, try to access the following URL
YOUR_SITE_ADDRESS/components/com_mailto/mailto.xml

If you see the XML information, it does not work.

Problems with the caption.

Hi guys I have problems with the caption of the images after upgrading to version 1.5.15, some notion that it can be??, I've searched the forum, google .... I can not find any clear answers, we see that the problem as the last update of TinyMCE.
Greetings and thank you very much

So far, I've seen where the error comes up in the gallery in the new update from 1.5.14 to 1.5.15. In the folder media / system / js / caption.js. To leave the man on the 1.5.14 version works perfectly.

1.5.15 fresh install with JCE editor

Just posted JCE Editor issue here:

viewtopic.php?p=1923862#p1923862

Definitely something not quite right here. Suspect something in 1.5.15 core is not accepting change when default editor is changed in Global Config.

EDITED....
I withdraw my issue with JCE. Turns out my editor setting for user was overriding my global config. setting. JCE and 1.5.15 appears to be working properly on a fresh install.

I had problems with Expose gallery component & the new .htaccess lines that restrict access to xml files. I don't think you can use those lines of code in the .htaccess file if you use Expose gallery.

I had white blank space in the front end where the gallery should have been & the Manage Albums in the back end was blank in the Expose component.

I had to comment those htaccess lines out. Backup my img, xml & config folders in the com_expose/expose directory. Uninstall Expose, reinstall Expose. Ftp the img, xml & config folders back into the com_expose/expose directory.

Now it all works well again.

It is possible to use the htaccess new xml obfuscating even when some components need an xml to work correctly by creating a specific htaccess in this component's folder.

I thought this 1.5.15 update was just a security release. Since upgrading, my Joomla site has sped up significantly...like 2-300% faster. Did I miss a mention of speed enhancements somewhere along the line?

hello everybody

I get some problem with last JCKeditor plugin after upgrade....When I want edit an article I get the follow error:

Error loading "http://www.mysite.com/plugins/editors/fckeditor/fckstyles_template.xml" (HTTP Status: 403). Do you want to see the server response dump?

It is the new htaccess rule making this problem...If I uncomment the rule all work well...I don't see nothing on Jckeditor site talking about that so I have open a thread in they forum...but don't hope to get a real feedback because I don't have paid membership...

Anyway right now I will keep the rule uncommented...

yes thank !! :) :) In fact I just try right now and it work well.... I must tell to JCKeditor forum to make the change in their next release...

But just for be clear...Except the fact hackers can see what joomla version we run by reading the xml file what are the eventual other risk ??? It is not better to simply disallow the xml file where we can read the version and allow all other xml ??

dotcom22,

I think it disallows reading the xml files of the extension versions not the Joomla version (some older extensions might have security vulnerabilities). That is why some extensions don't work with it.

Friends after I made the migration from Joomla! 1.5.14 to 1.5.15 started to have problems with CSS Caption (caption of the photos) I am 5 upgraded sites experiencing the same problem since I modified the CSS cpation and nothing changes. What is happening is this: when the caption should go too long for the second line it simply does not break and take along the background. below is my CSS:

/*---------------------------*/
.caption {
margin-right: 2px;
background-color: #F2EEE7;
color: #838383;
}

.img_caption {
float: left;
background-color: #F2EEE7;
font-size: 95%;
margin: 3px 12px 3px 0;
}

/*---------------------------*/

.img_caption.left {
/*display:table;*/
margin-right: 1em;
width: 300px;

}

.img_caption.right {
/*display:table;*/
margin-left: 1em;
width: 300px;

}

.img_caption.left p {
clear: left;
text-align: center;

}

.img_caption.right p {
clear: right;
text-align: center;
}
/*---------------------------*/

I could only keep the legend that added width to 300px, but this image needs to be 300px wide if you add a 150px image with a caption is passing. I tried to use: auto and 0 and 100% but does not solve anything. I'm racking my brain a few days now with this. If anyone can help me thank you very much.

Thank you for your attention :D

rikaryo,

That's weird because I have Joomla version 1.5.15 & use the JCE editor & the JCE caption plugin. I did a test & if the caption goes to two or three lines the background colour expands & extends with the text also with no problem. I am using:

JCE editor component 1.5.7
JCE plugin 1.5.5 JCE
JCE Utilities 2.2.4
JCE Captions 1.5.3

JCE released a new version Nov. 7th after the 1.5.15 upgrade. Did you download & install it?

rikaryo,

Oh, the JCE editor (free) works great, but the caption plugin is a subscription plugin. I have been a JCE subscriber for a couple of years now & it is well worth the money for the Image Manager Extended, Captions, Advanced Link, Media Manager, Template Manager & File Manager plugins.

Hopefully one of the Joomla team can help solve this problem for those that use the captions with the default Joomla editor.

Can you tell me how you got your caption to go to the next line? I'm experiencing the same problems you are.

Friend could solve by modifying the CSS scheme mentioned above by friend "infograf768"

See templates / system / css / general.css

It has one more line of CSS

/ * Caption fixes * /
. img_caption.left (
float: left;
margin-right: 1em;
)

. img_caption.right (
float: right;
margin-left: 1em;
)

. img_caption.left p (
clear: left;
text-align: center;
)

. img_caption.right p (
clear: right;
text-align: center;
)

- Below is the new line to add CSS - -> add a comment on this line, eliminating the implementation
/ *. (img_caption
text-align: center! important;
) * /


A temporary solution to get a new fix is add width: 250px: width for the image. Img_caption.right and. Img_caption.left

with this every image has to have 250px wide

So i should just add this:

/ *. (img_caption
text-align: center! important;
) * /


Thank you :) Hope I did it right.

The .htaccess update, to block direct access to XML files, is quite brutal because I've noticed it stops Google from spidering my XML sitemaps.

Does anybody know how to write an exception for the "fix" to allow access to specified filenames e.g. sitemap.xml, news-sitemap.xml etc?
