JCE v TinyMCE

The default content editor in a Joomla! CMS website is TinyMCE.

If you choose to install the JCE Content Editor then you will need to assign it as the DEFAULT EDITOR in the GLOBAL CONFIGURATION screen of your website control panel.

You should also check that the Default Editor is the one assigned to each User.

Drag & Drop

Both JCE and TinyMCE support Drag & Drop (since the advent of Joomla! 3.5).

When editing an Article you can simply drag an image from your device into the Content Editor panel.

Images dragged from your device will be stored in the root of the IMAGES directory.

JCE also enables you to drag & drop images to a specific IMAGES sub-directory when you use the Image Manager.

Using the Content Editor

Use whichever content editor you like best to edit website content in the Front End or the Control Panel.
