Updating the JCE Content Editor

The JCE Content Editor is a little bit different from other 3rd party extensions.

You will be notified of the availability of a JCE Component or JCE Plugin update via the Extensions: Update screen.

But not of the availability of a commercial JCE Addon (Example: Image Manager Extended).

Commercial Addons are instead listed in JCE's own Extension Updater screen as they become available.


How to update JCE Content Editor Addons

Select Components > JCE Content Editor from the top menu of your website's Control Panel.

Updates for any JCE Addons should be highlighted.

Perform a FULL backup of your website (database & files) before you update Joomla! extensions.

Extension updates can potentially break your website.
