I built a new site in Joomla 3.4.5 with JCE editor 2.5.11. When I tried to upload an image in the JCE's image dialog, it failed with "Upload Failed: No Data". Unlike this case, this error occurs for every image, not just some. I checked in the source code (row 823) that JCE thinks the image file is empty, so it probably fails before reaching the JCE file check.

So I tried to upload the image in backend (media manager). In complains about files being too big instead. The limit is set to 10MB and I tested this with image files of several tens or hundreds kB, so there must be some bug. But how to correct/ workaround it?

EDIT: after upgrade to Joomla 3.4.8 and JCE to 2.5.14, the error message in the frontend changed to [object Object]. The error in the backend is still the same.

  • Why would you build a Joomla site with an old (and vulnerable) version? First, start with the latest Joomla and JCE Editor. Review System Information / Permissions.

  • @Anibal: I installed it with 3.4.3 several months ago and didn't have time for testing a backup since then, so I was afraid to upgrade. Now I checked again and I did some upgrade, it's 3.4.5 now. Joomla 3.4.5 and JCE 2.5.11 isn't so old, is it? I take it as an encouragement to backup and upgrade my site though, even if connection with this bug was unlikely.

  • @PavelV. There have been security vulnerabilities that are easily exploitable with recent versions of Joomla. You should update to 3.4.8, which fixes them all

    Are you seeing a javascript error in the browser Error Console when attempting an upload? Have you clear you cache browser? Commented Mar 5, 2016 at 20:26

    @PavelV. Please also update JCE Editor to the latest version (2.5.14) as the issue you have may have been fixed.

1 Answer 1


@Lodder and others were right that the answer was to keep site up to date and be patient. The error was corrected in JCE 2.5.15.

  • Glad it was as simple as a quick update :)
