I manage quite a few Joomla sites and following a stint of updates I've noticed that the Toggle editor button is missing on sites with JCE 2.9.32 Joomla 3.10.11.

jce toggle

I had some sites which I was yet to update so tested the Joomla update first, which did not remove the editor button, the JCE update did. I checked the changelog for JCE and didn't see anything relating to this so I wanted to get some feedback from others before reporting a potential bug. It's a feature I use quite often.

    @mickmackusa I guess I have been MIA. Thanks for noticing. Not intentional just haven't had any strange requests or issues of late....thankfully. I think I have most of my customers stable...although I'm sure there will be a new influx with the J4 migrations.

I ran into this issue some versions back. You can configure the toggle switch in your JCE Profile.

In the Joomla back-end: Components > JCE Editor (Pro) > Profiles > select the profile that you are using > go to the [Features & Layout] tab > set Editor Toggle to Yes.


Just an update to this, I contacted JCE and they advised the toggle is now only available in the pro version.


The Toggle Editor button is now only available in JCE Pro.

You can access the HTML code in JCE Core by clicking the Code tab above the editor toolbar.

Thank you,

It's no biggie really I guess, I've just been so used to it, the code tab just seems to display a different font/font size. I'm a creature of habit.

I hope this answer is of use in case anyone else is also a creature of habit.



Actually u have to go to component> JCE pro> Profiles> Default> features/layout > scroll all the way down till Editor State > turn it on :)

  • Welcome Morgan, Thank you for your input - my update does state that the toggle is now only available as part of JCE Pro - it was previously available in the free version. You seem to be using JCE Pro which gives the extra options.
