I want to implement jquery.Jcrop.js in a custom extension.

Because this look great! Jcrop

And it's bundled with Joomla, located under:

And it's used in:
administrator\components\com_templates\views\template\tmpl\default.php administrator\templates\hathor\html\com_templates\template

But it looks like it's not working when used in a template. See image.

enter image description here

Does anyone have an idea how to implement / or where it is used in a Joomla extension?

This error I believe is due to the following console log error:

SyntaxError: missing : after property id

trueSize: 469,159]

It currently a bug in Joomla. I'll have a quick look through the code to see if there's a fix, but it might be an idea to report this bug to the Joomla-CMS repository on Github.


I've fixed it. See the Pull Request
