[Solved] Joomla JCE editor displays as plg_editor_jce in global settings

Selection lists in the toolbar might also display things like "advanced.h1" and so on.

The cause of the problem seems to be translation files for the JCE editor of an older version are read only which prevented them from being updated to the newer version. 

Solution: 

  1. Uninstall JCE editor. Go to the menu Extensions -> Extension manager -> Manage. Filter the extensions by entering "JCE" in the filer field. About three lines will be filtered out ("Editor – JCE", "JCE editor" and "Quick Icon – JCE File Browser"). Select all three and click the Uninstall button. 
  2. Using FTP access, go to the language folder and into the folder of each language you have installed in the system, like sv-SE for Swedish for example. Delete the file sv-SE.com_jce.xml in each folder (sv-SE is corresponding to the language folder you are working in so unless you are using Swedish, your filename will not begin with sv-SE but something else).
  3. Now go to the administrator/language folder and into the folder of each language you have installed. Delete all files beginning with sv-SE.com_jce* (and again, unless you are dealing with Swedish, your filename will not begin with sv-SE but something else).
  4. Go to Extensions and reinstall JCE.

In the global settings, you will now find "Editor – JCE" instead of "plg_editor_jce".
