Where to get JCE MediaBox?

Go and get the latest version of MediaBox :

Install JCE MediaBox

Some misunderstood that JCE MediaBox should be installed via Components > JCE Administration > Install

If you try the above method you are going to receive an error message:

Extension Install: No JCE Plugin file specified

We can tell that JCE MediaBox is a plug-in of Joomla, mean that JCE MediaBox is able to work without JCE Component. Of course to use JCE MediaBox more easier, install JCE Component before installing JCE is a must.

We must install MediaBox via Joomla standard installer:

  • Log into your Joomla back-end as a super administrator
  • Extensions > Install/Uninstall
  • Upload Package File :: Click on "Browser..." button to locate the file "plg_jcemediabox_xxxx.zip" (eg. plg_jcemediabox_1010.zip)
  • Click on "Upload File & Install" button to upload the file from your computer then install it.

After successfully installed, you will see the belove message:
