Strip Image and Anchor Paths


You may require that URLs (both href and src) are expressed as full paths, instead of the default relative paths.


RadEditor includes a new content filter MakeUrlsAbsolute that makes all URLs (href and src) in the editor content absolute (e.g. http://server/page.html instead of "page.html"). MakeUrlsAbsolute is disabled by default. To enable this filter, assign the filter to the RadEditor ContentFilters property:

protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
    if (!IsPostBack)
        RadEditor1.ContentFilters = Telerik.Web.UI.EditorFilters.MakeUrlsAbsolute;
Protected Sub Page_Load(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As EventArgs)
    If Not IsPostBack Then
        RadEditor1.ContentFilters = Telerik.Web.UI.EditorFilters.MakeUrlsAbsolute
    End If
End Sub

StripAbsoluteAnchorPaths and StripAbsoluteImagesPaths properties are no longer available in favor of the new MakeUrlsAbsolute filter.


By default, an image path might look like the following example when viewed in HTML edit mode:

<img alt="" src="/images/mydownloads/WebPages001.png" />

With MakeUrlsAbsolute assigned to ContentFilters the path now shows the full path:

<IMG alt="" src="http://localhost:49573/images/mydownloads/WebPages001.png">
