Upgrade Instructions from version 4.x to version 5.x

Follow the steps below to upgrade RadEditor v4.x to RadEditor v5.x:

  1. Uninstall the 4.x RadEditor for MOSS solution (remember to back up your custom settings/code before uninstalling)

  2. Install the 5.x RadEditor solution

  3. WCM - add a bindingRedirectelement in the web.config:


         <assemblyIdentity name="RadEditorSharePoint" publicKeyToken="1f131a624888eeed" culture="neutral" />
         <bindingRedirect oldVersion="" newVersion="5.x.x.0" />
  4. Lists - re-activate the List Editor feature on at least one site and recycle the SharePoint web application (restart IIS)

  5. Web Parts - add a SafeControl element for the old version of the editor in the web.config.For example, if you are upgrading from version 4.54:


    <SafeControl Assembly="RadEditorSharePoint, Version=, Culture=neutral,
        PublicKeyToken=1f131a624888eeed" Namespace="Telerik.SharePoint" TypeName="*"
        Safe="True" />

Known issues:

The new RadEditor control has been developed to work exclusively in pages with XHTML doctype. By default, the MOSS pages do not use a doctype. This means that there will be minimal visual glitches with the editor. We have fixed most of them by overriding some of the styles in the editor skins.
