Web Content Management Scenario

Telerik Web Parts for SharePoint 2010 last build was R1 2023 SP2 and is discontinued since then.

Telerik RadEditor for SharePoint 2010 can be easily used as a cross-browser rich-text editor for Web Content Management in SharePoint 2010. In order to replace the default editor in a page template, you need to perform a one-time modification using SharePoint Designer 2010. All content which has been authored through the default editor will be preserved and accessible through the Telerik RadEditor for SharePoint 2010.

Enabling RadEditor for WCM Scenarios

NOTE: Once the RadEditor for SharePoint 2010 features are activated, they will affect only the current site. You need to activate the RadEditor features for each site individually. If you want to change the scope of the features, see the following article - Change the RadEditor features scope

  1. From the Site Actions menu go to Site Settings

    Figure 1: Selecting Site Setting from the Site Actions menu.

  2. Click Manage site features in the Site Actions column.

  4. IMPORTANT! If you still see the default editor or a simple textbox after you activate the RadEditor feature(s), you might need to open a command prompt window and type iisreset to reset the Internet Information Server. This will prevent problems caused by caching.

  • Open a page in the Microsoft Office SharePoint Designer 2010. Select the page you wish to modify and choose Edit Page Layout.
