Change the RadEditor Features Scope

Q: How do I change the scope of the RadEditor features so they can be activated from the Site Collection features.

A: You need to remove the features, change their scope, and finally install them again:

  1. Open a command prompt on the server and execute the following commands to remove the features:

    stsadm -o uninstallfeature -name RadEditorFeatureRichHtml -force

    You should see Operation completed successfully.

    C:\>stsadm -o uninstallfeature -name RadEditorFeatureRichText -force

    You should see Operation completed successfully.

  2. Open the feature definition files and change the scope attribute from "Web" to "Site". The files you need to edit are:

    C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\web server extensions\14\TEMPLATE\FEATURES\RadEditorFeatureRichHtml\Feature.xml

    and

    C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\web server extensions\14\TEMPLATE\FEATURES\RadEditorFeatureRichText\Feature.xml

    Open them with a text editor and change the line:

    Scope="Web"

    to

    Scope="Site"

    Save the changed .xml files

  3. Install the features again:

    stsadm -o installfeature -name RadEditorFeatureRichHtml -force

    You should see Operation completed successfully.

    stsadm -o installfeature -name RadEditorFeatureRichText -force

    You should see Operation completed successfully.
