Today we have released a preview of the new RadEditor Prometheus provider for DotNetNuke 4. The provider configuration remains basically the same, so people should have no problem enabling and configuring the new editor in DNN.

The installation for the new provider is greatly simplified. We tried to eliminate most of the manual steps, which were required with the original RadEditor HTML editor provider. Basically, the provider now comes packaged as a module PA, so you can install and enable it directly from the web site. Detailed installation instructions (both for the automatic and manual installation) are available in the distribution archive.

The first thing that you will notice is that the new editor does not have a RadControls folder. All the important files are stored in the ~/DesktopModules/TelerikWebUI/ folder. Since DotNetNuke defines CSS for some global HTML elements (such as anchors, list items, etc.), we have included an extra CSS file, which will fix the editor skin to look OK in DNN.

Finally, here is the link for the new editor provider:

The download contains the provider, a text file with installation instructions, and screen shots of the installation procedure.

The provider will be officially released when we finish with the rest of the Prometheus controls integration in DotNetNuke - navigation skinobjects, upload module, calendar skinobject and module.
