    The WYSIWYG Editor Demo from Hell

    As a member of the Sitefinity team, Rich Text (WYSIWYG) web editors are literally the core of my world. These tools are the pipe through which most web content flows. They allow people—who know nothing about the HTML—to create HTML. However, the sad truth is that most WYSIWYG editors are worse than awful. In fact, I heard one CMS analyst refer to them as the “Achilles’ heel of CMS.” Frequently buggy, they’re renowned for allowing atrocious HTML to spill into the website.

    RadEditor for MOSS (SharePoint 2007) Discontinued as of Q2 2012

    Microsoft is going to end the mainstream support for SharePoint 2007 (MOSS) on October 9th, 2012 (see on the official support lifecycle page), we also stopped the development of RadEditor for MOSS, just like we followed suit with the support for .NET 2.0.

    Formatting content with RadEditor for ASP.NET AJAX just became easier

    One of the new features coming up in Q1 2012 for the RadEditor control is a new drop-down tool called "Format sets".

    A better way to view images in RadFileExplorer for ASP.NET AJAX – thumbnail view comes in Q1 2012

    Starting with the Q1 2012 release, the RadFileExplorer gets a new display mode - thumbnails. In this mode the grid with folder and file details is replaced with a listview, which shows the current folder in a display similar to the Windows File Explorer's medium icons view. The best scenario for this new display mode is when you want to display thumbnails of image files - these will be shown instead of the default image file icon we have in the control. Other supported files (e.g. office documents) will show up with normal icons.   The size of the thumbnail icons...
