    We are migrating our SP environment to 2010 version. In the old MOSS2007 we used custom Webparts inheriting from RadEditorWebPart, and were setting some properties of the ContentEditor at runtime. 
    Now, during the tests for compatibility with SP2010, we've seen that some of them are not supported anymore.

    It would important for us to know what are the equivalents or other possibilities for the following settings:
    • ContentEditor.StripAbsoluteAnchorPaths
    • ContentEditor.StripAbsoluteImagesPaths
    • ContentEditor.ConvertFontToSpan
    • ContentEditor.AllowThumbGeneration

    Thank you very much in advance for your help!
    kind regards,

    1) The StripAbsoluteAnchorPaths and StripAbsoluteImagesPaths properties are obsolete and there is no equivalent for them in the ASP.NET AJAX version of RadEditor for MOSS 5.x. In addition you can review the following forum http://www.telerik.com/community/forums/sharepoint-2007/lite-editor-for-moss/relatives-links.aspx.

    2) The ConvertFontToSpan filter is enabled by default. You can disable it, if needed, by modifying the respective ConfigFile.xml or ListConfigFile.xml, which are located in the /Program Files/Common Files/Microsoft Shared/web server extensions/wpresources/RadEditorSharePoint/5.x.x.0__1f131a624888eeed/Resources/ folder. Add the following code:
    <property name="ContentFilters">RemoveScripts,MakeUrlsAbsolute,FixUlBoldItalic,FixEnclosingP,IECleanAnchors,MozEmStrong,ConvertToXhtml,IndentHTMLContent</property>

    More information on the ConterntFilters property you can find in the following online help article http://www.telerik.com/help/aspnet-ajax/contentfilters.html.

    3) The AllowThumbGeneration property  is not available in RadEditor for MOSS. The thumbnail generation is enabled by default.
