    Hi,

    I've recently installed RadEditor on our MOSS 2007 server as described in the installation guide. The RadEditor webpart and the list integration works great, but I got problems integrating the editor within the pages templates of publishing sites like "ArticleLeft.aspx". Of course I follwed the instruction of the installation guide (http://www.telerik.com/help/moss/editor/using%20radeditor%20in%20web%20content%20management%20scenario.html)
    but it didn't work for me.

    When I enter into the editor mode of a page and click onto the area of the page content, no editor appears. In IE the normal MOSS editor apperas even if you just move the mouse over the page content area. What am I doing wrong?

    I hope someone could give me some adives or tips.

    Best regards,
    Florian

    Hello Florian,

    I tested the current RadEditor Lite build in MOSS 2007 with the ArticleLeft.aspx layout and managed to replace both rich HTML fields (page content and image caption) with RadEditor.

    If you do not see the normal page layout (see attached screenshot) when you open the page in SharePoint Designer, try editing the page in the browser first, then refreshing the folder where the page is in SP Designer, and finally opening the page layout for edit.

    Hello Lini,

    thank you for your answer, finally I was able to get the RadEditor running within the content management pages. I simply used the wrong page template. Although I'm running a German version of MOSS 2007 I had to edit the ArticleLeft.aspx instead of the German ones (ArtikelLinks.aspx).

    Best regards,
    Flo

    I have a bit of the same trouble. I have the lite version of the RadEditor installed on a Sharepoint server, however when trying to setup through Designer I continue to get an error. I also followed the instructions at:
    http://www.telerik.com/help/aspnet-ajax/using-radeditor-in-web-content-management-scenario.html

    That is not working for me. When I create a new article page using this page layout I get the following error:

    An error occurred during the processing of . Could not load file or assembly 'RadEditorSharePoint, Version=4.5.4, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=1f131a624888eeed' or one of its dependencies. The system cannot find the file specified.

    I've checked and verified the lite version we have installed is 4.5.4. Any insight would be appreciated.

    Thanks, Craig

    Hello Craig,

    Check if the following steps will do the job for you.

    1. Open a page in the Microsoft Office SharePoint Designer 2007. Select the page you wish to modify and choose Edit Page Layout.

    2. At the top, after the default SharePoint Register tags add the following registration line:

     <%@ Register TagPrefix="radE" Namespace="Telerik.SharePoint.FieldEditor" Assembly="RadEditorSharePoint, Version=4.5.4.0, culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=1f131a624888eeed" %> 

    3. Replace the tag of the default editor <PublishingWebControls:RichHtmlField ... >  with the RadEditor tag:

    <radE:RadHtmlField id="Content" FieldName="..." runat="server"></radE:RadHtmlField> 


    I hope this helps.

    Kind regards,

    If you don't want to use SharePoint designer, you can simply edit the Page Layouts in C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\web server extensions\12\TEMPLATE\FEATURES\PublishingLayouts\PageLayouts folder and add the tags as mentioned in the help file :)
