    Hi,

    I want to know how and where the MOSS RAD Editor content will be stored?Will RAD Editor maintain any own database or will it be stored in MOSS content database ? Will it maintain versions?


    Thanks,
    Surya

    Hi Surya,

    The WCM Field editor and Lists (wikis, blogs) editor actually have no content storage - instead they use the already available publishing field (WCM) or the list column (Lists) to store their content. This means that when you uninstall the editor, the content will not be lost and you can use the default MOSS content editor to change it.

    The RadEditor Web part is different - it stores the editor content in the web part storage. This means that if you uninstall the RadEditor, content in the web parts will be unavailable until you install the editor solution again. The content will not be lost unless you close or delete the web parts. However, you will not be able to see the content if the editor is not installed - the web parts will show just an error message.

    Upgrading the editor is covered in the following help topic - http://www.telerik.com/help/radeditormoss/Upgrade%20to%20a%20newer%20version%20of%20RadEditor%20for%20MOSS.html. You will not lose any content when you upgrade to a new RadEditor for MOSS version.

    We are looking at deploying the RAD Editor in our MOSS envrionment. We have it up and running in a development and POC environment. As part of our project we need to address the concern in the scenario of "what is we decide to stop using the RAD Editor and either go to another editor or revert to the out-of-box (OOB) editor in MOSS 2007, what happens to our data?".

    Based upon the answer above, I am not completely clear in terms of understanding the impact to content (data) if the RAD Editor is completely uninstalled and we revert back to the OOB editor. The two scenarios I see are:

    (a) Where the Telerik editor is enabled in content editing such as for list items, wikis, blogs, etc.... and the affect in removing the RAD editor in that respect.

    (b) In replacing the Content Editor web part in MOSS with the Telerik control, what happens to the data in that regard.

    In our case, the chance of us reverting or changing down the line is small, but it is a risk which I must address as we move forward in this project.

    Hello Stephen Heverin,

    Regarding the entered data uninstalling RadEditor for MOSS will lead to the following resul:

    (a) If you are in list items, wikis, blogs, etc.... scenario  the content will not be lost and you can use the default MOSS content editor to change it. The reason for this is that the WCM Field editor and Lists (wikis, blogs) editor actually have no content storage - instead they use the already available publishing field (WCM) or the list column (Lists) to store their content.

    (b) If you are in a web part scenario the content will not be lost unless you close or delete the web parts. However, you will not be able to see the content - the web parts will show just an error message. If you want to preserve the content you will need to create new web parts and move it to them.

    Thanks,
