    When upgrading to the latest release the RAD Editor for list items has to be activated for each site and subweb in WSS.

    There are ways to do Bulk modification of SharePoint sites using stsadm but you will have to remember to turn it on everytime a new subweb is created.

    Question: Is there a more practical way to turn on the RAD Editor for all list items in WSS?

    Regards,
    Fredrik Haglund


    Example how to get a list of all subwebs:

    "c:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\web server extensions\12\bin\stsadm.exe" -o enumsubwebs -url http://sharepoint.stockholmpride.org > c:\temp\subwebs.xml

    And how to use this list to activate RAD Editor in all subwebs:

    FOR /F %s IN (c:\temp\subwebs.txt) DO "c:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\web server extensions\12\bin\stsadm.exe" -o activatefeature -name radEditorFeature -url %s

    FOR /F %s IN (c:\temp\subwebs.txt) DO "c:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\web server extensions\12\bin\stsadm.exe" -o activatefeature -name radEditorFeatureIE -url %s

    Hello Fredrik,

    When you upgrade the RadEditor for MOSS you need to re-activate the editor features only on one site (any site or subweb). After you deactivate and then reactivate the features on the site, restart the SharePoint application. After that, the editor will become available in all sites where the feature is activated.

    If you have not activated the RadEditor on all sites and still want to make the process easier, you can change the features scope and activate them at the site collection level. Here is an article that explains the process - http://www.telerik.com/help/radeditormoss/Change_the_RadEditor_features_scope.html. This way you will need to activate the features only once for the whole site collection and the editor will become available on all sites and subwebs.
