We have updated the Telerik editor provider for Community Server to use the new RadEditor from the ASP.NET AJAX suite. The new provider is available for download from the following URL - http://blogs.telerik.com/Libraries/Stoyan_Stratev/RadEditorWrapper20080623.sflb?download=true (deployment instructions are included in the archive).

 

There are some major changes in the new provider. I will list them here:

1. ScriptManager - since the new editor is built on top of the Microsoft ASP.NET AJAX Extensions, it requires that the System.Web.Extensions.dll assembly is either in the bin folder of the CommunityServer web site or in the machine's GAC. You do not need to add a ScriptManager control on the pages you plan to use the editor. It will be added automatically (if needed).

2. Resouces folder - the new editor stores most of its resources (dialogs, skins) in the Telerik.Web.UI.dll assembly. However, we still need a RadControls folder in the Community Server provider for several reasons - to store the RadSpell dictionaries, configuration files, etc.

 

3. Localization - if you want to change the editor language, you need to extract the localization files (.resx) in the App_GlobalResources folder in your CS website.

As always, we would appreciate your feedback/suggestions for improving the provider.
