    I would like to disable the RadEditor built-in content filter "ConvertTags" globally rather than in code or markup.
    Is this possible? (In the ConfigFile.xml perhaps?).

    thanks in advance

    Hello Michael,

    Unfortunately the config files does not provide possibility to control the built-in filters of all RadEditor controls. I recommend using the ASP.NET theme and skins feature to globally configure the desired controls.

    Another possibility would be implementing a custom Client-side method, attached to the Page_Load event, the logic of which is to find all editors on the page and disable the desired filter. You can examine the following customization as example:
    <telerik:RadEditor runat="server" ID="RadEditor1" OnClientLoad="OnClientLoad">
        Sys.Application.add_load(function () {
            var radControls = $telerik.radControls;
            var editors = [];
            for (var i = 0; i < radControls.length; i++) {
                var control = radControls[i];
                if (control instanceof Telerik.Web.UI.RadEditor) {
            disableFilter(editors, "ConvertTagsFilter");
        function disableFilter(editors, filterName) {
            for (var i = 0; i < editors.length; i++) {
                var editor = editors[i];
                var filtersManager = editor.get_filtersManager();

    Hi Ianko,

    Thanks for the response - adding the custom client side method seems the simplest option for me and worked well.
