    I am using sitecore 6.6 which is using Telerik RadEditor control as the Rich Text Editor field type. Presently, It generates output as XHTML; I want the output to be HTML 5. Is it possible to make this change?

    Any suggestions will be appreciated.

    Hi Dheeraj,

    By design RadEditor generates XHTML compatible content and does not provide a built-in functionality for generating HTML5 compatible one.

    In order to achieve a similar functionality I could suggest that you modify the content of RadEditor by implementing a custom content filter to strip/replace the undesired tags and attributes. You can find more detailed information on how to register custom content filter in the following live demo and help article:

    I have an upgrade from site core 6.5 to site core 6.6. All the rad controls were a part of the site core upgrade process. There is version upgrade for site core telerik controls. The upgraded versions include the following dlls


    version details 2012.2.607.35 date modified: 31/01/2015

    The web user control of the sitecore 6.5 worked fine with the earlier version of telerik controls. However this user web control does not work with the upgraded telerik control. The query raised ... should a redesign for the web form needs to be done to consume the new version of telerik(referred above) for the user control?

    Hi Hemant,

    We do try to keep our controls backwards compatible and the following sticky thread lists all known issues and changes: http://www.telerik.com/forums/known-issues-and-important-changes. You should not need to redesign your pages or rewrite your code after an upgrade.

    Generally, an upgrade of our assemblies is a straghtforward procedure that only requires that you update a few assemblies and their project references: http://docs.telerik.com/devtools/aspnet-ajax/installation/upgrading-instructions/upgrading-a-trial-to-a-developer-license-or-to-a-newer-version#upgrade-to-a-newer-version-of-telerik-ui-for-aspnet-ajax.

    We do not support the SiteCore environment, however, and I cannot say whether there is something specific they add to the situation (e.g., fully qualified references that may require a bindingRedirect element). I, therefore, advise that you contact their support team for help with this case.

    I also feel obliged to note that the 2012 version you have is extremely old and does not support modern browsers like Chrome, Firefox, IE10, IE11 and I strongly advise that you look for ways to upgrade to the latest (2015.1.401 at the time of writing, with Q2 2015 due to be released shortly).
