We are building modules for a DNN 4.8.4 installation with the 2008.Q2 RadControls.  We have the RadEditor working very well as a Provider.  We are using a custom configfile.xml and all is working well.

The issue is we also want to include the RadEditor in our modules.  We are able to include it just fine - but this version of the RadEditor (meaning, the non-provider version) apparently no longer uses the config file and instead uses themes.

We figured this would not be a problem, so we created an App_Themes folder at the root of our DNN site, added a theme directory along with a skin file.  Then, in the web.config, we added theme="OurThemeName" to the "pages" directive.  Then we removed everything from the RadEditor declaration in the module ascx except the id, runat and then added a skinid (pointing to our specific skin) attribute.  However, this apparently is not the right way to do it as the editor is not picking up the settings we have within the skin.

Can you please provide the steps and settings needed within a DotNetNuke environment to use the RadEditor within modules and be able to set the properties that used to be in the configfile.xml in a central location (such as the max image upload size, upload image types, etc.)?

Thanks!

Michael

Nevermind... figured it out... in our case, I did not have the SkinID property set within the skin itself.

Thanks!
