Tumblr Digg Google Plus

You may wonder after doing an upgrade to a newer version in Dotnetnuke (DNN), your text rich editor is still on the old version. In this tutorial, we will show you quickly where you can switch between the old and the new text editor.

To change the default text editor provider of your website is pretty easy. To do it, just open your web.config file located on your root folder. Look for the following words:

Below is the full sample text grabbed from the web.config file.

<htmleditor defaultprovider="DotNetNuke.RadEditorProvider">
    <add name="TelerikEditorProvider" type="DotNetNuke.HtmlEditor.TelerikEditorProvider.EditorProvider, DotNetNuke.HtmlEditor.TelerikEditorProvider" providerpath="~/Providers/HtmlEditorProviders/Telerik/" toolsfile="~/Providers/HtmlEditorProviders/Telerik/Config/ToolsDefault.xml" configfile="~/Providers/HtmlEditorProviders/Telerik/Config/ConfigDefault.xml" filterhostextensions="True"></add>

    <add name="DotNetNuke.RadEditorProvider" type="DotNetNuke.Providers.RadEditorProvider.EditorProvider, DotNetNuke.RadEditorProvider" providerpath="~/DesktopModules/Admin/RadEditorProvider"></add>


If you want to switch around between TelerikEditorProvider or DotNetNuke.RadEditorProvider, You just need to specify the name of the provider and place the default html provider name in the orange background location.
( htmleditor defaultprovider="DotNetNuke.RadEditorProvider" )
