where does Content Editor store it's content?

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 03, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
I know this must be a pretty standard thing but I must have missed it. Where or How does the sharepoint content editor store the content placed in it? Does that data get stored in a property of the webpart? Like if I were looking at the webpart of a particular webpage document library item using SharePointManager 2007, What property would that data exist in?

Content Editor Web Part in default.aspx not copied over.


I have a CEWP with some content in the default.aspx page on one site, and I downloaded and uploaded the default.aspx page to another site collection. But when I display the default.aspx page in the browser the CEWP is not there anymore.

Is the CEWP detached from the default.aspx page and must also be copied over to the new site collection? If so, then where is the CEWP stored?

Thanks for any help.

Content Editor Web Part Title Wrap

Hello! I have run into a strange problem with wrapping the web part titles for the content editor web part. The classes appear to be the same for both the content editor titles and the list web part titles, however, the styles I applied ( word-wrap: break-word !important; ) and ( white-space: normal !important; ) are only working on the list web part titles. These web parts are in zones with a fixed width, and cells with a fixed width, but anytime a content editor part is added (with a long title) it still blows out the zone instead of wrapping the text. Any ideas would be appreciated.

How do I turn off HTML validation in the Content Editor Web Part?

I'm fairly used to SharePoint 2007, where I could inject pretty much whatever I wanted into the CEWP, and among other things affect the page style or create div-based layouts. However, in SharePoint 2010, inserting code into the CEWP seems to go through a HTML validation process, which inserts and converts the original HTML code and ends up in incorrect results. How can I turn off this HTML validation stuff, or alternatively, is there any other way for me to inject HTML into a web part as I wish?

Content Editor Web Part - SendSOAPMessage - 403 Forbidden - FBA



Custom Permission Levels defined at the root site, loosely based on the OOB Contribute permission level. Below the root site are numerous sub sites with unique permissions assigned. Each sub site has its own group that is assigned this custom permission level. SSL is not being used.


In some sites, a user with the above mentioned custom permissions can successfully modify content in a content editor web part and save the changes. In other sites, a user with the same permissions immediately receives the message "Cannot save your changes" when they click OK on the CEWP dialog box (note: they do not receive the often accompanied "Cannot retrieve properties at this time" message). The same thing occurs when I add a specific test user account to both sites with the same permission level assigned (one site works, the other does not). Both sites are publishing sites created from the same custom template. The forbidden error results from a failed call to the WebPartPages.asmx web service, specifically at the line xmlhttp.Send(soapData) in ie55up.js library, function SPSoapRequestBuilder.SendSOAPMessage.

How to use AJAX editor with HTML content?


I have a AJAX editor and I want to put the HTML content in a database and I want to get the HTML data from the database to put in the HTML editor, in HTML mode.

So I do:

Editor1.ActiveMode = AjaxControlToolkit.HTMLEditor.ActiveModeType.Html;
        Editor1.Content = MessageLabel2;

Editor1.ActiveMode = AjaxControlToolkit.HTMLEditor.ActiveModeType.Html;

Editor1.Content = data_from_database;

But what happens is that I get the HTML data from the database in designmode in the editor, so I have HTML in designmode and HTML to HTML in HTMLmode (and that is not what I want of course).

Of course I want only HTML in HTML mode and in designmode I want the normal text.

How can you do this and is this possible?

Email entry editor with content from the entry in the email subject and body


Hi All,


First to apologies if this question should go into development section, i am putting it here as i am not sure if this can be achieved with SharePoint out of the box without custom applications.


SharePoint server 2007 and Live communications server 2007 are in question


We have a List with numerous entries, the list itself is custom but simple, only text and numbers without any formulas etc.

At the end of the list we have a column with name of “Modified By” user with Presence, we use Presence to email the person who last modified the entry.

Now my question is, is there Any way in SharePoint Server out of the box that I could get Entry Title in the subject of the email when we email the editor, and maybe another entry property in the body of the email?

I can imagine that this probably isnt possible by using presence for the editor but presence is not a requirement there, it is only used in the view for ablitity to email the editor

thank you


Error "List does not exist" trying to insert pictures or links from Content Editor WebPart


I have put a Content Editor WebPart on a page and I'm trying to insert a picture from the Rich text editor, but whenever I try this I get this error:

List does not exist.

The page you selected contains a list that does not exist. It may have been deleted by another user.

This also happens when inserting links. When I use Fiddler I can see that the error occurs somewhere in AssetPortalBrowser.aspx and It's likely that the last location used to insert pictures and links no longer exist. So the question is how do I reset the location to point to a list on the current site, or any other list for that matter? I tried deleting and adding the WebPart on the page without any luck. Typing in a valid link in the link text box or setting the attribute "DefaultToLastUsedLocation" to "false" in the call to AssetPortalBrowser.aspx did not work either. I read the solution at http://mossipqueen.wordpress.com/2008/08/08/assetportalbrowser-error-list-does-not-exist/ (de- and re-activate Office SharePoint Server Publishing feature) but the feature is not activated on my web. Does anyone have a tip on what to do? This happens on a live SharePoint environment so there may be some restrictions as to what I can

Contacts web part from Excel. Content Editor web part from Word.


I use the Contacts web part and the Content Editor web part a bit. I was wondering if I could populate the Contacts web part from a Excel spread sheet which has been uploaded to the document library. This was I only have to modify the spreadsheet and all the changes will be published to the Contacts web part.

Similarly, can the same be done for a Content Editor web part such that the content comes from a document in the document library.

Please advice.

Display error when inserting table in Content Editor Webpart


I've got a MOSS 2007. I want to insert a table into the Content Editor Webpart using the Rich Text Editor. I am choosing "Insert Table" and the new window occurs. But I can't do anything.

The buttons in the format section are not enabled.

There are a lot of display errors. (I wanted to upload an image but I don't know where...) The display errors are pictures with the name "TRANS.GIF" lying in the images folder of the 12Hive. There are several of these images maybe to align the context.

To summarize:

  • I can't use the "Format"
  • There are disply errors (images) in the dialog
Can anybody help me?
