Customize Rich Text Editor in SharePoint 2010

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 21, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint

I tried to customize the Rich Text Editor (HTML Editor, Content Editor) in SharePoint 2010. How can I replace the default styles with my own styles in the following Dropdowns of the editor:

  • Fonts
  • Styles
  • Markup Styles
  • Tabel

 I tried also the PrefixStyleSheet-Property but I don't figured out the correct style definition - the Dropdows were empty.

<PublishingWebControls:RichHtmlField id="Content" FieldName="PublishingPageContent" runat="server" PrefixStyleSheet="PageContentStyle"/>

I found some informations but nothing works.

How to use display Text in Hyperlink For SharePoint 2010 Designer Workflow


In SharePoint 2007 Designer, I have used the Hyperlink column to store the link "http://www.sharepoint.com/Default.aspx, Details". The details text will be shown in the Hyperlink column. Everything works fine in sharepoint 2007 Designer workflow.

In SharePoint Designer 2010 Workflow, I used the same method but the hyperlink column is displaying the full text "http://www.sharepoint.com/Default.aspx, Details" instead of only Details


Javascript error on Rich Text Editor of CEWP

Hi all,

I have a problem that is really bugging and I wasn't able to find any workaround all day. I'll try to give as many details as possible:

I'm maintaining several site collections on a single server and this problem occurs only on one of the site collections. However it occurs on all subsites of this collection, it occurs on old pages and newly created pages, even on pages containing only one empty CEWP.

When I'm pressing the button for Rich Text Editor of CEWP I get the following error:

Message: Invalid argument.
Line: 5740

Code: 0

I've tracked down the error with IE developer tools and I found that the error pops up in HtmlEditor.js at

Query Sharepoint list, rich text columns returning HTML tags

Hi! So I have an issue that maybe someone of you have encountered as well. I am querying a Sharepoint list and creating a report from the data collected from this list. This all works fine except that one of the columns in this list is of the type "Multiple lines of text" and also supports "rich text" with different fonts, sizes and so on. This has the effect that the text returned from this column is wrapped in HTML tags that specifies how the text should be formatted. Naturally I do not want this HTML code to appear in my report so for now I have used custom code to do a string.replace and replaced for example <div></div> and <br> with "". However, this column also has url references to documents and these links shows up like this "/servername/site/subsite/Gemensamma%20dokument/Mwh.docx">http://servername/site/subsite/Gemensamma%20dokument/Mwh.docx There is some sort of double reference to the document that I guess like the HTML tags are embedded in the answer from the rich text column and this is not so easy to do a string replace on because the url varies with the different document and document names. My question really is if anyone of you have done a similar report that I am doing, and have encountered this fenomen with this sharepoint column and how you did to solve this? I have tried to creat

Sharepoint 2010 features customize deployment(Upgrade)


Dear All

I am using site definition approach for development and so i have created features for each and everything , i.e for content types,master page and layout pages, variations,Lists instances etc.

When i deploy solution from VS 2010, it first retreat solution and so removing everything and again in next steps add and activates each and everything.

In package, if i take some selected feature E.g Lists Features then it deploys only that but before it retract steps removes everything.

So in this case only Lists available in Site.

My question is : how i can customize deployent for some particular features ?

means if i just want to change only one column of list then only that feature need to updated on site and all other features should remain unchanged at all.

As i guess i can not remove retreat step from deployment steps as for add and activate solution retract is necessary


So kindly reply what is proper approach to upgrade only selected features and also if i am not on right track
