Make use of CMS rich text (XhtmlString) editor on our pages?



We have some pages in our site which allow authenticated users to post content to the site. These users are part of the company and can be trusted with the capabilities of a rich text editor.

Currently, users are only able to create content in plain text, but we would like for them to be able to edit using the same rich text editor as is available for the XhtmlString type in the CMS.

Is it possible to expose the CMS's XhtmlString editor for fields on our own pages?

Since the editor inside the editorial interface is very tightly coupled with the editing interface, we do not support using the built in editor for the interface for your web site. For instance, you can download a newer version of Tiny MCE that you can use on the site. Unfortunately, this means that some functions, like the integrations to EPiServer like the link dialog, will not be used. Instead you have the default link editor.

What Linus say is very true, setting up the Tiny editor inside EPiServer is not an easy task. I am right now working on a blog post on how to add it to a custom prop and it's not an easy task.

To add tinyMCE to a regular page without the integration to EPiServer is however a very easy task. See here for example

Ok cool, thanks for your help. I've used the latest version of TinyMCE as per both of your suggestons and it's working great.
