Access to EPiServer TinyMCE web control?


Have encountered problems using the EPiServer TinyMCE web control on an ASPX page. There´s no problem when user has admin or edit access. But when with a regular user the control can´t be loaded. So when displaying the page the user will be promted a couple of times for username and password and then a message dialog with the text "Load jQuery first!" will be shown. The page will load but with some JavaScript errors. Fyi: The site is using windows authentication.

Anyone who encountered the same "access problem" exposing the TinyMCE control outside the edit/admin mode?

Hi Martin

I would like to use TinyMCE editor (PropertyXHTMLString) webcontrol as a normal server control on aspx instead of property. Can you tell me how you have done that?

In short, you only need to do this in your ASPX page:

  1. Register the TinyMCE namespace.
  2. Add the web control on the page.


<%@ Register TagPrefix="tinyMCE" Namespace="EPiServer.Editor.TinyMCE" Assembly="EPiServer" %>

<tinyMCE:Editor Width="460" Height="200" theme="advanced" runat="server" />

You can add a custom toolbar like this:

string[] toolbarRow1 = new string[] { "bold", "italic", "underline" };

txtEditor.ToolbarRows.Add(new ToolbarRow(toolbarRow1));
