How To Add A Content Editor Web Part

Adding web parts that allow users to edit content can be done in two ways: using the browser interface or through code. Using the browser method is usually the better option as you do not need special software or training to use it, but if you are more tech savvy then this article will teach you how to add a content editor web part via codes.

There are several types of content editors such as Picture and Video Uploaders, Rich Text Editors (RTEs), HTML Editors, and Draft Mode. This article will focus on adding an RTE.

Research website templates that include content editors

Now, let’s take a look at some easy ways to add this rich editor interface to your site. First, you can go through our list of free web template sites to find one that includes an already configured content editor.

You could also use one of the many pre-made content editor templates online or create your own using any HTML editing tool (like Google Chrome) and then custom style it with CSS or in-browser tools like Adobe Creative Suite Tools.

Content editable pages are a powerful way to showcase your expertise as you make yourself available for comments and replies.

Create your own content editor template

In this article, you’ll learn how to create your own web part that uses an existing content editor as its formatting engine.

There are many reasons why you would want to do this, but one of the most common is when you need to give users more control over their pages or sites.

For example, if your organization creates blogs and magazines, then using the same editor as AWeber or WordPress would be perfect!

You can also make it easy for users to add rich media such as videos and GIFs or drop in custom HTML and CSS.

Transfer and edit existing templates

It is easy to add a web part that allows users to create pages or posts, but if you want to take it one step further then you can make it possible for anyone to contribute content!

You can do this by transferring an already created template into your site as a starting point and allowing users to edit that template’s content before adding their own customized content onto the page.

This way, even if someone does not have writing experience they can still put together a very authentic looking article using a pre-designed element such as a content editor web part.

You will need to ensure that everyone has access to the same template so that they can both customize and publish the article though.

Connect the web part to a page or site collection

Now that you have added this beautiful content editor web part, you will want to connect it to a page or site in your website.

Go back into Site Settings –> Look and Feel -> Parts and there should be an option to add a new content editor web part.

Click Add New to create a new content editor web part.

Give it a title appropriate to the content type it will use and pick whether it is for Document, Image, Video, Rich Text etc. Then, under Render, choose “Content Editor”.

Optionally, configure settings such as font size and formatting

One of the most common ways to add content to pages is using a web part called a content editor web part. This feature allows you to create and edit rich text items or documents in your site without having to use another tool like Microsoft Word.

You can also insert an audio or video file into the item. For example, you could create a page full of articles that tell your readers something important. The content writer web part makes it easy to produce elaborate, well-written pieces.

This article will show you how to easily install and use this powerful web part. There are two ways to access the content editor web part: through the classic interface and via the new user experience.

Test your new web part!

There are two ways to test your newly added content editor web part. You can either add it to a page or you can edit an existing one to see how it looks. Which method is best depends on what kind of changes you want to make with the web part.

If you just want to check out the look of the web part, then adding it to a new page will work. Simply drag and drop the web part onto a blank page in Site Settings -> Look and Layout. Then run the site as a preview (not normal) mode so that you do not need to refresh the page for changes to take effect.

For more advanced users, editing an already existent web part is the better way to go. By creating your own content editors, you can integrate them into various pages and posts. This is very helpful if you would like to create different looking blogs or online journals.

You can also change the theme settings which affect the overall style of the web part. These include color schemes, font styles, and rich text option use.

Share it with friends!

Adding a content editor web part is easy, but making sure your users can access it easily can be tricky. You do not want to make them have to go through an extra step or login into another service to use their work.

Luckily there are some great ways to configure this setting. All you need to do is add a link to the site collection level general settings in Office 365. These are found under Settings -> Manage Site Collection Features.

You will see the Content Authoring option here, which allows users to create documents and pages using either the Microsoft Word, PowerPoint, or OneNote apps. By adding this link, people will automatically have access to these tools!

This article covers other helpful tips for configuring this feature as well.

Read reviews before launch

It is important to do your research before launching any web part into your site. You want to make sure that you have all of the tools necessary for it to function properly before letting users use it!

There are several ways to add content editor web parts to pages, so making sure that they work across browsers, mobile devices, and OS’s is very essential in ensuring good user experience.

General plugins like this one can easily be modified or replaced, which makes them quite powerful. If there was ever a need to remove these types of editors, someone has made software to do just that!

We will go over some potential issues that may arise when adding such a plugin to your website and how to fix them.
