How To Add Content Editor Web Part

There are many ways to add content editor web parts to pages or blogs. In this article, I will show you one way to do it! This method is quick and easy to implement, and can be done using only HTML and CSS.

Content editors such as Rich Text Editors (Word, PowerPoint), Calculators, Captcha, and Discussion Boards all use rich text markup and styles. The difference between these types of editors is just how they are implemented onto a site.

This article will go into detail about different content editor web parts and what attributes apply to them. Then, we will learn how to create our own content editor web part by taking advantage of those attributes.

We will also take a look at some examples of how people have designed their own content editor web parts so that you can get inspiration from there. Finally, I will talk a little bit about where you can host your new content editor web part.

Use the Insert button in SharePoint Designer or Office 365 PowerShell

It is easy to add new content editor web parts to an existing page, but if you want to add a new web part with some settings then it gets slightly more complicated.

You have to go into Settings for that new web part first.

Content editors are users who can edit almost any type of document or webpage (think about it–you are reading one now!). With these new web parts you can give them access to even more documents beyond just plain writing.

These additional feature sets include formatting tools such as bold, italic, headers and footers, pictures, charts, etc. All of these must be imported or linked directly to your computer or internet source before they can be used.

Create a new blank page and insert the content editor web part into it

With very few exceptions, every website has at least one section or element that contains rich content or other components like videos and/or images.

These sections are typically an About Us page, A Message From The Founders, An Introduction, Or Something Similar.

They often contain just the right amount of information to give their audience the basic understanding of who the company is, what they do, and talk about themselves in some way.

This type of content can be difficult to find though. Most websites have limited space so opening up your site for more than a minute to add extra content may not make sense.

That’s why there aren’t really too many ways to create additional content on your own site unless you are very comfortable using HTML, CSS, and JavaScript.

Luckily, creating content isn’t quite as complicated as most people think! You don’t even need any formal training to put together something interesting and useful.

In this article I will show you how to easily add content to your site by taking advantage of the content editor web part.

What Is The Content Editor Web Part?

The content editor web part (CEWP) was introduced in SharePoint 2013 and ever since then, it has been one of the most popular web parts out there.

It allows users to write content and embed media such as photos and videos directly onto pages or posts.

Edit the HTML of your newly created web part using CSS, JavaScript, or Visual Basic for Applications (VBA)

If you are looking to add additional content element types to your site, then this article will help! You can either use one of the three mentioned editing styles or simply create your own by adding some components to an existing template.

The easiest way to do this is to edit the HTML of your newly-created web part using CSS, JavaScript, or VBScript. This is typically done through the design interface of the web part or via Custom Code.

Test your site by editing any pages that use this particular content editor web part

Now that you have added the content editor web part, it is time to test what changes work and do not for your website.

Testing these content editors can be tricky because there are so many! It is best to go into one of your blank page or new article template websites and see if the content editor works. You can also remove all content from the web part to make sure nothing will show without it.

After testing, you can add some content to determine whether the content editor functions properly. For example, you could write an article and then upload that article using the content editor. If the content editor does not refresh the browser automatically, then the content editor may not function correctly.

Reorder or remove elements from the content editor web part

You can re-arrange the sections in this component by clicking anywhere within one of these sections and dragging it up or down. To remove an element, simply drag it out of the section area or click “remove” next to it.

You can also add new text, images, rich media, and other components directly into your site using the content editor. These additions are saved as separate files so they do not get lost when you edit them later. For example, you may want to insert some linked content or place a product link here and then attach an image to the article below that link!

These content editors work very well if you need to make quick changes to a page or website. Because they are built with HTML5 and JavaScript, you do not have to worry about compatibility issues either.

Export and import your website using Productivity Power Tools

One of the trickiest parts about adding new web pages or content areas onto your site is actually creating them!

You can create some really beautiful looking pages, but if you try to edit anything on the page then it no longer works because you do not have access to the HTML code for that element.

There are several ways to go about solving this problem, most involving exporting and importing an existing webpage or web part as either a Word document, JPEG image, PDF file, rich text item, plain text or video.

The easiest way to solve this issue is to use one of the free Microsoft products called Productivity Power Tools. These tools contain a feature that allows you to export any section of your current browser window as an MP4 movie (video). You can then upload this movie to YouTube or other sites where people can view it.

This solution is very easy to implement and does not require too much advanced technology. It is also extremely versatile as you do not need to connect to the internet to use it.

Update your website with recent changes using Microsoft Online

A web part is an add-on that you can include in your site or webpage design. They are typically called something like “Comments”, “Content”, or even “Social Links”.

You can choose from several content editor web parts (CEWPs) to update and enhance your pages. You can also create new CEWPs easily by picking one of the pre-made ones or starting from scratch.

Encourage visitors to sign up for a newsletter

A content editor web part is one way to add additional content to your site that can be used to create an interactive experience. You can use this tool to allow users to edit and/or write new material or you can let them pick from available templates.

A web part like this allows people to contribute by creating an account using their email address and then adding content through the interface.

You can also promote it as a way to keep in touch with others on your site by offering a newsletter subscription box. This can be done via a opt-in form or embedded into the article, etc.

By doing this, you are encouraging more interaction and engagement.
