How To Add Content Editor Webpart In Sharepoint Online Modern Page

Adding web parts is one of the most versatile ways to add functionality to your site. You can create, find, and install almost any type of web part here in the Microsoft Office store.

There are many types of content editor webparts that you can add to pages or sites using the A-Z index as a starting point. For example, you can choose from Product Listing, Image Gallery, Video Player, Quote, Form, Checklist, Map, Calculator, Document, Spreadsheet, Slide Show, Live Chat, Poll, Phone Call, Website Link, Picture Album, Column Viewer, etc.

You do not need special software or skills to use these web parts. Most of them have free versions that work just as well if not better than their paid counterparts! Some even allow you to easily edit and tweak the theme, colors, and settings to fit your needs.

This article will show you how to add an easy way to insert product listings into a page or website. This content editor web part is called Product Listing and it is very popular due to its versatility.

Find and click the page that needs it

Now, let’s add our first web part: content editor! To do this, go back up top where you selected “Add new item” then choose “Content editor”.

You will now see several options for what kind of content editor you want to create. You can pick from rich text box, list, video or picture. Pick whichever one sounds most interesting to you and your users and test out your web part by clicking through them!

Once you have picked your content type and content area, give your web part a name so you know what it is later. Then, hit publish and your web part is ready to be used anywhere on your site!

Right-click and select edit pages from here... or press Ctrl+E

In this section, we will learn how to add web parts to your Pages or Document Sets using the content editor. These are very common webparts that most sites have at least one of. You can create an article and then include rich formatting, links, and even embedded videos or documents using a content editor!

Content editors come in two main versions: Microsoft’s “OOTB” (out of box) version and third party tools such as Adobe’s freebie tool called Spark. Both contain all of the features you would want for writing and editing posts, images, and other media.

There is some variation between the apps, but they are both powerful enough for basic use. To add either type of content editor to a page, first make sure the page is published. Then, go into the Settings tab and choose Manage Layouts. Find the List view and click Edit under View mode. Press Alt + T and search for Content Editor. This will take you back to the settings panel where you can install it.

Look at the bottom of the page, look for the ribbon icon with three lines under it

If you find this web part here, then you have already done something right! You have enabled the rich editor feature within your site which allows users to create and edit content using Microsoft Word or PowerPoint as an editing tool.

This is one of the most popular features available for creating pages in Office-style documents. It seems like every other team out there has limited access to these tools, so people are forced to use plain text editors such as Google Docs or just use plain HTML.

By giving users access to rich media content creators can easily put together interactive documents that include videos, pictures, charts, and more. This adds new depth to the experience of sharing information via Office apps.

Click insert web part

The next step is to click “insert web part” underneath your cover page. You will now see several different web parts that you can add onto your site.

You will want to select the content editor web part, as this allows for users to edit rich text or HTML documents directly within the webpage similar to what you would do with Microsoft Word.

After adding this web part, you will then need to give it a title! This way, people know what element they are editing. To make it easier to find, you could apply a short name such as ‘Content’ or even no name at all! (We recommend using Boring Names)

Once everything is ready, hit publish and you are done!

Your users now have access to some very powerful tools to create and update pages for your website. If there is anything else you may like to include, feel free to search for other components online.

Select a content editor web part

A content editor web part is any website or application that allows you to add, edit, and design rich content such as videos, documents, forms, and presentations.
Content editors are very popular because they can easily be modified and integrated into your site.

You can find pre-made content editor web parts available through many free and paid apps and services. Many of these have easy customization features so users do not need advanced software expertise to use them.

There are also third party tools that allow you to create your own content editor web parts. You can then customize their settings and plug them into various pages and sites to make it more functional for your users.

This article will show you how to install and configure a content editor web part in Microsoft’s online collaboration tool – SharePoint Online. We will also look at some ways to further customise it.

Insert into current page layout

Another way to add web part is by inserting it directly into an existing sharePoint online modern page layout. You can do this by selecting “Add or remove pages” from the settings menu under navigation. Then, you will see all of your layouts. Find the one that you would like to include the new content editor web part in and click “Edit with toolbar” next to it.

You will then have access to additional features such as adding content, editing content and formatting content just like you would in a document or presentation. All of these functions are accessible via their respective menus!

Edit settings if needed

There is an easy way to add web parts to your pages that many people do not know about. You can add any content editor web part to a page, or even multiple ones at once! All you have to do is edit its setting first, then click “Add” under where it says "Content editors can use this field"

The default value for the “Who can view/edit this item?” drop down menu option is set to "Everyone." This means anyone with permission to contribute to the group or team site can make changes to the item directly from the browser.

This may be okay for some types of documents, but most share points contain more detailed information that should be limited to only users with appropriate permissions.

Test your website by editing some new posts

If you are reading this article, then you have already done one of the most important things for site improvement- checked out the homepage!

Now that you have given your users a place to start with their work, it is time to add content to your site. You can do this by either creating or finding an appropriate web part that can be embedded onto the home page or any other section of the site.

There are many ways to achieve this, but my favorite way is using the Microsoft Suite’s built-in tools to create and edit content. With Office 365, there is now a browser version of Word, Excel, and PowerPoint which means you no longer need software installed on your computer.

By adding these apps as web applications, you get all of the features within each app plus access to them across every device connected to the internet. This gives you more flexibility than having to use separate versions at different locations.
