How To Enable Content Editor Webpart In Sharepoint Online

Customer care team

With Microsoft Teams, Office 365 groups can be made into workgroups or teams. A team is an easy way to organize your workplace! You have the option to use custom names for these groups, but most people just type their job title as the group name.

However, this may not be very helpful for other users. Why would someone go through the effort of finding your new group when they could make their own with the same information?

It will also cause confusion for people who already have the old school “Office Team” groups that contain everyone in the department.

Luckily, you do not need special software to create your own content editor webparts (CEWPs) in sharepoint online. All you need to do is install the right apps first and then manage them from there! In this article, I will show you how to enable CEWPS in sharepoint online and what kind they are.

Login with your account

If you do not have web access, you can still easily enable this feature. All you need to do is login using your Microsoft or Office 365 account. Then, under Settings -> Search, click on Manage search apps. Find the app named “Content editor” and either select it or add it as an extra app for your organization.

That’s all there is to it! You now have content editing tools within your SharePoint site.

In Microsoft’s latest iteration of its office suite, users can now access editable content web parts directly from within the browser. This feature is called the “Content editor toolbox” or CEWP for short.

By adding this tool as an app via your phone, you will have easy editing powers right at your fingertips anywhere you have internet access!

CEWPs work by hosting an online version of Word, PowerPoint, or Excel that users can toggle through and make edits to. All three programs are free, so there is no cost involved when using this feature.

You do need to purchase either Access For Office, which gives you full use of all 3 apps for $9.99 per month, or Azure subscription, which gives you limited use for free.

Look for SharePoint online under ‘Site Collection Features’

There is an easy way to enable or disable webparts such as content editors in SharePoint. You can do this by looking into Site Settings, then look under 'Site collection features'. Here you will see a feature called 'Content editor' which allows you to turn it on or off.

If this feature is already turned on, you won't be able to find it in the list of site settings. That's why it is important to make sure that it is completely disabled! To quickly re-enable it, go back into your Site Settings and click to add new features, scroll down to find the content editor feature, and check the box to turn it on.

Make sure you have selected enable content editor web parts

There is an easy way to remove this web part, but only if you have enabled the content editor web part. If you do not, then trying to access the site settings will result in you needing to use the full power user interface!

So how can you make sure that the content editor web part is enabled? Simply go into Settings -> Look and Feel -> Theme and there should be a section called “Content element” where it says either “Enable rich editing” or “Disable rich editing.”

If it says “Enable rich editing,” then your setting was already changed and you just need to switch it back to normal.

Create or edit pages that use the content editor

It is very common for business departments to have their own domain within your organization, such as marketing, sales, customer service, and so on.

What if one of those departments needed an easy way to create and update documents? You can enable the content editor web part for that page type!

To do this, go into Settings -> Look and feel -> Pages and document templates under Themes and styles. Find the check box next to “Enable Content Editor” and then click Save.

You may need to also re-select which theme you want to apply the look and feel to before it applies the changes, depending on what state it was in before.

This will give every user access to the content editor area directly from any page or app that uses the content editor web part as a wrapper.

Sometimes, you need to edit or create content within your site. You can either use the classic web browser interface for editing pages or you can use an easier way by using the built-in tools of SharePoint.

You have several options when it comes to creating new documents or editing pre-existing ones in Office 365. One of these is through the use of the Content editor web part.

The content editor allows users to add rich formatting, videos, images, and even HTML into their document. This gives them greater flexibility than just adding simple text onto the page.

It is very easy to install and use! If you are looking to give some extra tooling to your staff or yourself, this article will show you how to do so quickly and easily.

Update your website using Microsoft's templates

Recent developments for Office 365 include an easy way to update your site using one of their template options. If you are looking to start from scratch or need to make major changes, this is very helpful as it removes the need to use the content editor web part as a starting place.

Microsoft offers several free template options that can be installed onto your site. Some of these contain all of the features of the classic content editor web parts, while some may not. The best option will depend on your needs at the time of installation.

You do not have to use these templates completely, but if you would like to add new pages, sections, lists, etc. then they are excellent resources to use.

Learn new skills by taking up coding

Having access to rich content editors is one of the most powerful features you can add to your site. You can create free, premium or business accounts that feature this tool.

You can also choose whether to use it as a classic text editor, video player or both. The best way to utilize this browser extension for content creators is to learn how to code!

If you are already familiar with HTML then looking into CSS could help you level up your web making skills. If you know some basic jQuery then designing interactive elements comes easier.

By adding these three components together, you will have the ability to fully customize the look and feel of your website through the Content Editors.
