The out of the box Telerik RTE in Sitecore has been around a long time and served us well. But there are many options out there like Redactor. Has anyone implemented another more modern RTE in Sitecore?

Telerik is .NET so it has the ability to extract the HTML from the editor on save. Not sure the way forward on a JS only. Seems like I would have to write an API that the save event could post to.

    The issue is some of the functionality within the RTE - Link to Sitecore Items and Insert from Media Library. You'd need to replicate this functionality, and as others have stated, it's pretty hard baked in.

I'm not sure you could easily just change the Rich Text editor controls with a different editor, but an option you could use would be to create a new custom field, you could call it "Rich Text (Editor Type)" and then when you are configuring the Custom Fields rendering, you could have it pull in a different editor instead of the default telerik editor.


Sitecore RTE can not be replaced by another control . Sitecore is using Telerik controls by its foundation and it's not possible by just writing API or patching any code by Config file .

But it's possible to use same Telerik control with the numbers of customization.

To extend feature of rich text you need to make change default.aspx which can be found (/Sitecore/Shell/controls/Rich Text Editor/default.aspx) For Example : This is the daualt entry for richtext control sitecore in default.aspx

You can add your extensions here by replacing or adding custom JS .
