is the first of several articles on the Content Editor web part. In the demo
below Peter Kalmström, CEO and Systems Designer of kalmstrom.com Business
Solutions, gives and introduction to the web part and shows the most common
use: to add the Content Editor web part to a web part page to have the same
features as in a wiki page.
You can find the Content Editor web part in the Media and Content category.
In SharePoint 2007 and earlier using the Content Editor web part was the only
way to insert text, images and so on in a web page. It still works in that
way, so when you have added the Content Editor web part to a page and edit
it, you will get all the options that you also get in modern wiki pages.
When you create a new page in SharePoint it will usually be a wiki page, but
SharePoint also has many web part pages, like views and forms. On such pages
the Content Editor web part is very useful, because in such pages there is
no other way to add rich content.
There are reasons to use the Content Editor web part in wiki pages too, and
and CSS to a page with the Content Editor.
