Uploading Images in Sharepoint Content made easier.

For anyone who has ever had to edit content in Sharepoint and asked themselves why is it so hard to insert an image, this is for you.

By default to insert an image into a wiki or blog for example, you have to do something like upload images to a Sharepoint picture library and link to image by copying and pasting a URL to the Image. 

 

Does Microsoft know what year this is?

Anyway there is a Solution but it requires a little effort. The telerik MOSS editor which also comes in free lite version.

 

See - http://www.telerik.com/products/sharepoint/radeditor.aspx

Uing the RAD editor you can browse to image folders directly while editing content and create folders for storing images on the fly.

A few gotchas to watch:

Make sure you follow the installation instructions that come with the download package as the online instructions seem to be out of date.

You need to have either AJAX or .Net 3.5 installed on the server.

You dont need to edit the masterpages as the instructions say you do.

To modfiy properties of the editor you need to modify the ListConfigFile.xml located in
/Program Files/Common Files/Microsoft Shared/web server extensions/wpresources/RadEditorSharePoint/5.2.3.0__1f131a624888eeed/Resources/

(ListConfig as opposed to Config.xml as most content is kept in Lists. Lists, Wikis, Blogs, etc. are Sharepoint Lists)
