Those of you who will be embarking on the SharePoint 2007 to 2010 upgrade path will want to take note of a relatively minor change to the content editor web (CEWP) part that might make your upgrade difficult.
I should also mention that you will have the same issue with any rich text fields on a publishing page.
So why was this change made? From what I understand the change was made as a security measure. There also seems to be no way as an administrator to disable this change in functionality.
So what can be done? There are a few options:
- Write a custom content editor web part that doesn’t use the out of the box SharePoint Rich Text editor.
Before going around the safeguards put in place by Microsoft, please make sure you completely understand the potential consequences.
