Project Description
Enhanced Rich Text for SharePoint Extended: Embed Flash videos, Iframes, etc. in SharePoint Rich Text Field. Easy to setup, no Server-Side code.

Project's official pages here

The problem of SharePoint's Rich text field is that it filters out a lot of the embedded code. This simple-to-install JavaScript adds a workaround for inserting embeddable content (flash, iframes, etc.) into SharePoint's Rich Text Field. Also you get an additional button in the toolbar for easy inserting of this content.

6.5.2009 - New release + translators

The new version (1.2) is released. If you've downloaded any previous release, just download the new one and replace the .js file in your site collection.
Translators are still desired. It's simpel and fast. See how here


Check Michael Gannotti's cool review :)

Deployment is simple.

Update: You can see how to simply deploy (even if you don't have the SharePoint Designer) in a video here
  1. Download the current release
  2. Unzip it
  3. Upload the two files (.js and .gif) to the root masterpage library (http://yourSharePointSite/_catalogs/masterpage)
  4. Edit the masterpage in the (sub)site and add just below the </body> the following <script type="text/javascript" src="/_catalogs/masterpage/erte.js"></script>


The current version is published with English (LCID 1033) and Slovene (LCID 1060) translations. If the script can't find localization for your language, it will use english by default. To add localized version, add under "//Localization arrays" the translated following line:

var erte1033 = new Array("Please inputtt details","Alt Text","This will be displayed in RSS feeds","Embed Code","Paste your Embed code here","Insert","Close"); //english

and change the LCID and language at the end. If you don't know the LCID of your SharePoint site, open it in Internet Explorer, in the address bar type javascript:alert(L_Menu_LCID) and press enter.

If you've localized the string, I'd be happy to receive it to add it to the new release. Just add it under comments on this page. Thanks!
