Get Rid of Extra HTML Tags(e.g p tags etc) from the Rich Text Editor while saving

Method 1: Override and disable the filters as needed

Step 1: Update the following config setting:

<settings xmlns:patch=”http://www.sitecore.net/xmlconfig/”&gt;

<setting name=”HtmlEditor.DefaultConfigurationType“>

<patch:attribute name=”value”>YourProject.Custom.Controls.CustomRichTextEditor, YourProjectDLLName </patch:attribute>

</setting>

</settings>

 

Step 2: Override Sitecore.Shell.Controls.RichTextEditor.EditorConfiguration as below:

using Sitecore.Data.Items;

using Telerik.Web.UI;

namespace YourProject.Custom.Controls

{

public class CustomRichTextEditor : Sitecore.Shell.Controls.RichTextEditor.EditorConfiguration

{

public CustomRichTextEditor(Item profile)

: base(profile)

{

}

 

protected override void SetupEditor()

{

base.SetupEditor();

Editor.DisableFilter(EditorFilters.ConvertToXhtml);

Editor.EnableFilter(EditorFilters.IndentHTMLContent);

Editor.StripFormattingOptions = EditorStripFormattingOptions.MSWordRemoveAll

| EditorStripFormattingOptions.ConvertWordLists

| EditorStripFormattingOptions.Css

| EditorStripFormattingOptions.Font

| EditorStripFormattingOptions.Span;

Editor.NewLineMode = EditorNewLineModes.Br;

}

}

}

 

Method 2: Override and remove the tags as needed

Step 1: Update the following config setting:

<settings xmlns:patch=”http://www.sitecore.net/xmlconfig/”&gt;

<setting name=”HtmlEditor.DefaultConfigurationType“>

<patch:attribute name=”value”>YourProject.Custom.Pipelines.ProcessRichTextInParagraphOnRender, YourProjectDLLName </patch:attribute>

</setting>

</settings>

Step 2: Override Sitecore.Shell.Controls.RichTextEditor.EditorConfiguration as below:

 

namespace YourProject.Custom.Pipelines

{

public class ProcessRichTextInParagraphOnSave

{

public void Process(SaveRichTextContentArgs args)

{

if ((args.Content.Trim().StartsWith(“<p>”) && args.Content.Trim().EndsWith(“</p>”)))

args.Content = string result = Regex.Replace(HttpUtility.HtmlEncode(args.Content), @”</?p\b.*?>”,

String.Empty,RegexOptions.IgnoreCase);

}

}

}

A list of filters are listed in Telerik’s documentation – http://docs.telerik.com/devtools/aspnet-ajax/controls/editor/managing-content/content-filters
