I am creating a plugin for our nopCommerce site, and I wanted to use a rich text editor for my admin page. I started looking at how to use the Telerik MVC editor, but then I realized I should be looking at an editor template. I found a great post by Brad Wilson about MVC templates.
This got me thinking. We opted to switch the rich editor from Telerik to CKEditor (for file upload ability) and when we did that I made the change by creating a new shared editor template. Since this plugin is ultimately used within the admin section, I thought I may be able to make use of the existing editor template. Sure enough, I could. Adding a simple template name parameter to the Html.EditorFor did the trick.
