    And...if you use DNN Sharp there are 2 things:
    1. There is a NewtonSoft patch on their website which is needed.
    2, You can not upgrade to 9.4.x currently as their modules have not upgraded. So, 9.3.2. would be the max.

    In general:
    - remove modules you don't use
    - review if you use modules that are maintained. If you use anything older than - say - 2 years, think if you can still trust the quality/security.
    - upgrade modules to the latest current versions
    - Newtonsoft patch (if needed)
    - Install CKeditor (DNN Connect version), switch to CKeditor, Uninstall Radedtor
    - Upgrade DNN


    Thanks for the valuable input! I see DNNConnect.CKE entry in the web.config file, under htmlEditor section. Do I still need to install CKeditor again? If so, where do I get it from and why?

    I tried copying the htmlEditor section from web.config, but the site keeps removing it. It has entries for both RedEditorProvider and CKEEditorProvider and defaultProvider is set to RadEditorProvider.

      After reading further I have more questions: Is RadEditorProvider used by only DNN modules that have text editors? or even custom module that have hardcoded RadEditor controls use it? In all of our custom modules, we directly use RadEditor tags without checking what editor is the default. Trying to figure out what is least time consuming way to get this site upgraded to 9.3.2.

        If you're directly using RadEditor in your modules and you've updated the Telerik assembly in the bin folder with your newer licensed version, you shouldn't need to change anything with your custom modules. DNN's rich text editor will only be using if you're using the DNN rich text editor control.
