SharePoint – Online Content Editor CEWP Missing

December 22, 2017

When starting to work with SharePoint Online, first thing you notice is that the CEWP is missing out of the box Sad smile

But no stress, there are 2 ways of getting it back ….

Solution 1

Go to office365 admin –> SharePoint –> Setting –> Custom Script –> enable it



Be aware that this option will affect ALL site collection settings…which is not advisable in my opinion.

Solution 2

You can activate Publishing features for both Site Collection and Site level

  1. Site Settings > Site Collection Administration > Site Collection Features -> SharePoint Server Enterprise Site Collection features
  2. Site Settings > Site Actions -> Manage Site Features -> SharePoint Server Publishing



This option has only impact on the individual site collection, which is more advisable.


Enjoy !
