SharePoint Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for SharePoint enthusiasts. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I'm trying to add a custom action in the Ribbon.EditingTools.CPEditTab.Markup group. My goal is to add a button that fires a custom javascript that inject som html content in the rich editor control of a wiki site (related to my previous question).

When I try with SPD, even if I can write Ribbon.EditingTools.CPEditTab.Markup, the custom action is not displayed.

How can I add such custom action using either SPD or Powershell ?

I've also tried with a Powershell script like this :

$site = Get-SpSite "http://server/sites/coll"
$ca = $site.UserCustomActions.Add()
$ca.Name = "test"
$ca.Title = "Test"
$ca.Location = "Ribbon.EditingTools.CPEditTab.Markup"
$ca.Url = "javascript:alert('Working')"

Please note this is a custom action used for only one site. I'd like to avoid to create a feature for this purpose.

This should help you http://msmvps.com/blogs/cobrien/archive/2010/01/25/adding-ribbon-items-into-existing-tabs-groups-ribbon-customization-part-2.aspx

To only activate for a single sub-site, make sure your Feature is targeted to a WEB, which should then be activated for your web only.

Hope it helps, C:\Marius

I've read this article. My question was targeting SPD or maybe PS. Here I'll have to buidl a feature, package, etc. which I wanted to avoid. –  Steve B May 15 '12 at 12:59
