TinyMCE only in Content/Main field

Dear SilverStripe Community,

in my local installation the TinyMCE interface is showing on top of all content fields like content, benaviour, to-do...

The SilverStripe demo has the editor field only within the content/main field. Can someone please explain how to move TinyMCE to that location in general?

Thank you very much!

Hmm that's weird. I'm seeing the demo site is using 2.2.1 yet has the new tinymce implemented. That's misleading and odd in general.

Basically, starting in SS 2.3 the tinymce editor goes above the textarea field, and no longer at the top. It is probably too much work to hack the 2.2.x setup, so I'd suggest using 2.3

It's pretty stable as is and will be out shortly, so might as well start using it now to make upgrades easier.

Thanks for your answer. I'll start using SS 2.3 ... when do you expect it going final?

When it's ready ;)

There was talking about getting it before the holidays, but that probably won't make target. With that said, it doesn't seem far enough. I'd probably guess a month or two tops.
