    HELP! HTMLText field not displaying in CMS :( Link to this post

    Hi all,

    Having trouble trying to a get WYSIWYG field working on my job postings board... When I use a Textareafield its loads okay but I have to manually type HTML fields. .. I'm looking to get a basic HTML editor in there with just the common text formatting. Followed instructions to this point:

    class JobBoard extends DataObject {
    static $db = array(
    'JobTitle' => 'Varchar',
    'JobDescription' => 'HTMLText', // Declared HTMLText when building the custom database table


    $fields = new FieldSet(

    new ReadonlyField('ID','id #',$id),
    new TextField('JobTitle', 'Job Title', 'New Job'),
    new HtmlEditorField("JobDescription", "Job Description"), // Declared HTMLEditor field (but shows nothing in CMS)


    'ID' => $currentJob->ID,
    'JobTitle' => $currentJob->JobTitle,
    'JobDescription' => $currentJob->JobDescription, // Load data into it - which works fine on Textareafield


    Fresh pair of eyes would be very much appreciated;

    I'm using silverstripe 2.2.2.
