    HTMLEditor Field in frontend (SS3) Link to this post

    Using ss3, I have a form with an html editior field, but nothing shows up.

    If i paste in all the links to js and css files that the admin area uses, it shows up file.
    This makes me think SS3 is missing a few JS links when using the HTMLeditor field in a form - and it's not being enables...

    possible a bug?

    actually, just seems it's missing a bit...

    <script type="text/javascript">

    tinyMCE.init({
    theme : "advanced",
    mode: "textareas",
    theme_advanced_toolbar_location : "top",
    theme_advanced_buttons1 : "formatselect,|,bold,italic,underline,separator,justifyleft,justifycenter,justifyright,justifyfull,separator,outdent,indent,separator,undo,redo",
    theme_advanced_buttons2 : "",
    theme_advanced_buttons3 : "",
    height:"250px",
    width:"400px"
    });

    </script>

    adding this to the template initiallized thed editor, but I think it should be doing this anyway without having to add manually...

    Good find, you may want to raise this as a ticket on open.silverstripe.org.

    I too am having trouble getting HTMLEditorField working in the frontend on SS3.1.

    Is there a solution?

    I am having issues with getting the editor to work in the front end also, but my issue is that when the form is submitted the data from the HTMLEditorField does not get passed through. If I change the field to a plain textarea it is fine.

    I have already started a topic here: http://www.silverstripe.org/form-questions/show/36948 and tried the solution offered with no luck.

    Really hoping someone could shed some more light on the situation

    With SS3, HTMLEditorField requires an instance of HtmlEditorField_Toolbar, this is done automatically by the cms but in the frontend you have to implement it yourself. See the doc here:
