Is there a solution to provide multiple content - boxes to the one using the admin interface for text editing with the wysiwyg-editor?

The documentation for the fields which can be defined was looking good for the first moment and I was trying with field type "HTMLText" but this one just offers a one line input field for html code.

Any ideas?
Thanks for your help.

You have to add an HTML editor field to the editor too, instead of a TextField in your getCMSFields() method, ie.

$fields->addFieldToTab('Root.Content.Main', new HtmlEditorField('YourFieldName','More content'));

This hint was the solution.

This is exactly what I was looking for, thanks!

For anyone who is unsure of where to place this, here is a portion of my 'CareerPage.php' (located within mysite/code):

class CareerPage extends Page {
	static $db = array(
		'Requirements' => 'HTMLText'
	static $has_one = array(
	function getCMSFields() {
		$fields = parent::getCMSFields();
		$fields->addFieldToTab('Root.Content.Main', new HtmlEditorField('Requirements', 'Job Requirements'));
		return $fields;
