I'm making a custom cms-module which can create projects and assign Members to it.
It works allmost the same as SecurityAdmin exept for that I only can select Members instead of creating them.

Everything is working except for a HtmlEditorField to save a text and some image of the project. The tinyMCE is competely working, but when I save the data is not submitted. All the other fields are working.

When I change the HtmlEditorField into an TextareaField it does save.

When I look into the DOM I see a textarea and tinyMCE below it. It looks like the data from the textarea is submitted, but not updated when I type in the tinyMCE.

Has anybody had this problem before? How did you fix it?

Thanks in advance!

is your database field of HTMLText rather then just Text?

I've tried it with both, but they are both not working. I assume that is has to be "HTMLText".

Are there any other things I can look at?
