Hi all

I am trying to use SimpleTinyMCEField but it isnt working. The popup loads but none of the buttons are appearing.
(SimpleWysiwygField works correctly)


class ProductContent extends DataObject
	static $db = array (
		'ProductContentTitle' => 'Text',
		'ProductContentDetail' => 'Text'
	static $has_one = array (
		'ProductPage' => 'ProductPage'
	public function getCMSFields_forPopup()
		return new FieldSet(
			new TextField('ProductContentTitle'),
			new SimpleTinyMCEField('ProductContentDetail')


_config.php snippet
