Hi folks,
I'm currently developing a website which should contain a simple front-end administration. The form is generated using $fields = singleton('DataObject')->getFrontEndFields(), and my dataobject contains three fields of type HTMLText. These should be editable through TinyMCE editors, which is done through the framework. Well, they are editable, but the content of these fields is empty after submitting the form. I tried really a lot, from tracking down the JS code to tinyMCE.triggerSave() (not resolving the problem), to call of tinyMCE.getInstanceById('Form_EditForm_FieldName').getContent() (which returns an empty string),.... and after hours of headache, I have no clue left where to search for a call I omitted... can anyone help here?
Kind regards from sunny Germany

Just in case anyone else runs into this problem, this is the solution. Short and simple....

$mceConfig = HtmlEditorConfig::get();
$mceConfig->disablePlugins('spellchecker', 'emotions');
			'mode' => 'none'
