I'm trying to use the TinyMCE editor in a popup window in a ModelAdmin sub-class I created. The editor's working great, but I'd like to be able to use the ImageForm & LinkForm functionality. I've been digging through the code for the last few days and not had much success in getting these added. Has anyone tried this? If so, could you share some insight?

I gave up on this pretty quickly and used the official tinyMCE image manager instead (it costs 30EUR but is pretty damn good). The links is more of a problem as the default tinyMCE links editor makes you type the link in, but it should work in a popup.

Just edit yout cms/javascript/tinyMCE.template.js and edit the second row of buttons: 'ssimage,ssflash,sslink' into 'image,media,link'. Downside is you then get this for the main editor too. I guess there must be a way to create a new HTMLEditorField type and have different settings but I never got that far.

Alernatively you could use the simple html editor that comes with unclecheeses DataObjectManager module, it has simple url inputs for images and links, but it's a little sparse on other options.
