I'm developing a small Joomla plugin, but I can't figure out how to add a field that uses the normal Joomla article editor, and not only a text field. I have a field like this:

<field name="menu_one" filter="raw" type="textarea" default="" label="Field labbel" cols="100" rows="20" />

I would like to display a WYSIWYG editor like the mod_custom module does. How can I achieve that?

The mod-custom module seems to be using the code <customContent /> to add the editor. It's located right before the <files> declaration in the XML file, not sure if it can be used elsewhere.

I actually found another option: The editor field type.

<field 
   name="test1" 
   label ="Test Field" 
   type="editor" 
   width="300" 
   filter="safehtml" 
   editor="TinyMCE"/>

Using this field in my XML manifest, I'm able to add as many editors as needed.

  • joomla.stackexchange.com/questions/16296/… explains the difference between <customContent /> and the editor field type - added because Joomla Docs doesn't explain it (at least I can't find it there) Mar 30 at 10:09
