Is there a way I can use WordPress visual editor in my plugin? (3 posts)

    I am working on a plugin for WP 3.0 and above. For the moment, I need a basic visual editor for the users and I just don't want to overload the plugin's size with it's own visual editor. So I am thinking to use the one already available in Wp.
    Anyone tried this before?

    Yes it's quite possible, problematic if you're loading it alongside the existing editor, but outside the post editor screen it's fairly simple..

    wp_tiny_mce( false, $mce_config );

    Where $mce_config should be an array of key=>value pairs that represent the configuation settings for the editor(tinymce) instance.

    Config settings can be found here.

    Or if you prefer, a brief write-up covering the key points can also be found here.

    If you have problems implementing the code, let me know, i've used it in plugins page myself without a hitch.. ;)

    Thank you very much. I will try it out and come out with updates.
    I noticed you are a moderator, so I guess it would be useful to redirect/move/link the thread http://en.forums.wordpress.com/topic/possible-to-use-the-visual-editor-in-my-own-plugin/ to which I was first guided by Google to here.
