Multiple Rich Editors


This plugin allows developers to easily register addition rich editors and retrieve / display the content entered within.


  1. Upload multiple-rich-editors to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
  3. Register new rich editors using add_theme_support and use the provided template tags to retrieve and display the data you need


How do I add a rich editor?

Easy! In your theme’s functions.php file, add the following code:

function register_rich_editors() {
    add_theme_support('multiple-rich-editors', array(
        'additional-editor' => array(
            'label' => __('Additional Editor'),
            'post_types' => array('post'),
            'wp_editor' => array('media_buttons' => true),
        'additional-editor-2' => array(
            'label' => __('Additional Editor 2'),
            'post_types' => array('post', 'page'),
            'wp_editor' => array('media_buttons' => false),
add_action('after_setup_theme', 'register_rich_editors');

Feel free to provide whatever values you need.

How do I know what I should provide when registering a rich editor?

Easy! Just take a look at the /lib/template-tags.php – there are detailed
instructions in there on how to register editors and use the template
tags to get the data you need.

My content loses the paragraphs that are specified in the editor. What do I do?

Multiple Rich Editors doesn’t apply the default WordPress content filters on its content by default. However, there is a code snippet in /lib/template-tags.php that explains how to do this. Follow the directions there and you should be good to go!
