Add media buttons with multiple wp_editor instances in WP 3.5 (4 posts)

    I'm not sure where to post this question, but hope that somebody knows the answer :)

    The case: on a post edit screen I have a second area for rich editing created with wp_editor (but it has it's own ID) inside metabox, and I need to be able to use add-media button with this second area to insert images from media library. But it does not work properly - the button opens media library dialogue, I can select images but the markup is not appeared in the textarea after selection.

    Does this case mean that new WP 3.5 insert media UI does not support multiple wp_editor instances on the sampe page? Or I'm just doing it wrong? Is it intended behaviour?

    UPD: I've found that it happens because I've run wp_editor with media buttons but without quicktags and visual edtor is disabled. Is it intended behaviour?

    Did you find a workaround?


    <?php wp_editor($content, $unique_id, array('textarea_rows'=>8,'media_buttons' => true )); ?>

    the media button does not work. Clicking it will scroll to the top of the page but will not open the media dialog box.

    You're using WP3.5? [That's the topic of this thread - it would be better to start your own per http://codex.wordpress.org/Forum_Welcome#Where_To_Post ]
