Multiple TinyMCE Editors When Writing a Post (2 posts)

    Hello, I have tried searching for this, but haven't had any luck yet.
    Basically, I want to add another TinyMCE html text area to the write a post page (through a plugin, but how?). The reason is so that a writer can add a custom sidebar to a post with html content inside of it.
    I currently can do this with a custom field, and pasting the html content into that, but I'd like to be able to add to it via the WYSIWYG editor.
    This is not to be confused with the "wordpress sidebar" in sidebar.php.
    It will be a custom field associated with the post.

    Hope that makes sense. Any help would be appreciated.
    Thank you.

    Well, I tried adding another tinymce editor to a textarea I added through a plugin I created. I did this the standard way as you would add a tinymce editor to any other application that wasn't wordpress. The result was that the editors buttons and appearance was carried over to the original "post" textarea (what I did not want).
    So, my solution was to just add an FCKeditor to my own textarea, and leave tinymce alone. This seems to be an adequate workaround.
    HTH anyone who needs to do the same.
