I'm using the wysiwyg plugin with a gravity form to allow registered users to submit guest posts to our blog.
I turn on wysiwyg for the textarea field requesting the post content and it works well UNLESS the user tries to submit the form without completing all of the required fields.
When that happens, gravity forms displays the default error:
There was a problem with your submission. Errors have been highlighted below.
The other input and textarea fields on the form retain their values and the missing field is highlighted. But the textarea field with the wysiwyg turned on loses all of its content.
Since this is the field where I'm asking the person to input the body of their post, this is where the user would have spent most of their time inputting information and will be very discouraged to lose all that time.
In all likelihood, they will not bother to input the content again so this is a major problem for us.
The other major problem is that when the error message displays and the missing fields are highlighted, the wysiwyg box reverts to being a <textarea> input field and all of the editor buttons disappear.
Can you let me know how to modify the plugin or update the form field somehow so that the field retains its content and wysiwyg status after an error is returned by gravity forms.
Thanks very much,
