    Fellow dev here.
    With the plain WP installation I am able to retrieve the post content with this tinyMCE.activeEditor.getContent(content), with TinyMCE Advanced activeEditor is set to null, any tips why, and how I could get the content with jquery inside the post?

    The activeEditor is null if TinyMCE is not initialized yet. It is also hidden ed.isHidden() when the user switches to the HTML editor. jQuery("#content").html(); or jQuery("#content").val(); would get the content from the textarea, the content in the iframe may be newer/changed.

    If you're trying to get the content from either MCE or the HTML editor, will need to check if MCE is hidden, if yes -> get the content from the textarea, if no -> run `ed.save()' to get the content http://www.tinymce.com/wiki.php/API3:method.tinymce.Editor.save
