I want to initialize the wordpress editor dynamically on frontend. I have tried to include the following scripts:


Then to init the editor like this:

  mode : 'specific_textareas',
  editor_selector :'tinymce'

But it does not work. Any ideas?


You are in luck. There is a Wordpress internal function for that. It's the wp_editor function.

The function does all the work for you. It enqueues the right scripts and style-sheets. Just pass the configuration you want.

wp_editor('Enter your text here', 'editor_id_here')
