echo '<form action="" class="booked-settings-form" method="post">';
$default_content='<p>Mail formate</p>';
$editor_id = 'customerCleanerMail';
wp_editor( $default_content, $editor_id,array('textarea_name' => $option_name,'media_buttons' => false,'editor_height' => 350,'teeny' => true)  );
submit_button('Save', 'primary');   echo '</form>';
if(isset($_POST['customerCleanerMail'])  ){
      $fff=update_option('customerCleanerMail', $var2);

In form section i used wp_editor with his options, wp_editor work like html editor but when you store these data it not storing html data. so we found solution how to store html data wpautop() and htmlentities() both two functions help to store html formated data


Very simple

if (isset($_POST[$editor_id])){ update_option('name_option_you_want', $editor_id); }
