I have a plug-in that allows for repeatable fields. There will be an image and the image description. The description allows for tinyMCE editing. There are obviously problems with this, but I think I have found a solution.

What I am trying to do is save the metadata after the user closes the thickbox and the image filed is populated. I'm wondering if there is an 'add_action' hook that I can use to accomplish this. Any ideas?

  • You could only do this with ajax. Add an event handler. For a more detailed how-to, please refer to other questions tagged with ajax and jQuery event handler and .on( 'click', function()s. – kaiser Sep 19 '12 at 19:52
  • I actually ended up using the 'send_to_editor' method. – Greg Wiley Sep 20 '12 at 3:25

I used the send_to_editor method in JavaScript. The end result ended up looking like this:

window.send_to_editor = function(html) { 
        // logic to save via AJAX goes here.
