Renders an editor.

Syntax Syntax

wp_editor( string $content, string $editor_id, array $settings = array() )

Description Description

Using this function is the proper way to output all needed components for both TinyMCE and Quicktags. _WP_Editors should not be used directly. See https://core.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/17144.

NOTE: Once initialized the TinyMCE editor cannot be safely moved in the DOM. For that reason running wp_editor() inside of a meta box is not a good idea unless only Quicktags is used. On the post edit screen several actions can be used to include additional editors containing TinyMCE: ‘edit_page_form’, ‘edit_form_advanced’ and ‘dbx_post_sidebar’. See https://core.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/19173 for more information.

Parameters Parameters


(Required) Initial content for the editor.


(Required) HTML ID attribute value for the textarea and TinyMCE. Should not contain square brackets.


(Optional) See _WP_Editors::parse_settings() for description.

Default value: array()
