Save plugin

This plugin adds a save button to the TinyMCE toolbar, which will submit the form that the editor is within.

Basic setup

tinymce.init({
  selector: 'textarea',  // change this value according to your HTML
  plugins: 'save',
  toolbar: 'save'
});

Save error messages

The "Error: Form submit field collision." error message will appear if you call the submit button of your form "submit", which causes a collision with the JS form submit function and makes it impossible to submit the form using code. This can easily be avoided by naming the submit button "submitbtn" or similar.

So replace this:

<form><button name="submit"></button></form>

With this:

<form><button name="submitbtn"></button></form>
