Rich Text

This field renders the built-in WordPress tinyMCE WYSIWYG editor.

Field::make( 'rich_text', 'crb_sidenote', 'Sidenote Content' )


The data retrieved from a Rich Text field will generally need to be manually filtered in order to display properly. Simply echoing the field will lead to improperly formatted paragraphs.

Applying wpautop filter

This is the minimum you’ll want to do. This will fix your paragraphs, but won’t process shortcodes or perform other text enhancements (wp_texturize).

echo wpautop( carbon_get_the_post_meta('crb_sidenote') );

Applying all standard content filters

This will apply the same set of filters used on standard WordPress post content.

echo apply_filters( 'the_content', carbon_get_the_post_meta('crb_sidenote') );
