    Is it possible to save a Wysiwyg field’s content into the post_content.
    Also if i created a Wysiwyg field, could i and how will i set the default value as post_content. (assuming i already had content in wp default Wysiwyg)

    Thank you

    Hi, to save wysiwyg field’s content into the post_content, you have to do the trick:

    – Setup the post type not to support editor (using this function https://codex.wordpress.org/Function_Reference/remove_post_type_support)
    – Set the wysiwyg field the id = content.

    If you do that, you can set the std value as the post content by querying the post content.

    This is the code: https://gist.github.com/rilwis/eacd78b507df951cb0450ebd38ee14ac

    PS: this question is asked quite frequently, so I created a tutorial for it here with more details: https://metabox.io/docs/save-wysiwyg-content-post-content/

    I have this set up, and in the WYSIWYG editor for the content field I can set a link on some text, but after saving the post the link is removed. What am I missing?

    You had me add a custom html field to the Field Group with the following:

    <style>#wp-content-editor-tools{background:none;padding-top:0;}</style>'

    the full code for the Field Group is:

    <?php
    add_filter( 'rwmb_meta_boxes', 'your_prefix_register_meta_boxes' );
    
    function your_prefix_register_meta_boxes( $meta_boxes ) {
        $prefix = '';
    
        $meta_boxes[] = array (
            'title' => esc_html__( 'Code Snippet Before', 'text-domain' ),
            'id' => 'code-snippet-before',
            'post_types' => array(
                0 => 'code-snippet',
            ),
            'context' => 'after_title',
            'priority' => 'high',
            'fields' => array(
                array (
                    'id' => $prefix . 'content',
                    'name' => esc_html__( 'Reason for snippet', 'text-domain' ),
                    'type' => 'wysiwyg',
                    'desc' => '###Why did I need to use this?
    This field is also used as the Excerpt for the post.###',
                    'class' => 'reason-for-snippet',
                ),
                array (
                    'id' => $prefix . 'what-it-does',
                    'name' => esc_html__( 'What It Does', 'text-domain' ),
                    'type' => 'wysiwyg',
                ),
                array (
                    'id' => $prefix . 'actual-code-snippet',
                    'name' => esc_html__( 'Actual Code Snippet', 'text-domain' ),
                    'type' => 'wysiwyg',
                    'sanitize_callback' => 'none',
                ),
                array (
                    'id' => $prefix . 'before-the-snippet',
                    'type' => 'single_image',
                    'name' => esc_html__( 'Before the snippet', 'text-domain' ),
                ),
                array (
                    'id' => $prefix . 'after-the-snippet',
                    'type' => 'single_image',
                    'name' => esc_html__( 'After the snippet', 'text-domain' ),
                ),
                array (
                    'id' => $prefix . 'custom_html_sbvmvz193m',
                    'type' => 'custom_html',
                    'std' => '<style>#wp-content-editor-tools{background:none;padding-top:0;}</style>\'',
                ),
            ),
            'style' => 'seamless',
        );
    
        return $meta_boxes;
    }

    You need to add the default content for the field wysiwyg and set the value for the ‘content’ custom field. For your case, the code would be https://pastebin.com/erjmfhht.

    Remember change the post to your post type and follow the code in the documentation https://docs.metabox.io/save-wysiwyg-content-post-content/.
