    Resolved JTLR

    Hi, I got in contact a while ago asking if wysiwygs in clonable groups were fixed, as this is quite a fundamental feature which is requested by a lot of people. Is there any progress on this?

    I’d also like to use nested clonable groups (another feature which has been regularly requested), is there any news on this? I would happily pay a small fee for this an an added extension.

    Although we’ve been working on these 2 big issues, but there is not much in the progress, to be honest. Both issues are related heavily on JavaScript. We had a draft solution for cloning wysiwyg, but WP changes its code and it doesn’t work anymore. We’re working on using pure JavaScript to work with TinyMCE instead of using WP’s code.

    Regarding the group issue, we have a fix for Javascript to make nested group works. This will be finished soon.

    Our plan in near future is:
    – Finishing the development version on Github to release 3.8 version. It’s a major change in the plugin core.
    – Then work on wysiwyg issue
    – Then group issue (probably in parallel if it isn’t related to changes in 3.8 version).

    We’re trying our best. Please be patient.


    Thanks for the update, good to hear you’re working on it. Do you have an ETA on the fix for these issues?

    I’m not sure about the time. But me and 1 developer will work hard on wysiwyg field for 2 weeks and hope we can get something.

    Update: I’ve just made a commit fafe882, which allows you to clone WYSIWYG fields. It hasn’t worked for the group yet. It works as a standalone field only. I will keep working on that.

    Can you please help me to check it? It’s in the clone-wysiwyg branch:

    FYI, WYSIWYG field now is cloneable. Please update to v4.8.3 and Group extension to 1.0.6.

    For more info, please check this blog post.


    Fantastic, thanks for the update.
