    Hi, I just installed this plugin and really like it. When I logged in today and tried to add a new news item, I only have the option for a title and excerpt. Do you know why I cannot use the text editor now? Thanks.

    Not sure if you figured this out, but I wanted to reply for you and anyone else having this issue. I racked my brain for a couple of days over this one, even looking through the source code of the plugin… Anyway, I finally got smart and found the solution:

    In the News Manager settings, under “News Features Support”, the Editor option must be turned on.

    I really felt stupid… I didn’t know that’s what “editor” meant. I thought it was the PERSON editing, not the text editor itself.

    These options should REALLY be explained better.


    Sorry Matt, but this are so basic things I didn’t even though someone could interprete that differently.

    News is a custom post type, every post type has it’s support options – we’re just using this in the most straightforward way.
