Your editor name is "postdescription" but you had referred to it as "description" in the update server behavior bindings.

I've corrected that issue on the post_update.php page...

It appears you have a typo in the word document... The same link appears twice for the working and not working page, so I don't think I got a link to the not working page that I could debug.

HTML editor Is still not updating.

I just checked and it is still not inserting and updating for me. I have updated the word document.

OK on the page that wasn't showing the editor, you had the editor named "description"... but there was a meta tag named "description" causing a conflict. I renamed it to postdescription.

On the other page it was already called postdescription. I updated the php to use postdescription, but didn't notice that the form action was still pointing to the other page that had it wrong. I've updated the update code to postdescription on the original page as well now, so it should work in both.

Thank You. However, It does not retain the info when you update it. This is the same problem I had after our session. It will delete the content in the description if there is existing content upon update. I was hoping to just make sure the file was working in the test folder and then apply the changes to the live folder.

The form action was still pointing to the wrong page. I've updated it and it appears to work now.
