I have a body field (Text field with summary) with WYSIWYG CKeditor enabled.

However, the "summary" part of the field lacks a WYSIWYG editor.
How can I enable it?


The WYSIWYG module's logic acts on text fields with input formats, if you want to explicitly target a form element by its ID you can use the CKEditor module instead.


Under your content type -> manage fields for the summary field you can enable text processing to be filtered text (user selects input format). Hope that helps.

    It seems to refer to the main field, not to the summary. At least, I have it already set to be filtered and have the WYSIWYG editor only in the main field (not in the summary). – Michał Pękała Sep 10 '11 at 16:44

I had created my own summary field in CCK. I use the CKeditor and this only worked after I realised I had to configure the field as a multiline text area and not as a single line text field.


I just tried WYSIWYG module version 7.x-2.x-dev with CKEditor (the editor, not the Drupal module), and it actually worked -- the summary field now displays with a wysiwyg editor instead of the plain textarea.


If you are using the wysiwyg module you can enable/disable this in the wysiwyg profile settings. It’s in the fieldset at the bottom: «Basic settings - Enable on summary fields».
