I am using Ctools to generate a popup and I'm loading my form inside it. In order to use a textfield with youtube link embedding and image uploading, I am using WYSIWYG module with CKeditor library.
My problem is that, when I define a form field with text_format as type, the values that are given in the field are not retained in the
I checked by defining the default value, It seems to be retained in the form_state['values'] but any changes that are done to the default value in the rendered form is not reflected.
$form['optional_links'] = array( // '#type' => 'textfield', '#type' => 'text_format', '#format' => 'plain_text', '#default_value' => 'unique', '#title' => t('Optional: include additional info like link or image that gives context'), );
The same form works perfectly with textfield type. I even tried changing the formats but of no use.
