[wp-hackers] WordPress Front-End tinyMCE

Hey Mike,

Thanks for your help, but my current need is to place the tinyMCE editor on
the front-end of my client's site. They need to be able to use it from the
front-end. I've tried Scott's code, but I'm just not getting it to work
properly. I have a few examples of using the_editor() in multiple places on
the backend, however, I just can't seem to get it to function correctly on
the front-end. Anyone who has been able to do this successfully, please let
me know. I'd really like to have this job done. ;)

Thanks to all who've replied,
