Incorporate Wordpress WYSIWYG and media-buttons

I think it would be a good Idea to incorporate Wordpress WYSIWYG into your on Add a Show - > Show Notes.

I have partly accomplished this by editing wp-content/plugins/gigpress/admin/new.php
and replacing the following line,

<textarea name="show_notes" id="show_notes" cols="45" rows="5"><?php echo $show_notes; ?></textarea>&lt;br /&gt;

with

&lt;div id="poststuff"><?php the_editor($show_notes, 'show_notes');?>&lt;/div&gt;


The now has the WYSIWYG. Found a small layout problem when I view shows, but that will be fixed soon..

I have taken your suggestion, Re: Related Post into consideration and realize that this could create double content, but I do think it's well worth it, looking at all the feature requests, by using Wordpress WYSIWYG and media-buttons, you can squash half of them (Y)

I know there's been some requests for a more robust "notes" area, but it's really not the intention of that field. For now, it's going to stay simple, with the related post serving as the venue for rich text and other media content.

Unfortunately, yes, your changes will be overwritten during an upgrade, but it's a small for you to make I guess.

I also like this idea, if only to format text as paragraphs and headings. Sometimes there's not enough info to justify the creation of a related post, but I'd still like it to be formatted a certain way.

Beautiful work on this plugin, btw!

I use this plugin for a lot of classical music sites and I and my clients really love it - thanks so much for releasing it for free - it makes me feel all warm inside!

For classical stuff, the notes field is really the only place people can write programme details and a WYSIWYG editor here would be really helpful for that purpose - even just to use italics and bold from time to time.

Might you be persuaded to reconsider this?!

Not that I can see right now ... it opens up a can of worms that I really would like to keep within the realm of the related posts. I do appreciate your need, but I've got to balance all these feature requests with preventing the plugin from becoming a parallel version of WordPress. :)
