wp_editor on the front end is affected by theme CSS

WordPress 3.9 doesn't seem to offer the "link to existing content" functionality for the wp_editor (the frontend editor). However, this functionality appeared to be present in earlier versions of WordPress.

  • Component changed from TinyMCE to Editor
  • Version changed from 3.9.1 to 3.9

When I add the editor with wp_editor() to the front-end, everything works fine.
There's a toggle inside the link dialog "Or link to existing content".

What theme are you using? The height of the dialog is fixed, so if your input boxes are too big, the toggle may be hidden...

We should probably add admin styles for that.

There are a lot of other UI issues when using wp_editor() on the front-end... See screenshots.

  • Summary changed from wp_editor does not allow "link to existing content" functionality to wp_editor on the front end is affected by theme CSS

Let's go ahead and get editor styling right on the front.

  • Status changed from new to closed

With the new block editor, and full site editing on the project's roadmap, I am going to close this out as this is a Classic Editor issue.

If anyone feels differently, please do reopen and provide a more recent breakdown of the issue and its current behavior.
