TinyMCE for SMS field in article editor?

    Hi devs,

    Is there a reason why in 3.5-alpha, the SMS field in the article editor
    uses TinyMCE?

    Surely a simple text field of 160 characters (or 70 characters for
    Russian, Chinese and other 16-bit alphabets) would suffice, since any
    formatting will be discarded in the conversion to SMS?

    Cheers!

    Daniel

    Hello,

    Article (content) types are totally flexible, so you can make the SMS field
    whichever field type you want. So it was just the sample template package
    author who made the SMS field a body-type field.

    We should fix that in the sample package.

    All the best,
    Sava
