Creating a clone of the wysiwyg field

  • As part of a new project I’m working on, there is a need to have 2 types of wysiwyg field which have different toolbar buttons set up.

    I’ve tried to go about this by creating a new field type for the duplicate wysiwyg field, using the documentation here: https://www.advancedcustomfields.com/resources/creating-a-new-field-type/

    Then inside the render_field() function, I tried switching the type from clone_wysiwyg to wysiwyg similar to how the type is reassigned in the post_object field type:

    // Inside class-acf-field-post_object.php:332
    function render_field( $field ) {	
        // Change Field into a select
        $field['type'] = 'select';
        // ...
    }

    However, the wysiwyg field doesn’t initialise in the page edit view when I use it as part of a field group.

    How can I initialise the field and pass it custom TinyMCE args?
