While I was working on some project, there was a requirement to add extra RTE field for tt_news. I extended the table tt_news by adding RTE fields. I faced the following problem

1) I inserted the table but after saving the tt_news record the table started disappearing

2) <p> tag was not inserted automatically for press of Enter

After doing some research I found the solution

1) Set the transformation mode for the RTE to “ts_css” in ext_tables.php


if (t3lib_extMgm::isLoaded(‘css_styled_content’)) {
# RTE mode for table “tt_news”

Here the table used is tt_news and the filed name is exampleField

2) For P tag to be inserted for every new line character I added the code

$rowfrntbl[$tblcol]=$pObj->local_cObj->stdWrap($rowfrntbl[$tblcol], $pObj->conf[‘general_stdWrap.’])

Here I am using hook  for tt_news to get the desired result.
