I have found this in several versions of the news module, including v1.56.... There is no Extended Text field in the news submission form for registered users unless they are given approve permissions as well as submit permissions. This is totally funky because it messes up the whole flow if there are just a bunch of scoops and nothing else.
Magick can never be restrained, but when freely given is thrice regained!

I always change this on new installations.

Sure.

Look for storyform.inc.php in modules/news/includes

Look for this stuff:
Quote:
$editor2=news_getWysiwygForm(_AM_EXTEXT, 'bodytext', $bodytext, 15, 60, 'bodytext_hidden');
$sform->addElement($editor2,false);


There should be an if clause just before this line. Just remove it.
