Updating a Magento Custom Category Attribute to have a WYSIWYG editor

So you have created yourself a new text area attribute using something like the the Gauss method, and now you want to use a WYSIWIG editor to make updating your attribute easier… No problem, simply fire up your database in PHP MyAdmin, Sequel Pro (etc) and run through the following;

  1. Find the attribute_id of the your custom attribute from the eav_attribute table
  2. Open the table catalog_eav_attribute and search for the matching attribute_id from step 1
  3. Update the field is_wysiwyg_enabled to 1

Happy coding!
