I have a problem with tinyMCE on my page. Everything works fine saving to db and so on. But when I submit the changes tinyMCE refreshes and then I have the old content in the textbox. In the db is the new text..
Can't find the problem.
<?php

include "db.inc.php";
require_once('content/update.class.php');

$saved = false;

?>

A browser REFRESH will, in most browsers, preserve the text in INPUT, TEXTAREA, and other editable fields.

So to do it properly, you would use javascript to set the values of those fields AFTER the page has loaded. That way, you can refresh the page and set it the the proper new values.

You have a little php script that outputs the contents to the textarea.

Instead, output the contents to a javascript variable. Then, set the contents of the textarea using javascript.

Attached is the code with this done (copy and paste, it should run properly). REPLACE from the start of the textarea (echo) to the end of the textarea element (</textarea>). This is NOT TESTED so if it doesn't work properly, there might be a little issue in the code :)
echo '<textarea id="elm1" name="elm1" rows="10" cols="80" style="width: 80%">';

$query = "SELECT * FROM content where cnt_id=".$contentnumb;
$inhalt = mysql_query($query);
$row = mysql_fetch_assoc($inhalt);

switch ($numb) {
    case 1:
        $content = mysql_result($inhalt, 0, 'cnt_textbox1');
        break;
    case 2:
        $content = mysql_result($inhalt, 0, 'cnt_textbox2');
        break;
    case 3:
        $content = mysql_result($inhalt, 0, 'cnt_textbox3');
        break;
}
?>
		</textarea>
<script type="text/javascript">
var textarea_content = "<?php echo str_replace('"', '\\"', $content); ?>";
document.getElementById('elm1').innerHTML = textarea_content;
</script>
