Steps described here are not working

I'm getting error Could not find 'Validator' with identifier 'NULL'

Did someone managed to save a new content type with a xml field?

Hi Andrei,

Are you trying to set the value of an XmlText field or of a RichText field ? Given the error message, I guess it's the later while the link you provide is about XmlText.

So if you are working with RichText fields, you should have a look at

Basically, on the root <section> element you have to provide the namespace (xmlns attribute) that will tell to the field which format you provide and how to parse it. Most likely, you'll use and you can format the RichText field as a simple HTML5 like document. You can find some simple example of that in for instance (it's a script I used to reproduce a bug)
