Can No Longer Edit a Older Post in HTML (4 posts)

    I used to be able to edit an older post in html but now I cannot do it anymore with version 2.3

    Because sometimes just after posting you think of something that you would like to add. Now all I see is "basic" and "code", none of which seem to accept html code.

    What do you mean by "basic" and "code"?

    The visual editor has two tabs, one is labeled "Visual" and the other is labeled "Code". The Code tab is where you can input or edit raw HTML.

    i have the same problem (i think)
    yes the Code tab is for editing html. but then the problem is that after saving it. WordPress doesn't seem to pick up the change you made.
    Example, I wanted to stick paragraph and breaks into one of my post. but when I edited the code and saved it, nothing changed in the actual post.
    I believe actually, WP used to stick them in automatically but for some reason it doesn't do that now(which i find weird because now I can't even put them in)

    Same problem here! The visual HTML editor suddenly stopped working. Only code appears under the VISUAL tab, same as the CODE view (in fact, the toggle function between the two seems to be stuck.

    And, after editing a page, only a blank screen appears on refresh -- whether having done a SAVE or SAVE AND CONTINUE EDITING command.
