Can't Switch To Visual (17 posts)

    When I try to edit a post I can't switch to Visual. I tried emptying my cache using W3 Total Cache, and it did not work.

    Check under your User profile and make sure that the disable visual editor box is UNchecked.

    If so, then try deactivating all your plugins, resetting the plugins folder (using FTP rename the plugins folder) and switching to the default theme.

    Thanks but I don't know how to reset the plugins folder as you described.

    Here's a better explanation -

    Make sure you are clearing any browser and site caches. Also what browser are you using? You may want to try a different one just in case.

    I did all of that and I am still having the same problem.

    That doesn't look like the default theme with no plugins - that's really the only way to troubleshoot this kind of problem.

    Hi, I switched it back. I will switch it out again.

    Have you tried another browser? What browser are you using?

    And you DID look under your users profile? (sorry, just doublechecking - these things can be annoyingly troublesome :). )

    Try the fix in this thread -

    You could also try reinstalling WP manually by -

    - re-uploading all files & folders - except the wp-content folder - from a fresh download of WordPress. Make sure that you delete the old copies of files & folder before uploading the new ones.

    Bummer. That is a bit out of my skill-set.

    Hmm, yeah, that's a bit daunting, I agree. Unfortunately, I'm really not sure what else to suggest. These kinds of problems seem pretty random and can be a real pain.

    But going back to your first post - you said you have W3 Total Cache? That plugin can be pretty troublesome, so if that's the case, you may want to completely delete it and any files it's added to your site.

    Thanks. I added W3 after the problem ocurred so that I could delete my cache.
