CKEditor For WordPress
CKEditor 4.0 stays blank (20 posts)

    I've read the many threads about CKEditor 4.0 being blank, but I can't find the reason why I am still stuck.
    When I enable CKEditor 4.0, editor is blank, only shows one button. Can't switch to the HTML tab either. I can sometimes see HTML in the visual editor when I drag to select stuff, but that's it. Works fine with the standard crappy editor.
    CTRL+SHIFT-J shows several java errors in load-scripts.php line 79, "Cannot call method add or undefined", pertaining apparently to jQuery.
    Did the Moono/update options thingy, no change.

    Help much appreciated.

    I believe there was some google xml sitemap plugin causing trouble. Shut your plugins off and turn them back on one at a time to see what did it. I was surprised that this messed mine up, since it didn't seem to have anything to do with editing, but it did.

    Sorry, can't be an xml sitemap plugin. I'm working on a new installation, only Akismet was activated. Turning it off did not help.

    By the way, yesterday I had the same problems on other sites, too.

    I have tried this plugin in my local computer using Twenty Twelve.
    In many times I want to edit the old post, the editor is blank...when I save the old content is lost.
    I have tried and only three plugin activated: CKEditor, SyntaxHighighliter and SyntaxHighighliter for CKEditor.
    I am not brave to try it in my live blog before everything is fixed.
    I'm sorry and thanks.

    I'm using TwentyTwelfe, too. I will try a different theme later and report back!

    Sorry, don't have Firebug and wouldn't know how to use it.

    @msrosyidi,
    please paste links to 'SyntaxHighighliter' & 'SyntaxHighighliter for CKEditor' plugins and write which versions do you use . It will help us to reproduce this issue.

    I did some testing, and it's working now. I tested with a new theme, and it worked. I switched back to Twenty Twelve, and it worked, too!

    So it seems that switching the theme off and on solved the problem.

    (It might be more complicated, since I switched around many things, including reuploading theme files, turning the plugin on and off, etc.)

    Still, something seems wrong, because I had the same problem on another site, and switching themes shouldn't be necessary. I tested only 1 site now, so I don't know if my solution is in any way consistent and repeatable.

    You've got to do one thing at a time when you're troubleshooting like this.

    I know, I got carried away. :-)
    Tons of other things to do, no time for scientific testing...

    Anyway, my recommended steps are:
    Reupload theme and plugin files.
    Deactivate and activate theme after activating plugin.

    I understand -- It's damned aggravating when stuff doesn't work. Did you see my post on KCFinder for CKEditor? Another case of "WHY YOU NO WORK!" but I eventually got it. You might like it actually, since you're using CKEditor too.

    Integrate KCFinder with CKEditor in WordPress

    @michal_cksource:
    I'm trying using these:
    syntaxhighlighter-ckeditor-button.1.2.1
    http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/syntaxhighlighter-ckeditor-button/
    and
    wp-syntaxhighlighter.1.7.3
    http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wp-syntaxhighlighter/
    and of course
    ckeditor-for-wordpress.4.0
    http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/ckeditor-for-wordpress/
    under WordPress 3.5 installed on my local computer and the old posts are imported from my live blog.
    ===
    The big problem is only when editing the old posts. No problem when creating a new post, it works as desired (many thanks for your hard effort to create this useful plugin).
    About debugging, oh, I have installed firebug but I'm so beginner in this world of web development so I don't understand how to use it now.
    I have tried to reinstall all freshly twice.

    I'm sorry and many thanks for all your kindness.

    Oh, I try again just now in my local computer and deactivate all other plugins. Only activate CKEditor.

    I open randomly my old posts and also the posts from the theme data test.
    When I open posts with very little content (1 until 2 or maybe 3 paragraphs), CKEditor always works, the content is loaded correctly. But when I open posts with very long content with many paragraph, the CKEditor is blank no content is loaded in many times (not always). Some times the long content with many paragraph is loaded but when switching between visual and html the content is lost...

    I'm sorry and again many thanks for all your kindness.

    It's not just a lag is it? I've noticed that CKEditor is slower about bringing my content up than the default WP editor. This is compounded by my ISP (Fairpoint in Maine) which is generally just a hair faster than molasses going up a hill in January...

    I notice CKEditor hanging when working on sites from home, and better when I'm working on my employer's site while I'm at work.

    @michal_cksource,

    The older posts are created using the default HTML editor (I never use the visual editor) under WordPress 2.9 until 3.4. I open them randomly.

    I install WordPress in my local computer more then twice, one time I import from the old exported file from my live blog under WP 3.4 and another time from the new exported file from my live blog under WP 3.5. And the result is same.

    One again, some times the old post with litle paragraph (maybe less then 5 paragraphs) is loaded in HTML editor, but when I switch to Visual Editor and CKEditor is enabled as the default editor the content is immediatly lost. I switch again to the HTML editor or the Source in the CKEditor toolbar the content is lost.

    I'm sorry and many thanks for your kindness.

    @msrosyidi,
    I think it can be caused by broken HTML code in your old posts.
    Please check if your HTML is correct in your old posts.
    You can also send us example post that you have problem at m.kesicki/at/cksource/dot/com

    @michal_cksource,

    I have checked by copying some posts that can't be loaded when CKEditor is enabled from the WordPress HTML editor, of course after disabling CKEditor, to Microsoft Visual Web Express. I don't find any broken code.

    You can see how I write my posts, all are using two mixed languages, at my live blog here. Each language has its own css class because of the different font-family, font-size and direction (LTR and RTL). I'm sure there are no any errors when exporting or importing the posts, my posts are still less then 60 posts.

    And about theme, I also have tried in my local computer using twentytwelve theme and also using the theme I use it in my live blog.

    I'm sorry and many thanks for your kindness.

    Hi,

    I have IE9 and use WordPress 3.5. I got a notice for one of my sites that I had an update to my editor. I did the update, and it said it was done successfully. But now when I try to edit any of my pages or posts, none of my content is there and there is no tool bar.

    I also have another site that is using Dean's FCKEditor For WordPress 3.3.1. This editor works fine, and I have never recieved a notice saying there are any updates to it.

    I have tried to re-install Dean's FCKEditor 3.3.1, but it doesn't install anymore
