    All of a sudden the edit box used for creating and editing posts ( and pages) is blank. THe text is there, but invisible. I can copy it to a word doc and work with it there, but cannot insert links or pics or adjust the text because the menu above the edit box is gone. I read somewhere that I needed to create another admin account and try again. It did not help.

    Have you tried:

    - deactivating all plugins to see if this resolves the problem. If this works, re-activate the plugins one by one until you find the problematic plugin(s).

    - switching to the Twenty Eleven theme to rule out any theme-specific problems.

    - resetting the plugins folder by FTP or PhpMyAdmin. Sometimes, an apparently inactive plugin can still cause problems.

    - re-uploading the wp-admin and wp-includes folders from a fresh download of WordPress.
