    The editing toolbar (not just the kitchen sink - all buttons) are missing from the edit post/page pages. Can't edit previous content or add new content.

    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 all files & folders - except the wp-content folder - from a fresh download of WordPress.

    No! Your site's security will be compromised. Switch to the Twenty Eleven theme and reset the plugins folder by Phpmyadmin.

    I can see some Google references in the site's current home page? Have you edited the Twenty Eleven theme in any way?

    No... I didn't edit the theme.

    I found the Google reference - it was for an adsense banner in one of the sidebar widgets. I removed it. The backend is still unchanged.

    Try re-uploading all files & folders - except the wp-content folder - from a fresh download of WordPress again. I can't emphasise enough that this must be a fresh download.

    Just did this - still nothing. I downloaded directly from the "downloads" tab on this site just now.

    Has anything else changed or "gone missing" in the back end of your site?

    No - not that I have noticed. It's just the edit page/post page and specifically the body area of that page.

    That's what is confusing me. It sounds very much like a plugin or core file corruption issue. when you re-uploaded WordPress, do you delete the old copies before uploading the new? If not, give that a go. Over-writing doesn't always work for a number of reasons.

    Okay - I'll try deleting first and then re-uploading.

    YAY!!!! There it is!!!

    It was something in either the wp-admin or wp-includes folder. It must not have been getting overwritten. I deleted each, moved the newly uploaded folders into their places and ta-da!

    THANK YOU!!!!!!!
