I can't see text when editing pages and posts - html editor disabled (11 posts)

    When I go to edit a post or page - it's as though the type is in white - if I highlight the text - I can see it - but I can't see anything except for dashed underlines of spelling errors! Please help! It's annoying to try to post when you can't see what you're typing!

    also - i can't switch to html from visual - are these related issues?

    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 default theme to rule out any theme-related problems?

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

    - checking that the Visual Editor isn't disabled in your profile (Admin/Users/Your Profile)?

    The problem isn't on my site - but in the editor. I deactivated my plugins - no change, and I checked on the visual editor. it is not diabled. If I switch my theme - will I lose all the settings in my current theme?>

    You shouldn't do but there's no way of knowing for sure. Any theme that contains additional functionality and/or JavaScript can potentially interfere with the WP backend.

    I'm using atahualpa whch is pretty common - I can't imagine that would cause the problem - but I;ll try it - thanks. If you think of anything else - let me know =D

    I am having a similar issue.

    When editing a post the text in the visual editor is often white (so invisible unless selected).

    Then after switching between visual and HTML, the visual just shows HTML.

    - Visual editor is enabled
    - Still persists with all plugins disabled
    - Still persists with the wordpress default theme.

    I, too, have the same issue of white type in the editor; I just did an upgrade to version 2.9.1; Also there is no tools palette over the text entry field. Sounds like the same issue that Catiewebster and prdlik were having. Any anwers?

    Try adding:
    define('CONCATENATE_SCRIPTS', false);
    to your wp-config.php file.

    Whoo-Hoo! adding the "concatenate_scripts" to the config file works;
    but only in conjunction with deactivating an old plug-in (YAPB - 'yet another photo blog').

    I have just installed version 2.9.2 for a client and had this same issue.

    I added 'define('CONCATENATE_SCRIPTS', false);' to the wp-config.php file, as Alism suggested and it worked just fine.

    Thanks!
