    i have another WP MS installation that i upgraded from 3.2 to 3.3.1. No problems there!

    Here is the link for the snapshot http://dl.dropbox.com/u/49994559/Screen%20Shot%202012-01-04%20at%201.56.56%20PM.png

    The MCE does not show and the the text is white. It is selected on the snapshot, hence the light blue.

  3. It's not specific to multisite. Any teeny tiny javascript error will case the tiny mce to not work.

    reupload the wp files again.

  4. You may need to delete the wp-includes and wp-admin folders, and reupload from a copy from http://wordpress.org/download/

    Hello all.

    I deleted everything, started from scratch on a multisite and almost a year later, just went live today, just a few minutes a go.

    The problem has resurfaced.

    Nothing was changed on the server at all, but my tiny MCE is not showing again.

    Screenshot at http://cl.ly/image/2Q1n3g1n462f

    Things i have already done:
    1. Disabled all plugins
    2. Reinstalled WordPress
    3. Check on a default Twenty Twelve theme.

    In all cases, same results. No tinyMCE and the text appears white. Any advice ?

    UPDATE: Uncaught ReferenceError: tinyMCE is not defined in Chrome Inspector

    After my default Editor did not display, i tried installing tinyMCE based plugins such as TinyMCE Advanced, but that didn't work, so I installed a completely alternative Editor

    CK Editor
    [http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/ckeditor-for-wordpress/]

    which seems to have overwritten whatever was causing the MCE Editor to not work.

    Works with CK Editor, but I will still try to find why the default editor is not working.

    Any comment is helpful.

    Strange that there was nothing at all that was changed on the server side. Nothing at all. Domain Names etc were switched around, added for load balance and redirect etc.. but nothing on the actual web server.

    Strange.

  7. Nothing was changed on the server at all, but my tiny MCE is not showing again.

    Nothing?

    So no upgrades of WP, no upgrades of PHP, no new plugins or themes? In a year?

    Sorry Mika, I thought i had replied earlier.

    The issue for me was/is that between changing from test servers to going live, nothing actually changed on the webserver side.

    I was using CKeditor as a temporary fix until i stumbled upon a number of posts (http://wordpress.org/support/topic/upgraded-to-32-visual-editor-buttons-missing?replies=62 where you were active too this weekend)

    So i installed the Google Libraries plugin today and it automagically brought the Tiny MCE back, so probably something to do with how i am en-queuing my scripts maybe. I'll look more into it..

    It is still strange to me why it just stopped working, because on my end, the URL before is the same as it is now (med.uth.edu), we only added a third URL/domain(med.uth.tmc.edu) redirection to resolve to the existing one.

    I will take both of your advice and look carefully into how each plugin and my functions is enquing the javascript libraries.

  10. So i installed the Google Libraries plugin today and it automagically brought the Tiny MCE back, so probably something to do with how i am en-queuing my scripts maybe.

    Yeah, that would be a js conflict most likely. Check the other plugins, too, to see if they're being idiots and including their own :/

    And this is why I hit people with sticks for not just using the built in JS.

    (Themes can also do this :/ )
