If I try to add a new post/page or edit an existing one I have no editor sidebar in the backend where the publish button is located. Therefore I am unable to write new posts.
Instead of the publish box there is a dashed empty box. Screenshot:
- deactivating all plugins
- using the default theme
- re-upload of all files beside wp-config.php and wp-content
- clean install with new database
- clean 2.8.x and 2.9.x install
- deactivating Suhosin
Nothing worked. The publish button never came back. It was there in the past because I published the first post and everything worked fine.
I am still able to publish posts from the quickpress widget on the admin dashboard. Posts from the post editor are also saved as automatic drafts to the database.
Do you have any idea what could cause that or how to solve it?
