No visual editor - new install 3.2.1 - solution (1 post)

    Brand spanking new install of 3.2.1
    No visual editor.. lots threads about different versions of this problem happening.. I tried several things and did not want to re-upload..

    Found this:
    at the end of the sticky:

    If the TinyMCE fullscreen button is missing, check to see if the site
    is still using the pre-2.7 WordPress Automatic Upgrade plugin.
    Upgrading with that causes an incomplete (but oddly mostly working)
    upgrade.
    To fix the problem:

    1. Deactivate (and preferably remove) that plugin.
    2. Go to the Dashboard->Updates option in the menu.
    3. On this new page, select to Re-install WordPress 3.2.1. It'll spin
    a minute and redownload WordPress and install it over itself properly,
    fixing any missing or broken files.
    4. Clear your browser cache. Your browser will have a copy of the bad
    Javascript files in memory, and until you clear them out, it won't try
    to load them from the site again.
    5. Done. The full screen button is between the spell check button and
    the "kitchen sink" button.
    -------------------

    So I figured it couldn't hurt to try this.. and it worked:

    All I did was this part:
    2. Go to the Dashboard->Updates option in the menu.
    3. On this new page, select to Re-install WordPress 3.2.1. It'll spin
    a minute and re-download WordPress and install it over itself properly,
    fixing any missing or broken files.

    Makes me happy.
