    I can't see visual editor when in enter the add new post section, the post content is shown in html format and there is no visual editor switching button at the right corner where it used to be.

    I've try all the theme including official ones, and disabled all my plug-ins, but still no luck.

    Please help.

    You could try re-installing WP if you haven't already.

    Possible extreme: Installing a fresh, clean copy of WP and upload all but the wp-content folder.

    Thanks for your information, Jose.

    Could you please offer me a tutorial link of how to reinstall WP without losing any of my posts and settings?

    Thanks in advance.

    In your Dashboard go to Updates and then choose to re-install.

    Maybe because I am using Version 3.6-1-24717, I can't see the re-install button in the update page.

    Weird. Let me change to that version. I'm running the most recent trunk version

    Seems to work fine for me.

    What is your current setup? Apache, PHP versions? Using a local setup or on a remote server?

    I think I am using php, I set it up using cPanel X

  9. Do the reinstall manually.

    1) Delete wp-admin and wp-includes folder
    2) Download from http://wordpress.org/download/ *get the nightly!*
    3) Copy up WP's files

    Then turn off ALL yout plugins :)

    Hi Ipstenu,

    Just did what you said, still no luck...

  11. Rename plugins to 'plugins-old'

    I can't reproduce this, though. I'm using the Visual Editor right now :/
