quicktags do not appear when opening a post for editing (8 posts)

    When I create a new post, quicktags appear properly in the post editor.

    When I open a draft, quicktags fail to load. The HTML version of the draft post appears in the edit box but then things stop loading. The quicktag buttons never appear.

    'Use visual rich-text editor' is switched on in User Options for the user acct attempting to edit a post.

    I have re-uploaded the WP-INCLUDES directory from the unpacked install files stored on my local drive.

    Quicktags appear only if the rich text gizmo is NOT checked.

    rudolf, sorry, that's not correct. The box is labelled "use visual rich-text editor" by virtue of ticking the box.

    I have several WP installations and they all work properly- except one. They all display the quicktag buttons for WYSIWYG formatting when the box is ticked.

    Are we talking about the same buttons?

    Those are NOT quicktags - those are the tinymce buttons. The classic WP Quicktags are displayed only when the wysiwyg thing is off.
    Exactly as here when writing this post: what is above the text input area they are called quicktags. Everything else... well, is something else :)

    OK, then how do I fix the non-appearance of the "tinymce" buttons?

    I never use the wysiwyg/tinymce because it's an evil tool. Sorry.

    I do use it and don't find it evil.

    Anyone know how to fix this problem?

    Just for grins, have you tried clearing your local browser cache?
