[resolved] Visual Tab not working (25 posts)

    I can say that to the best of my knowledge I have read the entire master list and have tried everything that it suggested (that I understood) and I still can't get the visual tab to work. Now I am totally new to WP and am self taught and probably WAY behind most folks around here, but my blog worked GREAT until the update with all my current plugins, theme, etc. I just want it to work again. The link to my site is lbcreations.us, but it's all a mess right now because I've been changing the themes as suggested. Current theme is twenty-eleven. Thank you and PLEASE pretend that you are speaking to a very lost person when you offer help! Because you are. :)

    OH! And while creating a post in TEXT mode it will not allow me to add media to my post.

    Have you tried:

    - deactivating all plugins to see if this resolves the problem. If this works, re-activate the plugins one by one until you find the problematic plugin(s).

    - switching to the default theme to rule out any theme-specific problems.

    - resetting the plugins folder by FTP or PhpMyAdmin. Sometimes, an apparently inactive plugin can still cause problems.

    - re-uploading all files & folders - except the wp-content folder - from a fresh download of WordPress. Make sure that you delete the old copies of files & folder before uploading the new ones.

    Did the following...

    Not sure what you mean about the following...

    The visual editor works fine with vanilla WordPress.

    So, if you've deactivated all of your plugins and switched to 2012 theme, then there's any issue with your install or hosting environment, but we have to rule out plugin or theme conflicts first.

    I use the 2011 and have switched twice to the 2012 theme.

    @dillonangus: It is impolite to interrupt another poster's ongoing thread with a question of your own. It causes significant problems for the forum's volunteers and prevents us from being able to track issues by topic. Please post your own topic.

    - deactivating all plugins to see if this resolves the problem. If this works, re-activate the plugins one by one until you find the problematic plugin(s).

    - switching to the default theme to rule out any theme-specific problems and leaving the default theme active.

    I am almost sure that this started after my upgrade to WordPress 3.5.

    I am also prevented from inserting any media, just nothing is added in the post. I can switch from Visual to HTML (using WP-Editor or WYSIWYG Foliopress).

    But no media in !! .... have not seen it on my other sites ... yet... but I do not want to switch Theme at this moment.... just to see...

    Apparently I am at a point with this problem that I need to do the following and either no one can tell me how to do this or my posts are being over looked due to others posting on my request for help...so one more time I ask...how do I do the following so that I can "reactivate" my visual tab for editing posts?
    - re-uploading all files & folders - except the wp-content folder - from a fresh download of WordPress. Make sure that you delete the old copies of files & folder before uploading the new ones.

    Have you made sure that SuperCache is totally deactivated and cleared? According to your site it still active:

    <!-- Dynamic page generated in 0.304 seconds. -->
    <!-- Cached page generated by WP-Super-Cache on 2013-01-22 16:50:50 -->

    WPyogi, I just got through uninstalling and reinstalling WP on the server and I am still having the same issue. The entire supercache folder was deleted and once WP was reinstalled the visual tab is still not working. Any suggestions now?

    Just to be sure, have you cleared your browser cache and cookies? Or even tried another browser just for the heck of it?

    I have used Chrome and Firefox. I have cleared cache/history repeatedly. I've tried several themes. I am so at a loss!

    Agree that seems pretty weird, but there are a few more steps you could try -- see Jan's post in this thread:

    iceewoman Congrats!!
    Did you follow all steps or was there a specific action in "editor stuck in html " that solved the problem for you ?

    The script debugging fix worked!!!

    After this one?:
    "If that didn't work (really, please follow those steps) then most likely it's a Javascript issue with your installation."

    Thanks,

    I double checked again. I have multiple WP-based sites but none has this problem, using the same browsers....
    It is only a problem with the site that I last updated to WM3.5 !?

    @Karesansui: As per the Forum Welcome, please post your own topic. Posting in an existing topic prevents us from being able to track issues by topic. Added to which, your problem - despite any similarity in symptoms - is likely to be completely different.

    @esmi
    I'm not trying to be too pushy here, but I offered my problem (which appears to have been identical) and configuration up to the OP in an effort to help her troubleshoot. I think it is a bit rude to flame someone for offering to help though from a little less experienced viewpoint.

    I wasn't posting a new problem, only describing that mine had the exact same symptoms. I would think that a new post would actually be counterproductive to the effective use of time by those trying to help.

    I wanted to follow up though for the users out there to whom this happens. The Java script fix here:

    worked perfectly for me, too.

    My Visual tab was empty. Very frustrating. I fixed it within five minutes of visiting this thread. I added this:

    define('CONCATENATE_SCRIPTS', false);

    to my wp-config.php file, and like magic the problem was solved! Thanks WPyogi and Jan.
