3.2 Broke Visual Editor (multiple sites) (11 posts)

    I have several wordpress sites that I updated to 3.2, at that time the visual editor tab on all 3 sites I installed 3.2 on stopped working.

    I have turned off all plugins... no change.
    I have turned to 2011 theme instead of my custom theme.. no change.
    I have run health check plugin and received an excellent rating for 3.2 and beyond.

    Here is a video of what it looks like:

    I'm at a loss, not sure what to do..

    Any help would be appreciated. Thank you!

  2. Clear your browser cache so as to refresh the javascript libraries from your site.

    Another screencast of what happens... Absolutely nothing.

    Any suggestions?


  5. Check if your PHP version has JSON installed.

    How do I do that Ipsentu?

  7. Make a PHPInfo Page and look for JSON :)


    You'll see it as:

    json support enabled
    json version 1.2.1

    here is my phpinfo.php

    I tried to look in there, not very technical, but it looks to be disabled, not sure what I would do now.

    @milesWilliams - it looks like -disable-json was used when your version of PHP was compiled. I would encourage you to contact your host and ask them to recompile php without this flag

    I enabled json on a Plesk 9.5.4 on SUSE 10.3 with php 5.2.11-0.1 by adding just two files to the server, root access is required.

    Details here:

  11. Some servers (cpanel) let you enable it for yourself. When in doubt, ask your host :)
