Support » Fixing WordPress » 3.7.1 Edit Page, Visual Text Editor Toolbar, disappeared!

  • Hi:

    I am running 3.7.1, and when I go to Edit Page, to either create a new page, or edit an existing page that was working fine yesterday, the Visual Text Editor Toolbar is simply not there anymore! Gone!

    Plus, my text seems to not be there. I looks as though I am looking at a blank text area. However, when you do drag the cursor over to highlight the text, it does appear to be all there, as if you were looking at it in text mode. But only if you highlight it. The the pages appear to be normal in a browser when viewing any of the pages from a site visitor viewpoint.

    It’s so weird. What do I do?

    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 and wp-config.php & root .htaccess files – from a fresh download of WordPress. Make sure that you delete the old copies of files & folder before uploading the new ones.

    The first thing I did was deactivate all plugins.
    I am new to WordPress but will look into your suggestions.

    Thanks esmi!

    Hi esmi:

    Does that include deleting and re-uploading the .metedata, blogs, and tmp folders as well?


    For some reason I can’t delete any of the files and folders with my FTP client….I keep getting a 550 permissions thing. I have know idea what to set these to so I can delete them.

    I did everything you said, except for deleting and re-uploading the .metedata, blogs, and tmp folders, and it still is the same: Visual Text Editor Toolbar & the text still appears invisible!
