  • Hey Guys,

    I have just installed 2.5 using the released version from the wordpress homepage and have a problem. All is working fine apart from on the write page.

    I found the fix in the forums (but lost the link so am searching to thank them!):

    After upgrading to 2.5 and having the visual editor problem, download 2.5 RC1 from and then transfer ONLY the /js/tinymce/ folder.

    I have done so, and now it works great!

    dang! i was hoping that tinymce fix would work for me but no luck. I can’t post or edit in visual mode. The “visual” tab LOOKS active but it’s actually the “html” interface that IS active. Anyone else have a fix?
