[closed] After Upgrade to 3.3, Visual Editor Fails (59 posts)

    I manually upgraded from 3.2.1 to 3.3, but now the visual editor does not work.

    I have also tested using the twentyeleven and twentyten themes, as well as with the Suffusion theme which my site uses. I have not been able to get the visual editor operational again.

    Anyone got any ideas? Purging the files and purging the database and then readding everything is not an option.

    I tried replacing the wp-includes folder as well to see if that would fix it, no dice.

    Same problem with 2 clients.

    1 client turned off his adblocker plugin and got it working again.

    Not sure about 2nd client yet.

    I'm confused why that would have an effect...

    Weird... when I turn off adblock plus, it fixes it... *shrugs*

    in any case, i've added the exception in adblock plus for my site (since there's no ads on it :P) so it should work now.

    OH man! Woohoo!

    I realized for the same reason that an ad blocker could cause it to be blocked, something like "internet speeder-uppers" and safe browsing doohickeys could possibly block content from a different source of some sort - but maybe more people use ad blockers than I know.

    The client is in marketing so it would be particularly funny if he blocked ads!

    Thanks for letting me know though, I'm looking forward to hearing if a different mechanism works for anyone else?

    Okay, now there's a new issue with this system. While my deactivating adblock plus, i can create a new post with the visual/html editor. But when i go to *edit* a preexisting post it does not allow me to edit either visually OR the HTML. It just hangs there with the HTML code hidden as the same color as the background, and does not actually allow for the editor to load.

    Any ideas people?

    ***ADDITIONAL ISSUES***
    When in the Edit Post interface, given the last post to this thread, I cannot edit the link that would be used to access the post either. This poses a few problems, of course, if you want to change the URL post-publishing.

  8. Did you try turning off ALL your plugins?

    the only plugin loaded is akismet. and with it off, the issue remains. But ***ONLY*** for editing posts, not for writing new ones (except when you hit "save draft", then it reloads to the edit page, and the same issue occurs).

    Also, from the master list, I checked the JSON / JQuery using the link:
    <site>/wp-admin/load-scripts.php?load=jquery, and it returned text, not a blank page, so I am assuming that jquery works in this setup, unless I am mistaken, so I know that is not an issue (another thread with a similar situation recommended checkign that JQuery works, and that if it returns a blank page then there's a problem).

    See this screenshot for a visual of what i'm talking about when at the edit post screen.

  10. That looks like After The Deadline is still on...

    Can you rename your plugins folder to plugins-OLD and see what happens?

    I did that, still nothing. Same issue.

    I concur. My editor loads extremely slowly, and doesn't load at all half the time. I don't have any type of adblocker running, and I'm using Google Chrome.

    I had other problem, all my posts deleted and can't publish a new post. There's no Publish button, only there Submit for review button...

    @dewadg and @drokkon please don't try to hijack my thread please. Instead, your issues seem separate from mine, so please post in your own topics. Thanks.

  15. What TheResistance said :)

    If you're not having 100% the same problem, please make your own post.

    That's really weird. You don't have anything in mu-plugins, do you?

    It might be worth taking into account the speed noted by drokkon - I noticed that my toolbar loads *extremely*slowly, but it does load. Like dial-up modem slowly.

    Could there be something in the programming that is timing out when trying to display the toolbar, maybe?

    @Ipstenu this was a stock WP installation, with no additional plugins installed. If such a folder exists *mu-plugins* where would I find it?

    mu-plugins is for Multisite installations.

    You had NO plugins?

    Do you have Silverlight installed on your system?

    I did mention i'm on a linux system right? And the blog is self hosted? And is running off of a linux server? Which therefore invalidates the Silverlight thing :/

    (And by no plugins, i meant on wordpress there are none other than akismet and whatever the hello one was. But they were deactivated. And on my system, I have Java, AdBlock Plus (disabled). No other plugins)

    You'd think it'd be more efficient to have one "my editor broke" thread than having the same people answer the same question 50 times. Sounds like we have the EXACT same problem, but fine.

    @drokkon Mine doesnt load at all. Yours loads slowly. Big difference.

    @TheResistance, I am having the exact same issue and have another thread. Any chance I can move my work in to this thread? I have done all the steps recommended and still No visual Editor either. I get the exact same thing as you in your attached pic.

    @kitllc In which mode, edit post mode or new post mode? Because I got the new post one working, its the edit post mode that's broken.

    And its up to the mods whether or not to allow you to work in my thread, not up to me.

    @TheResistance I get no Visual Editor anywhere.

    I am having the same problem - no visual editor. Other than that the site works perfectly well, no problems at all - but no visual editor no matter what. My only plug-in is Askimet and even with that turned off, nada. I've tried everything I could think of, but no joy.

    Because everything else is working so nicely I'd have sworn the tabs must just have been put in a new location that I couldn't see, but that doesn't seem to be the case...

    I'll add that it makes no difference whether I am editing an old post or creating a new one - no visual editor

    @EVERYONE

    Do any of you even read the threads? My issue has changed from no visual editor anywhere to no visual editor only when editing posts.

    if this is not your issue, then do not post in my thread. because that'd be hijacking my thread

    I believe I am having the same problem only for me it makes no difference if it's trying to edit an existing post or to start a new one.

    I can only see the HTML tab, when I click the visual tab nothing happens, it may as well not even be there. My screen looks the same as TheResistance's, all of my editing buttons are gone and only the media/insert link is showing.

    This is VERY frustrating.

    I have done the following:

    1) Turned off ALL plugins (no difference)
    2) Tried other themes (including TwentyTen (no difference)
    3) Other browsers, restarting (no difference)
    4) Checked preferences to make sure that the disable visual editor thingie was unchecked.

    No matter what I do, I have no visual editor.

    I do not even have the tabs...

  30. Two things I want everybody to check:

    1. Clear your browser cache. Really. Don't ask silly questions like "why", just please try it. I admit that it's thin and probably won't work. Try it anyway.

    2. Do a manual upgrade in the following manner:
    a) Get a fresh copy of 3.3's zip file.
    b) Unzip it.
    c) Using your FTP or upload tool of choice, upload the entire thing right over the top of your existing installation. Pay special attention to the files in the root directory. Not just /wp-admin and /wp-includes, but all the files in the root as well, such as wp-settings.php and all that.

    I fully admit that these suggestions may not work. But if they do, then please report back that they did.

    Additional: We've seen "editor not appearing properly" problems on these forums before, pretty much every other major release. In every case I've ever checked myself, the problem was due to an incomplete upgrade in some manner. This is why I highly recommend triple checking with suggestion #2 there, and ensuring that you have indeed upgraded *all* of the WordPress files.
