Support » Fixing WordPress » Cannot see png images on Dashboard and No Visual Toolbar for Posts

  • The images which I am used to seeing with previous versions on WP are not visible. All images with a .png file name leave a small box with multi colored blocks. Also I am not given a tool bar on the Visual tab for Posts only HTML formatting option.

    Wondering if this is part of the latest version or if there is something I need to update or change.

    I am in the process of building the site. Here is the site page, although not sure how you will be able to see the Admin Dashboard.

    Download WordPress again and delete then replace your copies of the /wp-admin/ and /wp-includes/ directories with fresh copies from the download.

    Вelete cache

    Neither of these options worked 🙁

    Have you tried in any other browsers?

    I’m going through the same issues on Firefox, Safari, and Chrome. I’ve had some other suggestions:

    Deactivate Plugins (didn’t work for me)
    Change theme to default to see if it goes away (haven’t done this yet)

    Below is a post that I tried to follow, but I got lost on the code when I opened it in Dreamweaver. Maybe you’ll have better luck…

    Good Luck!

    And the resolution here:

    worked for me. In the file wp-includes/js/tinymce/tiny_mce_gzip.php I changed the line:

    if ((in_array(‘gzip’, $encodings) || in_array(‘x-gzip’, $encodings) || isset($_SERVER[‘—————‘])) && function_exists(‘ob_gzhandler’) && !ini_get(‘zlib.output_compression’)) {

    to read this:

    if ((in_array(‘gzip’, $encodings) || in_array(‘x-gzip’, $encodings) || isset($_SERVER[‘—————‘])) && function_exists(‘ob_gzhandler’) && !ini_get(‘zlib.output_compression’) && get_settings(‘gzipcompression’)) {

    and that immediately solved the problem: the Visual Editor appeared just as it should.

    I spent 2 hours looking for my solution only to realize how easy it was, and how I missed it. For me my issue was to click on the last icon on tight, and it came back. Duh.
