Cannot Type in the Blog Enter Text Field

    Just upgraded last night. Tried to post a blog today. I can enter the TITLE of the blog, but I cannot enter anything into the main text body field. I also click on the “Insert Media” icon and nothing happens. Any assistance?

    Just a wild guess, here:

    Are you currently using a commercial theme that includes extra menu items that were added to the editor by the theme – e.g. short-code menus, etc..?

    Just to test and verify, temporarily switch to the Twenty Eleven or Twenty Twelve theme and then navigate to a post or page and see if the editor functionality is back.

    It’s a custom theme, built for me…so I’m assuming there are “extra menu items”….I totally don’t know if I feel comfortable “switching themes”…maybe I’ll just contact my developer if that’s the issue.

    I understand… entirely up to you. Switching themes usually has no lasting effect as long as you change nothing else in the interim. Normal diagnostic steps usually include switching to a default theme to verify (in)consistent behavior. If it’s any consolation, I encountered an almost identical circumstance on one of my 3.5 upgrades on a site using a custom theme that featured developer added options to the editor menu. I can add or alter a title, however the “text area” in the editor itself cannot be selected, preventing adding any content. Very similar issue.

    actually, I have the same problem and I have changed the theme to the official but the problem didn’t change and still can’t write!

    I have the EXACT same problem. Just set up a new domain/hosting and installed a new theme from organicthemes.com. Went to edit my first post and could type in a post title, but my cursor will not show up in the post body field and I cannot type into it. I also click on the “Add Media” button and nothing happens.

    So you are saying this is a problem with the theme I am using?? That shouldn’t be the case… it is an expensive theme and a professional website builder helped me install it and has used it before with no problem.

    @jessica Eve – not necessarily – and that’s why you need to start a new thread per http://codex.wordpress.org/Forum_Welcome#Where_To_Post
