Can't change from Visual to text editor anymore

  • Since the update to WP 3.8.1 it isn’t possible to change from Visual to text editor anymore. I can click onto the tab ‘Text’ but the view stays with the visual tab.

    I tried it with 3 different browsers, and 2 different OS-X versions with a Mac-Book and an I-Mac.

    So if anybody got an Idea I would be very thankfull 🙂

    Best regards,

    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.

    Hy Esmi!

    I tried to do like you’ve told me, but this strange bug lasts on…
    Do you have any other idea?

    Thank you for your help!

    I installed the ckedit-Plugin to have access to the source-code now 🙂
    Think that it is a WP-proble, cause I tried all the thinks esmi told me but the text-button is still broken.

    Thank you esmi for your help!!

    All the best,
    F-J H.
