Support » Fixing WordPress » can't see my text when i type a new post in admin panel

  • Inside the admin panel when i select new post and start typing the text doesn’t appear.

    If i highlight the area ( left click on mouse and hold. then move over text ) it does appear so it is being entered.

    Also the top bar where you select bold / italic text / hyper link etc is not there . all i see is upload/insert for media.

    Also the Visual and HTML selection. I can not select HTML. I can see it. But when i click on it nothing happens.

    What I’ve tried it this.

    1st: I thought a plugin might be causing this. So i disabled all plugin .. it still didn’t work.

    Then i thought the theme might be causing an issue so I return the site back to it’s default theme.. This still didn’t fix it.

    This was working at the start and started happening over a month ago but i didn’t do anything about it.

    It’s not just my PC as all my writers are reporting the same.

    I’m using the lastest update released and all my plugin are up to date

    What can I do ?

    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 Twenty Eleven 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 the wp-admin and wp-includes folders from a fresh download of WordPress.

    Hey, thanks for the reply.

    I have now tried all these and it’s still the same.

    I downloaded the latest wordpress from the site and uploaded the 2 folders. Didn’t work.

    Before and after I uploaded the new folders i tried the plugin.hold thing and also tried teh default theme. Neither worked.

    Empty your browser cache
    Close your browser then re-open it.
    Try a different browser.
    Try a different machine

    If you continue to have problems despite carrying out all of these steps, try installing & activating to force a browser flush.

    I’ve tried the browser and different machines ( 5 total )

    and i’ve cleared caches.. still not working.

    I’m going to install that now.

    On a side note. I’ve another blog and its fine. I’ve never had any issues. It’s just as big and busy.

    I thought it was the theme.. but i’ve gone back to default and it’s still not working.

    I’ll post back after i try that plug in.

    YES it worked 🙂 that last plugin did the trick.

    thank you so much 🙂
