Support » Fixing WordPress » Can’t see text in content editor (visual or text)

    Can’t see text in the editing block (unless I highlight it), no toolbar. I notice there were changes to TinyMCE with the 4.8 update, but I’m not sure what to do to work with that.

    Just updated WP to the latest, deactivated all plugins, changed to 2016 theme, tried two different browsers (Safari & Firefox), and script debug did not fix the problem.

    Safari browser error console says “Can’t find variable: tinymce. Global Code post.php:1943”

    Firefox browser error says “Reference error: tinymce is not defined. post.php:1943:1

    Try downloading WordPress again, access your server via SFTP or FTP, or a file manager in your hosting account’s control panel (consult your hosting provider’s documentation for specifics on these), and delete then replace your copies of everything on the server except the wp-config.php file and the /wp-content/ directory with fresh copies from the download. This will effectively replace all of your core files without damaging your content and settings.

    Some uploaders tend to be unreliable when overwriting files, so don’t forget to delete the original files before replacing them.
