  • Since switching to 3.5, I can’t add photos (they simply don’t appear after I hit “insert into post”) and I can’t switch from the text mode to the visual mode.

  • AJ, I have a handful of sites, and I have the same problem on Google Chrome. However, all except for one of my sites allows me to switch b/t visual and text on Internet Explorer- HATE using that browser though!

    It looks like your site is using Super Cache – so make sure you’ve cleared that on your site/server.

    Hey AJ,

    Just reinstalled wordpress 3.5 by clicking reinstall under updates (under your dashboard), and all of my sites work on Internet Explorer now lol. I don’t know if you can stand that 1990s browser or not though! haha.

    How do you clear Super Cache? I’ve deactivated the WP Super Cache plug-in. Does that clear it?

    Sorry, I’m not very techy. 🙂

    My page editing only allows me to do text. Visual is not available at all. I do not write html so cannot do ANYTHING on my site! Help!

    Advanced Custom Fields can sometimes trigger this behavior, not sure why. But I deactivated all plugins then logged in with IE9, once I edit a post and have the visual editor selected, I can then go back and use Firefox or Chrome.
