Content editor text not displaying (3 posts)

    Hi all,

    A problem has come up which wasn't there before - when I try to edit a post or page, the big content editor box where the content of the page normally shows up, is blank.

    When I inspect the content edtor with Firebug (in Firefox), I note that the text is there in the HTML, but that it is not visible in the browser.

    I have tried de/re-activating and updating my plugins, and have updated to the latest version of WordPress, but to no avail.

    I suspect it may have something to do with Javascript because furthermore when I click on the 'text' tab next to the 'visual' tab of the content editor, nothing happens; and when I click on 'Screen Options' at top-right, nothing happens either.

    Has anybody had any experience of this problem, or an idea of what might be causing it?

    Any suggestions or help would be very gratefully received.


    Rory. :)

    Thanks for getting back to me with that info. Step 2 of the Javascript error diagnosis instructions (http://codex.wordpress.org/Using_Your_Browser_to_Diagnose_JavaScript_Errors) - that is, enabling script debugging in wp-config.php, has fixed the problem.

    The advice on that page is to report the fact that script debugging fixed the problem here in a troubleshooting thread.

    Now having done that, is anybody able to advise on how the problem might be fixed permanently, assuming this script debugging is intended as a temporary measure?

    Many thanks again,

    Rory. :)
