    Hi, I deleted my wp-content/images folder by mistake. Now the icons on my dashboard are not showing up and my visual tab is not working. Also, on my homepage the user icon on top of a post does not show! Is there anyway I can download this folder back!!!! HELP!

    To get your images back, you may be able to contact your web host to see if they have a backup. Usually they will restore the backup for a nominal fee.

    If they aren't able to do this, do you have the images on your computer? If so, you could first replace the deleted folder by going to Dashboard > Updates and re-installing WordPress by clicking 'Re-install Now.'

    Then you could re-upload all of your images and attach them to the appropriate posts/pages.

    This would be more of a last resort, though, just because of the amount of work involved so check with your web host first.

    I contacted the web host and they don't have a backup.

    All of my images for my posts are there. The main thing that I noticed (that's really bothering me) is the visual tab not working!

    Can this be another issue having nothing to do with wp-content folder? I can switch from html and visual but no icons are showing up and I can't write in visual mode.

    This is my main issue.

    Ah, I see. I would recommend re-installing WordPress via Dashboard > Updates > Re-install Now

    If that doesn't solve it, try renaming your plugins folder to temporarily disable all of your plugins.
