  • Resolved dtbennett


    Hello everyone.

    First, here is the background to my question:

    I am having problems seeing the visual editor once I upgraded to WP 3.5. For the record, I disabled all plug-ins, changed to the basic theme from my Genesis theme, etc, and it still didn’t work. At any rate, I added the following to my wp-config file using Notepad++: define(‘SCRIPT_DEBUG’, true); .

    I know this is a temporary measure, but I need to leave it in the wp-config until WP is updated, or else I can’t see the buttons for the visual or text editor.

    So, my question is this: if this issue is resolved in an update to WordPress, will it overwrite my wp-config file, or will I have to go in and remove the line I added manually?

  • will it overwrite my wp-config file

    No. You will have to remove it manually.


    Thanks for the response. I will remove it before updating.

    Is there any problem with leaving that code in the wp-config file until the bug is resolved?

    None as far as I know. All you are doing is instructing WordPress to use the non-minified versions of core javascripts. The might be a tiny drop in performance but nothing that you’d really notice unless you were running benchmark tests.
