Edit HTML Source doesn't work (3 posts)

    So I just started a WP blog and I'd like to be able to use the 'Edit HTML Source' function on the post/page screen. When I click it, the pop-up opens with a blank source box. When I highlight my text in the post, then click the HTML button, same thing. How can I edit the HTML of content already written? Is there something that may be blocking it?

    I'm not sure about your problem as I haven't had it occur, but you can turn the rich text editing off by going to the "users" tab --> and at the very bottom of the page uncheck the "Use the visual rich editor when writing". This will give you full html control, along with the standard editing buttons.

    The html source editor worked for a little while, then simply stopped working. It will appear (in a really small box that I have to stretch every time) and I can edit in it, but it no longer saves my changes.
