Support » Plugin: Gutenberg » Gutenberg broke visual editor

    Since the 5.0 update I’ve been unable to access the visual editor on any pages.

    As default I see the classic editor (I disabled Gutenberg in settings) but the visual editor tab is unresponsive. I tried installing the Classic Editor plugin (by WordPress) but it made no difference. I’ve turned all plugins on/off. Only one that made a difference is my SiteOrigin page builder, when turned off the page editor switches over to the Gutenberg editor. I have no ad blockers running while working on the site.

    I’ve tried turning classic/block editors on/off in various settings (writing, users, plugins) but the best I can do is switch between the Gutenberg editor and a broken version of the classic editor.

    Try the disable gutenberg plugin not the WP one.

    What happens when you try to access the visual editor? Are there any errors in the browser console?

    Nothing happens, it’s just a dead link.

    Every plugin has been enabled/disabled and tested. No browser extensions running. All plugins and WP install up to date.

    I tried the Disable Gutenberg plugin, that didn’t make any difference except for apparently resolving some

    Uncaught TypeError: Cannot read property ‘hasClass’ of undefined

    errors in wp-admin/load-scripts.php

    When I inspect the page I have

    Uncaught TypeError: $ is not a function

    error in the theme javascript.

    Ah, it sounds like your theme has a bug that is breaking all JavaScript on the page. It sounds like it’s assuming that jQuery is enqueued, rather than explicitly declaring that it depends on jQuery (which would cause it to be enqueued).

    The best way thing to do would be to contact your theme developer and let them know about the bug.

    Will do, thanks!
