Support » Installing WordPress » No WYSIWYG Editor Icons WP 2.2.3

  • I just installed the update to 2.2.3 and now when I try to post there is no WYSIWYG editor icons. The two tabs are there but you cannot select either one. If I save and continue I get some html code appearing but no icons.

  • Have you tried flushing the browser cache?

    Ctrl-F5 is a shortcut to force a reload of the page in IE and FF. Try that?

    My original post was using Firefox so I tried IE and get the same result. Trying a forced refresh does not change anything either.

    There is the possibility all the 2.2.3 WordPress files didn’t get completely uploaded.

    I checked the Admin folder and all of the files are there and new if need to be.

    I am having the same problem since upgrading half and hour ago, together with this one

    I upgraded from 2.2.2 to 2.2.3.All files were uploaded correctly but I just overwrote the old ones.

    I just did a fresh install, deleted the old ones first,flushed the cache etc – still the editor icons won’t work….

    I got it fixed!

    Firefox gave me a hint on the extras>errors display…

    On the base of this solution by jkeegan2

    Go to wp-includes\js\tinymce\tiny_mce_gzip.php and open the php-file.

    Find the line given here:
    (should be line 87)

    As you can see in previous versions this line ends with

    && !ini_get('zlib.output_compression')) {

    In WP Version 2.2.3 it ends with
    && ini_get('output_handler') != 'ob_gzhandler') {

    REMOVE this added code at the end and REPLACE it with
    && get_settings('gzipcompression')) {
    (as shown on the trac-site)

    Save/upload the changed “tiny_mce_gzip.php” and refresh the ‘writing post’-interface with ctrl+F5 > visual editor should be back.

    I appreciate the suggestion. Still, I’d rather see the bug fixed in the 2.2.3. core code rather than I don’t know how many WordPress users having to make individual changes there…

    It is good to know what the problem is.

    I agree with halingold about fixing the file that should have been fixed in the release. While I await the fix I have installed the Dean’s FCKEditor For WordPress plugin. If you need it the link is here.

    That’s absolutely right. Security reasons is okay, but if it turns out I’m actually sort of downgrading…
    I chose wordpress for not having to get in touch with programming but just writing and layouting, I hope this whole trouble lessens…

    Thanks a million texbiker!
    It’s new to me and I love it. I think I’m going to use it regardless of the bug being fixed or not…

    By the way, a direct link to the plugin page is here.
