Support » Fixing WordPress » Split screen html/WSYWIG, posts revert back, Blank link page

  • I have been dealing with this since the update to WordPress 3.1. This has been driving me crazy, but I have 3 problems when I am creating new posts.

    I choose “New Post” and start entering in text. If I put in my first link in the WYSIWYG editor, everything is fine, but the second link brings up this box that looks slightly different. It doesn’t have the http:// in the link area (like it normally does). If I put a link in the box and hit “Update”, the link doesn’t update. If I close that link box and reopen, the linking option works fine. It only happens the second time I link to an item.

    Sometimes, when I switch from WYSIWYG to HTML view, something happens where I suddenly see the WYSIWYG window RIGHT UNDER the HTML window – like it’s a split screen.

    When I see that happen, I know that WordPress is not going to save anything that I added. I have to copy all of the HTML code, hit update, then paste the code in the window to continue.

    Now I have been on WP for 3.5 years. I have disabled all plugins and the problem continues. I have deleted all files and installed a Fresh copy of WP.

    I am currently scouring through the WP SQL to see if there is a setting from an older plugin causing this issue, but have not found it yet.

    Really need help on this. This has now followed through 3 updates.

    Have you tried:

    – switching to the Twenty Eleven theme to rule out any theme-specific problems.

    How is changing the theme going to affect the Administration area?

    Because themes interact with the admin area as do plugins. Once we rule out plugins and themes we want to use a different browser and when possible a different computer. Also, please post a url.

    Coming back to the issue. I ran the Twenty Eleven theme and the problem stayed. So it’s not a theme problem.
