Support » Fixing WordPress » The visual text editor doesn’t work

  • I’m a new user, and I’ve been having trouble getting the visual text editor to work. My problem is that whatever formatting I put in the text editor (like line breaks, bold, etc.) does not show up on the actual page. It just shows up as regular text that’s all scrunched together. Can somebody give me a clue to what is wrong?

  • It would help if you point us to your site. In general, the visual text editor isn’t something I use (I build my own quicktags.js file) but it doesn’t do that for me (at least not in the relatively recent versions of WordPress.

    The wp version
    the browser you are using
    your operating system
    and a URL

    would all help someone help you.

    Okay, thanks. Here it is:

    version 2.6
    Firefox 3
    Windows XP

    It’s the text above. It’s supposed to be bolded in some parts, and it is supposed to be spaced out more.


    Does anybody actually read a few pages – or God forbid SEARCH for an issue – before asking a question like this? There are literally DOZENS of questions on the use of the visual or code editors over the last few days at a minimum.

    Sorry, I went though a bunch of pages and didn’t see anything! Plus I don’t know all the terminology and stuff either. I’m not really sure what to search for.
