Support » Fixing WordPress » TinyMCE inserts bad links, breaks TinyMCE?

  • Following an upgrade, I again lost the TinyMCE editor. (I have had this problem before)

    I notice links to two non-existent files in the html head — of the main document, not the iframe that tinyMCE inserts.

    The lines are:

    <script id="mce_0" type="text/javascript" src=".../wp-includes/js/tinymce/langs/en.js?ver=359-20131026"></script>
    <script id="mce_13" type="text/javascript" src=".../wp-includes/js/tinymce/themes/advanced/langs/en.js?ver=359-20131026"></script>

    (well, not exactly. I replaced a portion of the URL with “…”)

    I have not been able to find a fix for this problem, but I have found a suggestion that TinyMCE will do this sometimes.

    Is this is what happens here?
    If I create BOTH of these as copies of en.js, then the problem goes away
    and, most interestingly <b>these links no longer show up in the document head</b>

    Apparantly, if they are there, TinyMCE doesn’t need them. If they are not there, TinyMCE wants them. Like some kind of security blanket.

    What has made TinyMCE feel so insecure? How can I fix the problem?
