[resolved] Visual and Text tabs missing from Page/Post editor (3 posts)

    All the visual editing icons are missing from my admin editor of Page & Posts. The only option I have is hand coding (i.e. Text input).

    Any ideas as to what could cause this and also how to repair??

    I have tried reinstalling 3.9.1 which made no difference.

    Thanks in advance!

    After reading various posts about this, I disabled (or deleted) all my plugins to no avail, only to finally come across someone saying there's a checkbox in Profile to disable the Visual Editor! I'm certain I didn't check it by mistake - did the last update to 3.9.1 tick it by default?

    Thank you!
    I was having this same issue with a fresh install of 3.9.1. I remember having to do this one other time.

    This seems like a pretty obscure and mislocated 'fix' option for the issue. I spent a couple hours searching for the fix (most the results were about the 'visual' tab not operating correctly), and trying the typical troubleshooting things like deactivating all plugins and reverting to the the default theme. Reinstalled and all that fun stuff. Remembering this would have saved me a boatload of time!
