Support » Fixing WordPress » Visual Editor Gone In WordPress 3.0.4

  • Moved my site into root directory and can now log into new admin, but Visual Editor has gone completely.

    Unticked in options and I am the Administrator.

    Found in folder wp-admin/edit.php code did not end with a “?>” does this matter?
    Have put one in thinking it would fix the situation but it didn’t.

    ?> = added this bit at the end

    What code do I need to check and change to get Visual Editor back please?

    -deactivating ALL plugins temporarily to narrow down and possibly fix the problem. If the problem goes away, activate them individually (one-by-one) to find the culprit.

    -switching to the default theme (“twentyten”) for a moment by renaming your current theme’s folder in wp-content/themes. The idea is to force WordPress to fall back to the default theme to rule out any theme-specific issue.

    thank you, none of that worked.

    really don’t understand how it can work perfectly and simply putting all the files into the root directory causes so much problems.

    resetting the plugins folder by FTP or phpMyAdmin. Sometimes, an apparently inactive plugin can still cause problems (because the hooks remain unless plugins completely removed).

    -if that does not resolve the issue, try increasing memory available for php.

    Hi, thanks to another post I found the answer. Tried absolutely everything but thanks to the other post, added this line to my config file:

    define(‘CONCATENATE_SCRIPTS’, false );

    No idea what it means, but Visual Editor is back!

    thank you for trying to help me though. Appreciated
