Support » Fixing WordPress » Visual editor not showing in 3.5.1

  • Getting this error in the java script console in Chrome when trying to edit a page:

    Uncaught ReferenceError: switchEditors is not defined post.php:280

    The visual editor does not work, neither does the add media button. I’ve tried adding:

    define(‘SCRIPT_DEBUG’, true);
    define( ‘CONCATENATE_SCRIPTS’, false );

    to my wp-config file, this did not help. I’ve tried disabling all plugins, this did not help. Any suggestions?

    Have you tried:

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

    resetting the plugins folder by FTP or PhpMyAdmin. Sometimes, an apparently inactive plugin can still cause problems.

    – re-uploading all files & folders – except the wp-content folder – from a fresh download of WordPress. Make sure that you delete the old copies of files & folder before uploading the new ones.

    i am also facing the same problem

    I ended up having to re-install a fresh WP core installation, and then upload my backup of the wp-content folder and import my old DB file (phpMyAdmin), and then my visual editor came back.
