Support » Fixing WordPress » Visual Editor Not Working 3.3.1

  • Resolved sethdickens


    HI Folks,

    My visual editor won’t activate when I click on it after an upgrade to 3.3.1

    I have tried:

      Using only the standard WP theme
      Deactivating all Plugins
      Checking that it’s not been selected by mistake as a part of my profile
      Re-installing via the dashboard
      Clearing my browser cache

    Does anyone else have an idea why this might be happening? Your help and suggestions are greatly appreciated!

  • Well – I kept on reading and reading…

    In this topic here: they mentioned a problem with Ad blockers, seriously clearing your browser cache, and refreshing using f5 a whole load of times for a problem like this

    So I cleared everything that was in my cache (not just the last hour)I pressed f5 as well as disabling my beloved ad blocker and hey presto, it seems to have done the trick.

    I have no idea why this might be, but there we go. It seems to be the WP equivalent of “turning it off and on again”

    over the last few days my site has developed problems which began with visual editor and related icons disapperaing and white screen as described above and now has spread to loss of functionality in other areas such as widget menus which I cannot open. I have tried a number of the solutions suggested but nothing works. I am scared to reinstall wordpress with a lower version because of customised plugins and security issues which my hosting provider warned me about. It is not clear if upgrade would really resolve my problem anyway. Has anyone found a better answer to this problem. I really need to find a fix for this as my website is dying before my eyes. Apologies but I am new to this world so do not know etiquette yet and it appears from growing number of reports on net that this is a real problem with 3.3.1

    Hey, everyone, after having problems with 3.3.1 and the viz editor, tried all of the solutions but failed, stumbled over this:
    define( ‘CONCATENATE_SCRIPTS’, false );

    placed in wp-config.php

    And it solved my problem.

    Thanks to this person

    Hope it works for you.

    Unfortunately, I celebrated too soon. Reset my browser (complete delete) and the problem came back again. Had to redefine language in wp-config as en_EN for it to work again. Obviously, WP changed the language to German but still thought it was English.

    Recap of problem: viz editor has problem and also incoming links / wordpress blog feed don’t show when I define language as German in wp-config. Problem disappears when defined as English. Can’t increase server memory as hosting provider will only allow this if I get my own server. At the mo, the memory limit is set at 32 mb.
