  • Oh, and I did check this on IE 6 & 7 as well as Firefox 2.x

    I have deactivated and activated plugins.
    I have uninstalled and reinstalled plugins
    I have tried a complete update of TinyMCE
    I have unchecked “Use Visual Editor” and tried to use it that way.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    I have the exact same problem. No matter what I try, the problem persists, and I’ve tried basically everything that has been suggested in all the other “visual editor problem” threads.

    Whenever I load the write page Firebug gives me this:

    invalid property id
    Line 37

    When I click the “HTML” button I get this:

    tinyMCE is not defined
    Line 73

    I’ve really tried everything. Help!

    I’ve compared the output from tiny_mce_config.php and editor.js from your site (the links above) with the standard output and they are exactly the same.

    That means your browser is either trying to use a cached version (could be network cache) or you have a plugin enabled that tries to manipulate TinyMCE after it has loaded. Line 37 contains TinyMCE’s core.

    Thank you azaozz. I’m going to dump everything that messes with Visual Editor I guess.

    I have the exact same problem, it’s not cached anywhere, it happens on three different OS’es across three browsers with all plugins disabled. It’s broken, it really is.

    Very surprisingly (and embarassingly) in my case, it was indeed a plugin. I don’t know how that could’ve slipped through. Sorry for the false alarm.

    I have the exact same problem, the visual editor does not work and displays the html buttons. I did the following:

    – Ran the upgrade script successfully
    – All plugins are de-activated
    – Toggled the profile option “Use the visual editor when writing” 2 times
    – Firebug reports no JS errors
    – Cleared browser cache, verified
    – Manually refreshed the wp-includes/js/tinymce/tiny_mce_config.php file

    The output from tiny_mce_config.php is ok. How long since you upgraded to 2.5? Stale network cache may last couple of days sometimes…

    I have the exact same problem

    I’m having the exact same problem, good to hear I’m not alone.

    Most likely caching issues. Try the step by step fixes here:

    It’s not a cache issue, it doesn’t work.

    It’s a bit frustrating for people that have upgraded and have been left with a blog they can’t update anymore to see that this isn’t being taken seriously.

    Hi I have the same issue. I am using Live Writer and it’s easy to bypass the visual editor with it and blog off-line. But I still want to know how to fix the issue 😉 Johan

    I just made a post here :

    that will fix it if you’re having the same as Peter and I.
