Support » Fixing WordPress » Visual editor tab not working after upgrade wordpress

  • Hi! All. Recently i upgraded my wordpress to version 3.5.1. After upgrading, i noticed that the visual editor tab on my posts is not working. The tab is there but when i click it the word “Visual” just turn red upon clicking & does not allow me to use it. Due to this i’m having trouble uploading pictures & other media files. I have very limited knowledge of html or website maintenance. therefore the visual tab is crucial for me. The theme i’m using is Balita. Hope someone can help me solve this issue.

    my guess would be that you’ve got some plugins that are causing the problem. deactivate them all to see if the problem goes away then activate them one at a time to see which one is causing the issue.

    also check them to see if a) they’re compatible with wordpress 3.5.1 and b) the date when they were last updated. if they’re only compatible up to wp 3.4.2 or lower then they’re going to cause problems. if they haven’t been updated in over 6 weeks, start to think about finding a newer alternative that’s compatible with 3.5.1 😀

    Hi! thanks for your kind advice. I tried your method but still doesn’t solve the issue. I asked the web master who actually create the site & handed over to me for maintenance about a month back & he mentioned that the site was not meant to be used with wordpress 3.5.1 & i should not have updated to 3.5.1. Is there a way to revert back to the older version of wordpress.

    have you got a link to your site? i’m not sure what the webmaster means by “not meant to be used with 3.5.1”. if it’s the theme, try switching back to the default theme and see if that helps…

    This is the website i’m maintaining. If i revert to original theme, will it mess up my website? Sorry for noob question. i have very limited knowledge on html codings. i use wordpress’s visual tab to actually maintain the site thats why now that its not working, i’m stuck.
