Support » Plugin: TinyMCE Advanced » “Visual” tab empty until “Text” is clicked, then back to “Visual”

    As per another poster, since WP4.7 the visual editor is “dead”. You can create content in the text-editor but when switching to visual the text box is empty. Although the content is still there.

    Existing content shows a blank “Visual” editor but clicking on the “Text” tab shows the content, and clicking back to “Visual” then shows it. We need it show on first load… plus hide the “Text” tab.

    I tried the suggested solutions (deactivating all plugins, et) but this did not resolve the issue.

    Look for errors in the browser console: https://codex.wordpress.org/Using_Your_Browser_to_Diagnose_JavaScript_Errors

    If you see any errors, paste them here. If not, perhaps try deactivating plugins again, but this time reset the browser cache before testing every time (hold Shift and reload the page couple of times in Chrome or Firefox).

    My hack for this is forcing the text editor tab to show on top on page load via a custom function. This shows the text editor with its contents and the visual editor tab can be clicked which then shoes the formatted content. Leaving the visual tab on top throws up various JS errors.
