[Resolved] Visual toolbar not showing all the buttons.
I apologize if this has been asked before, I tried searching but could not find a solution for my particular problem.
I have just newly installed WP 2.5.1. This is not an upgrade. I also installed several plugins like WPG2 (embedded gallery), Akismet, AddThis Social Bookmarking Widget, Subscribe2, and Subscribe To Comments.
When I go to write a story I can see the Visual and HTML tabs. When I choose the HTML tab I see a lot of buttons in the toolbar for things like bold, italics, links, etc. However, if I click on the Visual tab I only see three buttons in the toolbar, they are Insert More Tag, Show Hide Kitchen Sink, and Gallery Images. I should be seeing a lot more like Bold, Italics, Spell checking, etc. At least I assume I should see more because the screen shot at http://www.wordpress.org shows a lot more options , you may have to refresh the page until the image of the editor appears.
Does anyone know how to turn on the additional buttons?
Everything else works fine I can still enter text and save and publish in the visual editor.
I can include Screen Shots if you need them.
im having the same problem, could not find my subscribe2 button…. have you figured it our ryanmc…
anyone able to help?
I am also having 2.51 toolbar problems. My business blog at wordpress.com has a 2 line toolbar, complete with spell check.
my daughter’s blog only has b i link b-quote code ol ul li
Yes I have emptied the browser cache, cookies, and the ashtray. Same for firefox or IE.
Any thoughts would be great.
Deactivate all widgets and see if it works. If not, leave the widgets turned off and use the default theme to see if that works.
I deactivated all my plugins, cleared my cache and did a force refresh. No toolbar. So leaving plugins disabled I switched to the default template, cleared the cache and did a force refresh. Still no toolbar.
Have you tried a different browser like FF?
I have no plugins or widgets active
Default theme in use.
i’ve even done a re-upgrade of 2.51
something is wrong beyond the easy answers.
thanks for the help.
Please read this http://wordpress.org/support/topic/165172?replies=18
There is some good advice here about caches.
Pay paticular attention to the part about reloading wp-includes and wp-admin. You must delete these in an upgrade not just copy over. Do not delete wp-content.
I found this piece of code in my webpage
// <![CDATA[ if ( typeof tinyMCE != "undefined" ) document.getElementById("quicktags").style.display="none"; // ]]>
When I use firebug to change the “none” to “block” all the buttons show up.
This code doesn’t make any sense? It says hide the buttons if tinyMCE is anything but undefined.
Ok I did a little more digging. I found that the code is inserted by a function called the_editor
<?php the_editor($post->post_content); ?>
in edit-form-advanced.php line 198
But for the life of me I cannot find where that function is defined, I have done a full text search of every file in the wordpress directory. I only know that if I comment out that line the editor goes away and so does that code.
If someone who knows wordpress better than I can help me find the_editor function I would appreciate it.
Nevermind, I found it. I guess I have not synced my hard drive all the way. Anyways, I also found the code
in general-template.php line 958
but now I am thinking that these are the wrong buttons because they don’t look anything like what I see on the front page of the Wrodpress.org website and I still don’t have a spell check button.
Here is a picture of what I see
Here is a picture of what is on the wordpress website
So back to square one. Any help would be appreciated.
Sorry I messed up the links above. I wish I could preview posts before I send them.
