Support » Fixing WordPress » Visual View and Button Gone in Page Editor

  • When I try to edit a page the Visual View there is nothing there. All of the buttons are gone and there is nothing there to view. I can see the info in HTML View but there are no buttons available either. I have looked thru other posts and tried the following: Cleared history and cache. Disabled plugins. Nothing seems to work. I have tried 2 different browers and 2 different computers. The page editor was fine yesterday. Any ideas??

  • Have you tried:

    – deactivating all plugins to see if this resolves the problem. If this works, re-activate the plugins one by one until you find the problematic plugin(s).

    – switching to the Twenty Eleven theme to rule out any theme-specific problems.

    resetting the plugins folder by FTP or PhpMyAdmin. Sometimes, an apparently inactive plugin can still cause problems.

    – re-uploading all files & folders – except the wp-content folder – from a fresh download of WordPress.

    I am using the Twenty Eleven theme and have tried everything that you mentioned above except re-installing a new WordPress. Is it normal for this type of problem to happen from one log in to the next?? TX!!!!

    No – it isn’t. What is your site url?

    There appears to be an issue with your site url. Did you change it after you installed WordPress?

    No….I just started building the site last week. I can see the site by clicking the link in above post fine. Even the page editor worked fine last night but today the visual editor is gone.

    I’m seeing unexplained line breaks following your root url in the source of your pages. Try re-uploading all files & folders – except the wp-content folder – from a fresh download of WordPress. And re-upload a fresh, unpacked, copy of the Twenty Eleven folder to wp-content/themes using FTP or whatever file management application your host provides.

    I have the same problem.

    It just started yesterday.

    It is really strange.

    Please start your own post.

    Do not worry, it was a plugin and i disabled it.
    You can close “your” post.

    I’m glad you sorted it out but kmessinger is correct.

    It’s not his post and instead of interrupting someone else’s topic, you’d have been better served if you started your own.
