  • I am having various issues with my blog and therefore I’m not able to do anything right now. Issues include:

    1. Not being able to edit posts.
    2. Not being able to write new posts.
    3. Tool bar is missing.
    4. Can’t switch between text and visual.
    5. Add media button doesn’t work.
    6. Can’t view text.

    Activating a new theme brings the same results

    Try deactivating all plugins. If that resolves the issue, reactivate each one individually until you find the cause.

    If that does not resolve the issue, try switching to the Twenty Sixteen theme to rule-out a theme-specific issue (theme functions can interfere like plugins).

    If neither of those make any difference, try downloading WordPress again, access your server via SFTP or FTP, or a file manager in your hosting account’s control panel, and delete then replace your copies of everything on the server except the wp-config.php file and the /wp-content/ directory with fresh copies from the download. This will effectively replace all of your core files without damaging your content and settings.

    Some uploaders tend to be unreliable when overwriting files, so don’t forget to delete the original files before replacing them.
