Support » Fixing WordPress » WP update & tinyMCE/WP-edit

  • After updating to new WP version, some of my visual editor buttons disappeared. Discovered i had to get the plugin for WP_edit, which supposedly takes the place of TinyMCE, which is not supported in the upgrade. Did that, and reset everything, got my visual editing icons back (some of them anyway.) then, i noticed that my previous posts, when in editing mode were all screwed up. None of the images were aligned properly. IT was that way on the last several posts i checked. They seem to appear on the site properly, but in the editing screen they are totally screwed, and there is no edit button on each image to open it and realign it–not that i would do that with every freaking image in every freaking post. {{My question is, is there a way to get the edit page to show things as they are again, in the post? I won’t be able to edit any posts without redoing the whole thing again, otherwise.}}

    This is precisely why i put off updating WP each time they have a new one–i spend days or weeks trying to get everythign working again.

    Since the update to WordPress 3.9, and the inclusion of the update of the TinyMCE editor from version 3 to version 4; much has changed.

    What I would suggest, is going to a page that is ‘inconsistent’.. and switching back and forth between visual and text views. This will cause the WordPress filters to ‘clean up’ the content.

    Now, DO NOT SAVE the post/page unless you are happy with the results. At least this will give you an idea of what you are facing.

    not happy with the results because nothing happened. It’s still the same. Switching back and forth between visual and text didn’t change a thing. Am I the only one having this problem?

    found this on another site, and tried it–didn’t work until i actually updated the Weaver Theme. Then it showed up properly in visual editor. That’s all I know at this point, It SEEMS to be working. Maybe pass this along to others:

    I was able to fix the problem by using the following recommendations mentioned above:

    1. Install “use Google Libraries” plugin.
    2. Activate “Twenty Eleven” Theme.
    3. Clear browser cache.
    4. try the tabs, and everything worked.
    5. Switch back to my usual theme, everything still worked!

    I hope this helps.
