Support » Fixing WordPress » WP visual editor not functioning

  • I have two WP sites, both using Genesis but different child templates. One site is fine, the other has developed gremlins.

    I am unable to add or edit posts/pages using the visual editor. Cannot paste post/page either.

    The only way to view post/page is with the HTML editor.

    WYSIWYG with all the “buttons” for bold, italic, format, etc is not visible.

    Site is function from visitor side but post/page edits on admin is not working.

    First check your user setting to make sure the visual editor is not turned off.

    Then try
    – 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 default 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.

    Thanks. Took some time, but it was a YouTube plugin that was recently updated that caused the problem.

    YouTube embedplu v 2.1 is the culprit.
