Support » Fixing WordPress » WYSIWYG not available when creating post

  • When I’m editing or creating a new post I only have two modes: Text and Visual. I don’t know what happened to the HTML mode.

    I don’t get the line of text editing controls that I’m used to seeing, e.g., bold, underline, creating a link or quotes, etc.

    How do I get these back?

    Text is merely a renamed html. It works the same way.

    Go to the far right of the icons in the visual mode and click on the kitchen sink icon.

    When I click on “visual” the letters turn red, but I don’t get any other indication that the modes have changed. I don’t get a row of icons at all.

    You should see the post container change slightly to include whichever tab you select.

    Try
    â—¾deactivating all plugins (yes, all) to see if this resolves the problem. If this works, re-activate the plugins one by one until you find the problematic plugin(s). If you can’t get into your admin dashboard, try resetting the plugins folder by FTP or PhpMyAdmin (read http://bit.ly/UhpkLl if you need help). Sometimes, an apparently inactive plugin can still cause problems. Also remember to deactivate any plugins in the mu-plugins folder if you have it. The easiest way is to rename that folder to mu-plugins-old (read http://bit.ly/WMrMM5 for more information on mu-plugins)
    â—¾switching to the Twenty Eleven theme to rule out any theme-specific problems. If you can’t log in to change themes, you can remove the theme folders via FTP so the only one is twentyeleven. That will force your site to use it.

    I’ve taken your advice and unfortunately I don’t see any effect. This may have something to do with upgrading to V3.5, but I don’t know.

    Are you using 3.5? Work thru the other suggestions here, http://wordpress.org/support/topic/troubleshooting-wordpress-35-master-list?replies=4

    Pay particular attention to the section about using your browser to detect javascript errors.
