After working on ThatLittleShop.co.za (coming soon!) for Mika, I updated WordPress to it’s latest version and then discovered that something had broken… a quick Google for “visual editor in wordpress 3.5.1” lead me to a post that addressed the issue (I assume this will be fixed in later releases).
Excerpt of the post I found :
My visual editor button is visible, but does nothing when I click it. I have deactivated all plugins and I am not running Jetpack. I’ve tried switching themes and problem persists.
Problem solved by using the following – to fix WordPress visual editor not showing, follow the steps below:
- FTP to your web server
- Download your wp-config.php and add this line of code at the bottom of the file before the “require_once” line.
define('CONCATENATE_SCRIPTS', false );
(*remember to backup the original wp-config.php)
Should look like that:
/** Sets up WordPress vars and included files. */ define('CONCATENATE_SCRIPTS', false ); require_once(ABSPATH . 'wp-settings.php');
» Once done, upload the wp-config.php to your web server again. Now refresh your WordPress page and you should see the Visual Editor now.
