Tagged: Visual Editor not working
For some reason in 2 of my genesis based child themed sites now my Visual Editor is not working; the html editor is working fine. Anyone have any experience with that?
I'm latest version of wordpress in both sites.
I did add All In One Security Plugin which added code to my .htaccess file... I can post that if necessary
Have you deactivated all your plugins to rule out a conflict? A recent upgrade to WordPress caused an issue with a number of sites I provided support for. Deactivating plugins resolved the issue - it appeared that some plugins broke with the most recent update to WordPress.
No I have not, I'm always so paranoid about deactivating plugins that when I reactive them it will break something. Did you have that exact issue with any of the sites you help with - the visual editor going blank? (html one works)
Yes - the visual editor stopped working, but the html tab worked. Two instances with two different plugins.
So if I deactivate my plugins will they all retain their settings and or cause me any issues?
Wonder which plugin might be causing this to happen ...
Deactivating plugins will still retain their settings.
OK I knew that was the case, just super paranoid.... I see now that this was a widespread issue with the Visual Editor.
I will give it a shot...thank you 😉 will post back with results.
OK I de-activated all the plugins and I still don't have the Visual editor. I don't use it but my client needs it...
I appreciate your help...
Any other ideas??
** I figured it out!!
The reason the visual editor was not working was because of code we added into the .htaccess file. We had to add this code due to some hacking, and needed to re-route pages to resolve to a 404 page. The code is working for that purpose, but for sure affecting the Visual Editor.
Just wanted to report back!
I'm glad you were able to figure it out!
