Hey Rick,

I am baffled because on one of my sites the visual / text editing tabs are gone in the page editor, the editing options have changed and are missing things like the drop down menu to choose heading tags, paste buttons, etc.

 

This is what the "broken?" editor looks like:

[Image Can Not Be Found]

 

As far as I know this is what the editor should look like:

 

[Image Can Not Be Found]

 

Do you have any idea what happened or how I can restore the editing features on this site?

You probably have upgraded to WordPress 3.9 but are using plugins that interact with the editor that aren't compatible with it.  I sent out an email about this a couple weeks ago.

Deactivate your plugins and see if the problem goes away.

Hi Rick,

I tried deactivating all of the plugins, logged off and back in, and nothing changed.

 

Thing is I am using the exact same set of plugins on both sites that I copied the pictured from so I'm really confused why one site is fine and the other is not.

 

These are the plugins I'm using:

akismet
backupbuddy
black studio tinymce widget
codepress admin column
contact form 7
display widgets
limit login attempts
pretty link lite
regenerate thumbnails
widgets reloaded

 

Both sites are running WP 3.9.1 with Thesis 2.1.9.

 

Any ideas what I should try next?

So I figured it out...

Under the User settings the "Disable the visual editor when writing" box was checked.

I have no idea how this happened, best I can figure when the past WP upgrade that added the customizable color schemes I must have accidentally checked it... 🙁

I'm glad you figured it out.
