Just installed a WordPress for a friend but the visual editor is not showing up. I encounter wordpress’s visual editor not showing many times and this problem only happen on WordPress 2.8 and above with fresh install. After reading the WordPress documentation and figure out, just a line of code and you will be able to fix this broken visual editor in wordpress.
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)
- 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.

WOW. it worked perfectly !! you are the best. thx
Thanks so much for this…saved me some serious aggravation!
If this happened only in Firefox, try this:
In Firefox address bar type:
Filter the results with:
Any fields that are BOLD need to be RESET. RIGHT CLICK and RESET each BOLD field.
Step 1 : Change the theme
Step 2 : Clear the cache
Step 3 : Go to your editor
Step 4 : Change to ‘HTML’
Step 5 : Change to ” Visual Editor’
Step 6 : Now you can find the Visual Editor Options
Step 7 : Change to your original theme
If Problem Persists, Add ‘ WP-Super Edit / Use Google Library ‘ Plugins, then check it. 🙂
Damn dude, you made my day with this, awesomeness!
Many, many many thanks!
Worked for me!
worked great. thnx
So many thanks! The only way i found that really works!! :))
you save my website bro’
Thanks for that – problem solved!
I’m using v2.9.1 and have just had to move my install of WP from a WAMP server to a Linux one, then noticed that the visual editor wasn’t appearing. Did a quick search on (screw)roogle for this problem and 15 million results were returned 🙂
Thanks bro, you are awesome…
This tips really works on one of my domain 🙂
Thank you! This has been driving me nuts.
Totally agree with AJ Kohn. All other advices are similar: “deactivate your plugins and re-install WordPress” And none of that works. You should probably put this fix on the wordpress forum. It’ll help many.
hi Mark, the wp-config.php is not in your theme folder.
normally this file is located at /home/urname/public_html/wp-config.php
depending on where you install your wordpress.
I don’t seem to have a wp-config.php Am I an idiot and looking in the wrong place or does my theme use something else? help!
Rich, try to logout and clear your browser Cache then login again.
Double check if your profile use visual editor.
If this continues, u probably need to reinstall your wordpress …
I’m running 3.05 and don’t recall when the visual editor left me, but I applied the fix, refreshed and don’t have the option to use HTML or Visual Editor. I also logged out of my site, logged back in and it isn’t there. Any other ideas? Thanks in advance.
Did this and it worked after upgrading to 3.05. Amazed that this is the only resource to fix this bug. Thank you!
Perfect, you’re a legend!
This works great even on 3.0.5 install… bless you!
Hey u r a superstar! Its worked for me! Love u!

This really worked! I had a blank visual editor(all the text turned into white) and the visual/html tab & the drop down arrows of the menus stopped working but this totally fixed it.

I’m running wordpress Version 3.0.1
& the dam WordPress visual editor stopped showing up.
I was thinking maybe it was one of my plug-ins.
would have never thought it would have been something this easy to fix.
would have been nice if WP would had toled us somewhere.
Big Thanks for the InFo Dude 😉
This worked! You are awesome. My visual editor is now working as before.
Thanks for this. I’ve spent an hour trying to find an answer after I upgraded a WP installation this morning. This is the solution that works for me.
Just wanted to thank you for sharing this – it absolutely worked for me on a client site. Much appreciated!
