This thread is not about a theme I bought from ThemeForest, it’s just about a WordPress problem that I am having, which I didn’t meet before. I took a client website for just a small bunch of modifications, so I wasn’t there when WordPress was installed or when the theme was developed. But when I enter the admin area, I can not upload media, I can not edit slugs, and on top of all, the “edit” screen for pages and posts is not working: I can’t see the text I am typing, I can’t see the format buttons, I can’t use the visual/html buttons (please see attached). The website in question uses Genesis framework along with a Genesis theme child. It has a bunch of plugins installed. Now I am asking you, in your experience, what could be causing these problems?
- WordPress was installed wrong - A plugin is causing the problems - It has something to do with Genesis - ...?
Do you have
define('SCRIPT_DEBUG', true); on?
Hi Jayjdk, thanks for answering!
yep, I enabled it after I posted this thread, still no change. I found this problem on google using “white text in wordpress editor” and ”.js .tmce-active .wp-editor-area” – a bunch of people had it, but none of their solutions worked for me…
I am now trying to disable the plugins one by one…
Make sure the default WP styles are included for the editor, if these files are not present it may cause certain elements to display improperly and to not function well. Also, use your browser’s inspect element to pick up on any missing html or css.
Hmm, okay. I have a similar problem because I’m using SCRIPT _DEBUG.
Do you have this file:
- Exclusive Author
- Has been a member for 3-4 years
- Won a Competition
- Sold between 100 000 and 250 000 dollars
- Repeatedly Helped protect Envato Marketplaces against copyright violations
- Author was Featured
- Bought between 10 and 49 items
- Referred between 10 and 49 users
open you wp-config.php and set define(‘WP_DEBUG’, true); to catch any errors from php functions.
But it seems like js crash, try debuging with Firebugs or other
jayjdk saidIf this file is the problem there’s this ticket on WordPress trac http://core.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/20539 I just posted a patch in it

I had the same problem a couple of times before (white text, red underlines, no buttons), banging my head against the wall trying to figure out what went wrong. I realized, that in my case, the problem was that js file that contained code for custom TinyMCE buttons for my shortcodes was not loaded correctly. I’ve moved that file inside a folder and forgot to change the path inside functions.php.
So, if you have some custom TinyMCE buttons defined in some js file, check if it’s loaded correctly. Who knows, maybe thats the problem.
Huh.. I wonder why ThemeForest didn’t emailed me the new answers on this topic… Anyways… Uhhh, I hate to work on a theme custom made by another person! Thank you very much for all your answers guys, I am checking each and every solution and hopefully I’ll solve the problem. I’ll post here the answer, if I’ll have one…
