WordPress Speed Up Service | WordPress Website Maintenance Packages WordPress visual editor not working as before the update to WP 4.9., by mitochondrial I have been experiencing serious problems with visual editor. Buttons suddenly went inactive after update to WP 4.9. Am also unable to add media files to blog post. The editor is also unable to record word count,keeping it at zero. After either publishing or saving draft post, results in a blank post. I can’t add any links also since the link button is inactive together with the other buttons. What’s the problem??
