    I have been having a proble with my wordpress and have been unable to post recently.
    I have posted many times with no issues until last week or so.

    When I click new post the edit text box appears as usual and I start to type. But the text is invisible. The curser still moves along but I cannot see the text.

    What is the problem and has it happened to anyone else?

    Thanks

    The blog I need help with is bwfcblog.wordpress.com.

    oh, as an update i will add some images.

    To try to resolve the issue I have clicked on html editor and can see the text I type but nothing shows up in the preview. also if i then click back to visual all of the editor tools disappear.

    I have no idea what has happened but need urgent help as I cant post.

    how do i add images?

    Are you sure you haven’t set the text colour to white? White on white would not show in the visual editor, nor in the preview, but it would show in html.

    Good point!

    @nobby2020
    Please be sure that you have not fooled around with the font color in the posts in question or have not accidentally changed it to be the same color as the background color of your blog (white).

    The reason I cant see the text color changer is because I do not seem to have the wyswyg control panel anymore.

    Where I should have this….
    http://en.support.wordpress.com/visual-editor/
    (with the options to show/hide kitchen sink and all the other options like bold, italic, align etc,)

    Instead I have this….
    http://i50.tinypic.com/2ushef5.jpg (no buttons)
    or this
    http://i50.tinypic.com/2z4wcxi.jpg (limited buttons)

    I dont understand what has gone on? Has WordPress changed?

    your welcome!

    Have you tried the standard “reset” when things don’t work as expected?

    Log out of wordpress, clear your browser cache and cookies, restart your browser and then try again.

    I think its a problem with your browser. If the problem persists, even after resetting IE… try a different browser like Google Chrome and check! Im almost sure, its a browser issue.

    @At knashermac2009 and ashishjena
    At present there are bloggers who have been reporting they are experiencing problems with IE6 (as usual), and IE8, and Chrome. In addition, there are those who have had a recent AVG anti-virus update are likewise experiencing problems.
