Cant see text When writing a new post

    I have tried the following…

    1. I tried a “trick” sent to me by someone at support help…
    “It seems that some parts of the visual editor are not loading.
    Here’s a little trick that may bring them back:
    Go to your profile and check the “Always use https…” checkbox.
    Try editing a post – make sure you wait a little while when first going to the editor so that all the files are loaded.
    If that works – just untick the box in your profile again”

    Nothing happened (ie. Didn’t work)

    2. I logged out, cleared cache and cookies, logged back in and still not fixed.
    3. I logged in using firefox and encountered the same issue.

    So still no luck.

    Is there anything that I can do? Like re install wordpress or will I lose informations or is it not installed locally?

    as a side question – can any of you drag your mouse over text to highlight it and copy it whilst you are in this forum? when you are writing a reply? I dont seem to be able to but I can do it as usual on all other sites.

    As you are already in dialog with support Staff, it seems to me that you ought to continue working on this issue with Staff, and post the results into this thread.

    My reply to “as a side question” is yes I can select (highlight), copy and paste without any difficulty.

    Question: How old is your mouse? A couple of years ago I went crazy with problems until someone suggested I try another mouse – BINGO! It seems the first one was a dud.

    Is it possible to reinstall wordpress?

    Regarding the mouse every other website in the world works, I use it daily for design projects etc so it gets a pretty decent test and it works fine. Its just on WP i cant highlight text and it seems to coincide with the problem with writing posts.

    Thanks for keep ing in touch.

    I have only had 2 replies from staff the last one being about 30 hours ago.

    You’ve contacted support and they are going to be the one’s that help fix this problem. As far as I know, there is nothing more we here in the forums can do. Since you have had contact with them, they know about the problem and are going to do their best to resolve it for you. I know you are frustrated, try and be patient while they work on the issue.

    So nobody knows what the actual problem is being caused by?

    You have already been in contact with Staff on this matter, right?
    https://en.forums.wordpress.com/topic/cant-see-text-when-writing-a-new-post?replies=30#post-420533
    Then why are you posting here rather than pursuing the problem with Staff?

    i am following both avenues.

    The first two mails I sent to staff got one reply each.
    I responded to them immediately but got no response since.
    That is 2 days ago.
    Its like they just gave up.

    Eventually somebody on here may be experiencing the same thing and find a fix.

    I sure hope so because your situation is not one that’s enviable. :(

    Bizarre, I can now highlight text. But I still have the problem with the vis editor.
    I have not made any changes since earlier when I couldnt highlight text, bus suddenly its working.
