WordPress 2.5 – Yet another issue!

WordPress 2.5 is finally here, and I have upgraded to it from the initial Release Candidate 1 I had installed initially. WordPress is a blessing, and I love this new version!

But, after tackling with an issue in WP 2.5 RC 1, yet another issue was waiting to be tackled in this ‘final’ 2.5 version.

The issue was with TinyMCE Visual Editor. The Visual/HTML tabs were non-functional … in short, it was messed up (as seen in the image above. Image Source)!

I found a thread in WordPress Support on this issue, and this solution worked for me. Another post and solution here as well. Following is the solution that worked for me:

1. Compression is enabled on the server. If it’s set properly (in php.ini) the compressor for TinyMCE would detect it and not try to compress the js. To check for double compression: with Firefox, go to [your-site]/wp-includes/js/tinymce/tiny_mce_config.php. Should be a large text (js) file, starting with “var tinyMCEPreInit = …” and last line starting with “tinyMCE.init({mode:”none”,…”.

If it’s not – edit tiny_mce_config.php, looking for
'compress' => true,
change to
'compress' => false,

    thanks for ping back. As for me, i think i should not upgrade my wp to this new version. i should have wait for no bugs and all plugin compatible. as for now some of my plugin having issues with 2.5.

    and i feel login to the 2.5 dashboard and write post is so slow! wp 2.3 is faster! 🙁 now i miss 2.3 😛

    I haven’t really been on Worpress 2.3 as much. The last version of WordPress that I had used considerably was 1.5.

    As for the issues with 2.5, yes I myself have faced three up till now, but I hope there won’t be any issues again.

    I am pretty content (if not happy) with WordPress 2.5. 😀

    I suggest you hang on to 2.5, you will love it more with each passing day. 😉

    yea i will just hang on 2.5

    i do not mind with the uncompatible plugin thought.

    just that my only problem now, there is no notification email send to my inbox whenever i received comment. so then i have to manually login to my dashboard to check unapproved or new comment for now.
