The first admin of my site has a full Visual Editor with style sheets. I create new users who are admins (their profile page has same settings with original admin) but they cannot set the style of paragrpaphs (no drop-down list with styles). Any ideas? Thanks.

  1. First of all Check If you disabled the visual editor from your profile page.

[See the Screen Shot] Here is the ScreenShot of Edit Profile Page

You ned to uncheck the box - Visual Editor, the option is located in User's Edit Profile Page.


2 - You might have been disabled the Kitchen Sink, To enable it Click on small button available in visual editor (Right most button) icon or Press - ALT+SHIFT+Z enable kitchen Sink

3 - Or try switching back to default Wordpress theme (TwentyTen or Twenty Eleven) and check if problem persists.
