In my WordPress installation when I want to post something there are only html style to write.

I see in video tutorial that a WYSIWYG editor should appear on the screen so I can write easily as I write in word processor.

So seems the visual editor in missing from my post edit screen. How do I get that back?

Dashboard>>Users>>Edit User: is "Disable the visual editor when writing" ticked?

  • I don’t see this option in user profiles anymore.

  • Ah, this is available on single-site installations only. Looks like a bug. Edit No, I see it on some multi-site installation, not on all.

The editor have two tabs to switch from visual to html (text) and back, see the screenshot, is more understandable.
