Tech Tip: Disappearing Visual Menu WordPress

I use WordPress a lot. Normally I let WordPress host the sites I create there because it works better all the way around, but I work with one group that insists on having it hosted on personal website. I don’t know that this problem couldn’t happen on a hosted by WordPress blog, but every post I found bemoaning this had happened to them was on a hosted personal website. Since my group had updated to the last version of WordPress, the visual menu toolbar had disappeared. Which meant I had to type in everything in html code. I hadn’t typed so much code since library school. 🙂 It was driving me nuts. Guess my time away from online gave me a fresh prospective to find it.

By the way, I solved a problem I was having on a hosted WordPress website, so to share the answer.

If your visual menu has disappeared from posts:

  1. Go to your user profile
  2. Check box in front of “Hide Visual Menu While Writing”
  3. Update profile
  4. Uncheck box in front of “Hide Visual Menu While Writing”
  5. Update profile.

It should be fixed.
