  • [Forum] New Editor Not Visible

    Hi all,

    Upgraded this morning to 4.1.4 and am now looking at a site that doesn't show the editor full-stop.

    This Great Empty Space appears across Blog, Forum and CMS.

    Could anyone please advice me ASAP how to tackle this issue - I can't do anything with my site at all right now...

    Thanks. - The Business of Your Future - Strategy Redefined.

    First, make sure you have the WYSIWYG Editor enabled here:

    Admin CP -> Settings -> Options -> Message Posting Interface Options -> Enable Clickable Message Formatting Controls

    Then make sure you have selected the Enhanced editor in your user Settings:

    Settings -> Edit Options -> Message Editor Interface -> Enhanced Interface

    If you see the editor without the images, then this means you have not uploaded the 4.1.4 'images/editor/sprite.png' file. You need to do that.

      Thanks Steve for your quick reply -

      I am still not seeing what I am supposed to see, even after following your instructions:

      Please see the screenshots above to view my current settings and the options I am given.

      Also, the sprite file was uploaded successfully.

      Could you think of something else I may have to change?

      Look forward to receiving your response as soon as possible,

      Thanks in advance,

        Create a new style with no parent:
        • Styles & Templates > Style Manager > Add New Style
        • Parent Style: No Parent Style
        • Title: Default vBulletin
        • Allow User Selection: Yes
        • Save

        Then try to create a thread using the totally default vbulletin style - do you still have the same problem?

        Please don't PM or VM me for support - I only help out in the threads.
