    You're in "Text" mode, not "Visual" mode. Normally, you would click the "Visual" button to get back to it, but your button is missing.

    I read that disabling plugins might help, but you can also try this plugin out: https://wordpress.org/plugins/use-google-libraries/

    A.
    Google this:
    wp-editor-tabs corrupt

    I think that one of those solutions should help. I also think that one of your plugins is causing the problem, as you have said that you've uninstalled and then reinstalled the WP version, but it has not helped. Therefore I don't see any other code causing the disappearance of those normal tabs.

    Can't replicate your problem on one of my test WP installed on localhost to see what could be causing it, hence can't give you an exact and a faster solution.

    B.
    Disable ALL the Plugins and see if that brings the editor-tabs back. (Visual | Text) buttons. Before disabling all the plugins, note down which plugins are activated so that you can reactivate them after doing the above debug process.
    Tip 1:
    To copy/save the name of the activated plugins' faster, go to Plugins > Installed Plugins, then click on the Active menu item on top of the plugins list, and then and save screenshots. You'll have all the details of which plugins are in active stage before you deactivate all the plugins to see what's causing the problem... That would help you much better when you're reactivating the plugins.

    Tip 2:
    When trying the above #(B), you can also change the existing theme to one of the default themes supplied by WP, e.g. twentythirteen or twentyfourteen and then try the above #(B)...

    P.S.:
    C.
    Have you installed any other editor plugin/s on the WP site? Try deactivating it/them or completely removing it before attempting the #(B)

    ** Sorry http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/members/701565-zwielicht.html **
    :)

    P.S.:
    OP, can you replicate the site on your PC under localhost (xampp, for example)?

    - Is the visual editor enabled for the current user?
    - Any code in the theme's functions.php somehow disabling the editor?

    Have you got the latest free wordpress theme installed but not activated, try activating it then re activating your theme. If you have deleted default themes except yours then download the default theme but dont activate it, this might work

    Try this Go to your admin dashboard and scroll to users then follow these steps




    1 : Click on Your Profile under users
    2 : Look for the Visual editor and make sure it is unchecked where it say " Disable the visual editor when writing "
    3 : save.


    hope this helps

    If this site uses a combination of cache plugins and/or cloudflare or other cdn services there are plenty of possible caches competing to be displayed. If you are unable to resolve this error with the feedback that has thus far been provided - it's unlikely you have the right skill set to resolve the challenge, and you should let someone with a better skill set resolve the issue.

    It's doing nobody any good to endlessly try 1000 different approaches when somebody such as myself or any other much more experienced wordpress site administrator could easily get in there and resolve the problem directly in under an hour. Just find someone to fix it for you, and tell you what the problem was so you can avoid making the same mistake in the future. Also - mistake might not be the right word as some pretty normal wordpress admin behavior can often lead to problems like this.
