3.1.2 update... content creation just got difficult

Just installed 3.1.2 (automatically)... there seems to be a bug. Creating a new post, and I can add the title, but no body content. Well, I can, but I have to go from visual to html and back again. On save, visual is blank (I have to do the tab switch again to see the body content.

This was not the case yesterday, so I am guessing this update caused it.

Further info:

Using a slightly modified copy of the 2010 1.2 template (only mods were those needed to utilize the "Greg's High Performance SEO" plugin.

Other plugins active are "Akismet" and "Conditional CAPTCHA for WordPress"

Otherwise, this is an out-of-the-box install, and fresh: 3.1.1 was the initial install, and this was the first update.

3.1.2 didn't change the New Post screen as far as I can tell. Sounds like it might be a conflict with one of the active plugins or possibly an incomplete upgrade.

Can you confirm if the issue persists with the standard Twenty Ten theme and no plugins active?

I can.

I have turned off all plugins, and set the default (unmodified) 2010 2.1 template set as active.. There are no changes in the observed behaviour.. the issue continues. BTW: it affects both new and update, both post and page. The main "content" field... the title field works fine.

Also, I am unclear as to what to do with the instruction "Please answer their questions and address their concerns, then remove the keyword, below." in the pink box below...

It just means to answer questions left and then remove the reporter-feedback tag.

greuben and myself can't reproduce the issue, so it's a bit hard to diagnose. The visual/html issue is interesting though, it might be that TinyMCE (the visual editor) is screwed up somehow and the basic textarea for HTML view is fine. Can you try overwriting the site's files with a fresh copy of 3.1.2 from

Try with Mac Chrome... I just now tested in Mac Firefox, and no issue... it now appears it may be an incompatibility issue with the Chrome browser.

BTW: the above test was performed after your overwrite suggestion (I think... I downloaded from the dashboard link... the one below 'automatic update').

Clear the browser cache and test it.

If you're using Chrome dev, we've seen plenty of reports of TinyMCE borking there at times. I'm on Chrome Beta for Mac right now with no issue.

OK... clearing cache worked. Thanks for that.

Using Chrome 11.0.696.57... latest updated stable, afaik.

Any suspicions on the plugins I was using?

Oh... and sorry for the dyslexia: not 2.1. 1.2 ;)
