Re-adding TinyMCE to textarea renders visual editor invisible - fixed upstream
|Reported by:||Marko-M||Owned by:||azaozz|
Wordpress 3.5 RC3 includes TinyMCE 3.5.7. TinyMCE doesn't like to be moved around in DOM and this can be solved only by removing TinyMCE from element before any DOM manipulation. Unfortunately TinyMCE 3.5.7. contains bug that prevents removing TinyMCE instance before doing DOM manipulation and then re-adding it back. Bug is that re-adding TinyMCE causes visual editor span to have "display: none;" CSS appended (becomes invisible).
Here's link to official bug report and solution:
There is also link to commit that fixes this problem:
Bug has been fixed upstream. I can also confim that issue has been resolved in TinyMCE 3.5.8 version. It would be great if this could make into WordPress 3.5.
