formatting options unavailable

  • marnieg


    Wordpress: 4.7.1
    bbPress: 2.5.12-6148
    theme: Zippy Courses

    I have a new bbPress forum and just recently lost the formatting options–there’s just an empty rectangle where the formatting buttons formerly were. Under Forums and then Settings I have several things checked that don’t seem to be available in the forum. For instance: “Add toolbar & buttons to textareas to help with HTML formatting” and “Embed media (YouTube, Twitter, Flickr, etc…) directly into topics and replies” are selected. But these aren’t available.

    I would love any direction so I can add basic formatting functionality. I added Forum Beginner Posts plugin but that didn’t change anything so I uninstalled it.

    ok, so something must have happened to make you lose them. Have you installed other plugins or changed themes?


    Deactivate all but bbpress and see if this fixes. if it does, re-enable one at a time to see which is causing the error.


    If plugins don’t pinpoint the problem, as a test switch to a default theme such as twentyfifteen, and see if this fixes.

    Then come back
