WYSIWYG buttons are blank

  • traypup


    Using v.2.5.10 of bbpress and v.4.6.1 of WordPress.
    Canvas v.5.11.2
    WooFramework v.6.2.8

    Has anyone seen this before (page is not live yet, so I can only link to a screen shot)

    I turned the “Add toolbar & buttons to textareas to help with HTML formatting” setting off and then on again. No change.
    It works fine in Twenty Sixteen, but I’m a little baffled as to how to troubleshoot further — Isn’t Canvas a super pared down theme? What might I be doing wrong with it?

    It could be a somewhat common CSS related issue where buttons have white text color in a theme.

    Try this custom css to see if it fixes it. Place the custom css in a custom css plugin or in a child themes style.css file.

    This is just an example and you might need additional css if the button background color changes on hover to something dark as well.

    #bbpress-forums .wp-editor-container .button {
      color: black;



    Thanks @robkk — oddly, that didn’t do anything at all to the buttons. But, I added an !important and that did the trick. Thanks again!
