Great forum. I really like.

I like it so much that I partially translated it into Ukrainian 🙂

But I can’t solve the problem with the program TinyMCE:

  1. panel TinyMCE not available
  2. unable to edit/quote/…/…/ on posts/topics I made

Checked what was recommended by the support team of this forum:

  1. deactivate all Optimizer and Minifier plugins
  2. php template file contain <?php wp_footer(); ?>before </body></html>
  3. checked list conflict plugins
  4. disabling visual editor in profile settings
  5. checked access to user/forum/usergroup/… and moderate

Chrome console errors

VM503:134 Uncaught ReferenceError: tinymce is not defined

It must be Gutenberg related; wpForo It has been working for me for several years. From Gutenberg (I supose!), it doesn't allow to edit post and the TinyMCE bar is not showing, something that is a serious problem that  the wpForo team will be working to solve.

Thank you @perfectionist,

Could you please deactivate all other plugins, switch to some default theme and check again. If it works activate plugins one by one and check after each activation.

Having exactly the same problem with a high-end theme (PenNews) when upgrading to WP 5.x

Once I switch to TwentySeventeen or I revert back to WP 4.9.9 everything is fine.

Or else, nothing in this world can make that TinyMCE editor work in wpForo on WP 5.x.

I suppose it's some WP 5.x bug involved somewhere, interferring with themes a little more complex, or something else, I don't know, the problem is that after waiting for WP 5.0.3 it still doesn't work.

The creator of my theme diagnosed that editor.min.js and tinymce.min.js file are not loading.

A palliative solution is to manually insert

<script type="text/javascript" src=""></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src=""></script>;

into the head. Go to Customizer => Header/Logo options => Add Custom code.
Maybe the wpForo team could advise us, we need to forward every idea about this incompatibility to all the involved actors.
