WordPress Visual Editor Fix Repair Re-set Restore – From Database

There can be many reasons why the WordPress visual editor can stop working for yourself, or your users.

In the event that simply changing the setting for the Visual Editor to be “ON” or “OFF” – “visible” or “hidden” – and you would like to change that setting via the WordPress Database – for 1 user or all users – here is how it can be done.

– Search for “rich_editing” in the WordPress Database Table `wp_usermeta`
– browse results.
– find users WHERE `wp_usermeta`.`meta_key` = "rich_editing" AND `meta_value` = "false";

Set values to “true” or “false” to achieve whichever effect you want.

MySQL command to disable rich editing for all users:

UPDATE `wp_usermeta` SET `meta_value` = 'false' WHERE `meta_key` = "rich_editing";

MySQL command to enable rich editing for all users:

UPDATE `wp_usermeta` SET `meta_value` = 'true' WHERE `meta_key` = "rich_editing";

I hope this is helpful.

Have a nice day : )

Get Rid Of Admin Bar When Visiting Your WordPress Site

Get Rid Of Admin Bar When Visiting Your WordPress Site

Log in to your WordPress admin, and select:

Admin -> Edit My Profile ->

Deselect checkbook Keyboard Shortcuts / “Show Toolbar when viewing site

That disables the admin bar on the front of the site, when you are browsing.

This one really bothered me – not because it exists – but because there is 539,000 Google result pages, full of misdirection and other rants and garbage about how to get rid of the admin bar, when browsing your own WordPress site as a logged in admin. None of the ones I went through – not even the current ones – provided this simple solution.

Recommend Theme Forest Screen-ShotMany of my clients are either just beginning and without any website at all, or simply looking to renew their existing website. They are looking for a structure for their website that they will be able to use as a business front, and a foundation to build up from.

These clients are usually thinking about Color Schemes, logo usage, Social Network links, Search Engine Optimization (SEO), Email contact pages, shopping carts, credit card payment methods (just to name a few) and of course – a beautiful layout with some eye catching functionality or animation.

Mostly, clients have seen some website(s) that have features or a look that they like, and want their website to be similar or to have the same functionality as these other websites they have seen. Quite often, after first talking about layout, color and other basic needs, the very next thing they ask me is…

“Will I be able to update my Website myself? Or, will I have to hire someone like you every time I want something changed?”

My response is typically, “Have you heard of WordPress?”


As clients vary, so too does their understanding of the Internet. Some clients will ask me about Content Management Systems or use the acronym “CMS“. And most have the understanding that a CMS means, they can edit their own website content.

It seems clear – the understanding about a CMS is – If you want to edit a few basic things on your website, text, pictures etc. You can just go ahead and do it, without having to hire a technical person each time. Obviously, not having to pay money to simply change a line of text on your own website is a good idea, and frankly, why would you need a computer programmer to do that?


Computers, and computer programmers are supposed to make our lives easier, not more expensive and time consuming.

Enter the CMS.

So, I guess a bunch of programmers got together and said, “Hey, let’s make it easy for someone to change the text on their website.” After a few years and many bumps on that road, you now have some very solid, well tested and field proven Content Management Systems – like  WordPress for example.

There are many CMS’s, and I have used, programmed, installed, tweaked, debugged and customized a number of them. I am not knocking or disapproving of any other CMS’s here. I am just providing good reasons for using WordPress.
