Content of Current Pages Not Showing in Editor

Hi Folks,

Hopefully this is some silly error I am making: I have not changed a page in several months. Also, since then, I have changed home computers...but I don't see how that should matter.

I just logged in as admin and the content editor shows all pages in the side bar. But, when I select a page, only the page name and navigation label are shown. The Content is missing. BUT, the website content is all there. Also, if I select a previous page version and choose to view it, it shows up fine in the content. However, if I revert a page to a previous version...the current version content is still not showing. Thus, I cannot edit a page which does not display its content in the editor. This, by the way, is an issue with all pages. (The redirect pages do show the redirect information, however.)

Please help as I cannot edit what I cannot see!

I also see that clicking the "+" sign in the side bar does not expand the list of pages. Thus, sub pages are not viewable at all in the editor. Again, the website, as it was last modified, displays just fine. It is only within the content editor that the detailed content is not visible.

Olen, this seems to be a very strange issue. Is this on a plain installation or have you got any custom code which could be effecting it?

There s no custon code other than specific modifications as suggested by the authors or this forum AND which has worked fine until now. There have certainly been no modifications at all since the editor las worked perfectly.

Still having this problem folks, and it occurs whether I use IE or Firefox, so it is not a browser issue. I adde a blog entry the other day and, after I dragged and dropped it to the main blog page, the plus sign of the blog page could be clicked to show the sub pages. But, now when I log into admin again, I still cannot click the plus signs or view/modify content. HELP!!!

I am having the same problem. Wysiwyg takes entries, but does not save them. Html window does not save (insert button does nothing). Existing content cannot be seen. version 2.3.3 no special customizations.
