I have just upgraded from 2.4.7 (I think its .7, the version does not show in the admin so its either .6 or .7), and now i get no content field in the admin. I thought maybe i should add the admin account into 'Content Authors' but i still don't get the editor. I only get a 'Metadata' drop down group after the 'Navigation Label' field (see attached image) - (I also checked the other TABs incase it was hiding).

So I then did a clean install of 3.0.1 and after complaining about a missing rewrite module (im running iis7 with URL Rewrite module) it seems to work ok, it shows the content field. there are no script errors or missing files (fro mthe console etc).

It is a VERY simple site, and the only change i have made is to create a new theme from the tutorial with 2 content pages, and added a few pages.

The upgrade i did => remove folders: cms, mssql, sapphire and copy in new cms and framework. Then change 'sapphire' to 'framework' in web.config (and .htaaccess for the sake of completeness).

What else should I need to do to get the tineMCE content editor working??

Has no one else had this issue?

Try using 3.0.2, specifically the 3.0.2 index.php. I'm fairly sure this bug got fixed in it.
