Here is How to Fix the Issue – Visual Editor Does not Work in WordPress

While looking at the issue, I found the major cause was a plugin named Styles with Shortcodes for WordPress. This plugin was causing problem in my case but in your case it should have been a different one.

  1. First of all create backup of your wordpress.
  2. Second, deactivate all plugins.
  3. Now, activate all plugins one by one.
  4. After you have activated a plugin, see if visual editor is displayed. If yes, then this plugin is not causing the problem.
  5. When you are activating each plugin, you should find a plugin which is causing the problem.
  6. If that plugin is not an essential one then keep it deactivated and your problem is resolved.
  7. If plugin is essential then go through the settings of that plugin and look for the settings related to Visual Editor. Configure all related settings properly and the issue shall be resolved.
  8. In case, there is no Settings option for that plugin, look for an alternative of the plugin.

This is how I fixed Visual Editor Does not Work in WordPress issue. Try the steps above, and you shall also be able to fix the issue easily. It is all about choosing a plugin carefully. A plugin that does not offer compatibility with the version of WordPress you have often creates such issues.
