Article editor incomplete after 3.x upgrade

Postby annagson » Tue Feb 13, 2018 8:00 pm


I recently tried to upgrade joomla installation to 3.8 from 2.5. However something went wrong and I decided to just copy & paste a local version of joomla 3.8 with a dummy page via FTP. (There was not much to keep from the old page in any case).

So far so good, joomla is up and working again on the server, with one exception: the article editor is missing the toggle function between html and "wysiwyg". Any ideas how to fix it?

Could you please elaborate on the steps you have followed to achieve this?

If the earlier site is not of use and if you have decided to build a new site, you must deleted all the files where Joomla! files have been copied.

Also, have you copied the database content?
