    I’m having the same problem, but it doesn’t look like this thread ended with a solution. (direct email?)

    The only way to get the visual tab to work in the classic editor is to disable the Weaver Xtreme theme and switch to one of the default themes.


    As far as we know, the Classic Editor plugin works perfectly with Weaver Xtreme.

    When you open the Dashboard -> Pages (or Posts) list, after installing the Classic Editor plugin, you should see a tag to the right of each title showing if the page is Block or Classic. You are also give a choice to open that page in either editor. When editing the page, there also will be an option to switch editors.

    There is another possibility. Weaver Xtreme supports specific Per Page and Per Posts optoins, one of which is “Weaver Xtreme Options for this Page -> Misc Options -> Disable Visual Editor for this page.”. If that is checked, the visual editor tab is disabled. The point of this option it to allow custom HTML in a page to be easily edited and not escaped out on a visual page.


    I have no problem accessing the visual and text tab using the classic editor plugin on Xtreme.

    If you do, the issue may lay elsewhere.

    Make sure all the page editing page options are checked in the screen options at the top.

    Try deactivating All non weaver plugin to see if that fixes the problem, and if so reactivate one by one



    Thank you so much for responding to this. I’ve been having a terrible time. I’ve been using Weaver for 10 years. I usually use it with the SiteOrigin Page Builder but this client wanted Elementor, which I absolutely loathe… We agreed to use WPBakery Builder. It was working perfectly for the first three months, and then all of a sudden, the text block editor stopped allowing me to edit in the visual tab. I have Classic editor installed, but it doesn’t show up as an option in the page list like you mentioned. See screenshot below.

    Here is another screenshot of what it looks like when I try to edit the text block editor.
    (Note: this screenshot also shows the other suggestion you made regarding the unchecked option under Misc Options in Weaver Extreme Options. You can see “disable visual editor” is not checked.)

    Lastly, I tried deactivating all of the other plugins, but nothing allows me to see the visual tab except when I deactivate Weaver Theme and switch to a default theme like Twenty-Twenty-One. See this screenshot of what it looks like when the text block does work.

    (I contacted WPBakery and they told me to contact you guys because they think it’s a theme compatibility issue.)

    I think the solution was to make sure the “Disable the visual editor” box was not selected:

    In WP Admin > All Users > Users

    Select user > Edit

    Personal Options > Visual Editor > □ Disable the visual editor when writing





    Thank you again for responding. I have tried that. Please see screenshot.

    I went to your demo page, and have concluded it is all due to WPBakery. It seems to interact badly with both  the other activated page builders, and the Classic Editor plugin.

    I found a WPBakery setting that had disabled the Gutenberg editor. After unchecking, the Visual tab will show up again, but does nothing. The Text view still works. This makes some sense to me as all the page builders and the Classic Editor need to intercept the “standard” WP editing path, and it would be easy to step on another plugin’s logic depending on the order these interceptions happen.

    So I think you will have to take this problem up with WPBakery as I don’t see anything that could be caused by the theme.


    Yeah…. now that I think about it, the issue did start when I added the SiteOrigin Widgets. (WPBakery doesn’t really offer much in terms of widgets.)
    Thanks anyway for your help.
