Can't Type In Main Body Of Event

In edit mode I am unable to type or see text in the main body of my event pages. I cannot type in Visual mode or Text mode. This is happening on new and old events and on multiple browsers. I have a message from Event Espresso recommending a newer php. I need to start advertising events, any help appreciated!

Hi there,

This is likely the result of a 3rd party plugin that needs fixing. Do you happen to have the Jetpack plugin installed and activated on your site? If so, the recent update to the Jetpack plugin has a bug that breaks the editor. The Jetpack developers are aware of the bug and are working on a fix. In the meantime you can deactivate the contact form module within JetPack’s Debug > “Access the full list of Jetpack modules available on your site” page. They show how to get that page here:

If you do not have the Jetpack plugin activated on your site, you can follow this troubleshooting guide:

Yes. I do have Jetpack installed. Great to hear Jetpack is aware and working on it. Thank you very much for the links and support.

If you can deactivate the Contact Form module from the Jetpack modules page on your site that should work as a temporary fix.
