WordPress Text Editor Broken White Text
May 19, 2017

Over the last few years we have had this issue popup on WordPress sites.  It does not happen very often, but on a few WordPress installations after doing a WordPress software update the text editor does not work anymore.  Very strange issue.  When you login to WordPress and go to open or edit a post or a page the CMS page loads but the text editor where you type your content is not working.  You can see the box where the text editor lives but when you type in the box nothing shows up.  You can click on the Visual tab or the Text tab but still cannot type any text into the text.

You may also notice the WYSIWYG editor does not load (normally this is TinyMCE plugin).  The visual editor is not loading or working properly.   You may also notice White text or invisible text inside the editor.  Click and drag and highlight the area inside the visual editor and you will see the text is there but it is white, so looks like it is gone.

There are a lot of posts out there if you Google this issue.  You see the standard "deactivate all of your plugins and re-test answers".  I hate it when people tell me to deactivate all of my WordPress plugins.  I know it is the correct thing to do but in this case of the visual editor not working and white text it is not going to solve the problem.
How to Solve the Problem
In all instances when this issue has occurred we have solved this issue by adding this one line of code to the wp-config.php file:

define('CONCATENATE_SCRIPTS', false);

If this does not solve the problem there are a lot of other things you can do.  WP Beginner has a good article on how to fix this issue.

There are a lot of posts about this issue if you want to wade thru them all.  If you are using Visual Studio it could be a totally separate issue.  Good luck!

Full Service WordPress Hosting in Kansas City
Guess what if you are an IDP web hosting customer you can ignore this article!  Because we already fixed it for you!

We offer full service WordPress hosting.  Full service WordPress hosting is for business owners who do not want to deal with WordPress hosting stuff and do not like to login to control panels.  For $300 per year we do all of the WordPress software updates, plugin updates, security setup, security hardening, backups, offsite backups, emergency support, disaster recovery, malware removal and support requests.  Of course if there are changes that require web development work we charge for edits to the website and web developer time.  But as far as web hosting and WordPress goes, outsource it to us and never login to a control panel again!

KC Magento Developer IDP Designs New Website for Heelusions
May 18, 2017

KC Magento Developer IDP has launched another new Magento website for Heelusions.  Magento is a popular open source E-Commerce software system in order to run your E-Commerce business website.  IDP has been Magento E-Commerce developers in the Kansas City area since 2006.  We do both Magento development and Magento web hosting.  Magento is really great software for businesses that want to sell products online.  The software is very robust.  It is designed to be a E-Commerce website solution from the ground up.  There is a lot of functionality built into the software to manage products, manage customers, sell products and run an E-Commerce website store.  Magento is a good solution for a larger store with 100 or more products, stores with configurable products, stores with advanced functionality requirements and for professional business class E-Commerce.  We also develop WordPress Woo Commerce websites but we normally recommend a WordPress solution for smaller businesses with fewer products.

The Heelusions Magento project included copying the existing Magento site and setting up a beta site.  KC Magento Developer IP developed the Magento skin for the site based on an approved graphic design that the client had done.  The main Magento templates were built out per the design specs for the home page, category view page, product page and checkout.  New images and content were loaded on the Magento site.  This was the second Magento build we have done for this client.  We used a copy of the original Magento database so that we would not lose any customer information or orders.  You can checkout the new site at
KC Magento Hosting
We also do Magento Web Hosting!  Magento is really complicated there are a lot of moving parts.  It is difficult to have one company doing your Magento site and a different company doing the hosting.  There is a lot of back and forth and the right hand needs to know what the left hand is doing.  Magento is best when it is setup on custom Magento web hosting servers.  We isolate our Magento website hosting separate from other hosting and customize Apache and NGinx settings for best speed and performance for Magento sites.  Our environment includes a separate database server so that the front end web server and database server are running on two separate servers.  A two server setup like this works really well for Magento hosting.  Over the last 5 years we have done a lot of work tweaking our environment in order to maximize Magento performance.  Our Magento hosting includes full service web hosting setup, backups, support and monitoring.
