Plugins are the important components of WordPress CMS. You would build your own plugin for your need to make your life easy. The best benefit of using content management system is molding your site into whatever you need, without wasting your time and energy on writing lines and lines of code.
Every utility has their Prons and Cons. To handle huge data, spam and unknown plugins installed in your CMS, WordPress may get affected with different changes. It can be data crush, plugins disable what ever.

After a long gap I have started my blogging and logged in with much enthusiasm to write few posts which I ‘ve scheduled. But unfortunately when I enter the text in content editor in the post, there is nothing shows and the text which I am entering is purely white font.
In order to change the font, I have no Tiny MCE options. That’s a chaos situation I had. The result of this is I delayed my blog topics to publish and got wasted my time. Every time I got this problem of any kind of plugins and themes, just as the other software developer I search Google. I got many search results stating that

and replace the folder tinymce. This works maximum for sure. Otherwise goto the next step.
3. Add script to your wp-config file
The Wp-config file is used to configure the site setting manually whenever needed. All the thing we do is, should add a small script of code in starting of the wp-config file.
Open your file manager, go to wp-config.php file and paste the below code in the starting header.

Additionally, the bonus tip is if you are running multiple sites with the same hosting plan, then your work is very simple. Just goto the folder tinymce of the other site which the plugin works fine.
- Zip all the files with a name and download the file.
