I didn't have no problem so far updating, doig FavIcon and doing great stuf through my blog but I just insteall TinyMCE Advanced Plugin and for some reason under my WP 4.0 / visual Editor - it's all white and grey content. It might be nice for some people but it's hard to find what is what. In addition that table doesn't work at all. Something is not working.

Hello Julie,

Sorry to hear that you're having problems with the TinyMCE plugin. I am unable to duplicate the problem with my own WordPress installation. The issue may be related to the theme you're using, or it may be a conflict with another plugin. There are also many version of TinyMCE out there, so you may want to make sure you the TinyMCE Advanced plugin installed (as per the article above). Try disabling your other plugins or changing the theme to see if it helps with the issue. Otherwise, contact the developer using the TinyMCE support forums. The developer of the plugin would be your best avenue of support for this issue.

Kindest regards,
Arnel C.
