I've had a Wordpress blog for quite a while and all of a sudden the dashboard or "back end" edit view is a mess. It just looks like one big form instead of a nice WYSIWYG editor. Anyone know what could have happened or how to fix it?

I've never had this exact thing happen but when I'm stuck I call my blog host and have them move it back a couple hours. This past week I lost all my advertisers and didn't want to go back and code them all again. I called my host and they back it up to the day before. The only thing that sucks is you will loose comment and content from today :/ Sorry I couldn't be of more help but thought I would throw out that option :/
Hmm, interesting idea. Who is your host? I guess I can call GoDaddy and see if this is possible. I think they may need to go back a week or more though.
Try uninstalling your theme.

You may have to actually delete your theme folder using ftp and then manually load things back in.

Gosh, I really have no idea how to do this. I am so lost when it comes to WordPress. I just like it when everything works. I'm happy to pay you if you can help fix this.
Did you recently install a new plugin?

The other suggestion other than uninstalling your theme is to deactivate your theme AND your plugins and then re-activate one by one to see what is going on.

With at least the default WordPress (Kubrick) you can see if it is indeed the theme OR the plugins.

Are you on the most current version of WordPress (2.9.2?)
Gosh, I don't know. I switched to WordPress from Blogger, but maybe I shouldn't have. I really don't know how to fix technical problems when they go wrong. I've never had this happen before. I think my father may have installed or deleted a plugin without my knowledge because it's been a mess ever since his visit. Grrr!
