Is your WordPress visual editor not working?
Chances are that the visual editor for WordPress got disturbed with any of your editor related WordPress plugins.

The editor is one view and then we also have the HTML (Text) editing tab in which we can put in the code for ads, etc. People who know and understand HTML can also use the Text editing tab.’
