Invisible plug-ins (13 posts)

    I recently did a one-click install of Word Press, then FTP uploaded several plug-ins and at that time, they showed up in the "plug-in" portion of the control panel. Shortly thereafter, they vanished from the control panel. The files are still there when I view my website through an FTP server, but for some reason the Control Panel is not showing them.
    Has anyone else had this issue? I don't know what to do!
    Thank you!

    ps. I also just installed a theme in the theme folder and that doesn't show up in the control panel either...ack!

    what is the path that you are uploading to?

    If it includes WWW you're in the wrong place.

    I believe those 5 plugins were there to start with...do you mean Akismet, Hello Dolly, etc?

    Weird! I went to that link and none of the plugins I show in my FTP program are there...the bermuda triangle???

    am I using the wrong permissions? I guess the things that's throwing me is that they were there one day and then gone the next without me doing anything in between.

    I figured it out. Duh! Thank you for trying to help. Seems that there are 2 directories - one was just very well hidden. :-)

    well, i had created a separate FTP account for a company that was installing a website for me and somehow, the blog with all it's files end up there, meantime, a copy still showed in the original location...that sounds really confusing, doesn't it? I don't really know what I'm talking about...can you tell? :-)Good thing you responded so quickly!
