    what plugins do you think you you think you should be seeing, what are the names? And if we are talking about the blog in your profile, look in your plugins directory for me -- do you see a hello.php???

    I am also having a problem with this. I had the ald-transpose-email pluggin installed, however I was getting an error. Thinking that it might be an older version (I have this installed on several sites), I downloaded it anew. Then I deactivated it in WordPress, deleted the previous folder from my directory, and uploaded the new version. It's showing up sitting there with all my other plugins, but is not showing up in WordPress.

    Resolved? I have the same problem: Askismet and Hello Dolly are showing fine WP 2.3.3 - which install4free very kindly set up for me after I messed up upgrading from 2.3. (I think), the original installation: Tan Tan Noodles, Optimal Title, Simple Tags, Sociable - none show in Administration > Plugins > Activate (not there to acivate, though Askismet was and did, after entering the API (? the code along with my username). I'm new, just ten days into WorPress and haven't much of a clue about what's going on.

    I have the same problem as byknight and uptempoair. I uploaded Chicklet-Creator, Google Site Map Generator, Tan Tan Noodles, Optimal Title, Simple Tags, and Sociable to the wp-content/plugins directory on my host. None show in WordPress Administration > Plugins > Activate except Akismet and Hello Dolly. I activated Akismet. I changed permissions for each one I uploaded. A hello.php is there. No luck. I really need to get these going soon. I'm on a tight schedule. Does anyone have the answer? I'm new, just starting with WordPress, and appreciate your help.
    Thank you!

    Thats neat -- your time is no more valuable than anyone else's. If you want help than you need to provide more info, or you need to provide the url to you wordpress blog.

    tria, this error should not be here:

    http://www.weorganizeyourthoughts.com/blog/plugins/

    that tells me that you uploaded theme files to the root of you plugin directory. theme files dont go there. when you have removed those files, I will be able to tell more what the nature of your problem is.

    in the meantime, check that you have not nested the plugin directories and that there are no spaces in the directory names.

    whooami:
    My apologies. I was not trying to imply that my time is more important than anyone else's. I am an utter newbie at blogging, and unable to learn this stuff nearly as quickly as I need to, which frustrates me. No arrogance was intended.

    I uploaded the files with instructions from my host, so I will go there, see if I can find out from them what happened, and double-check names. Hopefully, this will be easily solved.

    Thank you very much for your help!

    I think what you need to do when you drop off the plugin file in your wpcontent/plugins folder make sure they ain't in a double folder.
    But if this is really resolved then ta heck I say

    you replied to a thread that shows [resolved] in its name and is four months old. OBVIOUSLY, that means its resolved.

    For those of you wondering what the resolution is... well I can't tell you what the resolution was for the person who originally posted, But I can tell you what the solution worked for me.

    I uploaded my plugin to the directory;
    /wp-content/plugins

    just like I was told right? but... another member here mentioned that there could be a duplicate folder called plugins

    I found the 3 folder with plugins, but here's the one that worked for me;
    /public_html/wp-content/plugins

    if you know at least a little about ftp
    /public_html is still like the root domain

    I messed up and uploaded my plugin into
    /wp-content/plugins

    instead of

    /public_html/wp-content/plugins

    That's where were wordpress was uploaded on my domain.

    Having the same problem and it's really frustrating not knowing what the problem is!

    The only plugins that work are Akismet and hello, dolly! i installed a bunch of plugins (got 2.6.3 wp and got the newest plugins)

    i installed the plugins in /public_html/newincinema/wp-content/plugins

    my site is http://www.newincinema.com (weee, another backlink)

    the other plugins don't show in dashboard of plugin page... nothing! i even installed a plugin that shows everyplugin setting button.. even that one doesn't work! any input for my problem? thanks in advance for taking the time and answering my lowbie question!

    whooami while I'm sure your expertise is appreciated by many a newbie on this board, I don't think that the sarcasm is. Support Forums are supposed to be that SUPPORT, not to CRITICIZE. I'm getting tired of reading through all of these posts and see more experienced members give others a hard time, either by posting on the wrong topic or posting too much, or not being thorough enough. It shows lack of class and a lack of NETIQUETTE.If you want to be truly helpful to people just post the information requested.
