    The plugins I've installed do not appear on my dashboard to activate. Also, the Widgets tab is not appearing under Presentation after I've uploaded the Widgets plugin to wp-content/plugins using my FTP Client under godaddy.

    The only plugins that appear are the default hello dolly and askimet. they display, snap and social bookmark widget. Nothing else shows up and I've since tried to upload the following:

    google-sitemap-generator
    general stats
    adsense-manager
    widgets
    wp-polls
    pb-embedflash
    wordpress-navigation-list

    I NEED HELP!

    Not sure why this is urgent but...

    The Sidebar widgets subtab doesn't appear unless the theme that you're using supports widgets. Does it?

    Also please make sure that the plugins you're looking for are readable by the webserver.

    how do I know if it is readable by the webserver? Alsi I am using the Quadruple Blue theme by WP Designer. It was touted that it supports widgets.
    It's urgent because my blog is supposed to be widget heavy, I have a deadline to "launch" the site and I'm at a standstill.

    File Permissions: Changing_File_Permissions

    It was touted that it supports widgets

    So do quite a few others but some don't.

    Here's the walkthru on how to widgetize a theme:

    You may want to provide a link to the theme that you're using so that it can be checked.
