Can no longer see plugins after activating this plugin
As soon as I activate this plugin, I don’t see ANY of my plugins listed anymore. It’s as if I don’t have permission to view them. The plugin used to work, but stopped working a short while back after an update.

When you say that you can’t see any plugins, do you mean that the “Plugins” menu is missing, or is it that you can still access the “Plugins” page but the plugin list is empty, or something else?
If it’s the second one (empty list), it could be an issue with the plugin visibility configuration. Please try this: go to the “Settings” tab in AME settings, find the “Modules” section, uncheck the “Plugins” module, and save changes. Does that have any effect?Thread Starter songsta
Thanks for the quick response. Yes, it is the second one. I tried your suggestion and I can now see the plugins again. Thanks for that!
What exactly does the plugins module do?Plugin Author Janis Elsts
It’s a feature that makes it possible to hide plugin entries on the “Plugins -> Installed Plugins” page. Of course, it’s not supposed to hide anything by default. It should only hide a plugin if you go to the “Plugins” tab in AME and uncheck that plugin, and it should leave the plugin visible for your own account (that is, it should be hidden from other users).
It sounds like, in this case, that feature was either misconfigured or conflicting with another plugin. If you don’t need to hide plugins from other users, you can just leave it disabled.
I have this same problem after update to PHP 8.1 but unchecked the “Plugins” module don´t fix. Only fix if I deactivate AME plugin. If I back to PHP 7.4 it will work, if I disable AME it will work again.
To be clear, are you also saying that the “Plugins” table is empty but that page is otherwise normal? If the whole page is blank or if the page footer is missing, that could mean there’s a different kind of a problem, like a PHP error.
Thank you for your fast reply in attempt to help me.
Let me upload 2 screenshots.
In wordpress plugin page it says “There has been a critical error on this website. Please check your site admin email inbox for instructions.”
But if I change to PHP 7.4 there is no problem anymore. This problem is related with PHP 8 upgrade. I am running the last version of AME.
So it is a fatal PHP error. It’s probably not related to the issue reported earlier in this thread.
Please check the server’s error log for recent fatal errors. The error (if there is one) might not mention this plugin directly, so look for any errors that happened around the same time when you tried to open the page.
Also, I noticed that the screenshot shows the Pro version of Admin Menu Editor. If the problem affects only the Pro version, please use the contact form instead of this forum.
Thank you, I did not know the autor is different from Pro to Free version. I found this forum from a google search on this error.
My apologies to the autor of this post @songsta but to me at first view looks the same problem. I do have an old Pro subscription, 1 year support already ended.
Thank you for your time.
To clarify, the author is the same (me), but WordPress.org forum rules do not allow using these forums to provide support for paid plugins. That’s why I recommended the contact form.
