  • Resolved menusplus


    The link to my plugins got deleted when my Chinese mouse went crazy. All my plugins are there but when I click the link to go to the page with all the plugins I get a 404 error.

    I first uninstalled Bulletproof, then disabled and then deleted all according to directions. However it also deleted the plugin page. I realized not long after that my mouse was going hay wire which caused problems with other things/programs.

    I tried doing an update to WP but it did no good. How can I get the link back?

    – Flushing any caching plugins you might be running, as well as server and/or browser caches. Also, any op cache or content network cache, as well as Cloudflare, clear those caches.
    – try resetting the plugins folder by FTP. Sometimes, an apparently inactive plugin can still cause problems.
    – switching to the unedited default Twenty Fifteen theme for a moment using the WP dashboard to rule out any theme-specific issue (theme functions can interfere like plugins).

    Make sure there is an index.php file in wp-content/plugins/ folder. If for some reason it is not there, download the original from the WordPress website and add it to the folder.

    Cleared caches, several times.

    The index.php file is still there.

    I can access each individual plugin from the menu on the sidebar and work with them. I just can’t get to the page with ALL plugins where you would add new ones, inactivate current ones and so forth.

    When I click on the plugins link it returns a standard 404.

    When I went back into the WP admin panel I went to my cache plugin and enabled it. Next I tried the plugin link again and it worked! I have no idea why this worked or if I disable the cache plugin if it will disappear again, but all is good for now.
