Support » Plugins » New plugins now showing in Plugin Dashboard

  • I’ve used WordPress for several years now and this is the first time I’m experiencing problems with the plugins.

    Last night I installed the “Google (XML) Sitemaps”-plugin and it worked great. Today I wanted to install Matt’s Random Page-pluing and it doesn’t show up in my plugin dashboard. I try to upload another plugin – same problem.

    Then I try to delete and old plugin – it disappears on the dashboard, as it should, I re-upload it, but it doesn’t reappear on my dashboard.

    I can active and deactivate plugins just fine.

    Thank you in advance for any help and answers.

  • make sure the plugin’s core .php file is only one directory deep. eg: wp-content/plugins/plugin.php or /wp-content/plugins/pluginname/plugin.php.

    I’ve tried with both solutions. Same result – nothing :-/

    I’ve used and upload several plugins in the past without any trouble. What concerns me most is when I delete and existing plugin and reupload it doesn’t appear on the list.

    Do you work with two blogs or a dev site? I know it sounds simple, but make sure you’re uploading to the correct domain or site folder.

    No I’m only working with one domain and no other sites.

    I have a bookmark in my ftp-program.

    Thank you for taking the time to help me so far 😀

    What happens when you type the following into your web browser:

    If the folder doesn’t exist, you’ll get a 404. If it’s there, you’ll probably get some type of access denied error. Try it for one that is working and for one that isn’t working. It really sounds like your files are there and this will determine that.

    I tried with
    and got right on my blog. No matter what folder I type.

    I’m 100% sure that the plugins are there. No doubt about that at all 😉

    What plugins are you trying to upload?

    I thought we had confirmed this already, and you probably have, but they’re unzipped prior to upload, correct.

    At the bottom of your plugins page in admin, does it say anything about broken plugins?

    They are already unzipped.

    As mentioned before as a test I removed an already working plugin. I deactivated it, downloaded it locally, deleted it on the server, reuploaded the plugin again and it didn’t appear on my list even though its in the same folder as it was before.

    I’ve uploaded several plugins about 30 altogether the last couple of years without any problems.

    I tried to use a plugin written by WordPress’ founder himself 😉

    So that should work. I’ve seen it on other sites where it works great.

    oh and I just noticed the link I gave you earlier is wrong.

    This is the right one. As you can see I get the access denied error, but the pluing isn’t showing.

    and the last thing…there is no message about broken plugins

    Blepoxp: I’ve got it!

    It turns out my ftp-program (flashfxp) didn’t transfer the files corretly. I’m still trying to find out what is wrong.

    The programs tells me that it trasferred a 7 Kb file but when I look at it its blank (0 bytes). I tried to use my hosts web based upload and the plugin shows.

    Its a stupid mistake and I really appreciate all the time and effort you put into this.

    Thank you very much! 🙂
