  • When I try to upload any wordpress plugin after downloading it and extracting it, I go to the Plugins menu and the plugins aren’t there! Also, when I try to load a plugin through the ‘Add New’ page, it won’t install the plugin.

    Have you tried:

    – deactivating all plugins to see if this resolves the problem? If this works, re-activate the plugins one by one until you find the problematic plugin(s).

    – switching to the default theme to rule out any theme-related problems?

    Nope, none of the plugins I had uploaded appeared and switching themes didn’t help either. I’m considering doing a WordPress re-install or just waiting the problem out until the 3.0 update in April. Any other ideas?

    You are uploading them to the correct folder, right? 🙂 What happens if you try and install them directly in WordPress (Plugins > Add New)?

    There aren’t any known plugin bugs in WP 2.9.2 so I don’t think WP 3.0 is going to be any better. The issue is something to do with your site and/or the way in which you’re uploading plugins.

    I use FireFTP to upload to a 1&1 server. And I am uploading it to the plugins folder. I’m wondering if its something to do with 1&1. I’ve tried FileZilla but, I says connection timed out. Also, when I go to get the same plugin off of Add New,it claims the plugin is installed and at the latest version.
