Support » Plugins and Hacks » Plugins not showing in Plugin Management

  • I recently tried to install 3 different plug-ins.
    I installed them all to the \wp-content\plugins folder but when I go to the activation screen they don’t show up in the list.

    Any ideas on why they don’t show up?

  • Figured out the problem.

    It’d be helpful if you posted what the problem was and how you solved it for future reference. 😉

    I had 2 copies of the blog. One was installed in the root web dir, the other in /root/blog.

    The options in WordPress were looking at the plugins in /root/blog/wp-content/plugins/ but the plugins were installed in /root/wp-content/plugins.

    Everything was working fine because of the two copies, I just installed the plugins to the wrong folder.

    Thanks for replying. 🙂

    Well, i have the same version (2.01) but i don’t have two blogs.
    It was a plain install using the install-wizard, i just blindly copied the php files from the extra plugins to the wp-content/plugins folder, nothing.
    I checked access, read / write rights, all okay.
    I created seperate subfolders inside the plugin folder and moved the php files to there, nothing.

    The wordpress configuration is installed in wwwroot/wordpress subfolder (http:://mysite.org/wordpress/) for testing purposes since i have other PHP software on the webroot.

    I read these links and aren’t applicable to my problem for as far as i should have followed the instructions (the initial install was done from within the wordpress folder and not moved later):

    try not putting the php files in their own subfolders. All mine are in thr same folder.

    I didn’t at first, but since i saw one of the default plugins having it’s own folder, it invited me to try this approach.

    I’ll think i just stick to B2 instead as i only need some frontpage news site and is also much easier to port an existing frontpage design and css into. (no “header”, “sidebar” and “footer” php shit)
