    Hello,

    I do not know when this problem started. But today when I am trying to see my installed plugins I cant.

    I do have the Plugin option in WordPress menu. I click it, I choose installed plugins. I get to the page where it says plugins, I can choose all, active ones, inactive ones and so on. I choose all. It says it finds 21 posts.

    I see the column headers saying plugin and description.

    But… no plugins appears in the list. I see only the grey background.

    No matter what I do I cant get any plugins to be shown in the list.
    Whats wrong??

    Thanks!

  • Hey,

    Try switching to the default theme for your version of WordPress to rule-out a theme-specific issue (theme functions can interfere like plugins).
    If that does not resolve the issue, access your server via SFTP or FTP, or a file manager in your hosting account’s control panel, navigate to /wp-content/themes/ and rename the directory of the plugin and then check.
    If that resolves the issue, reactivate each one individually until you find the cause.

    Hello there.
    Thanks for your answer.

    I am not sure exactly what solved it, but I did change theme folder name, did deactive theme. It didnt help.

    I then manually deactivated some plugins by renaming the folder. It didnt help.

    Then I deactivated all plugins by renaming all plugin folders. Now the plugins were visible again in the plugins list. I did delete som plugins I dont need and started to activate the plugins again one by one.

    Now all plugins I need is activated and It still works, I can see them in the list.

    So probably something went wrong with a/some plugin(s) that created this.

    I am now more careful doing backups before installing new plugins so I can more easily go back in case something similiar happens.

    Thanks a lot for great support!
