where are plugins stored?

    That really depends upon the plugin. Some store settings in the wp_options table but some plugins create their own tables to store more complex data.

    thank you very much.

    One more question. after installing the latest wp version without a glitch, my admin menu has completely disappeared. I only see the boxes with info but absolutely no menu?

    any suggestions?

    Thanks

    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 Twenty Eleven theme to rule out any theme-specific problems.

    resetting the plugins folder by FTP or PhpMyAdmin. Sometimes, an apparently inactive plugin can still cause problems.

    Hi;

    did that, in fact I have no plugins right now and yet I still have the same problem. I also used the 20-11 theme and still the same thing.
    This happened when I converted from the previous version of WP to the latest version.
    I also installed a brand wp-option table from a brand database I created, still the same thing, my menus in wp admin after logging in are not there.

    So..

    Any suggestions at all would be very welcome.

    Thank you so very much

    Oh – that was a very bad idea. You need to restore the previous version of that table.
