Where is the Plugins menu?

  • I’m trying to add a plugin here, basic vanilla use of
    wordpress and don’t know where to start. The docs
    talk about a plugins menu below the Appearance menu

    — See http://codex.wordpress.org/Plugins_Plugins_SubPanel
    for an example

    But on three different machines I don’t see a Plugins menu.

    Below “Appearance” I always see Users, then Tools.

    Any and all help appreciated.

  • A common reason for this problem is that wordpress.com blogs don’t have the plugins tab, just some pre-included plugins. Are you a .org or .com user? If .com, the only solution is to switch to a self-hosted blog.

    Thanks for the reply.

    It’s more .org than .com — it’s for the website at
    the church my wife works at, on a .ca domain.

    The wordpress.com-hosted blog makes sense because they
    have no IT expertise on their staff. Is there
    something cheap available for non-profits?
