Why isn't there a plugin tab on my Wordpress dashboard? In the screenshots of your plugin tutorial, there is a plugin tab under Appearances, but not on my dashboard.

Hello,

Thank you for your WordPress question today. If you have MU (Multi User) installed, the Plugins tab may not show. The Plugins tab is found under My Sites >> Network Admin menu. Newer versions (such as 3.8.2) have corrected this and still display the Plugins tab in the left hand menu as well.

If you are not currently up to date with WordPress you will want to make sure you do that as well. The current version is 3.8.3.

If you are not on the MU version and had the plugin tab before, you will want to remember what you did prior to it disappearing (added a plugin or theme, etc) and disable them via your cPanel File Manager.

If the tab returns you know it was one of the items in the plugins folder. Then you simply re-enable the folder, enter it and disable one plugin at a time using the rename method and test it after each one. This should help you locate the problematic item. Once located, disable it and then you can enter your Admin area to remove it permanently.

Kindest Regards,
Scott M
