Plugins dont install correctly

Plugin Installation and Use Instructions

To install:

Download the plugin file
Unzip the file into a folder on your hard drive
Upload the /ad-widget/ folder to /wp-content/plugins/ folder on your site
Visit Network Admin -> Plugins and Network Activate it there.

the plugin does not show up in my admin if I install this way.
And if I install directly through WP admin (like all other third party plugins) it doesnt show up in my wp-content/plugins folder

    Once it is uploaded, its installed like any other plugin:

    Admin --> Plugins

    And activate.

    I've just tested that on a single site to be sure and successfully activated it.

    the plugin does not show up in my admin if I install this way.
    And if I install directly through WP admin (like all other third party plugins) it doesnt show up in my wp-content/plugins folder

    Are you saying saying that after you upload it via FTP its not there?

    Take care.

    Yes , it I manually drop it into the plugins folder via FTP it doesnt appear on my WP admin (plugins page) but it does appear in the folder (obviously)

    But if I install via WP admin it DOES appear in the plugins page but NOT visible in mu FTP.

    I know this sounds like I have no idea what Im doing but I have used over 2 Wp themes and and tonnes of plugins not via WPU and never seen this issue.

    Im confused and have no idea where to start.

    Hi there!

    Popping in to see if I can help. :slight_smile:

    But if I install via WP admin it DOES appear in the plugins page but NOT visible in mu FTP.

    are you installing in mu-lugins folder? You don't need to do this anymore, it is supported under plugins now.

    the plugin does not show up in my admin if I install this way.
    And if I install directly through WP admin (like all other third party plugins) it doesnt show up in my wp-content/plugins folder

    I can def understand why this would be alarming but I want to clarify that you can actually get the plugin to work correct? have you tried to upload the zip file and let the ftp unzip it?

    Best,

    Kimberly
