Recently, I experience a problem on my this WordPress site because I want to add a new plugin to install on this site to add new feature on my site 😅 but suddenly when I login and click on Plugins menu the add new plugin is missing then what I did was search on google and type “add plugin is not active” .
After that I click the first result on google and read the comment and I try to solve it but honestly I can’t understand some of the terms and what I did is to search on youtube and until I found the best video tutorial on how to fix it!
How to Fix ‘Add New Plugin Menu Not Showing’ In WordPress
I solve my problem by applying the last option from this tutorial wherein you need to login at my cpanel of my hosting server and click the public html and open the folder of my wordpress site name iamherbertflores.com then I look at the wp-config.php right click it and click edit file and I’ve seen at the bottom this character below;
define(‘DISALLOW_FILE_MODS’,true); //updates it the true into false and click SAVE it!
I refresh my dashboard wordpress site and goto Plugins and yes the Add New plugin is now active… 😅
