WordPress Development Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for WordPress developers and administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I have been trying to upload more plugins and even though the files are all located in content/plugins directory, nothing is showing up in the dashboard.

Even the default plugins are not showing. Does anyone know why this may be?

Have you enabled Plugins for network sites, via the Network Admin?

Also, MU (must-use) or network-activated Plugins won't show in the site dashboard, IIRC.

You have likely Network Activated all of your plugins. If there are options for the plugins, these will appear in the Child site admin sidebar navigation. Plugins that have not been Network Activated will appear in the Child site admin under Plugins, with the option to activate them on a site-by-site basis.
