Can’t install WordPress plugins? Is the ‘add new plugins menu’ missing inside your WordPress admin area?

This weekend, I received an email from a client who couldn’t install or delete plugins. Not because installing or deleting a plugin caused a WordPress error. But because the add new plugin menu was missing.

The add new plugins menu should be seen under the plugins tab, like this …

And on the plugins page towards the top of the screen, in the ‘bulk actions’ drop down menu, you should be able to delete installed plugins.
