Troubleshooting “Download Plugins and Themes from Dashboard” Plugin

If you’re having trouble downloading plugins and themes using the “Download Plugins and Themes from Dashboard” plugin, here are some steps to diagnose and fix the issue.

Basic Checks

  • Plugin Activation: Verify that the plugin is activated on your WordPress dashboard. Go to Plugins > Installed Plugins and ensure “Download Plugins and Themes from Dashboard” (or a similar name) is checked and active.
  • User Permissions: Make sure your user account has the “manage_plugins” and “manage_themes” capabilities. These permissions are typically assigned to administrator accounts. Consult your website administrator if you’re unsure about your user permissions.
  • Clear Cache: Clear your website’s cache. Sometimes cached data can cause issues with the download link functionality. Most caching plugins have a clear cache option within their settings.
