How To Fix WordPress Missing “Add New” Button in Plugins and Menu Choice “Dashboard > Updates”

Published Date Author: , Posted April 17th, 2017 at 5:03:47pm

If you are missing either your “Dashboard > Updates” menu choice, or the “Add New” button or menu choice in the Plugins section, do this to correct it:

Edit the wp-config.php file, and change two lines to be false instead of true:

For example, here are the two lines fixed:

1
2
define('DISALLOW_FILE_EDIT', false);
define('DISALLOW_FILE_MODS',false);
define('DISALLOW_FILE_EDIT', false);
define('DISALLOW_FILE_MODS',false);
