If you have ever had an issue where a plugin isn’t functioning correctly or the settings menu in the WordPress Dashboard are not formatted correctly this is most likely due to file permissions.


  1. Connect to the site via FTP
  2. Set all Plugin Folders to 755
  3. Set Plugin Files to 664
  4. Reload the page.

The most common cause of this is by uploading a zip of a plugin via the cPanel File manager and then Extracting the plugin rather than installing it through WordPress or uploading via FTP.  You can see what is happening by loading up the developer console in your browser. Often times the .js files will return 404 errors.
