#10000: unable to see (or activate) plugins copied manually into wp-
 Reporter:  helened       |       Owner:            
     Type:  defect (bug)  |      Status:  new       
 Priority:  normal        |   Milestone:  Unassigned
Component:  General       |     Version:  2.6       
 Severity:  normal        |    Keywords:  plugin    
 Unable to see (or activate) any plugin that is manually copied into "wp-
 content/plugins/" directory...unless another plugin is installed
 afterwards using the "Add New" selection or after 2 hours has passed (cron
 takes that long to reread "wp-content/plugins/ and update "wp_options"

 To reproduce bug: 1) download a new plugin that contains multiple files
 onto your PC, 2) unzip new plugin, 3) "FTP" new plugin folder to your web
 server and put it in "/www-root-folder/my-wordpress-path/wp-
 content/plugins/", 4) in browser, load www.my-site.com/my-wordpress-path
 /wp-admin/plugins.php, 5) new plugin is NOT listed.

 To fix (IMHO): 1) have "plugins.php" reread "wp-content/plugins/"
 directory every time it is loaded, or 2) add a button "[refresh/reread
 plugins list]" that rereads the contents of "wp-content/plugins" and
 updates "wp-options" whenever it is clicked.

 FYI. This might be the same bug reported in ticket#9649.
