No plug-ins in my admin area

Hi. I noticed that there's no plug-in option in the left margin of my WordPress site. Does anyone know why that might be please? Thanks.

Hi Sean,

Where is your install hosted? Locally or through some other service?

Are you logged in as an administrator?

Best, Cena

Hi Cena. I'm not sure; this is my first ever WordPress site. By local, do you mean via WordPress alone? It's hosted online, not on my computer, and no other service is involved. I can access the plug-ins option via the Help page or the My Site options.

Thanks, Sean :)
