How to download WordPress plugins and themes from your user dashboard

You are welcome to our blog, on this post we will be teaching you how to perfectly download wordPress plugin on your wordPress dashboard. A lot of newbie or new bloggers get terrifies on how to perfectly download a WordPress plugin without much stress. Without wasting much of your time let’s delve in.

Typically, if I need to download a plugin or theme that’s running on a remote server, I connect to that server via FTP or SSH and transfer the files to my local machine. However, sometimes I don’t have access to the server for one reason or another, but I DO have the username and password to the WordPress admin dashboard. Below, I’ll outline how I download a plugin or theme from the WordPress admin dashboard using the help of a free plugin.

The Advanced Code Editor plugin mentioned in the section below is no longer available on the wordpress.org Plugin Directory. I now recommend using this one instead: https://wordpress.org/plugins/download-plugins-dashboard/

Steps

Log in to the WordPress admin for the site where the plugin/theme you want is installed.

Go to Plugins > Add New. Search for and install the [Advanced Code Editor]https://wordpress.org/plugins/advanced-code-editor/) plugin.

Go to Plugins > Installed Plugins and activate it.

Go to Plugins > Editor if you want to download a plugin, or Appearance > Editor if you want to download a theme.
