Cannot see OpenLayers under Plugin in QGIS?


Although I have installed the OpenLayers plugin in QGIS 2.4, I cannot see it in the list when I click on Plugins.

Does anyone else have this issue?


Unlike previous versions, the OpenLayers plugin now resides in the web menu:


Since QGIS 2.4, it is in the "Web" submenu.

It was a kind of design decision to move the plugins from thepluginsubmenu toRaster/Vector/Websubmenus.

If you updated from QGIS 2.2 you have to update the Plugin too.

If you have another installation of QGIS 2.2 in a different folder, you have to reactivate the plugin in QGIS 2.4 after each running of QGIS 2.2, because the latest version is not compatible to QGIS 2.2 or older.


For my QGIS 2.4 this is located in:

Web > OpenLayers plugin


I faced the same issue on QGIS 2.14.3, but the issue was because I was connected to the enterprise VPN network which has a framework preventing the download to all of these so the plugin manager window was not showing any of the important plugin in the list. Once I disconnected from the Enterprise VPN, I started to see these important plugin in the manager menu.
