URGENT HELP NEEDED! NO Plugins Workin was created by YasminD
Hi everyone,

I really need urgent help as every plugin I try to install DOES NOT work. Sometimes the components don't work either! All I get is: Error! Could not find a Joomla! XML setup file in the package.
..Over and over again, and the XML file IS there.

I've tried install Profile Book but that doesn't work. I've also tried downloading the Profile Gallery but that doesn't work either.
Other plugins/components that are not CB related work fine, so I doubt it's Joomla.
Please, please help - I don't know what to do.

Sounds to me like you are trying to install a J1.0.x version into J1.5.x or the reverse.

It is also possible that you aren't unzipping first, an archive which may contain separate archives for individual installs within.

You may also be trying to install CB plugs with the Joomla installer, rather than the CB Plugin installer. To install CB plugs you have to do that within the CB Plugin Managment in the admin back end.

CB/Joomla golf site: www.thegolfspace.com
Geek/joomla site: www.tkserver.com

Check out my Joomla/CB projects:

* LIKE thumbs up system for "liking" content items
* Karma - CB user rating system
* Golf Score Tracker
* Jitter - status update system. "What's on your mind?"
* CB Author Plug - Shows CB author link and avatar in content items. J1.5 compatible and very customizable!

Found on my web site or in the Joomlapolis Directory !

Please next time search before you post.

You are trying to install a CB Plugin using Joomla Extension installer (the message is clear - Joomla cannot find the Joomla XML file in the package).

YOU NEED TO USE CB PLUGIN MANAGEMENT TO INSTALL CB PLUGINS.
