Failed to load community plugins

Steps to reproduce

click settings->third-party plugin->community plugins->browse

Expected result

I want to see plugins list and get the Public plugin.

Actual result

it didn't show me any plugin, and a info shows "failed to load community plugin".

I paid for it and can’t publish my notes.


  • Operating system: macOS Catalina 10.15.7
  • Obsidian version:0.9.10

Additional information

I am confused exactly what you are asking? Do you have problem with third-part plugins?

Did you purchase obsidian publish (which is not a third party plugin)?
If so, follow this guide:

I did see this guide and follow its instruction: From within Obsidian > Settings > Plugin, enable the Publish plugin.
My problem is: I cann’t enable it. Info shows “Failed to load community plugins”.

can you post a screen recording?

Third party plugins (settings->third-party plugin->community plugins->browse) should not be confused with publish
(Obsidian > Settings > Plugin, enable the Publish plugin)

were you able to make things work?

Let us know if you’re able to get it work. Sounds like you need help rather than filing a bug.

If you paid for Obsidian Publish and want to get started, don’t go to third-party plugins, go to “Core plugins” instead. It’s an official core plugin, not a third-party one.

I hope that helps!

I got the same error. I just intended to see the list of third-party plugins, but it doesn’t load it. I’ve tried several times and I keep getting the same error: failed to load community plugins.
