# Addons Not showing up in Toolbar (Blender 2.8 Alpha)

After installing the addons in the user preferences, they don't show up anywhere in blender 2.8 except from workspace addons tab in the properties and clicking it doesnt do anything. In user preferences next to the addons list, it also says that "Upgrade to 2.8x required". Does that mean that we can't use any addons in 2.8 unless they are upgraded for 2.8 builds?

• Since the addon version check, need to update to "blender" : (2, 80, 0) in the bl_info dictionary to register an addon. Some basic changes like no more scene.objects.[link, active] break a lot of addons. If you really want to disable the check, find the file 2.80/modules/addon_utils.py and edit the line if mod.bl_info.get("blender", (0, 0, 0)) < (2, 80, 0):  to if True: (The addons may register, but be aware a lot of ops and panels will be broken) – batFINGER Jul 7 '18 at 10:35
• Thanks you :) I'm addicted to 2.8 and EEVEE and now i can't go back to 2.79. I guess i'll have to wait... – Zohaib Jul 8 '18 at 7:31
• whoops that should be if False: above, to remove the check. Liking 2.8 too, albeit a little frustrating. – batFINGER Jul 8 '18 at 7:48
• Oh i was struggling to get it work with If True.... Thank you :) – Zohaib Jul 8 '18 at 7:51
• I got it working by doing this: if mod.bl_info.get("blender", (0, 0, 0)) < (2, 80, 0): Change to if mod.bl_info.get("blender", (0, 0, 0)) < (2, 79, 0): – Zohaib Jul 8 '18 at 18:45
