Once you have installed the ChatGPT Plugin, you also have to make sure you are using the Plugin mode in ChatGPT if you want to use the ChatGPT Plugin

Currently, the browsing mode and the plugin mode can’t be used at the same time as you can see on this screenshot:

  1. Make sure you have enabled the ChatGPT Plugin

Once you have selected the plugin mode, also make sure you have enabled the ChatGPT plugin.

Keep in mind that only three ChatGPT plugins can be enabled at the same time.

  1. ChatGPT Plugin giving me a bad response or output.

If you can’t get the ChatGPT Plugin to give you the desired output, the easiest method is to ask ChatGPT directly using the GPT-4 model how to get better responses from the ChatGPT Plugin.

  1. Check other reasons why ChatGPT is not working

It is also possible that there aren’t any issues with the ChatGPT Plugin, but ChatGPT has some technical issues in general. So as a best practice test, if ChatGPT is working without the plugin mode enabled.

If ChatGPT without the plugin mode enabled is not giving you a response as well, then most likely the bug is not related to the ChatGPT Plugin.
