I am using QGIS 1.8.0 on Windows 7 (32-bit) but am unable to install the OpenLayers plugin. The Python plugins menu does not include OpenLayers on the plugin list. Can it be somehow added manually?

Post is related to a rapidly changing event.

Openlayers plugin is now part of the official Qgis plugin repository with version 1.0.0. – AndreJ Nov 27 '12 at 12:16

Until Openlayers plugin is incorporated in the official rep, you have to add the sourcepole repo manually by adding in the second tab. And make sure it is enabled.

Select fetch python plugins/repositories/add/enter name "sourcepole", url ""/select enabled/ok
