After having installed QGIS 1.8 I am not able to find the OpenLayers Plugin. In "the old days" I know I was supposed to check "add 3rd party repositories", but that button has disappeared. I tried adding the following repositories without luck:
http://pyqgis.org/repo/contributed ..openlayers.org/api/2.12 ..github.com/sourcepole/qgis-openlayers-plugin.git ..github.com/nvkelso/qgis-openlayers-plugin.git ..plugins.qgis.org/plugins/plugins.xml ..plugins.QGIS.org/plugins/plugins.xml ..github.com/openlayers/openlayers
I hope someone can help me locate the OpenLayers plugin as I desperately need it.
