How do you know if Sponge has been installed?

I have installed Sponge for Minecraft 1.8. I also downloaded a few plugins. However, the plugins do not show up. Is it that I installed the plugins wrong (in the Mods folder), or is it that Sponge is wrongly installed?

How did you install it?

You will see forge, then sponge, and then mods load. If you dont see any of that in your console output or log files then something is wrong. Post a log file or pastebin of your console if you can

Sponge also registers the command /sponge.

You should be able to see what plugins have loaded using /sponge plugins.

Placing the plugins in the mods folder was the correct thing to do.

What plugins are you running?
