Simply paste this code where you want to display the active plugin list. Once saved, active plugins will be displayed.

function wpr_active_site_plugins() {
    $the_plugs = get_option('active_plugins'); 
    foreach($the_plugs as $key => $value) {
        $string = explode('/',$value); // Folder name will be displayed
        echo $string[0] ."\n";
