Hello, I tried downloading some mods but it did not work. I opened forge and it did not show up, it only showed the default 4 packs. Can anyone help me?
Can you show your Forge setup on your launcher as well as your mods folder, can't really tell without screenshots to know how you have it setup and why it isn't working.

I also have this problem. It won't show anything else in the mod options except for the default five.
Current mods: Minecraft, Minecraft Coder Pack, Forge Mod Loader, Minecraft Forge, mercurius_updater
Also left pictures of my mods folder. Everything is set up in the right way, but the mods don't appear anywhere.
You seem to be attempting to run 1.12.2 mods in a 1.12 environment. Try again with a 1.12.2 Forge and see if that works.
It actually worked! Thanks a lot. I've been dealing with this problem for over a month now because of that mistake.
