Almost there! Just fix the following items
  • 5× PHP files trigger server errors when accessed directly:
    • > PHP Fatal error
      Uncaught Error: Call to undefined function ActiveDemand\\get_option() in wp-content/plugins/activedemand/partials/tinymce-editor.php:23
    • > PHP Fatal error
      Uncaught Error: Call to undefined function ActiveDemand\\add_action() in wp-content/plugins/activedemand/linked-forms.php:664

Plugin configuration 87% from 29 tests

readme.txt 88% from 16 tests

The readme.txt file describes your plugin functionality and requirements and it is parsed to prepare the your plugin's listing
Attributes that require attention:
  • Screenshots: A description for screenshot #5 is missing in activedemand/assets to your readme.txt
  • Tags: Too many tags (16 tag instead of maximum 10); only the first 5 tags are used in your directory listing
The official readme.txt is a good inspiration

activedemand/ActiveDEMAND.php 85% from 13 tests

Analyzing the main PHP file in "ActiveDEMAND" version 0.2.40
Please make the necessary changes and fix the following:
  • Description: The description should be shorter than 140 characters (currently 187 characters long)
  • Main file name: Even though not officially enforced, the main plugin file should be the same as the plugin slug ("activedemand.php" instead of "ActiveDEMAND.php")
