  • Screenshots: Add an image for screenshot #1 (screenshot-1)
You can look at the official readme.txt

activity-link-preview-for-buddypress/bp-activity-link-preview.php 77% from 13 tests

The main file in "Activity Link Preview For BuddyPress" v. 1.2.0 serves as a complement to information provided in readme.txt and as the entry point to the plugin
You should first fix the following items:
  • Domain Path: The domain path is invalid: folder "/languages" does not exist
  • Text Domain: The text domain is optional since WordPress version 4.6; if you do specify it, it must be the same as the plugin slug
  • Main file name: It is recommended to name the main PHP file as the plugin slug ("activity-link-preview-for-buddypress.php" instead of "bp-activity-link-preview.php")
