SRP 50% from 2 tests

🔹 Tests weight: 20 | A shallow check of the single-responsibility principle; PHP files should perform no action - including output of placeholder text - and trigger no errors when accessed directly
Please take a closer look at the following
  • 1× PHP files trigger errors when accessed directly with GET requests:
    • > PHP Fatal error
      Uncaught Error: Call to undefined function add_filter() in wp-content/plugins/add-overcast-payments-to-seriously-simple-podcasting/overcast-payments-for-ssp.php:18

User-side errors Passed 1 test

🔹 Test weight: 20 | A shallow check that no browser errors were triggered

You can take inspiration from this readme.txt

add-overcast-payments-to-seriously-simple-podcasting/overcast-payments-for-ssp.php 85% from 13 tests

"Overcast & Seriously Simple Podcasting" version 0.5.0's main PHP file describes plugin functionality and also serves as the entry point to any WordPress functionality
Please take the time to fix the following:
  • Text Domain: You no longer need to specify the text domain since WordPress 4.6; it must be the same as the plugin slug
  • Main file name: The principal plugin file should be the same as the plugin slug ("add-overcast-payments-to-seriously-simple-podcasting.php" instead of "overcast-payments-for-ssp.php")
