Server-side errors Passed 1 test

Everything seems fine, however this is by no means an exhaustive test

    • > PHP Fatal error
      Uncaught Error: Call to undefined function add_action() in wp-content/plugins/add-user-role/ajax/ajax.php:8

User-side errors 0% from 1 test

🔹 Test weight: 20 | This is a shallow check for browser errors
Please fix the following browser errors
    • > GET request to /wp-admin/users.php?page=my-unique-identifier
    • > Network (severe)
