Smoke tests 75% from 4 tests

Server-side errors Passed 1 test

🔹 Test weight: 20 | This is a short smoke test looking for server-side errors
Even though everything seems fine, this is not an exhaustive test

SRP 50% from 2 tests

🔹 Tests weight: 20 | The single-responsibility principle applies for WordPress plugins as well - please make sure your PHP files perform no actions when accessed directly
Please take a closer look at the following
  • 1× PHP files trigger server errors when accessed directly:
    • > PHP Fatal error
      Uncaught Error: Call to undefined function get_option() in wp-content/plugins/ads-after-first-paragraph/frontend-add.php:2

User-side errors Passed 1 test

🔹 Test weight: 20 | This is a smoke test targeting browser errors/issues
Everything seems fine, but this is not an exhaustive test


Plugin configuration 87% from 29 tests

readme.txt 88% from 16 tests

Often overlooked, readme.txt is one of the most important files in your plugin
These attributes need to be fixed:
  • Tags: Too many tags (29 tag instead of maximum 10); only the first 5 tags are used in your directory listing
  • Screenshots: Add an image for screenshot #1 (Post with advt. after first paragraph and sticky ads in sidebars)
The official readme.txt is a good inspiration

ads-after-first-paragraph/ads-first-paragraph.php 85% from 13 tests

The main PHP file in "Ads after first paragraph" ver. 1.1 adds more information about the plugin and also serves as the entry point for this plugin
Please take the time to fix the following:
  • Description: If Twitter did it, so should we! Keep the description under 140 characters (currently 165 characters long)
  • Main file name: It is recommended to name the main PHP file as the plugin slug ("ads-after-first-paragraph.php" instead of "ads-first-paragraph.php")
