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
Almost there! Just fix the following items
  • 2× PHP files output text when accessed directly:
    • > /wp-content/plugins/ads-txt-lab/adstxtlab.php
    • > /wp-content/plugins/ads-txt-lab/views/admin.php

User-side errors Passed 1 test

🔹 Test weight: 20 | Just a short smoke test targeting errors on the browser (console and network errors and warnings)

readme.txt Passed 16 tests

You should put a lot of thought into formatting readme.txt as it is used by WordPress.org to prepare the public listing of your plugin
4 plugin tags: iab, adstxt, banner, advertising

ads-txt-lab/adstxtlab.php 85% from 13 tests

The entry point to "ads.txt lab" version 1.5 is a PHP file that has certain tags in its header comment area
It is important to fix the following:
  • Description: If Twitter did it, so should we! Keep the description under 140 characters (currently 325 characters long)
  • Main file name: The principal plugin file should be the same as the plugin slug ("ads-txt-lab.php" instead of "adstxtlab.php")
