Plugin configuration 87% from 29 tests

readme.txt 88% from 16 tests

It's important to format your readme.txt file correctly as it is parsed for the public listing of your plugin
Attributes that need to be fixed:
  • Tags: Please delete some tags, you are using 15 tag instead of maximum 10
  • Screenshots: Please add images for these screenshots: #1 (** Your Widget ** - When a visitor wants to access your selected content, a prompt such as this will appear. You can customize the appearance and text, and the sponsored offers shown.), #2 (** Integrates into Dashboard ** - Seen in this screenshot, AdLock integrates right into the Wordpress Dashboard.), #3 (** Easy to Use ** - After getting your code from the Adscend Media Publisher portal, getting it on your site is as easy as pasting in the code and selecting the pages in which it will be shown.)
The official readme.txt might help
