Plugin configuration 87% from 29 tests

readme.txt 88% from 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
These attributes need to be fixed:
  • Screenshots: Please add images for these screenshots: #1 (Location field and its options), #2 (Location field on an edit-post page), #3 (Type in a partial address or some coordinates), #4 (Choose to get the complete address)
  • Tags: Too many tags (11 tag instead of maximum 10); only the first 5 tags are used in your directory listing
You can take inspiration from this readme.txt

The entry point to "Advanced Custom Fields - Location Field add-on" version 1.0 is a PHP file that has certain tags in its header comment area
The following require your attention:
  • Main file name: The principal plugin file should be the same as the plugin slug ("advanced-custom-fields-location-field-add-on.php" instead of "location-field.php")
  • Text Domain: If you choose to specify the text domain, it must be the same as the plugin slug; optional since WordPress version 4.6
