  • Plugin Name: "Plugin Name" should be replaced with the name of your plugin on the first line ( === advanced-floating-content-lite === )
  • Tags: Please delete some tags, you are using 15 tag instead of maximum 10
You can take inspiration from this readme.txt

advanced-floating-content-lite/advanced-floating-content.php 77% from 13 tests

"Advanced Floating Content" version 1.2.1's primary PHP file adds more information about the plugin and serves as the entry point for WordPress
You should first fix the following items:
  • Description: Please don't use more than 140 characters for the plugin description (currently 223 characters long)
  • Text Domain: The text domain is optional since WordPress version 4.6; if you do specify it, it must be the same as the plugin slug
  • Main file name: It is recommended to name the main PHP file as the plugin slug ("advanced-floating-content-lite.php" instead of "advanced-floating-content.php")
