Smoke tests 50% from 4 tests

Server-side errors Passed 1 test

🔹 Test weight: 20 | This is a short smoke test looking for server-side errors
Everything seems fine, however this is by no means an exhaustive test

SRP 0% from 2 tests

🔹 Tests weight: 20 | The single-responsibility principle: PHP files have to remain inert when accessed directly, throwing no errors and performing no actions
Please fix the following items
  • 15× PHP files perform the action of outputting non-empty strings when accessed directly (only 10 are shown):
    • > /wp-content/plugins/advanced-plugin-search/includes/class-klick-aps-options.php
    • > /wp-content/plugins/advanced-plugin-search/includes/class-klick-aps-logger.php
    • > /wp-content/plugins/advanced-plugin-search/includes/class-klick-aps-abstract-logger.php
    • > /wp-content/plugins/advanced-plugin-search/templates/notices-templates/main-dashboard-notices.php
    • > /wp-content/plugins/advanced-plugin-search/includes/class-klick-aps-abstract-notice.php
    • > /wp-content/plugins/advanced-plugin-search/templates/klick-aps-tabs-header.php
    • > /wp-content/plugins/advanced-plugin-search/includes/class-klick-aps-email-logger.php

    • > /wp-content/plugins/advanced-plugin-search/includes/class-klick-aps-db-operations.php
  • 3× PHP files trigger errors when accessed directly with GET requests:
    • > PHP Fatal error
      Uncaught Error: Call to undefined function _e() in wp-content/plugins/advanced-plugin-search/templates/klick-aps-tab-our-other-plugins.php:3
    • > PHP Warning
      Use of undefined constant KLICK_APS_PLUGIN_URL - assumed 'KLICK_APS_PLUGIN_URL' (this will throw an Error in a future version of PHP) in wp-content/plugins/advanced-plugin-search/templates/klick-aps-tab-our-other-plugins.php on line 3
    • > PHP Fatal error
      Uncaught Error: Call to undefined function _e() in wp-content/plugins/advanced-plugin-search/templates/klick-aps-tab-aps-manage.php:13

User-side errors Passed 1 test

🔹 Test weight: 20 | This is a shallow check for browser errors
No browser errors were detected


Plugin configuration 90% from 29 tests

readme.txt 94% 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: These screenshots have no corresponding images in /assets: #1 (Advanced Plugin Search enable/disable Tab), #2 (Download plugin data to local DB), #3 (Do Advance search by selecting various parameters)
You can look at the official readme.txt

advanced-plugin-search/advanced-plugin-search.php 85% from 13 tests

"Advanced Plugin Search" version 0.0.2's primary PHP file adds more information about the plugin and serves as the entry point for WordPress
Please take the time to fix the following:
  • Description: If Twitter did it, so should we! Keep the description under 140 characters (currently 185 characters long)
  • Text Domain: Since WordPress version 4.6 the text domain is optional; if specified, it must be the same as the plugin slug
