SRP 50% from 2 tests

🔹 Tests weight: 20 | The single-responsibility principle applies for WordPress plugins as well - please make sure your PHP files perform no actions when accessed directly
Please fix the following items
  • 2× PHP files trigger server errors when accessed directly:
    • > PHP Fatal error
      Uncaught Error: Call to undefined function add_query_arg() in wp-content/plugins/advanced-post-manager/views/edit-filters.php:5
    • > PHP Fatal error
      Uncaught Error: Call to undefined function plugin_dir_path() in wp-content/plugins/advanced-post-manager/tribe-apm.php:11

User-side errors Passed 1 test

🔹 Test weight: 20 | This is a shallow check for browser errors

Plugin configuration 93% 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 your attention:
  • Tags: Too many tags (13 tag instead of maximum 10); only the first 5 tags are used in your directory listing
The official readme.txt is a good inspiration

advanced-post-manager/tribe-apm.php 92% from 13 tests

This is the main PHP file of "Advanced Post Manager" version 4.5.1, providing information about the plugin in the header fields and serving as the principal entry point to the plugin's functions
Please make the necessary changes and fix the following:
  • Main file name: Even though not officially enforced, the main plugin file should be the same as the plugin slug ("advanced-post-manager.php" instead of "tribe-apm.php")
