Uninstaller [IO: ▲0.00MB] [DB: ▲0.00MB] 75% from 4 tests

🔸 Tests weight: 35 | The uninstall procedure must remove all plugin files and extra database tables
You still need to fix the following
  • The uninstall procedure has failed, leaving 7 options in the database
    • ipBlockOptionName
    • db_upgraded
    • can_compress_scripts
    • theysaidso_admin_options
    • widget_recent-posts

Smoke tests 75% from 4 tests

Server-side errors Passed 1 test

🔹 Test weight: 20 | This is a short smoke test looking for server-side errors
Even though no errors were found, this is by no means an exhaustive test

SRP 50% from 2 tests

🔹 Tests weight: 20 | A shallow check of the single-responsibility principle; PHP files should perform no action - including output of placeholder text - and trigger no errors when accessed directly
Please take a closer look at the following
  • 1× GET requests to PHP files have triggered server-side errors or warnings:
    • > PHP Fatal error
      Uncaught Error: Call to undefined function plugin_dir_path() in wp-content/plugins/ais-ip-blocker/ip-blocker.php:11

User-side errors Passed 1 test

🔹 Test weight: 20 | A shallow check that no browser errors were triggered
Everything seems fine, but this is not an exhaustive test


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
Attributes that need to be fixed:
  • Donate link: Invalid URI ("")
You can look at the official readme.txt

ais-ip-blocker/ip-blocker.php 92% from 13 tests

The entry point to "AIS: IP Blocker" version 2.2.0 is a PHP file that has certain tags in its header comment area
Please make the necessary changes and fix the following:
  • Main file name: Please rename the main PHP file in this plugin to the plugin slug ("ais-ip-blocker.php" instead of "ip-blocker.php")
