ajaxcomments/index.php 69% from 13 tests

"wordpressAjaxComments" version 1.0.3's main PHP file describes plugin functionality and also serves as the entry point to any WordPress functionality
Please take the time to fix the following:
  • Text Domain: Since WordPress version 4.6 the text domain is optional; if specified, it must be the same as the plugin slug
  • Main file name: Even though not officially enforced, the main plugin file should be the same as the plugin slug ("ajaxcomments.php" instead of "index.php")
  • Domain Path: Prefix the domain path with a forward slash character ("/languages")
  • Domain Path: You should use only dashes and lowercase characters for the domain path ("languages")
