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
Everything seems fine, however 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
The following issues need your attention
  • 1× GET requests to PHP files have triggered server-side errors or warnings:
    • > PHP Fatal error
      Uncaught Error: Call to undefined function plugin_dir_url() in wp-content/plugins/alex-player/alex-player.php:26

User-side errors Passed 1 test

🔹 Test weight: 20 | A shallow check that no browser errors were triggered
No browser issues were found


Plugin configuration 97% 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 lack descriptions #2, #3, #4 in alex-player/assets to your readme.txt
The official readme.txt is a good inspiration
