Smoke tests 75% from 4 tests

Server-side errors Passed 1 test

🔹 Test weight: 20 | This is a shallow check 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 | SRP (Single-Responsibility Principle) - PHP files must act as libraries and never output text or perform any action when accessed directly in a browser
The following issues need your attention
  • 2× PHP files trigger server-side errors or warnings when accessed directly:
    • > PHP Fatal error
      Uncaught Error: Call to undefined function plugin_dir_url() in wp-content/plugins/animated-buttons/Animated_Buttons.php:20
    • > PHP Fatal error
      Uncaught Error: Call to undefined function plugin_dir_url() in wp-content/plugins/animated-buttons/inc/settings.php:4

User-side errors Passed 1 test

🔹 Test weight: 20 | Just a short smoke test targeting errors on the browser (console and network errors and warnings)
Everything seems fine, but this is not an exhaustive test


Plugin configuration 90% from 29 tests

readme.txt 94% from 16 tests

The readme.txt file uses markdown syntax to describe your plugin to the world
Attributes that require attention:
  • Tags: Too many tags (11 tag instead of maximum 10); only the first 5 tags are used in your directory listing
Please take inspiration from this readme.txt

animated-buttons/Animated_Buttons.php 85% from 13 tests

The main PHP file in "Animated Buttons" ver. 1.0.0 adds more information about the plugin and also serves as the entry point for this plugin
It is important to fix the following:
  • Description: If Twitter did it, so should we! Keep the description under 140 characters (currently 198 characters long)
  • Main file name: It is recommended to name the main PHP file as the plugin slug ("animated-buttons.php" instead of "Animated_Buttons.php")
