    Function WP_Scripts::localize was called incorrectly. The $l10n parameter must be an array. To pass arbitrary data to scripts, use the wp_add_inline_script() function instead. Please see Debugging in WordPress for more information. (This message was added in version 5.7.0.)

    • > PHP Fatal error
      Uncaught Error: Call to undefined function add_action() in wp-content/plugins/apester-interactive-content/inc/qmerce-admin-box.class.php:20

Plugin configuration 83% from 29 tests

readme.txt 88% 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:
  • Screenshots: Add descriptions for screenshots #6, #7, #8, #9 in apester-interactive-content/assets to your readme.txt
  • Tags: You are using too many tags: 13 tag instead of maximum 10
The official readme.txt is a good inspiration

apester-interactive-content/qmerce.php 77% from 13 tests

The entry point to "Apester Interactive Content" version 2.1.4 is a PHP file that has certain tags in its header comment area
You should first fix the following items:
  • 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: The principal plugin file should be the same as the plugin slug ("apester-interactive-content.php" instead of "qmerce.php")
  • Description: Please don't use more than 140 characters for the plugin description (currently 215 characters long)
