Smoke tests 75% from 4 tests

Server-side errors Passed 1 test

🔹 Test weight: 20 | A shallow check that no server-side errors were triggered
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
Please take a closer look at the following
  • 1× PHP files trigger errors when accessed directly with GET requests:
    • > PHP Fatal error
      Uncaught Error: Call to undefined function add_action() in wp-content/plugins/auto-subpage-menu/auto-subpage-menu.php:16

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 86% from 29 tests

readme.txt 81% from 16 tests

The readme.txt file is undoubtedly the most important file in your plugin, preparing it for public listing on WordPress.org
Please fix the following attributes:
  • Donate link: Please fix this invalid url: ""
  • Screenshots: These screenshots require images: #1 (When publish subpage then add it into menus (screenshot-1.jpg)), #2 (When update subpage then update menus (screenshot-2.jpg)), #3 (When trash subpage then remove it from menus (screenshot-3.jpg)), #4 (When restore subpage then add it into menus (screenshot-4.jpg))
  • Tags: Too many tags (12 tag instead of maximum 10); only the first 5 tags are used in your directory listing
The official readme.txt might help

auto-subpage-menu/auto-subpage-menu.php 92% from 13 tests

This is the main PHP file of "Auto Subpage Menu" version 1.1.5, providing information about the plugin in the header fields and serving as the principal entry point to the plugin's functions
The following require your attention:
  • Text Domain: You no longer need to specify the text domain since WordPress 4.6; it must be the same as the plugin slug
