    • > PHP Fatal error
      Uncaught Error: Call to undefined function add_filter() in wp-content/plugins/beautify-excerpt/BeautifyExcerpt.php:17

Plugin configuration 83% from 29 tests

readme.txt 81% from 16 tests

Perhaps the most important file in your plugin readme.txt gets parsed in order to generate the public listing of your plugin
These attributes need to be fixed:
  • Screenshots: Add an image for screenshot #1 (Markup of the excerpts)
  • Screenshots: Please a description for screenshot #0 in beautify-excerpt/assets to your readme.txt
  • Plugin Name: Write the name of your plugin instead of "Plugin Name" on the first line ( === beautify-excerpt === )
You can look at the official readme.txt

beautify-excerpt/BeautifyExcerpt.php 85% from 13 tests

"Excerpt Beautifier" version 1.0.0's main PHP file describes plugin functionality and also serves as the entry point to any WordPress functionality
Please make the necessary changes and fix the following:
  • Main file name: Even though not officially enforced, the main plugin file should be the same as the plugin slug ("beautify-excerpt.php" instead of "BeautifyExcerpt.php")
  • Text Domain: The text domain is optional since WordPress version 4.6; if you do specify it, it must be the same as the plugin slug
