Plugin configuration 83% from 29 tests

readme.txt 81% from 16 tests

Don't ignore readme.txt as it is the file that instructs WordPress.org on how to present your plugin to the world
Attributes that need to be fixed:
  • Screenshots: These screenshots lack descriptions #1, #2, #3, #4, #5, #6, #7 in best-wp-lightweight/assets to your readme.txt
  • Plugin Name: Write the name of your plugin instead of "Plugin Name" on the first line ( === best-wp-lightweight === )
  • Tags: You are using too many tags: 36 tag instead of maximum 10
The official readme.txt is a good inspiration

best-wp-lightweight/nguyen-app.php 85% from 13 tests

The entry point to "WOW Best WP Lightweight" version 2.1.0 is a PHP file that has certain tags in its header comment area
The following require your attention:
  • Description: Keep the plugin description shorter than 140 characters (currently 151 characters long)
  • Main file name: The principal plugin file should be the same as the plugin slug ("best-wp-lightweight.php" instead of "nguyen-app.php")
