Smoke tests 50% from 4 tests

Server-side errors Passed 1 test

🔹 Test weight: 20 | This is a short smoke test looking for server-side errors
Everything seems fine, however this is by no means an exhaustive test

SRP 0% from 2 tests

🔹 Tests weight: 20 | The single-responsibility principle: PHP files have to remain inert when accessed directly, throwing no errors and performing no actions
Almost there! Just fix the following items
  • 2× PHP files output non-empty strings when accessed directly via GET requests:
    • > /wp-content/plugins/border-image/inc/install.php
    • > /wp-content/plugins/border-image/template/dashboard.php
  • 3× PHP files trigger server-side errors or warnings when accessed directly:
    • > PHP Fatal error
      Uncaught Error: Call to undefined function add_shortcode() in wp-content/plugins/border-image/inc/shortcode.php:2
    • > PHP Fatal error
      Uncaught Error: Call to undefined function plugins_url() in wp-content/plugins/border-image/border_image.php:13
    • > PHP Warning
      Use of undefined constant BRDIMG_URL - assumed 'BRDIMG_URL' (this will throw an Error in a future version of PHP) in wp-content/plugins/border-image/template/dashboard.php on line 270

User-side errors Passed 1 test

🔹 Test weight: 20 | A shallow check that no browser errors were triggered
No browser errors were detected


Plugin configuration 93% from 29 tests

readme.txt 94% 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:
  • Contributors: Plugin contributors not specified
The official readme.txt is a good inspiration

border-image/border_image.php 92% from 13 tests

The main file in "Border Image Plugin" v. 0.3 serves as a complement to information provided in readme.txt and as the entry point to the plugin
You should first fix the following items:
  • Main file name: Please rename the main PHP file in this plugin to the plugin slug ("border-image.php" instead of "border_image.php")
