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
The following issues need your attention
  • 3× PHP files output non-empty strings when accessed directly via GET requests:
    • > /wp-content/plugins/botsplash-chat/botsplash_wp.php
    • > /wp-content/plugins/botsplash-chat/includes/botsplash_wp_code_block.php
    • > /wp-content/plugins/botsplash-chat/includes/botsplash_wp_appid_section.php
  • 4× PHP files trigger server-side errors or warnings when accessed directly:
    • > PHP Notice
      Undefined variable: appId in wp-content/plugins/botsplash-chat/includes/botsplash_wp_code_block.php on line 11
    • > PHP Notice
      Undefined variable: appId in wp-content/plugins/botsplash-chat/includes/botsplash_wp_appid_field.php on line 10
    • > PHP Fatal error
      Uncaught Error: Call to undefined function plugins_url() in wp-content/plugins/botsplash-chat/includes/botsplash_wp_render_options_page.php:28
    • > PHP Fatal error

Plugin configuration 90% from 29 tests

readme.txt 88% from 16 tests

The readme.txt file is an important file in your plugin as it is parsed by WordPress.org to prepare the public listing of your plugin
These attributes need to be fixed:
  • Screenshots: Please add images for these screenshots: #1 (botsplash chat settings screen), #2 (create new botsplash.com account)
  • Plugin Name: Write the name of your plugin instead of "Plugin Name" on the first line ( === botsplash-chat === )
The official readme.txt might help

botsplash-chat/botsplash_wp.php 92% from 13 tests

The main PHP file in "Botsplash Chat" ver. 1.0.1 adds more information about the plugin and also serves as the entry point for this plugin
It is important to fix the following:
  • Main file name: The principal plugin file should be the same as the plugin slug ("botsplash-chat.php" instead of "botsplash_wp.php")
