"BuddyPress Favorite Notification" version 1.2.0's primary PHP file adds more information about the plugin and serves as the entry point for WordPress
Please make the necessary changes and fix the following:
  • Main file name: The principal plugin file should be the same as the plugin slug ("bp-favorite-notification.php" instead of "favorite-notification.php")
  • Text Domain: You no longer need to specify the text domain since WordPress 4.6; it must be the same as the plugin slug
