SRP 50% 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
Please fix the following
  • 1× GET requests to PHP files have triggered server-side errors or warnings:
    • > PHP Fatal error
      Uncaught Error: Call to undefined function buddypress() in wp-content/plugins/bp-group-documents/templates/groups/single/documents.php:6

User-side errors Passed 1 test

🔹 Test weight: 20 | Just a short smoke test targeting errors on the browser (console and network errors and warnings)

Plugin configuration 90% from 29 tests

readme.txt 94% 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
Please fix the following attributes:
  • Screenshots: These screenshots require images: #1 (Admin settings page), #2 (Documents settings page on group creation), #3 (Upload document form), #4 (Document list tab), #5 (Ties into site activity stream (for public groups only)), #6 (Group admin document's settings tab, allow category's edit, addition), #7 (User options for email notifications), #8 (Widget Recent Documents from your groups and Widget Popular Group Documents), #9 (Message when non member of a private or hidden group tries to access a group document)
You can take inspiration from this readme.txt

bp-group-documents/loader.php 85% from 13 tests

This is the main PHP file of "BP Group Documents" version 1.24, providing information about the plugin in the header fields and serving as the principal entry point to the plugin's functions
The following require your attention:
  • Main file name: The principal plugin file should be the same as the plugin slug ("bp-group-documents.php" instead of "loader.php")
  • Requires at least: Periods and digits should be used for the required version number (ex. "7.0" instead of "WP 4.6, BuddyPress 1.7")
