Smoke tests 75% from 4 tests

Server-side errors Passed 1 test

🔹 Test weight: 20 | Just a short smoke test targeting errors on the server (in the Apache logs)
Even though no errors were found, this is by no means an exhaustive test

SRP 50% from 2 tests

🔹 Tests weight: 20 | A shallow check of the single-responsibility principle; PHP files should perform no action - including output of placeholder text - and trigger no errors when accessed directly
Please fix the following items
  • 1× 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/captisa-forms-shortcode/captisa.php:41

User-side errors Passed 1 test

🔹 Test weight: 20 | This is just a short smoke test looking for browser issues
Everything seems fine, but this is not an exhaustive test


Plugin configuration 90% from 29 tests

readme.txt 94% 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
These attributes need to be fixed:
  • Screenshots: Add images for these screenshots: #1 (Example of shortcode), #2 (Shortcode configuration), #3 (Where to get shortcode)
The official readme.txt might help

captisa-forms-shortcode/captisa.php 85% from 13 tests

This is the main PHP file of "Captisa Forms Shortcode Plugin" version 1.1, providing information about the plugin in the header fields and serving as the principal entry point to the plugin's functions
It is important to fix the following:
  • Main file name: Even though not officially enforced, the main plugin file should be the same as the plugin slug ("captisa-forms-shortcode.php" instead of "captisa.php")
  • Text Domain: The text domain must be the same as the plugin slug, although optional since WordPress version 4.6
