Uninstaller [IO: ▲0.00MB] [DB: ▲0.00MB] 75% from 4 tests

🔸 Tests weight: 35 | All plugins must uninstall correctly, removing their source code and extra database tables they might have created
The following items require your attention
  • This plugin cannot be uninstalled
    • > User notice in wp-includes/functions.php+5663
    wp_enqueue_script was called incorrectly. Scripts and styles should not be registered or enqueued until the wp_enqueue_scripts, admin_enqueue_scripts, or login_enqueue_scripts hooks. This notice was triggered by the jquery handle. Please see Debugging in WordPress for more information. (This message was added in version 3.3.0.)

Smoke tests 75% from 4 tests

Server-side errors Passed 1 test

🔹 Test weight: 20 | A smoke test targeting server-side errors
Everything seems fine, however this is by no means an exhaustive test

SRP 50% from 2 tests

🔹 Tests weight: 20 | The single-responsibility principle applies for WordPress plugins as well - please make sure your PHP files perform no actions when accessed directly
Please fix the following items
  • 3× GET requests to PHP files have triggered server-side errors or warnings:
    • > PHP Fatal error
      Uncaught Error: Call to undefined function get_option() in wp-content/plugins/category-list-icon/category-list-icon-admin.php:18
    • > PHP Notice
      Undefined index: cli_hidden in wp-content/plugins/category-list-icon/category-list-icon-admin.php on line 2
    • > PHP Fatal error
      Uncaught Error: Call to undefined function wp_enqueue_script() in wp-content/plugins/category-list-icon/index.php:14

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)
There were no browser issues found


Plugin configuration 93% from 29 tests

readme.txt 94% from 16 tests

The readme.txt file is undoubtedly the most important file in your plugin, preparing it for public listing on WordPress.org
These attributes need to be fixed:
  • Screenshots: Add images for these screenshots: #1 (Categories list on sidebar.), #2 (Categories list Settings.)
The official readme.txt might help

category-list-icon/index.php 92% from 13 tests

The main file in "Category List Icon" v. 1.0 serves as a complement to information provided in readme.txt and as the entry point to the plugin
Please take the time to fix the following:
  • Main file name: Even though not officially enforced, the main plugin file should be the same as the plugin slug ("category-list-icon.php" instead of "index.php")
