    • > PHP Fatal error
      Uncaught Error: Call to undefined function add_action() in wp-content/plugins/cc-lexicon-lite/index.php:13

User-side errors Passed 1 test

🔹 Test weight: 20 | A shallow check that no browser errors were triggered

The readme.txt file describes your plugin functionality and requirements and it is parsed to prepare the your plugin's listing
Attributes that need to be fixed:
  • Tags: You are using too many tags: 12 tag instead of maximum 10
The official readme.txt is a good inspiration

cc-lexicon-lite/index.php 92% from 13 tests

The main PHP file in "CC Lexicon Lite" ver. 1.0.1 adds more information about the plugin and also serves as the entry point for this plugin
You should first fix the following items:
  • Main file name: It is recommended to name the main PHP file as the plugin slug ("cc-lexicon-lite.php" instead of "index.php")
