    • > PHP Fatal error
      Uncaught Error: Call to undefined function plugin_dir_url() in wp-content/plugins/contact-blaster/contact-blaster.php:37

Everything seems fine, but this is not an exhaustive test


Plugin configuration 87% from 29 tests

readme.txt 88% from 16 tests

You should put a lot of thought into formatting readme.txt as it is used by WordPress.org to prepare the public listing of your plugin
Attributes that need to be fixed:
  • Plugin Name: Please specify the plugin name on the first line ( === contact-blaster === )
  • Tags: Please reduce the number of tags, currently 12 tag instead of maximum 10
Please take inspiration from this readme.txt

contact-blaster/contact-blaster.php 85% from 13 tests

The principal PHP file in "Contact Blaster" v. 2.0.1 is loaded by WordPress automatically on each request
Please make the necessary changes and fix the following:
  • Description: If Twitter did it, so should we! Keep the description under 140 characters (currently 206 characters long)
  • Text Domain: The text domain is optional since WordPress version 4.6; if you do specify it, it must be the same as the plugin slug
