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:
  • Screenshots: Please add images for these screenshots: #1 (Admin Panel), #2 (Post Page)
  • Donate link: Please fix this invalid URI: ""
The official readme.txt might help

content-for-money/contentformoney.php 85% from 13 tests

"Content For Money" version 1.1.4's primary PHP file adds more information about the plugin and serves as the entry point for WordPress
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 ("content-for-money.php" instead of "contentformoney.php")
  • Description: If Twitter did it, so should we! Keep the description under 140 characters (currently 164 characters long)
