Everything seems fine, however this is by no means an exhaustive test

    • > PHP Warning
      Use of undefined constant CTRB_VERSION - assumed 'CTRB_VERSION' (this will throw an Error in a future version of PHP) in wp-content/plugins/counters-block/dist/editor.asset.php on line 4
    • > PHP Fatal error
      Uncaught Error: Call to undefined function add_action() in wp-content/plugins/counters-block/inc/block.php:4
