The readme.txt file is undoubtedly the most important file in your plugin, preparing it for public listing on WordPress.org
These attributes need your attention:
  • Screenshots: These screenshots have no corresponding images in /assets: #1 (Go to Appearance -> Codeless Header/Footer/Blocks to create a new template.), #2 (Various options to easiest work with large websites.), #3 (Header Widgets included), #4 (HQ widgets included with the plugin), #5 (Showcase of included widget (slider)), #6 (Showcase of included widget (portfolio grid)), #7 (Showcase of included widget (portfolio carousel)), #8 (Showcase of included widget (testimonial carousel)), #9 (Showcase of included widget (posts))
You can take inspiration from this readme.txt
