The main PHP file in "CPW Custom Post Widget" ver. 1.0 adds more information about the plugin and also serves as the entry point for this plugin
Please take the time to fix the following:
  • Main file name: It is recommended to name the main PHP file as the plugin slug ("cpw-custom-post-widget.php" instead of "CPW-Custom-Post-Widget.php")
  • Text Domain: Since WordPress version 4.6 the text domain is optional; if specified, it must be the same as the plugin slug
