    • > PHP Fatal error
      Uncaught Error: Call to undefined function add_action() in wp-content/plugins/fetchurl/index.php:44

User-side errors Passed 1 test

🔹 Test weight: 20 | Just a short smoke test targeting errors on the browser (console and network errors and warnings)

The readme.txt file uses markdown syntax to describe your plugin to the world
10 plugin tags: shortcode, post, parse, plugin, html...

fetchurl/index.php 85% from 13 tests

The main file in "Fetch URL - Fetch and Parse External Content" v. 3.04.26 serves as a complement to information provided in readme.txt and as the entry point to the plugin
Please take the time to fix the following:
  • Description: If Twitter did it, so should we! Keep the description under 140 characters (currently 152 characters long)
  • Main file name: It is recommended to name the main PHP file as the plugin slug ("fetchurl.php" instead of "index.php")
