🔹 Test weight: 20 | A shallow check that no server-side errors were triggered
Everything seems fine, however this is by no means an exhaustive test

SRP 0% from 2 tests

Please fix the following
  • 1× PHP files perform the task of outputting text when accessed with GET requests:
    • > /wp-content/plugins/formality/includes/tools/download.php
  • 2× PHP files trigger server-side errors or warnings when accessed directly:
    • > PHP Fatal error
      Uncaught Error: Call to undefined function language_attributes() in wp-content/plugins/formality/public/templates/formality-form.php:15
    • > PHP Fatal error
      Uncaught Error: Call to undefined function _e() in wp-content/plugins/formality/public/templates/formality-notification.php:30

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)
Everything seems fine, but this is not an exhaustive test
