Server-side errors Passed 1 test

🔹 Test weight: 20 | A smoke test targeting server-side errors
Even though everything seems fine, this is not an exhaustive test

SRP 50% from 2 tests

🔹 Tests weight: 20 | The single-responsibility principle: PHP files have to remain inert when accessed directly, throwing no errors and performing no actions
Please fix the following items
  • 4× PHP files perform the action of outputting non-empty strings when accessed directly:
    • > /wp-content/plugins/game-catalog/games-catalog.php
    • > /wp-content/plugins/game-catalog/shorttag-game-of-page.php
    • > /wp-content/plugins/game-catalog/shorttag-list.php
    • > /wp-content/plugins/game-catalog/functions.php

User-side errors 0% from 1 test

🔹 Test weight: 20 | This is just a short smoke test looking for browser issues
Please fix the following browser errors
  • 2 occurences, only the last one shown
    • > GET request to /wp-admin/options-general.php?page=gc_games
    • > Network (severe)
    wp-content/plugins/games-catalog/admin-crud.js?ver=5.8.1 - Failed to load resource: the server responded with a status of 404 (Not Found)


Plugin configuration 87% from 29 tests

readme.txt 88% from 16 tests

The readme.txt file is undoubtedly the most important file in your plugin, preparing it for public listing on WordPress.org
Please fix the following attributes:
  • Donate link: Please fix this invalid URI: ""
  • Plugin Name: "Plugin Name" should be replaced with the name of your plugin on the first line ( === game-catalog === )
The official readme.txt might help

game-catalog/games-catalog.php 85% from 13 tests

The main PHP script in "Games Catalog" version 1.2.0 is automatically included on every request by WordPress
You should first fix the following items:
  • Main file name: It is recommended to name the main PHP file as the plugin slug ("game-catalog.php" instead of "games-catalog.php")
  • Text Domain: You no longer need to specify the text domain since WordPress 4.6; it must be the same as the plugin slug
