  • Tags: Please delete some tags, you are using 15 tag instead of maximum 10
  • Screenshots: Screenshot #1 (IPLocationTools sidebar widget) image missing

Please make the necessary changes and fix the following:
  • Description: A good plugin description is longer than 10 characters (currently 0 characters long)
  • Main file name: Even though not officially enforced, the main plugin file should be the same as the plugin slug ("iplocationtools-real-time-visitor-widget.php" instead of "IPLocationTools.php")
