SRP 0% from 2 tests

🔹 Tests weight: 20 | A shallow check of the single-responsibility principle; PHP files should perform no action - including output of placeholder text - and trigger no errors when accessed directly
Please take a closer look at the following
  • 2× PHP files output text when accessed directly:
    • > /wp-content/plugins/job-application-form/public/partials/sg-job-application-form-public-display.php
    • > /wp-content/plugins/job-application-form/admin/partials/sg-job-application-form-admin-display.php
  • 1× PHP files trigger errors when accessed directly with GET requests:
    • > PHP Fatal error
      Uncaught Error: Call to undefined function add_action() in wp-content/plugins/job-application-form/includes/class-sg-job-application-form-functions.php:17

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)
