🔹 Test weight: 20 | This is a short smoke test looking for server-side errors
Even though no errors were found, this is by no means an exhaustive test

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
  • 1× PHP files perform the action of outputting non-empty strings when accessed directly:
    • > /wp-content/plugins/log-viewer/views/debug-bar-panel.php
  • 3× GET requests to PHP files have triggered server-side errors or warnings:
    • > PHP Notice
      Undefined variable: showEditSection in wp-content/plugins/log-viewer/views/debug-bar-panel.php on line 19
    • > PHP Fatal error
      Uncaught Error: Call to undefined function esc_html() in wp-content/plugins/log-viewer/admin/views/files-view.php:18
    • > PHP Fatal error
      Uncaught Error: Class 'Debug_Bar_Panel' not found in wp-content/plugins/log-viewer/includes/class-dbpanel.php:3
