Plugin configuration 90% from 29 tests

readme.txt 94% from 16 tests

The readme.txt file describes your plugin functionality and requirements and it is parsed to prepare the your plugin's listing
These attributes need to be fixed:
  • Tags: Too many tags (11 tag instead of maximum 10); only the first 5 tags are used in your directory listing
The official readme.txt is a good inspiration

matomo-analytics/ajdg-matomo-tracker.php 85% from 13 tests

The main file in "AJdG Matomo Tracker" v. 1.2.9 serves as a complement to information provided in readme.txt and as the entry point to the plugin
Please make the necessary changes and fix the following:
  • Main file name: Name the main plugin file the same as the plugin slug ("matomo-analytics.php" instead of "ajdg-matomo-tracker.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
