Uninstaller [IO: ▲0.00MB] [DB: ▲0.00MB] 50% from 4 tests

🔸 Tests weight: 35 | It is important to correctly uninstall your plugin, without leaving any traces
You still need to fix the following
  • Uninstall procedure had uncaught errors
    • > User deprecated in wp-includes/functions.php+5495
    has_cap was called with an argument that is deprecated since version 2.0.0! Usage of user levels is deprecated. Use capabilities instead.
  • This plugin does not fully uninstall, leaving 1 option in the database
    • rss_settings

Smoke tests 50% from 4 tests

Server-side errors 0% from 1 test

🔹 Test weight: 20 | This is a short smoke test looking for server-side errors
These errors were triggered by the plugin
  • 2 occurences, only the last one shown
    • > GET request to /wp-admin/options-general.php?page=rssupplement/RSSupplement.php
    • > User deprecated in wp-includes/functions.php+5495
    has_cap was called with an argument that is deprecated since version 2.0.0! Usage of user levels is deprecated. Use capabilities instead.

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
Almost there! Just fix the following items
  • 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/rssupplement/RSSupplement.php:32

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)
No browser errors were detected


Plugin configuration 93% from 29 tests

readme.txt 94% from 16 tests

The readme.txt file is undoubtedly the most important file in your plugin, preparing it for public listing on WordPress.org
These attributes need to be fixed:
  • Tags: Please delete some tags, you are using 16 tag instead of maximum 10
The official readme.txt is a good inspiration

rssupplement/RSSupplement.php 92% from 13 tests

The main file in "RSSupplement" v. 16.07 serves as a complement to information provided in readme.txt and as the entry point to the plugin
Please take the time to fix the following:
  • Main file name: Name the main plugin file the same as the plugin slug ("rssupplement.php" instead of "RSSupplement.php")
