Plugin configuration 93% from 29 tests

readme.txt 94% from 16 tests

The readme.txt file is important because it is parsed by WordPress.org for the public listing of your plugin
These attributes need to be fixed:
  • Screenshots: These screenshots have no corresponding images in /assets: #1 (This shows the rendering of the Widget in the sidebar of a WP blog.), #2 (This shows how to activate the widget in the Plugins menu in the WP Admin backend), #3 (Configuring the settings for the stackoverflow widget in the WP Admin backend.)
The official readme.txt might help

stackoverflow-profile-widget/soprofile.php 92% from 13 tests

This is the main PHP file of "StackOverflow Profile" version 2014.07.03, providing information about the plugin in the header fields and serving as the principal entry point to the plugin's functions
Please take the time to fix the following:
  • Main file name: Even though not officially enforced, the main plugin file should be the same as the plugin slug ("stackoverflow-profile-widget.php" instead of "soprofile.php")
