Plugin configuration 93% from 29 tests

readme.txt 94% from 16 tests

You should put a lot of thought into formatting readme.txt as it is used by WordPress.org to prepare the public listing of your plugin
These attributes need your attention:
  • Tags: Too many tags (12 tag instead of maximum 10); only the first 5 tags are used in your directory listing
The official readme.txt might help

term-management-tools/term-management-tools.php 92% from 13 tests

The main file in "Term Management Tools" v. 2.0.1 serves as a complement to information provided in readme.txt and as the entry point to the plugin
You should first fix the following items:
  • Description: The description should be shorter than 140 characters (currently 165 characters long)
