Plugin configuration 90% from 29 tests

readme.txt 94% from 16 tests

It's important to format your readme.txt file correctly as it is parsed for the public listing of your plugin
These attributes need to be fixed:
  • Plugin Name: "Plugin Name" should be replaced with the name of your plugin on the first line ( === uber-nocaptcha-recaptcha === )
The official readme.txt is a good inspiration

uber-nocaptcha-recaptcha/recaptcha.php 85% from 13 tests

This is the main PHP file of "Uber reCaptcha" version 1.1.4, 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: Name the main plugin file the same as the plugin slug ("uber-nocaptcha-recaptcha.php" instead of "recaptcha.php")
  • Text Domain: The text domain should only use lowercase characters and dashes
