Server-side errors Passed 1 test

🔹 Test weight: 20 | This is a short smoke test looking for server-side errors
Everything seems fine, however this is by no means an exhaustive test

SRP 0% from 2 tests

🔹 Tests weight: 20 | The single-responsibility principle applies for WordPress plugins as well - please make sure your PHP files perform no actions when accessed directly
Please fix the following
  • 1× PHP files perform the action of outputting non-empty strings when accessed directly:
    • > /wp-content/plugins/wp-edit/plugins/advlink/advlink.php
  • 3× PHP files trigger errors when accessed directly with GET requests:
    • > PHP Fatal error
      Uncaught Error: Call to undefined function add_filter() in wp-content/plugins/wp-edit/includes/style_formats.php:4
    • > PHP Fatal error
      Uncaught Error: Call to undefined function plugins_url() in wp-content/plugins/wp-edit/main.php:19

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:
  • Tags: There are too many tags (50 tag instead of maximum 10)
The official readme.txt is a good inspiration

wp-edit/main.php 92% from 13 tests

"WP Edit" version 4.0.4's primary PHP file adds more information about the plugin and serves as the entry point for WordPress
You should first fix the following items:
  • Main file name: Name the main plugin file the same as the plugin slug ("wp-edit.php" instead of "main.php")
