Emailed Author: There are issues with your plugin code. Please read this ENTIRE email, address all listed issues, and reply to this email with your corrected code attached. It is required for you to read and reply to these emails, and failure to do so will result in significant delays with your plugin being accepted.

## Generic function (and/or define) names

All plugins should have unique function names, defines, and classnames. This will prevent your plugin from conflicting with other plugins or themes.

For example, if your plugin is called “Easy Custom Post Types”, then you might prefix your functions with ecpt_{your function name here}. Similarly a define of LICENSE would be better done as ECPT_LICENSE. You can use namespaces instead, however make sure that those also are unique. A namespace or class of ‘MyPlugin’ is NOT actually all that unique, you see.

This extends to anything in a define. For example …

define( ‘PLUGIN_PATH’, plugins_url( __FILE__ ) );

That define is a global, so PLUGIN_PATH could conflict with a number of other things.

Don’t try to use two letter slugs anymore. As of 2016, all the good ones are taken. Instead consider easy_cpts_ (from the first example).

Similarly, don’t use __ to prefix, as the double underscore should be reserved for WordPress itself.

Please update your plugin to use more unique names.

Some Examples:

function show_admin_notices_div
function wp_and_seo_trainer_admin_scripts

While you DO use this:

if (!function_exists( ‘wp_and_seo_trainer_admin_scripts’ )) :

It’s a bad idea. What happens if those exist? Your plugin breaks.
