In a new WordPress plugin I am developing, I need to read/write a file inside this plugin directory (so internally, no external urls or files).
I do not want to use the global $wp_filesystem ( the WP_Filesystem class) to read and write my file, because there is no need to ask for FTP credentials, or user id and password from the user.
I just need to read/write the file internally.
The plugin Plugin Check reports a warning for usage of file_get_contents…so my question is:
are file_get_contents and file_put_contents allowed by Envato reviewers in a WordPress plugin?
