1.8.7 bug fix release

Updated on September 8, 2015

While we were working on then next major release (1.9) we realised that there were a few pesky issues bugging you. We didn’t want you to wait much longer so we decided to bring this fix out quickly.

See our documentation for details of how to update.

The issues that were fixed are outlined below in further detail:

  • Fixed: WP_Widget constructors updated as within WordPress Core – The way classes were constructed was changed in the later version of PHP. We no only use __construct and not the old method of using the class name as a function in the class.
  • Fixed: Course created email sent twice – We moved the function to a different hook to avoid duplication here.
  • Fixed: Menu items with blank URL disappeared when the private messages functionality were disabled in settings.
  • Fixed: Answers disappear after adding a question.
  • Fixed: Multiple Choice random order was applied by default even if the user didn’t select this.

  • Fixed: Question type contains author name
  • Fixed: “Other Lessons” title always shows, even with no lessons under it.
