1.9 Developers take note

Most of the items in this post have been mentioned in the beta release post, but I would like to go into further detail. Version 1.0 comes with a lot of under the hood improvements which paves the way for an even stabler learning platform.

These changes may likely affect extensions or themes that you have written although we have tried our utmost to ensure backwards compatibility in all instances.

This post touches on the following issues:

Template Files

For 1.9 we have revamped all template files except for the email system templates. Every single file has been completely changed. With this complete change it is even easier to modify the templates or to add more functionality into them. The files themselves are more readable and include more context.

Removed

  • content-no-permissions.php – Moved into no-permissions.php with new hooks
  • content-single-course.php –  Moved into single-course.php
  • content-single-lesson.php – Moved into single-lesson.php
  • content-single-quiz.php – Moved into into single-quiz.php
  • content-single-message.php – Moved into single-message.php
  • course-results/ course-info.php – Move to function and added via a hook
  • single-course / course-meta.php – Move into a function that is now added via a hook
  • woocommerce / add-to-cart.php – Move into a function that is now added via a hook
  • single-quiz/  quiz-questions.php – Moved into single-quiz.php
  • learner-profile /  learner-info.php – Move into a function that is now added via a hook
  • single-lesson/  lesson-meta.php – Move into a function that is now added via a hook
  • taxonomy-course-category.php – Removed, the taxonomy archive now uses archive-course.php
  • taxonomy-lesson-tag.php – Removed, the taxonomy archive now uses archive-lesson.php

Moved

  • wrappers/*  – moved to  globals/* 
  • single-course/course-lessons.php – moved to single-course/lessons.php
  • single-course/course-modules.php – moved to single-modules.php/modules.php

New

  • content-course.php – used with the loop-course.php ( not used in single course )
  • content-lesson.php – used with the loop-lesson.php ( not used in single lesson )
  • content-message.php – used with the loop-message.php ( not used in single message )
  • teacher-archive.php – used as a base for the teacher archive with all their courses. Similar to the `author.php` template in WordPress core, but for teachers specifically.

Plugins structure

If you’ve been around the Sensei internals you will have noticed that classes were always `class-woothemes-sensei-name.php`. This has now been renamed  with class-sensei-name.php. The same has been applied within the class name for consistency sake.

All classes have been moved from the /classes/ directory to the /includes/ directory which is now the place where all php functionality will reside.

We also had an `inc` directory in the root folder which held external libraries and company wide scripts. This is now moved into includes/lib/.

Global Sensei Object

Going forward the recommended way to access Sensei from a plugin or theme will be to use Sensei(). Most of the functionality will also be using a static function approach. Deprecated in 2.1 $woothemes_sensei, It will still work but using it will throw errors.

Deprecated Hooks

Hooks have been removed and newer more generic hooks put in their place.
