Sensei LMS 2.2 Beta

Sensei LMS 2.2 is now available for beta testing!

What’s Included in this Release?

Here are the highlights of the Sensei LMS 2.2 release:

  • We cleaned up unused, abandoned modules when the teacher is changed for a course that contains modules.
  • The course author name on the course archive page now appears beside the title. We’ve also cleaned up the styling for other course meta such as the number of lessons in the course and the course categories.
  • The Order Lessons page now displays lessons that are published, draft, private, or that are scheduled to be published at a future date.
  • We fixed an alignment issue on the single course page when a lesson has a featured image.
  • We removed the ability to add a course from the lesson page due to low usage.
  • We fixed an issue with WooCommerce notices not being displayed on some themes (like Divi).

  1. Do you plan to continue developing Buddypress for Sensei plugin. I know that buddyboss is no longer supporting this plugin and I think that is really crucial for the Sensei users. Even simple messaging system is not handled well in the Sensei, and it also covers really useful other features like course group and forum.

    1. As BuddyPress for Sensei is not our product and we have no access to its source code, it’s not something we will take responsibility for maintaining.

      Have you already contacted them and asked them if they planned to release any new updates?

  2. Yes I contacted them. They said they will no longer continue developing this plugin. But it was for free so you should have acces to the plugin code… 🙁

    1. What I meant was that they own the listing on WordPress.org, so we couldn’t just start making updates to the codebase there. Regardless of that, we currently don’t have the capacity to take over and maintain BuddyPress for Sensei. That could change in the future, but for right now we’re just not able to take on an additional product.
