Sensei 1.12.1 Release Notes

Sensei 1.12.1 is now available. This release patches some theme compatibility bugs introduced by Sensei 1.12.0, plus fixes a couple of other issues patched by some of our awesome third party developers.

Here’s what you’ll find in Sensei 1.12.1:

Special thanks to @MustafaEltayeb for letting us know and helping us investigate the comment issues.

Theme Compatibility and You

If you’ve made any modifications to your theme in the past to enable it to work with Sensei, but have not explicitly declared support for it, it’s possible that your theme may not look as it did prior to Sensei 1.12.

To fix this, please ensure that you add the following code snippet to your theme, which formally declares Sensei support:

add_action( 'after_setup_theme', 'declare_sensei_support' );

function declare_sensei_support() {
    add_theme_support( 'sensei' );
}

What’s New in Sensei Course Progress 1.0.8

We’ve just shipped a release of Sensei Course Progress that fixes an issue with the widget display, removes some PHP notices, and updates the Russian translations.

Widget Display Issue

Previously, the widget was not displaying lessons that were not a part of a module. If the course had no modules at all, the widget would only display the course title and nothing else.

This has been fixed in 1.0.8. The widget now displays all modules that are not in a module under the heading “Other Lessons”.

Please refer to the change log for the full list of changes in this release.

Sensei 1.12 Brings Theme Compatibility

Today we’re excited to release Sensei 1.12 into the wild! This release has been in development since July, and brings with it better theme compatibility.

Better Theme Support

We’ve greatly improved the way Sensei looks on themes that don’t declare support for it. You should now be able to use Sensei with almost any theme!

The best way to tell if your theme formally declares Sensei support is to review the theme’s documentation. It should explicitly state whether or not it was built to work with Sensei. If you’re already using a Sensei-supported theme (e.g. Storefront), then you shouldn’t notice any change.

Read more about theme compatibility (including how to disable it) here.

Improved Course Navigation

We heard from our users that their students are often confused after clicking the Complete Lesson button, thinking that the same lesson was being repeated. With Sensei 1.12, students will be automatically taken to the next lesson in the course after completing the previous one.

Comments for Preview Lessons

Preview lessons (i.e. lessons that don’t require a site visitor to purchase the course or login before viewing) would show the lesson content, but not the comments. Preview lessons will now also display comments associated with that lesson.

Read more about these changes here.

What Else Will You Find in Sensei 1.12?

Here’s everything else you can expect to find in this release:

Please note: While we have thoroughly tested this release on a number of different themes, it’s always possible that we’ve missed something. We strongly advise that you test the update on a staging site before updating your live site.

What do you think of our latest release? Please let us know in the comments.

And thank you to everyone who helped test 1.12!
