We’ve just shipped a release of Sensei Media Attachments. This is a maintenance release which updates the location of the media files, fixes some translation strings, fixes some coding standards errors, removes the use of a deprecated Sensei hook, and adds Russian translations.
Please refer to the change log for the full list of changes in this release.
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.
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:
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.
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.
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.
