Sensei 1.9 Now Available

Updated on February 2, 2016

(Important: while we have thoroughly tested this release, it’s always possible that we missed something, so we strongly advise you to test the update yourself on a staging site before updating your live site.)

Sensei 1.9 is now available. See our documentation for details of how to update.

We have made a great effort to preserve backwards compatibility, however, there have been significant changes to templates, globals, and hooks, as well as the overall plugin structure, so it’s important to test thoroughly before updating. You can read more about the technical changes here.

Developers can also now refer to our Sensei Developer reference, which details all functionsand hooks in Sensei.

Other features in this release include language packs, new shortcodes, zero-grade questions, and improved lesson navigation.


If you use any of the following Sensei extensions, you should also update them to the latest version to ensure they work properly with Sensei 1.9:

  • Sensei Certificates (1.0.12)
  • Sensei Content Drip (1.0.4)
  • Sensei Course Participants (1.1.3)
  • Sensei Share Your Grade (1.0.3)

As always, if you experience any issues with this release, please submit a support ticket and our ninjas will be happy to assist.
