Sensei LMS 3.0 & WooCommerce Paid Courses 2.0 Beta 3

Updated on April 17, 2020

Today we’re releasing Sensei LMS 3.0 Beta 3 and WooCommerce Paid Courses 2.0 Beta 3.

Sensei LMS 3.0

Here are the most notable changes since Beta 2:

  • Actions are now fired when the enrolment status is changed. (See the New Filters section below for more details.)
  • We added the sensei_enrolment_learner_calculation_job_batch_size filter for setting the batch size of the learner calculation job.
  • We introduced a provider journal store that is disabled by default, but can be enabled using the sensei_enable_enrolment_provider_journal filter.
  • We’ve significantly reduced the amount of data that was being stored in the database for course enrolments.

You can see what else changed in Beta 3 here or you can download Sensei LMS 3.0 Beta 3 here.

WooCommerce Paid Courses 2.0

The most notable change in WooCommerce Paid Courses 2.0 Beta 3 is that we added the sensei_wc_paid_courses_migration_inactive_memberships_provide_manual_enrolment filter to enable blocking users with inactive memberships from being manually enrolled when the migration runs.


As always, please test the beta release on a staging site and not your live site. If you don’t have a staging site, you can use the WP Staging plugin to create one.

If you’ve already tested either Beta 1 or Beta 2 on your staging site, you should take the following steps prior to testing Beta 3:

  • Deactivate and delete the Beta 1/Beta 2 version of Sensei LMS.
  • Restore the database backup for your staging site.
  • Download Beta 3 and unzip it to your wp-content/plugins folder. You can choose to either override your existing folder, or rename it to something else before unzipping, if applicable.
  • Activate Sensei LMS 3.0.0 Beta 3.

The above steps are necessary to ensure the course enrolment migration process executes again. If you haven’t tested any of the beta releases prior to this, there’s no need to restore a database backup.
