Updated on February 18, 2022

Sensei LMS 3.8

Sensei LMS 3.8 is ready for testing, and contains two brand new blocks!

Conditional Content Block

The Conditional Content block can be used to conditionally display content on the course page depending on whether the visitor is enrolled or not enrolled in the course, or has already completed it:

Lesson Actions Block

The Lesson Actions block is a grouping of buttons that enables a learner to perform specific actions for a lesson. The style of these buttons are inherited from the theme, but can be customized independently:

Testing Sensei LMS

*Please note that the test site integrates with Smartlook to record your visit. Smartlook is GDPR compliant out of the box, and any recordings will be deleted automatically after 1 month.

If you find a bug, please submit an issue on Github or leave a comment on this post. Our tentative release date is February 9th.

WooCommerce Paid Courses 2.3.1

WooCommerce Paid Courses 2.3.1 fixes an issue where some text was not being translated.

Testing WooCommerce Paid Courses

Beta testers will receive the WooCommerce Paid Courses beta directly to their inbox. If you would like to sign up to be a beta tester and have a valid license, please fill out the beta tester signup form using the same email address you used to purchase your license.

If you find a bug, please leave a comment on this post. Our tentative release date is February 9th.

As these are beta releases, please test them 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.

For Developers

If you’re a developer, there’s a single deprecation in Sensei LMS that you need to be aware of:

  • Sensei_Block_Take_Course::get_course_prerequisite_message – Replaced by Sensei_Course::get_course_prerequisite_message
  • Sensei_Setup_Wizard::setup_wizard_set_script_translations (Added on February 9)

Thank you to all our testers and contributors!

Keep the conversation going…
