WooCommerce Paid Courses 1.1 Beta

Updated on August 16, 2019

As promised, WooCommerce Paid Courses 1.1 is now available for beta testing!

We’ve been busy working on adding the ability to attach multiple products to the same course in the WooCommerce Paid Courses extension. This means that you will soon be able to sell your courses as a simple product, as a subscription and as a membership if you so desire:

A Note for Those Using Memberships

As part of this work, we’ve removed the membership notice from the course archive, course category and single course pages for courses that are part of a membership.

Instead, the course excerpt will now be displayed on the course archive and course category pages, while the course content and lessons will be displayed on the single course page, regardless of whether or not the course is part of a membership. Making this content visible is an opportunity to promote the course and entice people to enrol.

What Else is in this Release?

  • The Unpurchased Courses shortcode has been updated to include course memberships.
  • Student progress is no longer deleted when a subscription is cancelled. This means a student can pick up where they left off should they later resubscribe.

Deprecated Methods

  • Sensei_WC::assign_user_to_unassigned_purchased_courses
  • Sensei_WC::start_purchased_courses_for_user

Release Testing

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.

If you find a bug, please submit an issue on Github or leave a comment here. Our tentative release date for WooCommerce Paid Courses 1.1 is September 3rd.

As this is a beta release, please test it 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.

Thank you to all our testers and contributors!
