Student management capabilities
  • Explicit capabilities have been added to determine which users can create, view, update, and delete students.
  • Admins and LMS Managers have all student management capabilities.
  • Instructors and instructors assistants are granted limited view capabilities allowing them to only view students enrolled in their own courses/memberships.
  • Added the list_users capability to the “Instructor” role, allowing instructor’s to better view and manage their assistant instructors.
  • The new capabilities are: create_students, view_students, view_others_students, edit_students, edit_others_students, delete_students, & delete_others_students.
  • Added new actions to help differentiate enrollment creation and update events.
  • Added methods and logic for managing user management of other users.
  • Added a filter llms_table_get_table_classes to LifterLMS admin tables which allows customization of the CSS classes applied to the <table> elements. Thanks @pondermatic!
  • Added a filter llms_install_get_schema to the database schema to allow 3rd parties to run table installations alongside the core.
  • Added the ability to pull “raw” (unfiltered) data from the database via classes extending the LLMS_Post_Model abstract.
  • Added a bulk_set() method to the LLMS_Post_Model abstract allowing the updating of multiple properties in one command.
  • Added comment_status, ping_status, date_gmt, modified_gmt, menu_order, post_password as gettable\settable post properties via the LLMS_Post_Model abstract.
  • Links on reporting tables are now the proper color.
  • The editable_roles filter which determines which roles can manage which other roles is now always loaded (instead of being loaded only on the admin panel).
  • Updated LifterLMS Blocks to 1.5.2
Bug Fixes
  • Fixed an issue preventing the user_url property from being retrieved by the get() method of the LLMS_Abstract_User_Data class.
  • Fixed an issue causing the LLMS_Instructors::get_assistants() method to return assistants for the currently logged in user instead of the instructor of the instantiated object.
  • Fixed an issue which would allow LMS Managers to edit and delete site administrators.
