LifterLMS Version 5.0.0

Posted in
User Information Form Builder
  • Customize all user information collection forms using the block editor for drag and drop and WYSIWYG form building.
  • Customize field labels, placeholders, descriptions and more with an easy point and click interface.
  • Determine if fields are required or optional with a simple toggle switch.
  • Update the form layout with the block editor. Reorder fields, add columns, and more with a simple drag and drop interface.
  • Remove unwanted fields with the click of a button.
User Location Information Form Fields
  • During user account creation and updates the user location fields are now locale aware ensuring that the proper terminology is used and only locale-required fields are displayed for the selected locale.
  • The “Country” field has been updated to be automatically populated with a list of countries. View the full list in the file at languages/countries.php and the filter lifterlms_countries can be used to modify the default list at runtime.
  • The “State” field on user forms has been updated to be automatically populated with a list of states (provinces or regions) for the selected country. This list of states can be found in the file at languages/states.php and the filter lifterlms_states can be used to modify the default list at runtime.
  • Both “Country” and “State” fields are now searchable dropdowns elements.
  • The lists of countries and states will be automatically updated during future releases based on information provided by GeoNames APIs.
Mergecodes everywhere via new [llms-user] shortcode
  • Allows merging most user information field data into any post or page, email, or notification (as well as widgets and more).
  • Email and password confirmation fields may now be made optional.
  • “User Information Options” have been largely removed in favor of determining which fields are displayed via the forms UI
  • The former “User Information Options” settings area has been renamed to “User Privacy Options”.
  • Removed email lookup logic since wp_authenticate() supports email addresses as user_login since WP 4.5.
  • Custom user fields added via filters are now displayed on the admin panel at priority 11 instead of 10.
  • Added shortcode processing in LifterLMS-generated emails.
  • If a symbol cannot be found for the supplied currency code, return the code instead of an empty string.
Bug Fixes
  • Changed the filter on return of LLMS_Person_Handler::get_password_reset_fields() from lifterlms_lost_password_fields to llms_password_reset_fields.
  • Fixed duplicate references to the llms-select2 script.
Development changes
  • Added before and after actions hooks for admin tools.
  • The filter lifterlms_before_user_${action} is now triggered by do_action_ref_array() instead of do_action() allowing modification of $posted_data and $fields via hooks.
  • A number of action and filter hooks have been moved to new locations within the codebase. They will continue to function as expected (with some minor exceptions).
  • Enqueue select2 on account and checkout pages for searchable dropdowns for country & state.
  • Stop loading removed processor “tabletocsv”.
