Action Scheduler Library

Switches from prospress/action-scheduler to woocommerce/action-scheduler — The repository has been moved but it’s the same library & upgrades to latest version (3.1.6)

While this is a semantically major upgrade of the library there are no backwards incompatible changes to the public API.

There have been several deprecated functions/classes. The LifterLMS core does not directly use any of these deprecated functions but 3rd parties might and should review the changelog of the library to see if they are affected by any deprecations: https://github.com/woocommerce/action-scheduler/releases

Deprecations
  • Function LLMS() is deprecated in favor of llms().
Templates Modified
  • templates/global/form-login.php
  • templates/global/form-registration.php

Breaking Changes

WP Session Manager Library
  • Removes the bundled WP Session Manager plugin dependency, all public methods included with this plugin have been removed without direct replacements.
  • Removes bundled JS bootstrap 3 dependencies: “collapse” and “transition”

Removes classnames from student dashbord login and registration form wrapper elements which conflict with bootstrap causing visual issues.

These classes are not used by the LifterLMS core or add-ons and are a legacy class that hasn’t been removed for fear of creating backwards compatibility issues with any custom css, 3rd party themes, etc…

Removed CSS Classes
  • templates/global/form-login.php: Removes col-1 class from the div.llms-person-login-form-wrapper element.
  • templates/global/form-registration.php: : Removes col-2 class from the div.llms-new-person-form-wrapper element.
