LifterLMS Version 3.19.2

  • Fixed issue preventing <iframes> from being used in quiz question descriptions

  • Fixed issue causing course featured image to display in place of lesson feature images
Template Updates

LifterLMS ConvertKit Version 2.0.1

  • When adding or changing API keys, test calls will be made to check if the keys are functional. If they are not a warning will be displayed.
  • Fixed issue preventing cached tags and sequences from being cleared by the button on the integration settings
  • Deprecated LLMS_ConvertKit_Api->clear_cache(), use $skip_cache when calling api class methods to bypass cached results. This function should no longer be used by third party integrations, custom plugins, or themes as it will be removed in the next major version.

Updates and enhancements
  • Added a “My Memberships” tab to the student dashboard
  • “My Memberships” preview area
  • Updated admin panel order status badges to match frontend order status badges
  • Added a new recurring order status “Pending Cancel.” Orders in this state will allow students to access course / membership content until the next payment is due, on this date, instead of a recurring charge being made the order will move to “Cancelled” and the student’s enrollment status will change to “Cancelled” removing their access to the course or membership.
  • When a student cancels an active recurring order from the student dashboard, the order will move to “Pending Cancellation” instead of “Cancelled”
  • Students can re-activate an order that’s Pending Cancellation moving the expiration date to the next payment due date
  • Added the ability to edit the access expiration date for orders with limited access settings and for orders in the “pending-cancel” state

  • When viewing taxonomy archives for any course or memberhip taxonomy (categories, tags, and tracks), if a term description exists, it will be used instead of the default catalog description content defined on the catalog page.
  • Added a filter (llms_archive_description) to allow filtering of the archive description
  • When WP_DEBUG is disabled the scheduled-actions posttype interface is now available via direct link. Useful for debugging but don’t want to expose a menu-item link to clients. Access via wp-admin/edit.php?post_type=scheduled-action. Be warned: you shouldn’t be modifying scheduled actions manually and that’s why we’re not exposing this directly, this should be used for debugging only!
  • Updated the function used to check if lessons have featured images to improve performance and resolve an incompatibility issue with WP Overlays plugin.
Bug fixes
  • Fixed issue causing “My Courses” title to be duplicated on the student dashboard when viewing the endpoint
  • Fixed issue causing the trial price to be displayed with a strike-through during a sale
  • Fixed coupon issue causing coupons to expire at the beginning of the day on the expiration date instead of at the end of the day
