LifterLMS Helper Version 3.3.0

  • The main function llms_helper() is declared conditionally when the class LifterLMS_Helper is not yet declared.
  • Added a constant LLMS_HELPER_DISABLE which allows disabling of the plugin.
  • Distribution release zips now include a composer.json file to allow for installation via composer.

  • Use self::$instance in favor of self::$_instance.
  • Use llms() in favor of deprecated LLMS().
  • Use llms_filter_input() to access $_POST data in various places.
  • Use strict comparison for in_array().

LifterLMS Helper Version 3.0.0

  • This is nearly a complete rewrite of the codebase. Things have moved but no features have been removed.
  • Requires LifterLMS version 3.22.0 or later
  • License key activation is now on a per-site basis as opposed to a per product basis. This means that if you have a license key for a bundle you don’t have to enter the key for each add-on, you enter the key only once and it will activate ALL the add-ons.
  • The “Licenses” tab has been removed and your add-ons and licenses are now managed via LifterLMS -> Add-ons & More
  • A migration script exists to move license keys from previous versions of the helper to this version. After upgrading check LifterLMS -> Add-ons & More to ensure your keys were successfully migrated.
  • You can now install add-ons through the this plugin without having to download and install them manually. Enter your license key(s) and select the add-ons you wish to install to have them installed automatically. You can bulk install as well.
  • You can now subscribe to beta channels of LifterLMS and any LifterLMS add-ons. Visit the LifterLMS -> Status -> Betas screen to subscribe to betas. Always use betas at your own risk, by nature they’re unstable!
  • Uses the v3 REST api for all API calls
  • Added RTL language support
  • Added i18n support
  • Removed and replaced various functions
  • Fixes many bugs and almost certainly introduces some new ones
