If you haven’t seen, this past week we released a fantastic free extension to LearnDash: the ability to award points and badges to users based on their interactions with your courses, lessons, and quizzes. Well, we also took a moment to clean up some of the functionality in the LearnDash software, and to add a couple items.
A few weeks ago we announced that the LearnDash code has been internationalized. For those of you unfamiliar with what this is, it essentially means that LearnDash can now be translated into any language quite easily. In this update, we have further refined the internationalized code, and even added a few languages. Going forward, LearnDash is now available in English, Spanish, French, and Dutch. It is our goal to add more languages over time. If you have translated the software to another language, we would greatly appreciate it if you donate your translation so that others may benefit.
Besides the minor bug updates and further efforts for internationalization, we also added a nifty feature (by popular demand) for certificates. In the past, users received a certificate to print as soon as they successfully met a certificate threshold for a quiz. Now, users have the option to print the certificate right away, or come back at a later date and print the certificate by going to the course progress. The image below demonstrates what this looks like by using the Course Progress shortcode in LearnDash, which posts all quiz results. If the user did not earn a certificate, the option to print will not be available.
In the near future, keep an eye out for some exciting updates we have coming in a related capacity, along with some major new features – all of which are based on the feedback we have received from our customers. Have a suggestion? Feel free to let us know and you may even see it implemented!
