Take a Tour Into Tutor LMS Certificate Builder We Are Bringing for You

Sometimes I perform the role of Product Manager at Themeum. We always try to pay attention to our Facebook community group and other community groups related to WordPress. We try to understand what you are thinking and what battles you are fighting every day. Our User Experience design team has done a tremendous job with the certificate building experience (which you’re about to see below). But from my understanding of user requirements and available resources, I recommended to break the entire system into 3 milestones and release one after another.

But in our team meeting, both our CEO and UX Design lead agreed that we need to release the entire thing at once. Because sometimes, you don’t know you need something, and a creator or entrepreneur needs to find the solutions. So we all agreed to release everything at once.

This is really exciting for all of us. We have been getting taunts about our certificate designs being old and boring. So, we could not hold ourselves but share the plans we have been working on!

Brand New Certificate Management Screen

Again, we did not plan to release this so soon. The new certificate builder was supposed to be a part of Tutor LMS 2.0. So, the settings panel might look a bit overwhelming to you so we are not ruining the surprise this time ?

From this version, you will be able to have multiple active certificate templates. We have still not decided how to handle certificate management and we’re left with 2 equally viable options:

  • Each instructor will have a set of unique and customizable certificates
  • Each course will have a set of unique and customizable certificates

Bear in mind that this is still a work in progress, but have faith in us. We always think about the users and make their work as much frictionless as possible.

The Best Part – Premade Templates

If you have used any of our page builders, you know that we thrive on our world-class design team and the premade website templates to make your job as easy as possible. So, we have added the same shebang to the certificate builder. You will have great looking certificate templates ready for use inside the editor. Just pick a design and modify it to your taste and match it with your brand colors.

Media Library

This library will contain images uploaded by the administrators and instructors for certificates only. You can pick an image from here to use as the certificate background.


We plan to add some elements that would help you design the certificate with all your imagination. If you’re having trouble visualizing, think Canva, but inside WordPress and exclusively optimized for your certificates. Nothing is finalized yet, but here is the list of ingredients we have planned so far-

  1. Header
  2. Text Editor
  3. Image Box
  4. Student Name
  5. Instructor Name
  6. Course Name
  7. Instructor Signature
  8. Authorized Signature
  9. Authorized Name
  10. Certificate ID
  11. Authorized Company
  12. Point
  13. Grade

You will be able to simply drag and drop the elements in the builder and drag them into any place you like. You will be able to edit the text with various options like using Google Fonts, change font size, color, alignment, etc. The image field will help you to add logos and badges to the certificate.

Shape and Images Library

Having badges and logos on the certificate increases the certificate’s weight and creates a feeling of more excellent value. You might be able to add great-looking patterns and background images from services like Unsplash.

Let us know what you think about our plans ?

    Do I understand it correctly that the new great certificate management system will be included as part of the free LMS Tutor 2.0, or will it continue to be part of the Pro version?

    • Sekander

      The certificate feature will always be a part of the Pro version πŸ™‚

    So, when did the updated version of the certificate will release? As of now, we can’t even place a logo of our institute. So we need the updates fast……

    This is really great because from the current situation , students need professional certificate for showcasing after completing the course, this is not additional, this is a must

      We understand the need and we will try to work on much detail as possible πŸ™‚

    I am waiting impatiently. Thanks to this, the certificate will be able to be created by a “civil user” without the need to involve IT πŸ˜‰

    Next step: email editor.

      Custom fields support can be added after the initial release. However, you will be able to add your custom logo.

    This is amazing. Can’t wait to test and build certificates with this tool. Also if you please make sure to support RTL languages like Arabic that would be amazing. ??

    This is awesome! If possible, can you also include BuddyPress integration so we can add additional fields into the certificate like the student’s ID number, DOB, and etc? A completion date field would also be needed. Thanks!

    • Sekander
      February 11, 2021

      I have added a request for custom field support. If we get more requests, we will definitely consider adding it πŸ™‚
