Admins Can Directly Publish Courses from Frontend
With Tutor LMS admins can now directly publish a course from the frontend course builder. On the right-hand side, now there’s a “Publish Course” button. So you can directly publish a course from the frontend without even having to access the backend. For other instructors, it will have the old “Submit for review” button so that admins can review it before publishing.
Set Course Type (Free or Paid) from Frontend
In the previous update, you could attach a course as a product just by entering the price tag. But now you can enter a free course as a product as well. Once you start building the course, select the free option if it’s free or enter a price tag if it’s paid.
Tweaks to Boost Functionality
A new method
`is_course_purchasable()`, has been added to check if the course type is free or paid. In case the course is free, it will return false under ‘is_course_paid’ filter. If you want to change a template location and add it from a third-party plugin, there’s a new function for that in this update. Filter to change template path
apply_filters(‘tutor_get_template_path’, $template_location, $template). A helper method to get course type
`tutils()->price_type()` has also been added.
There were a few minor issues that we fixed in this update of Tutor LMS. All the known issues with the frontend course builder have been fixed. Moreover, duplicate entry for the topic issue in the course builder is now resolved. There was an issue with adding multiple courses on the wishlist that has also been fixed.
