    Ah y también que se incorpore un buscador de cursos tan maravilloso como el propio plugin!

  • cursosmandala June 22, 2020

    Soy muy fan de Tutor LMS creo que es el mejor complemento que existe en WP ahora mismo para crear una web de cursos. Pero creo que hacen faltan algunas funciones muy importantes:

    -Contar con notificaciones para saber cuándo un instructor se da de alta en la página y que no esté esperando a ser aprobado durante días.
    -Poder redactar un email de presentación y bienvenida, para alumnos y para instructores. Ambos requieren de emails diferentes.
    -Contar con alguna forma de personalizar mejor los certificados, pudiendo traducirlos al idioma que se necesite y pudiendo subir un diseño propio acorde a la imagen corporativa.
    -Algunas líneas del complemento no se pueden traducir al idioma que uno necesita, esto debería revisarse.
    -Que los estudiantes y profesores puedan loguearse con sus redes sociales, por ejemplo con Facebook y/o Twitter además de la manera normal que ya existe.
    -Que pueda personalizarse mejor las páginas de registro, sobre todo la de acceso al escritorio.

    Por lo demás creo que es un plugin excelente! Gracias!

      You will be glad to know that most of the ideas you have mentioned is possible already!

      1. Notification: you can install the notification plugin to set a notification for new signups for now. We have already finished studying all the possible email notifications and we will implement soon.

      2. Welcome email: there is a hook for enrollment, you can use that to trigger a welcome email. You will need a developer to implement this.

      3. Certificate Customization and Translation: this feature is already available. Here is the documentation https://docs.themeum.com/tutor-lms/extensions/certificate-customizer/

      4. Translations: We are aware about this issue and it will be fixed on the next update.

      5. Social login: This feature is already available in our themes. One plugin integration is already under development.

      6. Custom fields on registration: Here is the documentation to do that https://docs.themeum.com/tutor-lms/developers/custom-field-on-registration/

    Hi there! This plugin is fantastic and much more easy to use than any other plugin out there. I just love it. However, can you consider putting in an upload button for images in questions? Writing html in description box is not very easy when the questions themselves are in in image format

    • Sekander June 8, 2020

      Thank you for the feature suggestion. We will consider adding this in our future update ?

      • sugataahad15 June 8, 2020

        You are welcome. Love the LMS and I hope it will cross Learndash and other LMS plugins in terms of popularity

    Hello guys!

    Is there a way to auto-enroll instructors to their courses? I could notice that once an instructor publishes a new course they have to buy it to enroll it and to see Q&A?

    Also, wouldn’t it be better to place an “update course” button once a course was published but needs to be updated?

    Even so, this is by far a better plugin than others in the market.


    • Sekander May 28, 2020

      Thank you for the good words. It encourages us a lot to do more great things! ?

      We have plans to remove the requirement to enroll to see the course content for admins and instructors. So, auto enrollment will not be needed.

      There will also be an interface to manage the Q&A feature very soon.

      The update course button is available if the instructors are permitted to publish courses directly.

      We would really appreciate if you can post a review on WordPress.org.

    Is there a way to disable Tutor LMS’s registration page and popup or to use alternative registration page?

    I’d like users to signup and login using Peepso where I have custom fields but with Tutor LMS it is not possible. I think we should be able to choose how users signup and login without being forced to use Tutor LMS forms.

    What do you think?

    • Sekander May 21, 2020


      I agree with you. We have plans to allow to set custom login link very soon. For now, you can hire a developer to override the system.

    Hello, regarding to the new feature announced “Q&A reply feature on the course home page”, I can’t see it in the updated version. Looks like this is similar to the version 1.6.2. Can you please publish a screenshot to see the change you mentioned in this post?

    • Sekander May 21, 2020


      There is a tab for Q&A at the course home page. The students can communicate with the instructors from there. We have added a screenshot above.
