Example: 

[tutor_instructor_list column_per_row="1" count="2" layout="pp-top-left"]

The shortcode is fully customizable so you can choose the attributes of your instructor list. You can customize the given shortcode to your liking using the following attributes.

  • pp-top-full

If you wish to choose a specific layout for the instructors’ list, you can choose the shortcode with your desired layout shortcode. The shortcode you choose will override the default layout option selected from the settings menu of Tutor LMS.

You can choose the number of rows, how many instructors you want to show in a row using count, choose your desired layout, and more. You can also customize the shortcode or choose your layout from the Instructor settings menu of Tutor LMS.

You can find out more from the documentation and from the shortcode documentation.

    I would like to know if you have improved the reporting.
    That is, if you have also integrated a log that records all user activities while browsing the course.

    It is one of the fundamental characteristics to be accredited by the ministry for courses recognized with educational credits.

    Grazie e ciao

      Hi,

      I am sorry to inform you that we do not have the features you have requested yet. For now, you can use a session log plugin.

    The problem STILL exists for Restrict Content Pro. Can you please fix this?
