Howdy folks, we know you guys are eagerly waiting for the update of Tutor LMS 2.0 and we are almost ready with it. But we didn’t want to leave out valued existing users on the loose and not provide any improvements that can be made.

That’s not who we are. We have always been passionate about building tools that will ease your life and help you compete with the big guys. And in that vision, we are releasing a brand new update for both our free and pro plugins right with some big security improvements along with fixes & improvements.

Now Add Videos Using Shortcode

With the latest release of Tutor LMS, we are introducing the capability to add videos using Shortcode. Some video player plugins for WordPress deliver a shortcode for the hosted videos. From now on, in the Tutor LMS course builder, you will now see a new Shortcode option while choosing your video source.

As an example, if you have hosted a video using Presto Player, you will get a shortcode for that video. Just copy & paste that shortcode and use it by choosing the new Shortcode source option.

Significant Security Update

These security improvements should make your LMS site more secure than ever against malicious actors. So you concentrate on building your eLearning site rather being worried all about security.
