Option to Disable Detailed Quiz Attempt Views

In this update, we’ve added an option to disable detailed views for quizzes. This essentially lets instructors and administrators hide detailed quiz views from students. If this is disabled, you will also disable the ability for students to check for correct answers, explanations, and so on. To access this option, go to the WordPress admin panel, and navigate to Tutor LMS Pro > Settings > Quiz > Tutor LMS Pro Settings and toggle the setting off.

Improved License Key Activation Form

We have improved the license key activation area for premium users of Tutor LMS. This upgrade is to improve consistency with our recent upgrades to Themeum’s licensing system. It’s simpler, clearer, and helps you get things done quickly.

Accessibility Fixes for Lessons, Quizzes, and Assignments

In previous versions, we had an issue regarding drafted custom post types added by Tutor LMS. This issue allowed students to use WordPress default search to find drafted lessons, quizzes, and assignments, which is obviously not expected behavior. These inaccessible items were accessible due to a core inconsistency with WordPress. This issue is now fixed with the newest update.

Wrapping Up

With this update, we’ve tried to focus on all the core issues and enhancements that you all have requested in our support forums, comments, and messages. In fact, we believe we’ve fixed so many issues that I bet one of these is something you’ve faced in your daily usage of Tutor LMS on your eLearning platform!
