Autocomplete Lessons & Topics when Quiz is Graded

When lesson or topic quizzes are manually graded in LearnDash (and the user receives a passing mark), users have to return to the associated lesson or topic to manually mark it complete.  When enabled, this module automatically marks the lesson or topic associated with the quiz complete so the learner doesn’t have to take that step. The lesson or topic will not be marked complete if the lesson or topic contains additional quizzes that have not yet been completed successfully.

Group Login Redirect

The Group Login Redirect module enables you to redirect group members to a group-specific page on login. Simply enter the redirect URL in the Redirect members on login field. In most cases, you should leave the Redirect priority field blank.  There are two situations in which you may want to enter a number in the field: If users are in multiple groups with login redirects, the redirect with the highest Redirect priority will take precedence. If you find that users are not being redirected to the desired URL on login, it’s likely that another plugin on your site is overriding the redirect with a redirect of a higher priority.  Enter a number larger than 99 in the Redirect priority field (try 99999 if you absolutely want this redirect to take priority over all others).

Frequently Asked Questions

How does Uncanny LearnDash Groups manage user roles? When you add Group Leaders using this plugin (by ecommerce, from the Group Management page or as an admin), the system adds the Group Leader role to any roles the user may already have. Some sites do not natively look for users to have multiple roles though, and what can happen is that if you edit a Group Leader from the user’s profile page in the back end then the Group Leader role can be removed. This will revoke access to things that normally require Group Leader permissions. If you do plan to update Group Leader profiles manually, we strongly recommend adding a plugin that supports multiple roles for a user, like the widely used User Role Editor. This will allow you to make profile updates and retain all assigned roles for your users. Can I show or hide content for specific groups? An added benefit of the Uncanny LearnDash Groups plugin is you can now create targeted messages to members of specific groups on any page or post using a shortcode: [uo_groups_restrict_content user_groups=”123″]Welcome![/uo_groups_restrict_content] In the example above, content wrapped in the shortcodes will be seen by everyone who is part of the group whose ID […]

Tin Canny Reporting – Technical Requirements

End-user requirements An up-to-date, modern browser such as: Google Chrome Mozilla Firefox Microsoft Edge MacOS Safari Most functionality will work on Internet Explorer 11, but the automatic “Mark Complete” integration offered in Tin Canny does not, and consequently we cannot support issues on Internet Explorer. Permalinks For Tin Canny to work properly the Permalink settings on your site (under Settings > Permalinks as an admin) cannot be set to Plain. Any other setting should work, but if you’re having trouble capturing data and errors are reported, double-check your permalink settings. Hosting requirements Minimum requirements are: PHP 5.6 WordPress 4.5 LearnDash 2.5 256MB of memory allocated to WordPress We recommend the following for optimal performance: PHP 7+ A WordPress-optimized host such as WP Engine or Pressidium    

Front End LearnDash Group Creation

Version 2.6 introduced a new shortcode to enable Group Leaders and Administrators to create groups from the WordPress front end: [uo_groups_create_group] This shortcode renders the same group creation form that’s available in the WordPress admin panel under Uncanny Groups > Create Group. The fields required to create a group are: Group name Total number of seats available Courses available to the group Group leader first name Group leader last name Group leader email address Once the form is submitted, the group is automatically created and the new group will be available to the Group Leader to manage via their Group Management page.  If the Group Leader assigned is a new user, an email will be sent to them containing their username and password.  Existing users that have been assigned as a Group Leader will also be sent an email and will automatically be able to see and manage the group the next time they log into the site.
