Live Demo

See this module in action on our LearnDash demo site!

Overview

Add the [uo_learndash_certificates] to any page, post or sidebar widget to display a list of certificates earned by the learner. The most recently earned certificate is listed at the top (oldest at the bottom). Certificates with the same name will be displayed each time they’re earned, as certificates may be reused across courses/quizzes, or they may even be earned again across time periods. Duplicates cannot be suppressed, which mirrors the behaviour of LearnDash.

Shortcode

To style the container, use:

 [uo_learndash_certificates class=’my-class’ title=’my-title’]

where “my-class” is a CSS class and “my-title” is a title for the element.

    Tried using [uo_learndash_certificates] inside a Divi builder unit and it just outputted ‘[uo_learndash_certificates]’ instead of the certificates. What is strange is that other [uo…] tags in the same module, i.e. right above this one, work fine. Any ideas?

      If shortcode rendering is a problem, make sure you check the module type in the Builder. If it’s Code, switch to Text instead. Almost make sure that module is turned on the Toolkit settings and page and also try it in the Classic Editor or Gutenberg to rule out it being an issue with the Divi Builder.

        Hi, as mentioned – there are existing shortcodes, including a UO one, in the exact same module which are rendering fine. I’ve ensured the module is turned on. The only certificate one I didn’t turn on was the widget one, do both have to be on to support the shortcode?

          The testing I mentioned in the normal editor would be helpful to potentially trace if it’s a builder conflict, though we haven’t seen it. Also make sure you copied and pasted from https://www.uncannyowl.com/knowledge-base/show-learndash-certificates/, just to make sure there’s no typo.

          We aren’t able to provide site-specific support in the Knowledge Base though. If you’re a Pro user, it would be great if you could log a ticket using your account and include a screenshot of what you have in the editor. If you’re using the free Toolkit, add a ticket to WordPress.org and we can take a look there.

            No worries, we’re pretty comfortable with WordPress and coding. We are confident the basics, like copying and pasting your shortcode via plain text window, have been covered. We are using the basic ‘text module’ Divi module and in the same block of code we’re using ‘uo_show for=’loggedin” and it works just fine. Just thought you’d want to test and see if you can replicate it as Divi is popular. Can’t open a ticket, but this is a heads up nevertheless 🙂
