This plug-in needs work. The teacher cannot communicate with learners and the learners can't communicate with each other. The grading feature doesn't work properly (says I need to grade quizzes I've already graded) and frankly there needs to be an option to not grade quizzes. I have post-graduate learners for whom there's no correct answer to the gap fill questions I ask. The LMS doesn't allow me to not provide an answer to questions. Also, lesson course media and featured images don't display. I'd also like to be able to post announcements to the dashboard for things like live guest lectures and events or benefits they've earned based upon their participation or achievement levels. Because the plugin does none of this, I'll have to find a developer to customize it or create a program from scratch that does what I want it to do. The good parts are the easy connection with woocommerce, the content drip feature, and the clean learning mode screen. That's why the plugin earned 3 stars.

Минималистичный по сравнение с его громоздкими братьми. При этом функциональный. Плохо, что отсутствует русский язык. Переведено на 44%, но даже эти проценты оставляют желать лучшего. Особо отмечу наличие режима обучения, когда скрываются все меню и пр., чтобы студент мог сконцентрироваться на курсе.

I really want to give a positive review but I can't so long as this error persists. I use up to date WP with Kadence, one of the most common themes. But Sensei is not working right. WordPress - are you actively working on this? It would be terrific if you did maintain it. A native plugin to turn WordPress into an LMS is a worthy thing. My issue: after updating module/lesson content the modules get duplicated multiple times and append the name of the instructor to the name. It makes no sense and looks ridiculous. So your module url goes from "WordPress course" to "WordPress course (instructorname)" to "WordPress course (instructorname, instrcutorname)." It's absolutely unworkable and sucks from an admin or user perspective. Please fix and maintain this plugin. I will have to find something else at the moment.

Just downloaded the stable translation of pt_BR language and when active the course,lesson,quiz page stop working and the site always load the index.php from the theme. It seem something is broke in the translation files that causes the wordpress loop not seeing the template files, and always load the site home/index. I downloaded the .mo and .po from https://translate.wordpress.org/projects/wp-plugins/sensei-lms/stable/pt-br/default/ And moved the files to: [wordpress root]/wp-content/languages/plugins/

I know the dark mode in the WordPress default theme is pretty new, but nevertheless it seems that this plugin has some issues with it as text does disappear when dark mode is switched on.
