WPLMS 4.0 impact on Site speed

We now reach 6 months of launch of WPLMS version 4.0 series. And as we gear up for the next year 2021 , we are now "really" excited to show/prove why we revamped our entire architecture to version 4.  The evolution of web never stops and things where were earlier un-imaginable in version 3 of WPLMS are now possible. As version 4 gets stable and even though there are bugs one can not ignore the over improvement in the User experience and speed.  The rules of the web are changing fast and we wanted WPLMS customers to be on top of things when these rules change.  We did track the overall improvement in our main site and the impact is satisfying. Reaching to a site speed core of 90+ from Google insights tool for mobile was earlier not possible in version 3 of WPLMS. This is now possible in version 4. I will share 2 images here : [caption id="attachment_322682" align="alignnone" width="874"] Version 3 WPLMS speed, the max we could reach was 24[/caption] Versus the WPLMS version 4 speed comparison [caption id="attachment_329542" align="alignnone" width="920"] WPLMS version4 [ Check latest lab data ][/caption]  Clearly the Wplms version 3 was not optimised for the modern web and while we are still working on further improving the above metric in version 4, we are slowly reaching where other WP themes are unable to reach. We did a short video on how we reached this score on a brand new WP site : If you simply compare this above metric  with WP themes which claim to be fastest WordPress themes, WPLMS is still comparable to the fastest themes. One of the major things which changed in version 4 was eliminating our dependency from jQuery, cookies, sessions and moving to a JWT login system built for scalability. There are some amazing technologies which have emerged in 2020 like the serverless / JAMstack and WPLMS version 4 is fully equipped to handle these. takipçi satın al takipçi satın al takipçi satın al takipçi satın al takipçi satın al sosyal medya paneli escort izmir

  What prompted the shift :  WPLMS is still the most advanced theme and education platform on WordPress. But an aspect of technology is that it is ever evolving it is time for WPLMS for a change. Back when we released WPLMS it was using the stable technologies available at that time. Progressive enhancements in any software can only take you so far but a time comes when there is a need for a paradigm shift. The WordPress 5.0 released in 6th December 2018, BuddyPress 5.0, September 30, 2019. Both of these changes focus on WordPress as a HeadLess CMS which meant everything in WordPress is possible via API's and ReactJS became core part of WordPress. These were favourable conditions for WPLMS revival. During the times of COVID19 , there is no denying that online education has gained more importance than ever.  However, there is a  dearth affordable LMS solutions in the education industry. Almost all of WordPress based LMS solutions are an anomaly in the online Education sphere. As leading LMS in WordPress we have to compete with LMS systems outside of WordPress as well. Over the past years, we've gained a lot of knowledge, seen thousands of use cases, studied our competition, assessed the requirements of users and know the limitations of technologies. Thus the 4.0 version will bring about a platform on which we can develop further. Our Roadmap would easily explain what all is possible in the new WPLMS.   Vision :  An affordable LMS solution which meets the technology standards of the time !

Coming up next : Exportable Courses in WPLMS

WPLMS is a framework which keeps the Instructor at the centre of the Education verse. We've always focussed on how to make things easier for the Instructor , whether its building courses, or discussions or even appointments. Yet, there was one crucial aspect which was missing : "Independence" from platforms, instructors should always be in-charge of the content they create. Hence, our upcoming feature "Exportable Courses", of course it comes with the flexibility of creating your very own course in your favorite page builder ( Elementor or divi ). With this remarkable development WPLMS can also be used as a Course authoring tool ( similar to Articulate Rise or Adobe captivate ), you will be able to export your courses as SCORM or xAPI compliant course and run in any spec. compliant LMS's. The idea is that exported Courses will be independent packages, capable of running in any environment. Of course, all the backend ( LRS or WPLMS ) details will be recorded at the time of exporting the course. We're also looking into the possibility of encrypting the course contents with a unique key, making the resources and confidential ( quiz answers) data secure. What do you think about this ? Share your thoughts.

SCORM Compliance

With the WPLMS 3.9.5 update, we're now fully SCORM compliant. Earlier you were able to embed SCORM packages with out the ability to track scores or completion data. With the update, you'll now be able to embed and track Completion (passed/failed), Quiz scores and Progress of users in the SCORM packages. We've tested our SCORM test with Adobe Captivate, Articulate Rise and iSpring and all have consistent results.   See this link for details :

WPLMS will be back in Themeforest !

[UPDATE] WPLMS is back on Themeforest. Today we saw this. This is so irresponsible of Envato. [Earlier .... a sleepless weekend] WPLMS theme is soft disabled in Themeforest. But there is no need to worry and we will be back on themeforest soon. adana elit escort bayan There are 2 reasons why this happened :
  1. There was some copyright issue in our Demo16 design because of which we have to remove the demo16 design from WPLMS. Note that it is only the design part so no code related things were involved. During the design process for taking inspiration from sites we un-knowingly copy design elements and somethings this can look very similar despite being built saperately.
  2. The Envato Theme review plugin is showing few errors and warnings like multiple text domains in theme code. Use of few standard functions like esc_html , esc_url etc. where it is required. The Envato has made some things mandatory for all themes recently.
We've made the fixes and uploaded on Themeforest within hours of the report. However, the Envato theme review process takes a longer time. Since the issues are complex / technical in nature, they're reviewed by Envato review specialists which seems to be taking lot of time.   This is what we see in our dashboard. This is the article read more links to :   There is no reason to panic, this happens as Envato wants us to look into some things urgently which is beneficial for the theme and project. WPLMS has been soft disabled in the past several times and we come back everytime.

  How to activate for Updates When you complete checkout , you'll get an email with the plugin and license key. You'll need the license key for updates, so make sure you activate the plugin using the license key from WP Admin - LMS - Addons. Watch this video :   I am sure many of you will have the following question. Why not include it in main WPLMS ? This was one of the most wanted features in WPLMS and we are still reluctant to include PHP based PDF generation because it consumes a lot of server memory. So, slow servers might not support PDF generation on the fly. Even servers with good configuration might not support simultaneous generation of multiple PDFs. The Certificate builder exists to support the PDFs and will be added to main WPLMS in future updates.

WPLMS Facebook Group, Interact with us, share feedback and ideas

As developers we really want to spend more time on development and less time on writing articles, blog posts and email campaigns and marketing stuff.  But we do understand this leads to a gap between our customers and development team. We know our users want to be informed what we're working on and share their ideas and feedback and even consult each other. Forums are no longer an interactive way for this kind of information, you need to login then create topic and then wait for our updates. Most of the time, the team is really busy in either development or in support topics which leads to our ignoring of such important tasks.   There we're adding a facebook group to VibeThemes page. İstanbul Escort Bayanlar This is the link : Please do join and participate with us. You can share any thought with us. Any thing which gets finalised will go to the trello log.
