Current version: v1.0.0
We are excited to announce today the release of our latest add-on plugin, one that is sure to add an extra element of life to your courses.
wpForo is one of the popular forum plugins. Using forums with your courses will increase the engagement of your learners with your courses.
Options for Single forums
With wpForo, you have an inbuilt option for whom your forums will be visible.
You can select whether a user must be enrolled in ALL of the associated courses versus ANY of the associated courses.
If you select ‘ALL’ then the learner has to be enrolled in all courses before they will be able to access the forum.
If you select ‘ANY’, then the learner needs to only be enrolled in any one of the associated courses in order to access and participate.
You can include a custom message to display access limitation. This field supports HTML markup so if you are selling courses you can include a link to your sales page!
Allow Read-Only Access
By default, anyone who attempts to access a course forum who doesn’t meet the linked Courses criteria will be presented with an access denied message.
However, you may have some situations where you want to allow non-enrolled learners the ability to still read through the forum content, but without the ability to post.
Why would you want to do this?
For the marketing point of view, it will help to lead learners to the course sales page. If you are selling your courses, you are encouraging them to read the discussion and make a purchase to participate.
