See below for more information on these upgrades.


Sensei LMS Compatibility

Sensei LMS integrates effortlessly with your WordPress site, making it easy to create courses, lessons and quizzes. Use the LSX theme with Sensei LMS to showcase your online courses. Add WooCommerce to be able to sell access to your courses.

LightSpeed has redesigned every major template to fit with our LSX default styles. During this process, we upgraded two online course websites that were running the Storefront theme to LSX, namely the award-winning Weg and Go! Magazine online photography course websites.

The following Sensei templates were updated in this release:

Events Calendar Compatibility

GitHub folder structure:

Plugin files on Github, related to the Events Calendar, have been restructured for better organisation. This allows anyone to find the files they need with minimal effort and maximises efficiency and workflow. At LightSpeed we embrace and incorporate procedural best practices in to our products, always bearing the open source vision in mind.
