Release Notes & Roadmap

xAPI Support

Easily track and run reports on content published to xAPI.  We’ve added support for Storyline and Rise first with Captivate and iSpring to come soon.  Available in version 5.90 or greater.

Use Your Theme's Buttons

Added support for launching content using your theme’s built-in button:

More Reports!

New reports include:

What content did a user view?
Who has not viewed a particular course?
How did people answer?

Fullscreen Support

Either insert your content as an iFrame or “Link that opens in a same window” to see the new Fullscreen Options. Once enabled, users can click on a button to launch the content in fullscreen. They can then use the Escape button to exit fullscreen mode. Go to to see it in action.

Change the Upload Directory

By default, all uploads get added to a folder called wp-content/uploads/articulate_uploads.  With this new feature, you’ll be able to customize the directory so that content gets uploaded to any directory you choose.

My Content

See every page or post that contains your e-learning content on a single screen.


= 5.94 = Latest version – July 2022
* This update substantially improves performance.
* Make less license check calls.
* Reduce calls that count the number of directories in the Content Library.
* Remove unncessary logging.
* Fixes issue where xAPI content would not launch in PHP 8.
* NEW: When you run a report on deleted content, you will now see a new button called Hide This Content From Reports. Clicking this button will prevent the content from showing in the dropdown to run reports. If you hide a content item from Reports, there is currently no way to make it visible again.

= 5.93 = June 2022
* The default lightbox (Color Box) and its themes are now responsive!
* Added better support for SCORM content. Instead of your content displaying a message saying it can’t communicate with an LMS, the content will now show as expected. You’ll need to re-upload your content to utilize this new functionality.
* xAPI support no longer requires PHP sessions. This fix resolves many unexpected issues created by adding xAPI functionality.
* We now display content better, especially when multiple content items are on the same page. Some buttons and text no longer display on the far left of a page or post.

= 5.92 =
We fixed an issue related to deleting attempts. We also resolved an issue with custom launch buttons where the orange Launch button would be displayed instead of the selected one. Finally, we added a min-width to the CSS for full screen mode to ensure content would cover the entire width of the screen.

= 5.91 =
Added support for fullscreen mode. Either insert your content as an iFrame or “Link that opens in a same window” to see the new Fullscreen Options. Once enabled, users can click on a button to launch the content in fullscreen. They can then use the Escape button to exit fullscreen mode. Go to to see it in action.

Added support for launching content using your theme’s built-in button:

Added better support for ungraded questions in the Reports.

= 5.90 =
Added beta support for xAPI tracking in Articulate Storyline and Articulate Rise content. You’ll see two new menu items under Articulate including Reports & Statement Viewer. Reports will enable you to see how a user scored on content including their answers. Simply click on the score percentage to see that user’s details. Statement Viewer can be used to see the raw data that is getting sent through the xAPI statements. While this update has been thoroughly tested, I recommend only installing this when you have time to troubleshoot any problems that may arise including plugin installation failures or even fatal errors.

NEW! iFrames can now be inserted with a new “Responsive” setting. Once you select Reponsive, you’ll set your aspect ratio (either 4:3 or 16:9). This ensures your content looks great in an iframe no matter the device or your theme! If that doesn’t give you the look you want, select Custom and set your width and height to whatever works best for your content. This only impacts newly uploaded content or content reinserted from the Content Library.
