Alongside, we have also incorporated functionalities so that we can give place to a series of items such as library, course, quiz, user activity, multiple sidebar feature etc.; which admin can customize from his/her end. The functionality for selecting the multiple sidebars has been added and these are displayed from each post on front end. We have created the functionality through which admin can track the each user activity on website like post view, course pages view, login/logout, quiz attempts etc. The course completion percentage (%) and course completion rules will be manage by the admin.
We have implemented the functionality of display similar posts, user comments and author details on blog post page. We have created the functionality to manage all these by creating various widgets.
