‘Who said free commodities are not valuable?
In fact, they are priceless!
Edwiser Bridge is one of such commodities. It is, in literal terms, a “bridge” between the ruling Open Source giants- Moodle and WordPress. Edwiser Bridge makes the migration, management and full fledged usability of data between a CMS and and LMS, possible.
When you turn the never-before-possible to reality, you have a priceless product in hand. And that is Edwiser Bridge for you.
We are excited to bring to you- the savviest Edwiser Bridge update till date!
Saving no time, let’s head to the new features.
#1 Refund functionality for orders placed using Edwiser Bridge
Now you can give refunds to your students or clients from Orders section under Edwiser Bridge.
- As an admin, you can make sure that people other than yourself are also notified whenever a refund is initiated.
- The student or client will be notified by email about this action.
- Guess what, admins can customise the email template that goes out to clients for a refund.
- In the field “Refund amount”, fill the exact amount to be paid back.
- In the field “Reason for Refund”, you can mention the reason that you are providing the refund for.
#2 Settings for Refund Notifications
The update allows you to set whom to send payment refund notifications. These settings are added in Edwiser Bridge > General Settings.
- There’s a tick box to choose whether you (as the admin) have to be notified every time a refund is initiated.
- A second field lets you enter email addresses manually.
#3 Improved User Account Page
We have improved the user account page and now your buyers will get all the purchase & course-related information at one place.
- With the improved page, its super-easy to update your profile and change account passwords.
- The passwords updated here will reflect on both WordPress and Moodle sites.
#4 Enhanced Security

- For an extra touch of security, we have added password confirmation fields on the User Account page.
#5 New ‘Meta’ box on the Edwiser Bridge Order page
A meta box has been added to the Edwiser Bridge Orders page.
- The new meta box displays the order status update history.
- It shows details and notifications like order placed, IPN notifications of PayPal, refund status, etc.
#6 New Order Status “Refunded”
Check out the new order status that we have defined!
- Previously there were only three options for order status on order edit page as: ‘Pending’, ‘Failed’ and ‘Completed’.
- A new option – ‘Refunded’ has been added to show whether your amount has been successfully refunded.
- As soon as the order amount is fully refunded, the status automatically changes from ‘Completed’ to ‘Refunded’.
- This will be visible to any user after logging in.
- Visit your User Account page – head to ‘Orders’ – view ‘Purchase History’.
#7 Two New Email Templates for the Admin
In the ‘Manage Email Templates’ page, we added two new templates keeping in mind the refund feature of Edwiser Bridge 1.3.2.
- Refund Success mail to the admin or specific email lists
- Refund Success mail to the customer
Of course, every new update is also a chance to rectify errs of the previous version
We found two pressing issues that needed attention. Here we go.
- The grid on ‘My Courses’ and ‘Courses’ page now shows boxes of the same height for all courses
- We restyled the ‘Take this Course’ button which was earlier poorly formatted.
