Where can I get the Moodle Access Token from?

The Moodle access token will have to be generated on the Moodle website. You can take a look at the step by step documentation process here.

If I update the password in WordPress, does it also get updated in Moodle?

 Yes. If you update the password in WordPress it gets updated in Moodle. However, the opposite does not hold true.

What happens if a user purchasing a course from WordPress already exists on Moodle?

If the user purchasing a course already exists on Moodle then the two accounts will be linked and a new user will not be created on Moodle. However, the password for both the systems will not be the same in this case. If the user wants the same password for both the systems he will have to update the password from WordPress and it will be reflected in Moodle too.

The only scenario in which the same password will be created for both the systems will be when the user does not exist on either system. In all other cases, the password will have to be updated by the user from WordPress to sync it.

On course synchronization it says that the courses have been synchronized but no courses are actually created in WordPress. What should I do?

Below are three reasons due to which courses and users are not synchronized from Moodle to WordPress.

  • The Edwiser Bridge plugin has been designed to work with Moodle version 2.9.x and higher. The courses will not be synchronized if you are using a lower version. If you decide to upgrade Moodle to the latest version please make sure to go through the Moodle configurations again and add all required functions.
  • Check if WordPress has been updated to the latest version.
  • Check if you have added the correct Moodle URL in the ‘Connection Settings‘ tab under the Edwiser Bridge Settings menu. Also, test the connection after you have added the Moodle URL and access token.

Get in touch with our Edwisers if you are still not able to resolve the issue after taking care of the points above.

If I delete a course from Moodle does it get deleted from WordPress too?

No. On deleting a course from Moodle no changes are made to the WordPress course. If you want to delete the course from WordPress too you will have to synchronize the courses again using the settings provided at the plugin back end.

What happens when I update course details in Moodle or WordPress?

If a course is updated in Moodle the changes will not reflect on the WordPress website. The courses will have to be synchronized again using the settings option provided by Edwiser Bridge to reflect the Moodle changes on WordPress too.

On updating course details in WordPress, all the changes will be lost if the imported course is updated at any later point in time.

Is there an option to add courses to the ‘Courses’ section from WordPress?

No. There isn’t any option to add new courses from the WordPress end. Only courses that have been imported from Moodle will be displayed in the ‘Courses’ section.

If a user has enrolled for a free course, can that transaction be seen on the ‘Orders’ page provided in the plugin’s backend.?

No. The ‘Orders‘ page provided in the back end will only display the paid transactions on the website. User enrollment information for free courses cannot be seen here.

What happens if I check the ‘User PayPal Sandbox’ option under the PayPal settings at the backend?

The ‘User PayPal Sandbox’ option is available for making dummy purchases. The option should be unchecked when the website is made live.

On synchronization is any data exported from WordPress to Moodle?

No data is never exported from WordPress to Moodle. On synchronization all data transfer is from Moodle to WordPress.

Why are students not getting enrolled for the courses they purchase?
