Accessing your own quizzes and reports in WatuPRO is easy – it’s all under “My Quizzes” link. But how can you as admin see the reports and quizzes of your students? It’s also easy and you don’t need to login as each of them. But let’s split the question in two parts.
How do you see quizzes and reports of individual user?
1. Go to the “Users” page in your administration. This page is not under “Watu PRO” menu, it’s the page in your WordPress administration screen:
2. You will find one or two extra columns on this page. If you have the Reporting module, the columns are two, otherwise it’s one:
The columns “Quiz Data” and “Quiz Reports” are added by Watu PRO.
That’s it! Click on them and see the data for the given user.
How do you see cumulative data and reports:
There are several things people have in mind here, so let’s cover them all:
1. All the submissions on a given quiz are available through the main Watu PRO page (the one that lists your quizzes). It has a column “Taken” that shows how many users completed the quiz:
Just click on the number and you’ll get to the whole list.
Then, if you have the Reporting module, there are few more reports available from this page:
2. The Chart by grade is accessible from the top links on the said page:
3. Right before it there is the Stats per question link. It opens a page showing you how your users answered each question:
4. Do you see the Get Full Details link at the bottom of the image above? It will give you all the answers to the given questions with details, nicely ordered along with points etc.
An important upgrade to the WordPress autoresponder has been released and sent to eligible customers. Here are the new and improved features:

- Segmentation allows you send emails only to selected segments of your mailing lists (Intelligence module required)
- Select time of the day when autoresponder email should be sent
- Added email sending error log
- Added explanations about “In queue” and test “cron job” link
- Question based captcha can be used instead of (or along with) reCaptcha
- You can now automatically have users who subscribe to your mailing list be subscribed also to your blog (as WordPress users)
- Email templates (Intelligence module). More info here
If you are customer who didn’t get their upgrade, please email us to get it. If your order is more than 1 year old you can renew upgrades and support for another year with 60% discount.
Someone asked us why updates aren’t sent through the WordPress dashboard. Unfortunately WordPress doesn’t allow commercial plugins in the repository so this is not an option. It is not impossible to build our own update procedure but it’s really complicated work because we’ll need to also check if the user who’s getting the upgrade is active customer. Believe me, you don’t want to deal with entering license keys and problems when the domain name isn’t found in a registry. It’s much easier to delete the old plugin and install the new one once in few months.
Note: This plugin was initially developed for our WatuPRO customers (more info here) but it’s not limited to a specific plugin. So we are releasing it to other developers.
What Does the PDF Bridge Do?
This plugin lets you apply WordPress filter to any piece of content and convert it to PDF. Simple as that. Depending on the version you download it uses the html2fpdf library or the MPDF library.
How To Use It In Your Plugin Or Theme?
The plugin is super simple (you could very well write it yourself) and adds a filter that can be used from your plugin or theme. The filter name is “pdf-bridge-convert” and all you need to do it, is to apply it to your HTML content. Then don’t forget to output PDF headers when sending the content to the user. Here is an example assuming you have your HTML in $content:
$content = apply_filters("pdf-bridge-convert", $content);
The plugin has two versions:
- Version 0.2 that uses html2fpdf library. It’s small (121 KB) but doesn’t work with complex designs or foreign languages.
- Version 0.3 that uses MPDF library. It’s large (12.9 MB) but works with different languages and complicated designs.
Enjoy and let us know if you think it needs improvements.
