[CoursePress Pro] Upload function

Please advise if Coursepress Pro has the ability to enable students to upload their identify document to their account profile to verify their account before they can do a course.

    Hello Anna Bouhail

    I hope you’re well today and thank you for your question!

    Currently, CoursePress doesn’t provide such option.

    The profile itself is a WP user profile so you can use e.g. BuddyPress and it’s extended profile fields to provide such an upload option. A plugin such as User Profiles Made Easy or a Cimy User Extra Fields should do the trick too, allowing users to upload their documents.

    That, however, will not be integrated with CoursePress in that sense that only those who uploaded will be able to access the course.

    You could consider a workaround though:

    – instead of adding a field to user profile, create another course with just one unit and one module where module is “File Upload”.

    – make this course open for enrollment

    – set this course as a “prerequisite course” for your actual course and set the actual course to accept only those students who completed prerequisite course.

    This way a student trying to enroll for a “real” course would be told that he/she needs to take a prerequisite course first and that prerequisite course would ask them to upload required document. Then you could asses that and if you mark it as passed it would open them access to the actual course.

    Kind regards,


Thank NAME, for their help.

Let NAME know exactly why they deserved these points.
