Frequently Asked Questions for Edwiser Bridge

Reviews

Best plugin for Moodle WP Sync. Excellent Support.

We are using Edwiser Bridge plugin for one of our clients. The plugin works really fine for One sign in & Moodle WP courses synchronization. The Single sing on is working without any trouble, where students can login in WP or Moodle using one login credentials, and course sync system is so easy and works well for us.

Initially, we had some connection issues, Rajiv and team from WisdmLabs helped us a lot to resolve all kind of queries. Really awesome support, we appreciate their patience and continues support.

Great plugin and superb support

The plugin works out of the box, after following a short installation tutorial everyone should be able to integrate Moodle with their e-commerce website.

Received great support after the major 3.0 Woocommerce update which caused some incompatibility at first — Within 2 days they came with a patch and an update will follow soon!

Amazing plugin with even better support!

It becomes better and better…

We are using Edwiser Bridge (with Single Sign On and Selective Sychronization, but without WooCommerce) since the end of 2015. In the beginning it seems to be a Beta Version and we had some problems. We got a great support from Rajiv Sathian from WisdmLabs. (Thanks for that, Rajiv! 🙂 ) From update to update it became better then. At the end it works perfectly for us.

Going round in circles on support

Use in a production environment with caution! This is a great product with some really good ideas. Potentially very useful but I have found some very worrying bugs that I have been trying to get sorted out for three weeks. One of which is erroneously ending out expiry emails to my whole user base who have nothing to do with Moodle. My questions do not get answered, I just get reassurances. I have had to set up a whole staging site just for the support people to debug on. It simply does not work out of the box for me.

Attention Beware Doesnt Grant Refund When you buy

So I downloaded the plugin for my website because the client used Moodle and wanted to connect WordPress with Moodle, the plugin seemed to synch smoothly in the beginning. Then we needed a few more extensions to complete the process and I purchased them and we had complications setting up the plugin, got support to help but the websites were not able to do what was described. We wrote back to the developer and support for the money and they have not responded to us. Had to escalate the situation to Paypal (where the transaction took pace). I would NEVER do business with these guys, plugin didnt work and they stole my money

It works flawlessly, a great plugin

This is a great plugin by itself, but it really shows its full potential when paired to its paid-for extensions: WooCommerce Integration, Single Sign-On and Selective Synchronization. With them we managed to link our Moodle e-learning platform with our WooCommerce-based online shop and began selling courses and training. It took just a few hours of one man work to put it all together and running, the only slightly tricky part was related to the management of complex user passwords in Moodle and WordPress, but got everything solved by carefully reading the documentation and getting a bit of help from their tech support. These add-ons paid by themselves in almost no time.
