  • Resolved Sam


    Hi there.

    I’d like to customize my certificates. When I’m uploading my A4-page background to LifterLMS, it is way too big, not CSS-able, looking like a normal webpage and not user friendly. What I need:

    1. A custom A4, downloadable PDF certificate, with the first- and last-name on the certificate, as well as the date, signature and a little bit of custom styling (padding + background-color behind the user’s first- and last name for example).
    2. Something similar to your competitor Sensei (
    3. A solution to do this

    Download Certificate right after completing a Course.
    I’m aware of how to make an engagement/achievement/certificate, but how am I able to direct download (not print) a certificate after completing a course?

    I hope to hear from you as soon as possible.

    Thanks in advance.

    PS: The LifterLMS plug-in is a good LMS Plugin to use, except for this and the Quizes (for example a really easy feedback form, or a true-false question or something isn’t included). But thanks for developing this!

    Hey @snowboardermike,

    I have an enormous backlog. I really wish we had built quizzes differently day one but our architecture was built in a way that is making it really difficult for me to rapidly improve our quiz functionality. I appreciate your feedback. We have big plans for quizzes and if you remain patient I promise you’ll be pleased with our improvements when they’re available.

    As for the certificates you can customize all of this by using some CSS as well as all of our existing merge code functionality.

    I’m not sure what you mean by “not css-able”

    You can customize the size of your certificate really easily by uploading the certificate background and setting the default size to whatever is appropriate for your needs:

    We don’t have a 1-click download button but you can print any file as a PDF via system print dialogues and click “Save as PDF” if you’d like to save your PDFs.

    You have identified two areas of our plugin which need improvement. We’re not perfect. We release new features as quickly as we can and are always trying to get better. That said, if you like the feature set of Sensei better I’d seriously recommend Sensei! I don’t mean to sound rude but I realize that we can’t solve all the problems all the time.

    Hope that helps,
