Options for Certificates (menu item Certificates > Options for Certificates)
The most important aspect on the Options for Certificates page are the Shortcode Options. Each shortcode has a description and example. The purpose of the shortcodes is to allow you the ability to customize your certificates with information like quiz scores, date the certificate was earned, the user’s name, etc.
The Sort by, Sort Direction, and Posts Per Page fields have no impact on how certificates are displayed. These fields were included for previous versions of FranchiZeTrainer and will likely be phased out in a future release.
