I've been tasked with updating a training module by converting it to Wordpress. I've found a member-management plugin that will let people register on the site. But I also need to be able to track their completion of various content pieces within the site.
Anyone know how to do this easily and elegantly? I haven't found any plugins that will combine the to-do list functionality with the member management piece. I am tempted to just write some MySQL code myself, but I haven't done that within Wordpress before. I've never written any plugins either.
Update: It looks fairly easy to create a MySQL database alongside the WP ones. At this point, unless someone has the perfect plugins to recommend, I am ditching the idea of plugins and simply using the new DB to track the users and their training.
Elizabeth, so first of all I apologize, I didn't see this until now. My first thought on reading this was of a plugin called Sensei from WooThemes (http://www.woothemes.com/products/sensei/), although this is really kind of serious overkill for what you need. It's also very similar to the functionality campus gets from Moodle - have you considered managing this with Moodle instead of WordPress?
If you don't want to do that I would recommend looking into a custom content type. Again, maybe it's too late and you already have a separate database and everything but you should be able to create a custom content type with options that for the modules and users and who's done what - I imagine that would be much simpler than writing something form scratch.
