Certificate Builder

Certificate Builder Addon

Certificate builder addon allows you to create and design your own certificates which will be awarded to students after the course completion.

First, go to STM LMS > Addons and enable the Certificate builder addon.

Click on the Gear icon or follow the Certificate builder menu from your dashboard. The screen is divided into several sections: 1. Certificate: here will be displayed all the templates you will save, and the Create New template option. 2. General: these are the basic settings you need to build the certificate - specify the orientation, upload the background image, add elements (text, course name, student name, image). 3. Workspace: certificate area where the content is displayed.

To choose the orientation you need to select one of the options from the dropdown menu.

To add an element to the certificate just click on the Plus icon on the specific item or simply drag and drop the required element and place it wherever you want.

To add a background image click on Choose background and upload an image from your computer.

Please note for the proper display of the certificate, the background image must be 900x600 or 600x900 in portrait orientation.

When you are adding text content to your certificate you can use some editing tools, like changing the font, size, color, and alignment.

Once you added all the elements, organize the order, and save your template. Also, you can choose whether to apply the certificate to the whole website or just to a specific course category.

Select the option from the dropdown menu under the content area.

Elements - student name, course name, and instructor will be changed automatically to the relevant names depending on the student that certificate is awarded to.

Below is an example of the certificate:

Certificate checker

You can add a certificate checker to your website, so users will be able to verify the certificates.

Certificate checker is an element that can be added to the page via WPBakery Page Builder and Elementor, or as a shortcode.


Navigate to LMS Settings > Shortcodes and copy the certificate checker shortcode. Paste it to the page you want the certificate checker to be displayed on.

Page Builder

If you are using the WPBakery, you can use a special element. Edit the page you want to insert a certificate checker to, click Add element, and select the STM Certificate checker.

Enter the title.

For Elementor there is also an element for certificate checker. Edit the page with Elementor. Under the Elements tab search for the Certificate checker and drag the widget to the working space. In the Content settings, enter the title.

Users will need to use the code of a certificate in order to verify it.

Just paste the code into the field and click Check Code.
