Need to verify if a user has earned a valid certificate?
Just add our shortcode to any page of your choosing. This shortcode when rendered on the front end of your site will display a search box. This will allow anyone to verify the authenticity of a certificates on your site. We’ve also made it possible for you to render a QR Code on your certificates.
The Certificate Verifier enables verification in two ways
By scanning the QR code found on the certificate or manually verifying by inserting the certificate ID in a search box. Regardless of which one of these modes is used to verify a certificate, the first step is to create a Wordpress page and give the page a unique name, perhaps call it “Verifier”.
Enter the following Certificate ID in the search box below.
If datetime_format is not specified the default format ‘Y-m-d’ ( yyyy-mm-dd ) will be used, e.g.: 2021-04-22.
You can specify different format, see example below. For more information on available datetime formats please refer to: Formatting Date and Time
Above example will output date in ( mm/dd/yyyy ) format e.g.: 04/22/2021
Please Note! You can restrict access to the search box
If admin wish to restrict access as to who can verify certificates, you can. There are multiple ways to do this. One way to restrict access is by using the “Restrict Content” plugin and wrapping our shortcode in it like this:
