**January 2017 UPDATE**
Using LearnDash and Divi together requires that you activate custom post type support for Divi.
While there have been LearnDash customers who have reported success with the instructions below, Elegant Themes has since published instructions for enabling custom post type support.
Please follow the steps outlined by Elegant Themes and contact their support if you have additional questions.
One of the reasons why WordPress makes a fantastic platform for a learning management system is because it is flexible, has a ton of free and paid resources, and is one of the most supported open-source applications around.
In other words, you’ll never be short of assistance no matter what your project!
For LearnDash users, the biggest decision they often face is what theme to choose. There are literally thousands of potential options which is quite overwhelming.
Some themes are generic one-size-fits-all themes, some are tailored specifically for LearnDash, and others give you ultimate flexibility by including robust page builders.
One of the most popular is the Divi Theme by Elegant Themes.
This particular theme has been used to create thousands of websites. It’s the flagship product for Elegant Themes, a theme shop that has been around for eight years and has served almost 300,000 customers.
I think it’s safe to say that they are onto something.
Using Divi with LearnDash
One of the main draws for using Divi is that it comes with a page builder that makes it possible to create some pretty nice looking designs.
The only difficulty that people face when trying to use a theme like Divi is that often their page builder doesn’t apply to the custom post types of third-party plugins (such as LearnDash).
That’s the bad news.
The good news is you can implement some quick changes so that you can use them on LearnDash courses and lessons!
As with anything WordPress related there are often multiple ways to accomplish the same thing 🙂 . Below are two methods that LearnDash users have found useful for applying the Divi custom builder to LearnDash post types:
The best solution for you could depend on a variety of factors, including your site’s current plugin and code configuration. But for many, one of the options above has allowed for Divi and LearnDash to be used together for creating online courses.
