Today we are pleased to let you know about an add-on that has been created to save you time and effort when setting up your online courses.
Truly, this really is the ultimate LearnDash toolkit!
Created by the Toronto based elearning firm Uncanny Owl, this toolkit was originally created for use on their internal LearnDash client sites.
Seeing the value it gave their clients they have graciously made it available to all LearnDash users.
For free! 🙂
Front End Login – Replace wp-login with a simple shortcode that you can drop onto any page to allow better branding of the login experience. User verification is also available to manage registrations.
Hide Admin Bar – Hide the WordPress admin bar for any roles that you want.
LearnDash Resume Button – Allow users to pick up where they left off in a LearnDash course by clicking a button.
LearnDash Groups in User Profiles – Easily identify LearnDash Group membership from user profile pages.
Login Redirect – Send learners to a custom dashboard or course after they sign in.
Menu Item Visibility – Control the visibility of menu entries based on whether or not the user is signed in.
Show LearnDash Certificates – Use a simple shortcode to display a list of all certificates (course and quiz) earned by the current user.
Show or Hide Content – Use shortcodes to show or hide content based on whether or not a user is signed in. Great for Open course types.
Log In/Log Out Links – Add Log In and Log Out links to menus, or to any page or widget with a shortcode.
LearnDash Breadcrumbs – Add breadcrumb links that support courses, lessons, topics and quizzes. Also supports woocommerce, custom post types with or without taxonomies & tags, pages and blog posts.
How It Works
After installing the toolkit, you will have a new settings screen where you can activate your desired functionality.
When you turn on a specific feature you can then configure the settings for that feature.
More information about how to use the Toolkit, including a 40-minute instructional screencast, is available on the Uncanny Owl website.
Where To Download
This free add-on was created by Uncanny Owl and is available for download on WordPress.org.
You can also add it to your site by going to PLUGINS > ADD NEW from your admin dashboard, and searching for “LearnDash Toolkit”.
