Lesson Page Content

The lesson page content is where you have full control over adding whatever content you’d like to your lesson. If you’ve added topics or quizzes to your lesson, LearnDash will automatically add a list of associated content to the bottom of the lesson page.

The lesson page content you add here is your own custom information that will be displayed above any associated topics or quizzes.

Where to Add Lesson Page Content

  1. Navigate to LEARNDASH LMS > LESSONS
  2. Click on the lesson you’d like to edit -or- click the Add New button
  3. You will automatically land on the Lesson page tab
  4. You can immediately start adding your content

This article assumes you are using WordPress 5.0 or greater, which includes the new WordPress editing experience (aka: Gutenberg). If you’re using the Classic Editor plugin, your experience will be different.

If you’ve chosen to use a page builder plugin (Elementor, Beaver Builder, Divi, WPBakery, etc.) to edit your lesson content, you should refer to the page builder’s documentation on adding content.

Lesson Title

Your lesson title is the first thing you’ll see at the top of the editing screen. Look for a placeholder that says “Add Lesson title.”

Most themes display the lesson title near the top of the page, below your header and/or global navigation.

Lesson Content

Everything below the lesson title is a blank canvas for you to add your content. This is powered by the same WordPress editor used for pages, blog posts and other content types in WordPress.

Add text, insert images, embed videos or other multimedia content, link to PDFs or audio files… the possibilities are endless. You have full control over the type of learning experience you deliver to your users.

For more information on how to use the WordPress editor, please see the official WordPress Editor documentation.

The featured image is the main image associated with your lesson. Most WordPress themes will display this image near the top of your lesson page. It’s also the image we’ll display if you’re using the course grid add-on with the ld_lesson_list shortcode.

  1. Look for the Featured Image panel in the sidebar
  2. If it’s not already open, click on it to open it
  3. Click Set featured image
  4. Choose an image from your Media Library, or upload a new one
  5. Click the Select button at the bottom
