Topic Page Content

The topic page content is where you have full control over adding whatever content you’d like to your topic. If you’ve added a quiz to your topic, LearnDash will automatically list it at the bottom of the topic page.

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

Where to Add Topic Page Content

  1. Navigate to LEARNDASH LMS > TOPICS
  2. Click on the topic you’d like to edit -or- Click the Add New button
  3. You will automatically land on the Topic 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 topic content, you should refer to the page builder’s documentation on adding content.

Topic Title

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

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

Topic Content

Everything below the topic 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 topic. Most WordPress themes will display this image near the top of your topic page. It’s also the image we’ll display if you’re using the course grid add-on with the ld_topic_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
