LifterLMS Labs


LifterLMS Labs is a collection of experimental, conceptual, and possibly silly features which improve and enhance the functionality of the LifterLMS core.

We’ve created this free LifterLMS add-on in order to provide these optional features to the LifterLMS community which may or may not be useful to everyone.

Some labs will ultimately find their way into the LifterLMS Core, some may be a lab forever.

Current Labs

Action Manager

Quickly remove specific elements like course author, syllabus, and more without having to write any code. Documentation and more information.

Lifti: Divi Theme Compatibility

Enable LifterLMS compatibility with the Divi Theme and Page Builder. Documentation and more information.

Simple Branding

Customize the default colors of various LifterLMS elements. Documentation and more information.

Super Sidebars

Very quickly configure LifterLMS sidebars to work with your theme. Documentation and more information.


  1. Upload the plugin files to the /wp-content/plugins/plugin-name directory, or install the plugin through the WordPress plugins screen directly.
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ screen in WordPress
  3. Use the LifterLMS -> Labs screen to activate and configure the labs you wish to use


Why are these labs not included in the LifterLMS Core?

Because not every LifterLMS user needs (or wants) the features in this plugin.


Works perfectly with my page

Just tested the “Super Sidebars” widgets, works perfectly with x-theme, and all other things I have enabled.

So does the “Simple Branding”, previously I had a custom CSS for this, but now I don’t have to use that.
