    I am configuring Lifter LMS on a site; people will be directed to the membership page to sign up. When they click SIGN UP – it takes them to http://mysite.com/my-courses?product-id=349 – with the login dialog first, then the registration info “below the fold” – so to speak. Unless they scroll, it’s not obvious they need to create the login name and pass and fill out billing info FIRST.

    I wrote a blurb:
    If you have already registered for the tutorial course, then login with your email address and password to begin or continue the tutorial.
    If you have not yet registered, create your account and provide your billing information on the bottom of the page. Once registered and paid, you will be given access to the tutorials.

    I put this on the my-courses page above the [lifterlms_my_account] shortcode, but the text shows up on my background, NOT within the content of the page. If I place it AFTER the shortcode, it shows up on the page at the bottom, under the registration form, which isn’t what I want or need.

    How do I get text to show up ON the page, above the login/registration forms? A paid membership automatically enrolls the user in the course (id=349). I’m trying to streamline, simplify, and make the sign up process as clear as I can to end users.

    Hey Sue,

    Our [lifterlms_my_account] shortcode intentionally takes over the content of the entire page because the page is extremely complicated and dynamic. It’s not entirely apparent and it *feels* like you should be able to just add some text above or below it but the content of the page includes many different conditions, functions, and pieces of information based on a number of different variables.

    For example, the content of the page differs based on whether or not the user is logged in. The shortcode also adds password reset functionality to an endpoint as well as the ability to edit your account information or redeem vouchers.

    So adding a paragraph of text actually doesn’t make sense when you consider all of this.

    That said, you very easily *can* add some text through the use of a PHP filter that you can add to your functions.php file.

    You can use the documentation and code snippet at https://lifterlms.readme.io/docs/filters-account#lifterlms_my_account_message to get you started.

    Hope that helps and let me know if you require additional assistance.

    OK–that gets me started. I will experiment with this; and may be using some of the other filters as well. This looks like what I was looking for, I just didn’t know where to find it!

    I will report back once I’ve had a chance to try this out. Thanks!!

    That did it, Thomas. And I have a feeling I’ll be using the other filters too, this works for me!!
