Support » Plugin: Design Upgrade for LearnDash » Works with the limitations of Learndash

  • I am really impressed by the support speed and quality of this developer.

    This review covers both, the free and paid version.

    Installing the free version gives your site a better look out of the box. The free plugin does not have extra settings.

    Regarding the extra settings of the paid version:

    What could be better (but might or might not be in the power of the plugin developer to change)

    – calling the customize function redirects to my start page. There are no courses on my start page which make the process of customizing unintuitive and time-consuming

    I hoped to get around an (in my opinion seriously silly) problem of Learndash and remove prices from the course grid. The developer explained why this is a function only Learndash can change and shared CSS to remove enrolled/prices completely.

    It’s not ideal but great service from the developer to help with custom CSS.

    I wholeheartedly recommend this developer and plugin.

    Thanks a lot for the review, @lovesamla! We’re glad you’re pleased with the plugin & the support we offer 🙂.

    As for your feedback about the “Customize” link taking you to your homepage… I realize this is not ideal. Most people don’t have LearnDash elements on their homepage, so they’d have to click to another page before they started seeing their changes.

    While I do think there is technically a way to load a specific page, the challenge is which page do I choose to load?

    • Some people use the course grid add-on, and some don’t. And even if I wanted to load the course grid, the [ld_course_list] shortcode can be placed on any page, so how would my plugin know which page that is?
    • Same thing with the [ld_profile] shortcode. I don’t know which page each site would be using to display that info.
    • It’s also impossible for me to predict which LearnDash info you’d like to customize: profile, course content table, course grid, the buttons on a lesson page, etc. This is different for each user.

    On your user profile page in the WordPress admin area, if you have Show Toolbar when viewing site enabled, you can load the Customizer directly from whatever page you are viewing, and start customizing it right away. Just navigate to the page that contains LearnDash elements, than look in the black Toolbar at the top for the “Customize” link.

    Thanks again for the endorsement!

    Hi there,

    Thank you so much for your response. I agree. It makes sense that it’s not technically possible.

    I cannot navigate to lessons via the site-menu from the start page.

    Did I overlook that there is another way to open the customizer than calling the “customize” function of your theme?

    You seem to imply that. I have “show toolbar” enabled. But clicking on customize will redirect me to? Exactly.

    It will take you to the WordPress Customizer, the same place where you have been using our plugin all along. But when you click the “Customize” link in the toolbar from a specific page on your site, the Customizer loads with that page in the preview window.

    So instead of loading the Customizer on your start page, it will load the Customizer on a course page, lesson page, the page you have your [ld_profile] shortcode on, etc. It’s entirely up to you. Just navigate to that page on your front-end first, and then click “Customize.”
