2 Ways to Manually Enroll Users into a LearnDash Course

There is no shortage of powerful form builder, membership & ecommerce plugins that automatically enroll users into your LearnDash courses. But many educators still like to enroll users manually.

There are 2 ways to manually enroll users in LearnDash. Let’s go over each one.

Explaining LearnDash Course Types: When & Why to Use Each One

LearnDash Course Price Type dropdown

There are 5 types of courses in LearnDash, and each one offers a different set of options. The names aren’t quite as intuitive as they could be. And if you’re using a third-party membership or ecommerce plugin (WooCommerce, MemberPress, etc.), things can get even more confusing.

How do you know which LearnDash course type to choose? We’ve got you covered.

Customize LearnDash Button Styles with CSS (Class/ID Names)

If you’re using LearnDash for your LMS, you probably know that there are buttons that perform all kinds of different functions. From navigation and payment to quiz actions, completing tasks & downloading certificates. Buttons galore!

By default, not every LearnDash button looks the same. When I built Design Upgrade for LearnDash, I went through every line of CSS to find every LearnDash button style, and I’ve compiled them all for you right here, in one convenient place.

If you’re looking to change any LearnDash button style, chances are you’ll find it here.

WordPress is designed to encourage discussion, and it does so by allowing comments on all types of content. This is the default behavior. In many cases, this makes sense for those who run a blog, discussion forum, etc. But for LearnDash courses, comments don’t make a whole lot of sense 🤔.

There are several ways to handle comments in WordPress, and I’ll cover all the ways to disable/hide the comment form on every type of LearnDash content, including course pages, lessons, topics, quizzes & essays.

Were you told that you need to insert the LearnDash course ID for one of your blocks or shortcodes to work properly? 🧐 Did it make you feel like a lost puppy in a haystack? I feel your pain. So, let’s alleviate it.

There are generally two ways to find the LearnDash course ID, both of which we’ll cover in this article.

The Complete List of LearnDash Shortcodes and How to Use Them

LearnDash comes pre-packaged with a ton of shortcodes you can use to display various information. Many LearnDash shortcodes also come with a handful of options to customize how and which information is displayed.

Here is your comprehensive list of all LearnDash shortcodes (including Uncanny Owl shortcodes), along with how to use them.

LearnDash Certificate Font Issues: Question Marks, Accents & How to Fix Them

Update: 26 Aug 2020
A LearnDash representative has posted a comment below with a better solution. This is what we now recommend.

Having trouble with certain unicode characters on your LearnDash certificates? Do you have students whose names contain letters with special accent marks? Or are you just seeing question marks on your certificates and have no idea why?

LearnDash allows you to offer certificates to your students after successful completion of quizzes and/or courses, but in rare cases, the student’s name might not appear correctly. The most common reason for this is the default font used for PDF generation doesn’t support certain special characters.
