Sticky post

Updated for 2024

If you’re asking yourself, “How do I create a free LMS website with WordPress?,” you’ve come to the right place. We’ve researched & tested out all 10 of the free WordPress LMS plugins on the market, including feature lists, free vs. pro comparisons, design, integrations, and more. Currently, I think 7 are worth considering, and the remaining 3 have more work to do.

It’s worth nothing, all of the free WordPress LMS plugins on this page are very limited in features. If you’re serious about building an online learning site, you should definitely consider paying for a WordPress LMS plugin. With the free versions of these plugins, you’ll likely hit roadblocks as you start to build out your courses.

The LearnDash Course Reviews add-on is included with your LearnDash subscription, so everyone who has purchased LearnDash has access to it at no additional cost.

Let’s dive into the new LearnDash Course Reviews add-on, explore its features, and find out if it’s the best option for your site.

Design Upgrade Pro for H5P Troubleshooting

Several customers have had issues with the styles from our Design Upgrade Pro for H5P plugin not appearing on the frontend of their site. Things looks good in the Customizer, but the styles don’t show up on the actual website. The cause of this issue is almost always due to the server configuration.

Because of the way the H5P WordPress plugin requires us to add styles to H5P content, we have to use a .php file to load CSS code. This is a bit unconventional. Typically, you’d use a .css file to load CSS code, and a .php file to load PHP code.

I’ll explain a few things you can try to resolve this issue. It usually involves contacting your host and asking them to make a pretty simple change.
