How to Change the LearnDash Focus Mode Header Height

I’ve had a few users ask if they can change the height of the header in LearnDash’s Focus Mode. The answer is yes, and this tutorial will provide the exact CSS you need to use.

LearnDash Focus Mode Edge-to-Edge Content for Page Builders

In our Design Upgrade Pro plugin, we offer the ability to set focus mode content to run from edge-to-edge. The left navigation bar will still be present, but the rest of the content area will span from the right edge of the navigation, right up to the right edge of the user’s browser.

This is great for those creating content with page builders. You can use your own spacing via the page builder elements/widgets, and build more creative layouts.

Our plugin only provides the option to do this globally, for every single piece of content in focus mode. This includes all lessons, topics & quizzes. But what if you want to only apply it to topics? Or only to quizzes? This tutorial will show you how.

How to Hide the Default LearnDash Lesson List on Course Pages

I’ve seen this question come up many times now, so I figured I’d post the solution online for all to see.

Are you using the LearnDash course grid to display your lessons in grid format? If you’re using the [ld_lesson_list] shortcode (or block) on your course page, and want to hide the default lesson list, here’s the solution.

How to Make the Entire Course Grid Element Clickable in LearnDash

In LearnDash’s course grid, only the featured image & “see more…” button are clickable by default. If you click on the course title, or the short description, nothing happens. Many people expect the course title to take them to the course page, so let’s see how we can make that happen.

Formatting Short Descriptions in the LearnDash Course Grid

For a lot of LearnDash users, the course grid add-on is an essential component to designing the learning experience. You can filter & sort the course grid in a myriad of ways. This article will focus on one of the key components of the course grid—the short description.

We’ll explore:

Some creative ideas include:

  • display course authors
  • indicate the total time it takes to complete a course
  • display the amount of credit (or CEUs) a student might receive for completing the course
  • how to add bold, italics & insert new lines

How to Remove Bullets from Elementor Icon Lists in LearnDash Focus Mode

Many of you who use LearnDash also use Elementor to build your lesson & topic pages. This article addresses a very specific design issue when using the Elementor Icon List widget.

Elementor icon list with LearnDash bullet points

In LearnDash Focus Mode, Elementor icon lists have bullet points next to them, and this is not the expected behavior. This is because LearnDash’s CSS overrides Elementor’s CSS for icon lists.

I’ll provide the CSS to remove the bullets that LearnDash adds and return your Elementor icon lists back to normal.

How to Prevent LearnDash Assets From Loading on Non-LearnDash Pages

By default, LearnDash loads all of its CSS files on every single page of your WordPress site. But many of your pages don’t include any LearnDash elements, and therefore don’t need this CSS.

This article will explore a few different ways to conditionally load LearnDash styles only on the pages that need it.

IMPORTANT
This is highly dependent on your specific setup, and may not work for everyone. Particularly, if you’re using shortcodes and/or Gutenberg blocks on non-LearnDash pages, the default code here will cause problems. You’ll need to customize it to also include those other pages where you’re using shortcodes, blocks or widgets in a sidebar.
