Move the LearnDash Focus Mode Sidebar to the Right

We’ve previously showed you how to adjust the focus mode header height, and apply a background color to the focus mode header. In this article, we’ll continue customizing LearnDash’s focus mode by moving the navigation panel (aka: focus mode sidebar) from the left side of the screen to the right.

I’ll walk you through all the CSS and explain what each piece of code is doing, and then provide the full CSS to copy/paste at the bottom.

Use a Custom Background Color for your LearnDash Focus Mode Header

There are a few questions I routinely get about the LearnDash focus mode header. I’ve previously explained how to use a custom height for the focus mode header, as well as move the focus mode sidebar to the right. In this article, we’ll take a look at applying your own background color to the entire LearnDash focus mode header area.

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.

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 Programatically Number LearnDash Sections, Lessons & Topics with CSS

Justin from the LearnDash Facebook group asked if there was a way to automatically add numbers before each lesson using the BuddyBoss theme + platform. I was pretty confident the answer was yes, so I rolled up my sleeves and got to work.

Not only can we do this for BuddyBoss, but I’ll provide you with the CSS to do this for all themes using the LearnDash 3.0 template, as well as those using the Legacy template. I’ll even throw in some code to auto-number lessons & topics in the Uncanny LearnDash Toolkit Dashboard.

This is the perfect solution for those who want to display lesson/topic numbers in navigation & course lists, but not include the number in the actual lesson or topic title. This way, the numbers don’t show up at the top of each individual page. They only appear when viewing lists & navigational elements 👍.

It also works great for those who switch lessons & topics around or use them in multiple courses with shared course steps.

Build Custom Styles for LearnDash Quiz Questions

Have you ever wanted your answers displayed inline (next to each other) instead of stacked? How about using an actual blank line for fill-in-the-blank questions?

In this tutorial, I’ll explain how you can use custom CSS to design your quiz questions in various ways.

Create a Dark Mode for LearnDash Focus Mode

A few people have asked me if I could create a “dark mode” for LearnDash’s focus mode. The answer is yes, but it does come with a few caveats. Overall though, I was able to replicate the same colors in YouTube’s dark mode and apply them to the LearnDash Focus Mode experience.

If you’re interested in using a dark mode with LearnDash, I’ll provide you with the custom CSS below.

Customize the “Return to Course” Link in the LearnDash Navigation Widget

When you use the LearnDash course navigation widget, and navigate to a lesson, topic or quiz page, you’ll see a “Return to [Course]” link appear at the bottom. No surprise, this brings you back to the course page.

But what if you wanted to customize the “Return to [Course]” link?

  • 🚫 Hide the “Return to” part and just display the course title?
  • 👈 Add a back arrow before the course title?
  • 👆 Move the entire link to the top of the navigation?
  • Or just completely remove the link all together?!

You’ve come to the right place!
