This is useful if you’re using a page builder like Elementor, Beaver Builder, Visual Composer, or any other page builder for WordPress. You just need to create a new page and edit it with your preferred page builder and paste this shortcode where you want to display the LearnPress courses.

3- Select the page’s basic information

You can use the Quick Settings panel to configure your new frontend page on the frontend. This panel will allow you to customize the frontend courses page by hiding any unnecessary elements and editing any texts.

You can start by selecting the page’s basic information:

  • Page title
  • URL slug
  • Page template
  • Navigation menu

4- Hide unnecessary elements and edit texts

You can hide any unnecessary elements and edit texts on this frontend page.

To hide any unnecessary element from the page, click on Hide element and then click on the element you want to hide.

To change any texts on this frontend page, you need to click on Edit texts, change any texts, and finally click on Stop editing texts.

5- Complete the page configuration and save changes

You can tick the Hide notices added by other plugins or themes to prevent admin notices from appearing on this frontend page.

You can also disable columns from the courses list. Just tick the columns you want to hide in the Disabled columns section.

Besides, you can limit the courses to have instructors see their own courses only. You can do this by ticking the The users should see the posts created by them only checkbox.

Finally, Save the changes.

6- Edit the “Add New Course” form

If you click the Add New button, you can open the new course form on the frontend.
