How To Create An Online Course Membership Website WIth WordPress Free 2016 – In 30 minutes or less


Back to another video I’m Adam from WP crafter.com
where make videos of for nontechies in this is a video of been wanting to make for a long
time convincing that a lot lately about different topics that I’m going after but this is what
I wanted to make for a long time and in this video under the show you how to create in
online course with your WordPress website and the best part is the cost is nothing it’s
zero everything that we can use in this video is going to be free to you and it’s so awesome
this platform to integrate into your WordPress site that I know that after I share with you
today urine to be excited as well now let me just preface one thing first there’s this
confusion that people have with what they need when they want to have a course or some
kind of a learning or training program on their website now traditionally you would
get something called a membership sites and you would use usually plug-in then you would
be protecting content people can pay for this content but that is a how things were probably
done maybe like four or five years ago the new way of doing things is with a special
plug-in you at WordPress that’s called a learning management system or an LMS now if you ask
me the acronym LMS is so dorky in geeky that the industry could do themselves a favor by
dropping it out but anyways that’s just my opinion so working to install was called an
LMS plug-in into WordPress and configure it in this video now the reason we use in our
MS plug-in is it’s going to make your life so much easier if you just have one course
and lots of lessons organizing them keeping everything in order maybe even having something
more complex like multiple courses with multiple lessons and stuff like that and you’re also
can be to add quizzes and things like that so the first part of this video is to be more
of a review I’m in a show you the plug-in and then the second part of this video I’m
a go ahead and install it into just a real preliminary configuration and I’m gonna leave
you with all the resources you need to take it even further obviously I’m not to be able
to configure every feature that this plug-in has in this video if you really want to know
something and multiple people are asking me I will make more videos on specific topics
with this plug-in so if you didn’t already know I have a series of videos called the
60 minute website challenge were I give you all the resources of predesigned template
that you can be online in 60 minutes or less all you would have to do is put your images
in your text in and I am showing you right now the next 60 minute website challenge and
it’s going to be a full website designed with this learning management system integrated
so I’ll just let me show you it real quick and if you really wanted this so there’s still
a work I want to do to it before I actually make an official video and make it available
but if you did want and I will make it available to you sooner and you could just work through
your own learning curve until my video comes out so this is how I design the site you come
here you got this imagery can easily be able to change the image and you scroll down a
little information on the side a little info about me and you see this elegant course grid
right here so frequently asked questions and your students will be old to come here and
say click on the course right here and then there to see this course outline right here
you’ll be of the put may be a welcome video or a sales video for this course here’s the
syllabus of the lessons right here and if I wasn’t logged in it would say take this
course in your review of the put the title here and some text here change this image
and this is going to be the course experience and when someone actually clicks into a lesson
let me show you how that works I designed this in such a way where you got this really
large it’s optional by the way this large place to put your training video and then
your could be some supporting information and then links to the next video or the previous
one and your students can market complete on the right there’s a sidebar here which
has her course progress and then right here is the syllabus and it’s nice and sickle all
these are collapsible so if you have a say 50 lessons in order to be broken down into
different modules it’s got a collapsible menu here in your easily be able to do that and
you can see this as a real clean design awesome looking click on courses there and see the
course in grid and tell you can also with this plug-in protect any content on your website
your website and you can even have course packages so and that when your students login
will be in my courses page in OC the courses there there rolled in and you can see I gotta
fix this here so when you hover it says view course but when you don’t it should say there
in a green lettering sets one thing I need to fix and it has a built-in shopping cart
as well so your students can check out so this is what’s actually can be released really
soon it’s good to be free don’t worry about it it’s built on a free theme and a free page
building plug-in called the Beaver Builder sluggishly was powering this is called lifter
elements it’s free and you can download it straight inside of WordPress order to do that
in a moment let’s look at their website really quick so actually when I just go and click
on the features area right there so this is everything that this free plug-in does not
want to give you one bit of information this plug-in wasn’t always free these the charge
for it but a few months back he decided to make it free and actually I was right about
the purchase it when they did make it free and I’ll explain you why they made it free
so it’s good to facilitate organizing your courses in delivering those it has full e-commerce
and has its own check out but it will also integrate with WooCommerce which is how I
personally use it on my own website this is probably one of the most powerful features
is engagement what that allows you to do is engage your students based on actions they
take so on enrollment we can send them a email when they complete a lesson or something like
that or there’s a certain period of time of inactivity meaning they haven’t logged in
not moving forward in the course it can also send an automatic email to them and that’s
I think one of the most powerful aspects of lifter LMS and it’s probably the main reason
why I have it on my own site and you can bundle these courses and you can pretty much protect
any content on your websites OC had a download page you can protect that as well with the
membership functionality so here’s some more stuff that is interesting right there in the
middle top it has given location where you can award badges based on people’s actions
that they take due to profiles you got analytics it’s very simple interface I really like that
customize content I think that’s were referring to all the widgets in some like their racial
due the course outline memberships of your s’more yet your content you can actually drip
feed the lessons that’s awesome coupons you can have coupons it is mobile responsive and
they also have something other than coupons is called vouchers so say you are a public
speaker and you’re giving a us a speech someplace and then afterwards you want to sell access
to your courses you could actually sell vouchers and they can take these voucher codes and
they can redeem whatever they purchased when they were off line with you and that’s about
pretty amazing as well and also you can issue certificates and there’s quizzes and all that
kind of stuff okay so that is all the features in lifter LMS now they do sell some things
and I just want to show you them real quick they’re all optional so if you want priority
support they do provide support but it might take a few hours or might take a day to get
an answer if you want priority support and if you want to support developers that are
doing awesome things they’ve got this available right here it’s only $99 per year for that
priority support so you’re using this for your business and your making money and it’s
crucial to you it’s nice to know you have an avenue to get real support and it’s an
option if you’re just starting out with your course you might not need this but then when
it starts getting traction he start making money it’s definitely a good idea to do that
they also have an extension to add stripe integration that’s Dir. credit card payments
on your website it already has PayPal integration or you can also integrated with WooCommerce
and use the free stripe add-on for WooCommerce hello launchpad this is a special theme that
they design that makes it easier to customize the look of the course grid in the courses
and all that kind of stuff and that’s a bit essentially just a WordPress theme and they
have integration with converted which is an email autoresponder service and mail chip
and if you don’t want to do any of this yourself you just want to pay someone to do it for
you you can contact them and they have these programs like I don’t know the cost them T-shirts
in the low four figures were though fully implemented for you okay so put a link as
well to this right here it’s the knowledge base so if there’s anything I’m not covering
in this video you can go to their knowledge base and they got documentation on just about
everything about this plug-in and you can come here in you can get your answer to whatever
question that you might have and I refer to the knowledge base from time to time for things
that I want to figure out how to do right here is my website and how I’m implementing
it you can see currently I have these five courses I have another four on the way and
you can see how I have my course grid here by default this is and how it looks I kind
of Tweet this bios a little bit as well as I did on that 60 minute website challenge
that I showed you that’s coming out each week the styles to give this nice hover affect
I changed the button styles and stuff like that if you have their theme though it’s a
little easier but it’s was really that hard to begin with I’ll let me actually show you
the inside of a course the on how I have it on my site so when someone clicks in our show
you how I have implemented to click your on the first lesson now I implemented its on
the 60 minute website challenge very similar to how I have it here on my website I did
this very large video because I like that design myself and then I got the text in a
got my videos in the course and the progress of this is how I have this implemented so
the first step to getting this all done would be to in stall WordPress hosting account and
install WordPress on that host account now I have a link below to the provider web hosting
provider that I recommend in motion hosting and you can also come to my website right
here click on recommended and it’s right here in motion hosting now when you click through
this link to in motion hosting a 38% discount and if you order hosting send me the receipt
number and I will give you access to all of the courses I have available on this site
you get access to them for free just you know if you purchase them all individually it would
be close to $1000 so it’s a awesome bonus that I’m throwing in if you at a hosting account
when we just walk you through that real quick here’s the in motion a hosting Peter you can
order a new hosting account they have these three plans and you can see we’ve got this
discount going here are some of the reasons why I prefer them over all the other web hosts
out there number one is just you know all my websites are on them so if you go to WP
crafter.com that website is on in motion hosting and so the all the hosting plans are to be
on solid-state drives which gives you speed you get this one click installer now other
hosting companies have one click installers but they also install a bunch of junk along
with it, like when you get a Windows computer and it’s got 30 programs you don’t want so
they kind of stinks they don’t do that here it’s very nice and they got excellent support
live chat you can call them they also have a ticketing system if you already have web
hosting account and you want to move to them they will do the transfer for you though transfer
your entire cPanel across in this is a long list of reasons why I like them and does so
anyways the other three plans of this plan right here he thinks supposed to websites
this plan here is the host six websites in this one years and limited it’s super easy
you just click on order now on any of the buttons then right here you would choose the
plan you want so say I just went with this Pro plan click on continue right here you
put your domain name in or you can order a new domain name so I’m just going to throw
any old name in when I go to continue continue and then you just fill this out popping your
credit card info and if you wanted you can click right here and they will install WordPress
for you and send you the login so that’s also a nice feature so anyways that’s emotion hosting
remember if you order them to send me the receipt number and I will give you access
to all the training courses on my site okay so this right here is a fresh default installation
of WordPress where I am going to set it up with this learning management system right
now so the first thing I like to do always when I set up a new site is I go to settings
and I go to permanent links and you always want to click on this post name permanent
link and then click on save changes next thing I like to do is go to plug-ins and delete
any plug-ins that might be there ask Matt and hello Dolly so minute delete those like
that the next for this this demo and use a free plug-in and use of free theme called
the generate press on the go to add new and I’m in a type it in here generate press it’s
right here and click on install now that 60 minute website challenge is based on the generate
press theme and the reason I like that it’s a free theme but there is a developer that
works tirelessly supporting this theme and there’s an upgrade path if you want some added
features some to activate that now usually I like to delete any themes I’m not using
the way you do that is you click on the theme and you click on delete and so let me just
do that request and delete now just you know when you go to my website to be the crafter
I have an entire beginner WordPress course that I put together that goes role these things
and there’s no registration required you can just go there and watch the videos so I went
to go here to plug-ins add new Ametek lifter LMS and him and hit enter and here it is right
there and these developers are tirelessly keeping this thing updated they just push
an update two days ago and I’ve been using it for maybe about four months and the regularly
improving it adding features and adjust improving the code so I go ahead and click on install
now now I have installed this fresh in a while so I might stumble little bit in this video
but will get it all sorted out so I’m in a go-ahead right here and say no thanks I know
what I’m doing so now we have installed it added these three different menu items here
lifter elements and this is kind of the admin section there’s the courses and this is where
you create your courses your lessons and you’re also going to create your quiz and quiz questions
and then memberships this is simple this is where you put your course bundles together
so let’s go to settings one of the things I love is the settings panel is so stinking
easy to go through and navigate there isn’t 8 million settings that you don’t know what
they do it’s actually very simple so this is good I like your dashboard you would see
how the people of enrolled new members only lessons of been completed this week in your
total cells it’s pretty cool in here shortcuts to purchase any of their extensions or add-ons
and click on courses now we need to assign a course page but when we activated lifter
LMS it added some new pages to this WordPress installation so when I go on this drop-down
it created a courses page right there and you can change some of the visual the visual
items with this if we look at right here this is my courses page on this 60 minute website
challenge you can just see how the grid is so that’s what were configuring right here
you can change what the button says to take this course or to order this course at the
same thing with the membership button if you are bundling courses together you also have
full control over the display of the course for instance the author the featured image
if you want to show different difficulty levels and stuff like that I personally have most
of this stuff disabled so they give you all the flexibility here to do what you want someone
to click on save changes same thing with membership someone to click on that and I’m can assign
a membership page and that’s can be memberships right here and then I want to go ahead and
click on save changes I’m a go to accounts and this is good to be the my courses page
and this is the page were your students revealed to go to and there to be up to see a list
of all of the courses that they have enrolled in and might be in the middle of a course
in the B of the jump right back into taking that course so my scroll down here and actually
let me add a couple things here this is some of the user registration options when someone’s
registering for an account way works is when you sell an account when you sell taxes to
a membership or course first users get a register in the to be taken to the shopping cart to
make their purchase and hear some of the options with that so we have the user registration
part enabled and there’s different things here right here you could treated terms and
condition page and force them to agree to that if you’re more of a business that wants
phone numbers you can just check this box here to add a phone number field to the user
registration click on check out and I got a sign that pages well and for check out they
recommend you choose this up purchase page but you can change the name and have it be
whatever he wants and you can choose your currency click on save changes in just you
know the point is fully translatable and they very have a couple translations out gateways
this is where you’re going to integrate this with PayPal so you would click on enable PayPal
and then you could just do a Google search or look at their docs on how to get your your
PayPal API username password and signature key and you would just be copying and pasting
those in engagements this is where you configure the email settings so when the system since
an automatic email out you’re going to be able decide what that email addresses can
be the name with it and stuff like that and I here’s the options there and integrations
this is where you can enable the WooCommerce integration so what that means is you would
use WooCommerce instead of a lifter alum mass when you’re selling a membership or your selling
a course now I personally using the WooCommerce integration on my website is I want to use
WooCommerce to sell other things as well and so that’s why I use the WooCommerce and integration
you can also enable buddy press if you’re not like in advance WordPress user I don’t
recommend doing that this would add a user community form or maybe if you’re going to
do that make sure you have a good support person that you can go to to help you along
the way it just add some more complicated stuff I actually have a better suggestion
then that if you need that that back-and-forth communication that form communication with
your students okay so there’s an analytics area here obviously have no data in here so
it makes no sense for me to go through that for students this is where you’ll see a list
of your students emails this is where you can customize emails that get sent out engagements
that’s what I was saying were we can create these engagements these automated email contacts
based upon the actions your students are taking it so you can create that achievements this
is that game of vacation that is talking about certificates you can issue certificates as
someone takes a quiz and passes reviews you can enable people to be about to leave a review
of your course orders is gonna be your list of orders that people have placed coupon self-explanatory
vouchers and system report if you need support you can give him the system report so I wanted
to just blast through the act is I want to create a course in a membership right now
so click on courses and I’m to click on add course and this is kind of the best thing
about using lifter elements is this this method or process for creating a corset and lessons
it could it couldn’t be any smoother or faster so I’m in a name the course of manages: my
first course that and click on create course there you already created your course now
all we need to do is create a list of lessons and or if you wanted to organize those lessons
into modules let me just explain this screen for you little bit so right here is really
cool you have these two description areas so right here you can put a sales video pricing
table or whatever and if you put something different right here what’s really cool about
it is if someone’s logged in or not logged in and hasn’t purchased the course they see
this if someone is logged in and they had purchased the course still see this and the
reason you want to do that is because if you use a sales video you don’t want to show someone
that sells video when they just want to see the course syllabus and jump into another
lesson I’ve been using this a lot on my site that we have these general settings right
here I haven’t really I mean you can play around them I don’t personally use them you
can specify a length of the course the difficulty level you can embed a video this was would
just be a video that is on the course right here I don’t use it for that then we have
restrictions here in this is if you want to specify when a start date or an end date of
the course also the capacity of the class and maybe a prerequisite meaning they had
to take a successfully take a prior course on the website now this is where you can spend
set up all the pricing so right here the first thing is the SKU now this is really only used
I think it with the WooCommerce integration so I integrated with WooCommerce I’ve got
to put a SKU number in here and put an identical SKU number in a product and WooCommerce in
that’s how it all knows what what goes where and how to integrate everything right here
for you would specify your price so let’s just make this a $47 like that and you can
also put a course on sale and have a sale price it puts a nice little badge on the banner
and now you can also specify date range for the sale and right actually have a re-price
if you wanted to do it like a reoccurring cost you can set that up and configure that
here and set up for maybe take $10 a month or something like that students is a school
this is where you can add students manually and remove students manually so I do this
so when you order the hosting with in motion you send me the receipt in your email I just
going here and I manually add you to the membership and so you can do the same thing this way
as well and the last abscess reviews is where you can enable or disable the ability for
people to leave reviews that have taken the course and that’s good as well so these are
just the course settings and you can only see how straightforward and simple to understand
all the settings are but if something confuses you use go to the knowledge base and find
out what the deal is there so now here’s where we build our course outline and that’s what
I love about this it’s got this visual course outline builder and it’s so easy to build
your course so right here would be the section that, like equivalent to a module and so it’s
a section 1 your first section so you can click on this click will hear and change the
name of that section so let’s call this getting started and say we want to have three different
lessons in this getting started sort already has this first one here so go ahead and click
on the click wheel and I went to change it right here see buying hosting and equity description
of your lesson or if you’re not to use descriptions delete that okay enough to click on update
Lessing so there it is so now this is what I love if you want to add something all you
have to do is click on add and it’s as you want to add a new section which is essentially
module a lesson or add an existing lesson so they had 10 courses you can take a lesson
from this course in that course and you can compile them into a new course and it’s pretty
nice so I’m going to click on add new lesson and then this pops up here and I’m going to
say install WordPress okay I’m not can have this right here not have description and it’s
saying select a a section to place this new lesson so I only have the one section right
now but if I had multiple sections it would give me the option of which one to put it
in click create lesson and let’s create another lesson see okay the third one would be to
install lifter elements Mike that’s in the click on create lesson and so let’s also create
another searching so want to show you something cool someone to call this
just called configuring everything soon I
can see about another section so say I decided this install lifter elements I think I want
to move that to section 2 check this out you just click on it and then you can just drag
it down and you can drop it and that’s why I love lifter LMS is you can easily just move
things around and adjust them and they just make it so easy to build out this course outline
so the way I create a course personally is I go in here and I create the course outline
and then I know what videos I need to create or content I need to produce I have this outline
and that is why I love I love L mess now these are some different options here for your drip
and the for adding content assigning a quiz in pre-work requisites to these different
lessons now here’s what you can do if you want to now put some information in this lesson
all you have to do is click edit contents and that will take you to the lesson page
where you can put some content in their so let me scroll down that’s pretty much all
there is to this I’m a click on publish and now many show you how to put info in the lesson
so here we are like messages click on edit content like that in his can open up the lesson
for buying hosting so what what happens is you get 10 courses in each course has 10 or
20 lessons that 200 lessons is a nightmare to to find the right lesson into to change
things and all that and that’s where most other LMS plug-ins fall short but that’s were
lifter LMS really shines it’s really easy to get to the right lesson that you might
want to edit or modify so must is easy just put your content right here and then hear
some different settings for the lessons for restrictions if you wanted to paste the YouTube
a link or a video link or if you had an embed code for your video you can just put it right
in here and it couldn’t be easier such as put lesson content like that alright someone
to go ahead and update this lesson so now we have installed M elements we’ve done a
preliminary configuration and we created a course and we created some sections and some
lessons so now to go in just create one more course but but I’m going to build a membership
with both courses click at a course my call this on my second course like that and then
click on create course and then I’m good to click on publish so now I’ve created two courses
so I click on courses we see these two courses now with the membership feature we can make
course bundled packages and we can also with the membership protect other content may be
a blog post you want to protect or a a page that might have a download link or maybe you
have a WooCommerce store and you want products that are just available to people that have
purchased the membership you can do all of that so going to memberships in creating a
membership is similar to creating a course minus the lessons and the sections some of
the call it my membership like this we have our same member groups we ever see membership
settings the same thing where you can do with the contents so let’s go to price single and
lives at a price of 197 and all the settings are to look the same except where it says
enrollment song to go ahead and click on enrollments right here in this is where we can choose
which courses are part of this membership summit click right here and I’m gonna make
the first course of the click right here in him and add the second course you can add
whatever courses you want and click this button that says add courses now when you do that
is when you save it in refresh the page so that’s why I’m getting this little warning
some click on leave page it’s just going to say that let me make sure my prices save I
see price single and there it is so now I go to enrollment you’ll see that this membership
includes the first course and the second course and you can choose if you want to automatically
enroll the met the members into these courses or not I don’t have that checked because what
happens is say you have 10 courses and nine you auto enroll people and 10 courses in the
other desk where they see all these 10 courses are to have someone go to my course grid my
course page and just choose what course they want to take I think it’s all a little cleaner
that way alright so I am going to click on publish so check this out say I wanted to
create a page that is protected so only people who own the membership can actually see that
page so I’m encoded pages and, to create a new page and on the call this download page
this and check us out when you scroll down you have this new box right here this is membership
access zero click on restrict this content and you multiple memberships that have been
configured different ways of yet 10 courses one membership can be three courses another
16 courses another one all the courses however you want to do that so right here to choose
the membership the scroll up and I’m click publish so now you have a page that you can
put your downloads and their completely secure in the only people who can access it or people
who have paid for this membership that you offer in case so let’s see now allow we can
go to the front and and see how things look now I didn’t add featured images and things
like that to make it visually look nice and I didn’t create a menu selection let me just
quickly create a menu for the theme to go to appearance menus and let’s just call this
the math menu that’s fine and click create menu I need to assign the menu to the primary
location I don’t want to this a sample page there and I don’t want that download page
there going to click save menu and let me create a homepage real quick you know there’s
no contents grading homepage and then I’m going to tell WordPress that that is my home
page by going to settings and then reading and I’m been a choose right here home page
and I don’t have a blog page set up click save so now let’s see what’s there I don’t
know what working to see hopefully looks perfect all right is pulling up so here’s my demo
here’s the homepage of the click on courses here’s our two courses and you can change
the style of these are for instance in my 60 minute website challenge I’m hiding this
I changed kind of the size of this I change the padding I change a lot of things you can
see how I made it look a little different and I’ll give you the code if you want to
have something similar to mine it’s fine it’s just modifying something called CSS so here’s
a course where we made the different lessons only click on view course and I didn’t really
put any content up here but here’s the course syllabus and you can see it’s right there
and your your visitors have the option to take the course or they can become a member
and to any course as part of the membership it’s going to give them these two options
here which is quite perfect so that you can always promote your membership so anyways
that’s that now we have this sidebar here it be nice if we had the course progress in
the course syllabus there that’s easy to do to go back into the back in go to appearance
and widgets and here’s the right sidebar someone to go ahead and just delete some of these
things actually I should delete these anyway but I forgot to mention that Lester elements
has its own lesson sidebar and course sidebar in the right here the lesson sidebar in the
course sidebar so I should be able to drag-and-drop a widget right here into the core sidebar
and it should show here so let’s see hopefully this works I will do a course progress just
call this progress and then I can drag this syllabus right there when we save and close
that you can name it whatever he wants and if you want to make a collapsible you can
do that by checking that box only have three lessons is pointless so if this works I should
be up to go here and click on a refresh in this should change on the right and it did
so now I’ve got this progress bar and I got my outline right here here’s my different
modules some of the video I’m in a log out and see what happens when we click on take
this course obviously you so I didn’t integrate PayPal or any kind of payment processor so
let me log out right now so now log out you can tell I don’t have the black admin part
the top I’m locked out in so I can click on take this course and this is where it takes
you and like I said the way check out works his first it prompts you to register or if
Yorty have a if you’re an existing student you can login and then you can check out so
someone would first come here and either log in or register and then after this it would
take them to make the payments and so you can see right now though when I just click
on my courses it prompts someone to login or to register and you can see when I click
on memberships we have that one membership that we created up I would input the information
in there you probably want to make this look kinda like a sales page and here is our course
outline so I wanted to do this as fast as possible this video make it as short as possible
but I think it came out a little bit long but I wanted to walk you through all of the
different options that you have in lifter elements you can install this on any WordPress

  1. which page builder allows you to put contact form inside image slider. Which plugin allows you to add object half way into the page builder

  2. I liked your Video.. i did everything good except the quiz questions not appear with me in the page
    would you help me please with this

  3. Hi, thanks for this useful video. I've followed the instructions here to create my own online course. However, I'm having a problem getting the courses to show up on the "Courses"' page. Instead, the courses that I create are displayed on the "My Courses" page. Can you let me know what I'm doing wrong?

  4. Great presentation. Thanks for sharing this with the world.
    I have 2 questions:
    1) Is the PayPal option membership available with the free download, or is it a add-on purchase
    2) Would you recommend this over MemberPress. It seems to me that this LMS is more inclusive and versatile.
    Thanks.

  5. The LIFTERLMS i have little bit different than yours. I have downloaded free versions and few options are mission such PRICE or REOCCURING PRICE options are mission. Can we still sell these courses even though I dont have price options or reoccuring price option and SKU numbers are not there?

  6. Amazing Video! Thank you very much.
    But is it possible that they disabled a Paypal checkout (for free) by updating from 2.7 to 3.0? And if, is there a way to get the 2.7 version?

  7. Awesome Video. Thanks a lot! I have installed lifterLMS instantly and I love it (especially the tutorials). I have a couple of questioens:

    1. I am using Thrive Themes (since a month) and I have seen, that you are using it too.

    There seem to be some incompatibilities. ("Your theme does not declare support for LifterLMS Sidebars"). I have seen the video to solve the problem but couldn't do it up to date.

    2. Is it posible to use Thrive Content Builder via lifteLMD?

    Thanks in advance and greetings from Germany,
    Michael

  8. Sorry, I really don't mean to ruin the vibe here, but you should remove FREE from the title. It wastes people time otherwise. I am not the kind of person that is on the look for freebies as I do know you get what you pay for, and I am a dev myself so I know the time spent behind a plugin like that. But still, I wouldn't dream to call one of my products FREE when they are in fact closer to $100. Oh well, thanks anyway!

  9. I tried installing lifter lms in thrive Rise theme i noticed that woocommerce extension for LifterLMS is now paid is there any different alternative ?

  10. waw! this is a very educating video. This is exactly what I have been looking for. I have been running a free educational website for a while but now I want to make it membership website. Thank you for the information. It has been six months since you uploaded this vid and I think you prepared the other complete video you ware promising if you did please give me the link. Thank you once again.

  11. This is exactly what I have been looking for. Clear step by step instructions on how to put togther a WP online course membership site, from a very likeable chap to boot.Thanks Adam… & Thumbed up too

  12. My LifterLMS Settings section doesn't have everything that is shown here. It only shows Settings, Reporting, System Reports.
    The Blue banner also only lists General, Catalogs, Accounts, Checkout, Engagements, Integrations.

  13. Hi, please can you give me a guide on how to create an alumni website? Thank you. I have watched your videos they are good.

  14. wow – thanks you SO much! This is wonderfully helpful. I set-up a course-based website a couple of years ago and it was an epic struggle, this plugin and your video is a godsend. Can't wait to install LifterLMS on my new website and follow your instructions.

  15. Hi, thanks for the video, but Generatepress is not compatible with lifterLMS. I have tries a couple of times to make sure.

  16. My thing is to be able to sell multiple courses with multiple lessons with the ability to combine other products like woocommerce. I like tshirts. woocommerce does this well and love the powerful coupon intergration. Is this possible with lifterlms?

  17. Thank you so much Adam, this is great! I've wasted so much money on people who have let me down so I'm very grateful for this. I'm doing my PhD. in leadership and plan to put my research into courses and make them available to try and help create more 'ethical' leaders :-). Thanks again, Craig

  18. Great video! Really thought I had found what I was looking for. Then I checked the LifterLMS website and realized that its pricing has probably changed since you made this tutorial. I wonder if that was a total bummer for you. Empathy my friend! The LifterLMS is still free, but then the lowest price is $99/year for Woocommerce and Paypal each. And if you want support and updates, then it's also $99/year. Somehow this way to price turns me off more than purchasing let's say WP Courseware which has plugins that are free. I still feel deeply grateful that you put all this effort in this amazing video. I was looking for the easiest way to set up online courses that can be purchased online, everything automated on WP. I don't have my answer yet, though I thought I did after watching your video, but I've learned a lot. Appreciations to you! I should also mention that if my budget was larger, I wouldn't mind at all paying for decent software. Soon!

  19. getting the error while trying to activate the lms plugin the error is { Fatal error: Can't use method return value in write context in /home/bnbit6cr/public_html/ilearn.gdn/wp-content/plugins/lifterlms/includes/models/model.llms.course.php on line 424}

  20. Awesome video but I am confused, I already have a Woo commerce plugin on my site, do I still have to purchase the Lifter LMS Woo Commerce extension in order for me to accept payment for my courses? Or is their another way I can accept payment without paying for the extension. Thanks in advance

  21. I am still a little lost, I don't have a payment gateway tab, I have a PayPal account so I don't understand why I would pay for an extension, unless this is the only way that I can except payments through this plugin.

  22. Is it possible to make it something like italki dot com website where teachers who want to teach something can offer their services, and students can hire them through money (but a point based system on the website). I don't know if you are aware of italki website but if you could please check it out to get an idea I would really appreciate it. Thank You

  23. Great Tutorial on LifterLMS – thank you! You mentioned a theme or template you were creating for a courses website. Is it for available on your site? Many thanks!

  24. Hello Adam, thanks for the great work. i tried to install the entire template downloaded from the dfy resources on your website but it gave error: css stylesheet missing…can you please help?

  25. I uploaded LifterLMS plugin on my website. I noticed they no longer have the "Gateway" option in the settings. I uploaded woocommerce plugin for free and planned to integrate them. I also noticed they sell woocommerce for a fee. Does this mean I cannot connect to the LifterLMS plugin? My second question is that my theme does not support LifterLMS sidebars. My plugin notes say: The current theme does not declare support for LifterLMS Sidebars. Course and Lesson sidebars may not work as expected. Please see our integration guide or check out our LaunchPad theme which is designed specifically for use with LifterLMS.

    I'm not interested in changing my theme. Do you have any suggestions or other recommendations for course plugins in WP? Thank you!

  26. LMS does not work in my theme. My theme is sydney. I would like to add a page that offers online courses.What should I do?

  27. Hi, great video thanks, was looking at ClickFunells but this may be better. What do you recommend other than buddy press as we want to incorporate a forum, not a fan of buddy press anyway? Thanks

  28. Which LMS plugin provides the details Students Dash Board (specially that shows the Marks Scored in each Test or Quiz by the student in the students profile or Dashboard) & also provides Detailed Backhand analytics of each & Every Student… Logins histroy courses joined courses completed tests given & test Completed,, Strength & weakness of each Student and his area of Interest. & have the ability to show the different offers to Different students based on activity level of the student.

  29. I just saw they REMOVED the gateway tab and the Paypal extension became a PAID add-on. 99 dollars a month, and you STARTED this video by saying everything was meant to be free. You got 1 hour of my life wasted. Thank you.

  30. Many thanks for this video. I've been struggling with a theme and LMS which are well beyond my current experience and abilities. This made the process so much more straightforward. I wish I'd seen it before purchasing all the other bits and pieces.

  31. I am not able to use Paypal without paying for an add-on. How are we able to get this included as indicated in the video?

  32. Thanks for all the information! Very helpful. I was about to purchase hosting with your discount through inMotion but after talking with them they discouraged me from buying their pro plan as they said that it wouldn't be good to host a LMS with a lot of video content if I were goin g to embed my video. They suggested that I would need one if their more expensive VPS packages. I'm sure you won't be able to respond before your discount expire but I wanted to get your perspective before making a purchase. Thanks!

  33. Thanks for the great video!
    Does the LMS block the user from clicking the YouTube icon in the video that takes the user to YouTube instead of watching it on the site?
    Does it have any safeguards for that?
    As I'm making a course site but strictly need the users to stay on the site and never watch them on YouTube.

  34. while installing lifter LMS with generate press shows 'may be lifter LMS sidebar not work' what it means and why?

  35. Adam…I am using a Hero Theme in WordPress.  I added LifterLMS to my site.  Unfortunately my LifterLMS did not mirror your demo.  I added the lab thinking that this would help but to no avail.  Also, when I add a course and attempt to add lessons to it they do not show up as an outline as you showed in your video.  This there something else I need to do?

  36. hi, thanks for your preciosu content, please, I would like to know if exists a way for delivering content everyday with a daily payment? a sort of follow up which is meant to be paid every day for having it

  37. And if you need support at In Motion Hosting, you talk with a polite person who can help a "non techie". They have been both helpful and kind to this older user.

  38. Hi. Great video – just what I was looking for! would it be possible to build a course and then deploy it to a private server? I want to sell my course.

  39. Any update on the LMS for 2017? is quite different now than on your video

  40. awesome video, thanks a lot! you mentioned a "better forum solution" than BBpress, but I haven't found any more information in this video, what did you have in mind?

  41. Even though you did this one year ago it has helped us tremendously. We were going to use Courspress because it seemed to have more graphics on the course grid, however, the simplicity and "flowcharting" inside the WP LifterLMS has a great appeal. You did really well with the video, fast pace, easy to follow, get the strcyture right then fill in the details. We thought it was excellent. Thanks

  42. Hi, you said, "I don't recommend buddyPress, I actually recommend something similar". What is that similar something? Thanks.

  43. Hey Adam. I love you videos. I just want to know. Do you have any videos on Toolset? It's a plugin I've been wanting to learn more about but I can't find any videos or sites that make it simple to understand.

  44. Very informative! I think you were born to be a Tutor – you are so patient. Thank you so much. I have learnt so much from you. May the Lord keep you and make his face to shine upon you.

  45. Hi! I just want to ask if you can use LifterLMS with Thrive Architect? If not, does anyone know what membership plugin we can use with Thrive Themes? Thanks.

  46. You said in this video that you don't recommend that we use BuddyPress if we want to add some sort of community around LifterLMS where people can share/like courses and that you have a better solution for that. Mind telling us what do you recommend instead?

  47. Hello, i need a wordpress theme to sell videos and motion graphics online, so the client have the option to upload his own photos or videos and text to customize the motion graphics and 3d animation, what kind of wordpress theme would you suggest for me to buy that meets such requirements ?

  48. What if you just wanted to create a page section in your website for only members of a club. I already have a website built with the astra theme, just want to add a member’s area. Should I install this and add a member’s page to my astra site?

  49. WordPress says I have to upgrade to business ($25/mo) to install plugins like the one you recommend here. Any workaround? Does this mean all plugins?

  50. Good video. I have a question. Are there any plugins that give quiz points and later student can redeem to buy the next course?

  51. Your tutorial on this was very much detailed and easy to follow but the latest version of lifterlms does not support generatepress. Launchpad is recommended instead and I don't know how to add or show login and sign up page.. Please I will appreciate if you can help me look into it.

  52. Lifter is definitely NOT FREE. In fact, it is very expensive compared to other options. Basic cost is 100 – 1000 dollars. The addons make it so much more expensive than things like memberpress. More than $2000.00 for all the addons. Just the main payment gateways alone are $300.

  53. Great videos. How do you create this video with screen share and a talking head? Thanks and please keep up the great work. Barry
