Setting Up WP Courses

There are two ways to setup WP Courses.

Method 1

After you’ve installed and activated WP Courses, you’ll create a custom menu link to your course archive template as well as a new page with the shortcode [wpc_profile] in it.  You’ll then create another menu link to your profile page.

  1. Go to “Appearance->Menus” and create a new custom link to mysite.com/course where “mysite.com” is your homepage URL.
  2. Click “Save Menu.”
  3. Create a new page called “my profile” or whatever else you’d like to call it.
  4. Include the shortcode [wpc_profile] in the profile page you just created.
  5. Go to “Appearance->Menus” and create a menu item which links to the profile page you just created.
  6. Click “Save Menu.”

Method 2

After you’ve installed and activated WP Courses, you’ll need to create two pages with specific shortcodes in them.  You’ll also want to add those pages to a menu so your users can easily navigate to these pages.

  1. Create a new page for your courses called “courses” or whatever else you’d like to call it.
  2. Include the shortcode [courses] in the course page you just created.
  3. Create a new page called “my profile” or whatever else you’d like to call it.
  4. Include the shortcode [wpc_profile] in the profile page you just created.
  5. Go to “Appearance->Menus” and create menu items which link to the pages you just created.
  6. Click “Save Menu.”
