What Makes This Course Website So Great?

Find out what is powering this amazing template

GENERATE PRESS

When choosing the best free WordPress theme, I always go to GP. It's lightweight, rock solid, and currently has over 700k downloads.

The homepage was built using the most popular front end page builder, Elementor. It makes building gorgeous page layout, easy.

LIFTER LMS

Currently the most advanced and feature rich learning management system for WordPress, and it's what I personally use. 

Can I translate the site into my language?

Yes you can! When you set your language in WordPress from English to your native language, if there is an available translation in your language it will automatically switch to your language. Soon I will release a video on how to manually translate the template. 

I already have hosting, can I still use this template?

While I strongly urge you to use InMotion Hosting, if you already have hosting you can still use this template. If you begin to have problems because of a budget web host you are using, then I really won't be able to assist you though. 

This all seems too good to be true. How come it's free?

Well for starters, I have spent over 300 hours putting all this together for you, and have spent my own money on the finishing touches, but yes it is free. To thank me I appreciate if you would use my recommended page to purchase themes and plugins, also please share this page on your social groups. 

Can I use X payment processor to take payments?

If you watch the video on ecommerce, you will see how to integrate WooCommerce with LifterLMS. WooCommerce is integrated with just about every payment processor under the sun.

Do you have a question?

If you have a question that is not answered here, feel free to live that me and I will be more then happy to answer it. Commonly asked questions will be added here from time to time to make things easier for everyone.

  1. Hi Adam:

    Awesome as usual.

    Only 2 questions: 1- Best autoresponder? 2- Best private video hosting?

    Thanks!

    1. Adam @ WPCrafter

      Hey Nicholas, best is subjective unfortunate. For example I personally use Mautic, which is a self hosted marketing automation platform. I love it, its free, its powerful, but some people would prefer not self hosting, so in those cases ConvertKit is the way to go. Video is the same dilemma. I use VooPlayer, but for many Vimeo is just easier.

      1. Hi Adam,
        I compared the price of using self hosted Mautic vs the commercial competition. The cost is not free. The cost of Mautic – if you use Amazon for email services – is about half the cost of email marketing services such as MailChimp. It is a good bargain. The primary problem I have with it is the lack of documentation and glitches since it is not as well known or widely used as the commercial services by regular people. Your videos for Mautic are a great help.

        Romeo

        1. Adam @ WPCrafter

          Actually I would like to challenge your math here. To calculate the true cost depends on how many emails you will send. So with a traditional email service you pay per month regardless of if you send any emails, your pain based on how many contacts you have. With Mautic you don’t pay for anything except you do need a way to send the emails and if you’re going to send a large quantity of emails it’s best to use a transactional email service. So for example you can use SparkPost to send up to 100,000 emails per month free. If you choose to use Amazon SES it will cost you $0.10 per 1000 emails you send. Now also keep in mind that Mautic is a marketing automation platform, it is more equivalent to Drip. Now go take a look at Drips pricing to put things in more perspective.

  2. Nicolas Osorio

    Thanks Adam!
    Let me see if I understood correctly your answer. Do you have Mautic hosted in InmotionHosting.com and you don´t have any problems for send emails from there? and You use Vooplayer as video hosting and also as a video player?

    1. Adam @ WPCrafter

      Hey Nicholas, yes that is correct. Now regarding Mautic, I do have videos on my other YouTube channel on how to install it however they are a little outdated. I’m currently working on creating an entire video playlists identical to the quality of the playlist for my course creators, but realistically that won’t be available until next week. In the video training for it I will be using InMotion hosting and setting up outbound email sending via the email account that you create on your hosting account and Amazon SES. The better method being Amazon SES.

      And yes that is what I use for my video playing. VooPlayer does provide some video hosting storage capacity but is limited to 5 GB. That being said most video courses if properly optimized, don’t really take up that much space at all so I guess it would be adequate.

  3. Dear Adam tell me is it possible from You to archive data from the very first lesson online course for 2016, which You had used for 60 minutes

    1. Adam @ WPCrafter

      I want everyone to use the new 2017 version and not the 2016 version. There is no benefit really to using the 2016 version. What is the reason you wanted the 2016 version over this new one?

  4. Hi Adam,

    Thanks for the the great video tutorials.
    When will you make the resource files for the latest online-course builder available?
    Looking forward to building my own course platform.

    Regards
    Navi

    1. Adam @ WPCrafter

      The download button is right here on this page, did you not see it at the top right underneath the videos?

      1. Actually I did download ( twice) but for some reason the resource folders were empty – so I figured the files were no longer available!
        I have done a download now and everything’s there.
        Will check it out over the weekend.
        Once again – thanks a million & keep up the great work Adam.

        Regards
        Navi

      2. Hi Adam,

        I was able to download the resources – but there is no All-inOne-WP template file that I can import.
        The files that did download are the child theme, LifterLMS Stripe extension, GeneratePress Child themes, some images & Elementor Page Templates.
        There’s no sample courses etc.
        I’ve tried the download several times now – from both the 2016 & 2017 Course builder resources & get the same results.
        Would appreciate it if you could email me the required resource file.

        Regards
        Navi

        1. Adam @ WPCrafter

          That is the way the 2016 version worked. The 2017 version is entirely different. If you watch the videos in the video series you would see that.

  5. Hi Adam,
    Amazing video tutorial.I am also building an online course website but i don’t want the user to be redirected to the purchase page. My course is free for all.If you can suggest me the workaround that after login the user is directed straight towards the course.
    Thanks and Regards
    Rishi Verma

    1. Adam @ WPCrafter

      So you don’t even want to have them register for a course? You don’t have to charge for your courses, but it’s perfectly acceptable to have someone enroll in the course. Also you can mark individual lessons as free, so in this case you can mark them all is free if you want them to bypass the enrollment into the course.

    1. Adam @ WPCrafter

      There is no need for that. All you have to do is head over to the generate press website user forums and do a quick search, and you get the instructions on how to change it via function. Also if you go to generate presses website and look at their documents you will find instructions there as well.

  6. The download resources button is not working. Not able to download anything. Any other method to download the files

    1. Adam @ WPCrafter

      You are the third person to tell me that, so there must be a problem. I will email you personally.

    2. Adam @ WPCrafter

      Actually I think I just found the problem, you downloaded this already in an email was sent to you on February 21. My system has measures in place to not email someone the singing thing twice. You still have access to that email so that you can click on the download link in it?

  7. Hi Adam, I already have hosting with one of those “other” not-so-great companies. I want to switch to InMotion after the first of the month. Is it difficult to transfer my domain over? Anything I need to know ahead of time? Thank you.

    1. Adam @ WPCrafter

      Well I assume your domain name will stay with the existing host until it is about to expire, then you can transfer it out. So what I usually do for folks, is make the necessary changes to point the domain to InMotion Hosting, to make the process easier on you.

      1. Thank you for replying. I have my domain name through GoDaddy, and my hosting through HostGator on a month to month basis. Since I paid for a year of my domain name, I think I can transfer hosts anytime, but I’m not sure. Maybe just have to change CPanel settings. This is all kind of new to me. Also, if you haven’t already recommended it before in your videos…one thing that I learned really quick! When a person buys a domain name, DEFINITELY pay the few extra dollars to keep your contact information “private”! OMG, I had probably 7 solicitation calls a day after I bought my domain and many were (I don’t know the right term) “phishing”? attempts…pretending to be FROM my host trying to get my credit card info. :/ One big giveaway is that they had thick Indian (?) accents.

        1. Adam @ WPCrafter

          Yes so in this situation it would be really easy to sign up for a new web hosting account with InMotion hosting and then point the domain name that you have added Go Daddy to InMotion. I can help you with that is needed. Now what you can also do is create a cPanel backup on Hostgator and then upload that to your new InMotion hosting account. Then what you would do is submit a support ticket asking them to restore that. I do have a video on making the backup and uploading it to InMotion.

          1. Please I need that Video on how to go about the back and and upload to In motion. Again, when you move your domain from one host company to another, do you still need to be paying for annual subscription to the former?

  8. When I try to install the theme provided from the resources here I get an error message stating, “The package could not be installed. The theme is missing the style.css stylesheet.

    Theme install failed.”

    Any solution?

    1. Adam @ WPCrafter

      They are on the way. Much of it is self explanatory, but I am going to go into everything in detail. Many of the videos are recorded, just need time to edit and upload. I just need a few days.

  9. I went through a created a home page along with your video. It was very informative and helpful. I feel like I have learned a great deal and am so grateful for your tutorial. I still feel like I like and prefer your other home page design (the masculine one) for my purposes anyway. Is there a way to import that page and then customize it to my needs? I’ve completed most of the course, but would like to change to the other design. Thanks so much for your help.

    1. Adam @ WPCrafter

      Yes I would suggest that you re-download the resources file because I made a couple edits to the other two homepage styles. Also some people were having some problems importing them. So go ahead and re-download that and then import the homepage that you want. Then you can begin editing it to make it look exactly how you want it to.

  10. Hi Adam, Great Tutorials. I am setting up my course website and I am super excited with these tutorials. Thanks for everything you do. One Problem though, I am not getting the same lesson layout as you shown in the introduction video. I am not able to embed video in the dark background as you shown. I know somewhere I am missing. I went back and forth in the tutorials but I can’t find the solution. Can you help?

    1. Adam @ WPCrafter

      Did you install the child theme from the resources package? If so there is a page header feature where you would put your embed code and choose the color of the background. I haven’t made a video on that yet but it should go up this week.

  11. Adam im getting this message when installing theme:Installing the theme…

    The package could not be installed. The theme is missing the style.css stylesheet.

    Theme install failed.

    1. Adam @ WPCrafter

      You have to first make sure you have installed the parents theme as demonstrated in the video.

  12. Hi Adam,
    I’m stepping out from the internet shadows! I’m in! Your tutorials are mesmerizing. Awesome content. Thank you.

    1. Adam @ WPCrafter

      I tell you, I had to do the same thing. Step out from the Internet shadows myself. Here I am three years later and I’m so happy that I did that and this is exactly what I want for you and for everyone else. To take what you have a new and share it on the Internet with other people. Good for you! Let me know if there’s any help I can provide.

  13. Hi Adam,

    A bit off topic, but what plugin do you use to create the pop up login form for this website? It looks great.

    And for membership sites, it would be great if you could do a tutorial or indicate how you add the member’s avatar to the top menu.

    Thanks.

    Romeo

    1. Adam @ WPCrafter

      Actually I think that is on-topic because on this video series we are creating websites that people will log into. Now here is the bad news, it’s something custom to the WordPress theme that I am using. If you want to see the being that I’m using, it’s called newspaper and I have a link in the footer of my website for you to see it.

  14. ? for you! do you know for sure if vooplayer videos can be inserted using the thrive themes responsive video element in their content builder?? (they have auto options for vimeo and youtube and say you can also use self-hosted videos, but i wasnt sure if this would fall into that category) thanks!

    1. Adam @ WPCrafter

      I think they have an embed or in HTML option. That would be the better one to choose whenever you need to embed some content.

  15. Surbhi Bhardwaj

    Great and soo much informational…just exactly what I am searching for,,, 🙂
    all I want is help right now as whenever I click on to DOWNLOAD RESOURCE button it redirects me to this same page again….no pop-up arise in which I can fill my email details!!!
    please resolve my problem

    Rest I am excited to go through all the video to learn more:))

    1. Surbhi Bhardwaj

      just resolved it by deleting my cookies…sorry for the trouble…thanks for such awesome stuff

  16. Hi Adam,
    I tried to download the resources but it keeps taking me back to the home page, how do I fix this?
    Secondly, I would like to use my domain name with one of the hosting companies you didn’t recommend, what then should I do?
    Thanks.

    1. Adam @ WPCrafter

      It shouldn’t be taking you to the homepage at all. I would suggest trying in a different web browser.

      You can use a different host, but many will be problematic.

  17. Virginia Richardson

    Hi Adam, thanks so much for your great content. After watching and working alongside your 2017 training course, I know we are finally headed in the right direction. I’ve purchased tons of themes and other resources that simply did not have the capacity to do what we needed. Starting from the ground up with your program is the way to go. Thanks so much for helping us take major leaps toward our vision!

    1. Adam @ WPCrafter

      Thank you so much Virginia for saying that. I agree, and am 100% behind you and here to help you.

  18. Hello Adam, I have a couple of questions:
    1. Which video explains how to back up domain from a host company and then restore it to Inmotion?
    2. The child’s theme don’t show the template option where I can select full width, what could be wrong?
    3. When I point or move my domain from it’s current host company to Inmotion, will I be paying for for the annual subscription with the former?

    1. Adam @ WPCrafter

      Hey, let me try to help you:
      1. Here is that link
      2. That is when you install and activate a plugin named full width page templates. It’s covered in the plugin video.
      3. No, if you are no longer using their hosting you are only paying for the domain name, which can be $15 per year or so depending on what they charge.

  19. Gloria Brooks

    I’ve been excitedly waiting for this series. Currently, I’ve been building my courses on Weebly, which works, but, I want to see if I can handle learning and maintaining a course website on my own. It’s daunting as a newby, but, I want to put forth the effort. I sell online science and math courses to homeschoolers.

    1. Gloria Brooks

      I meant to say, I want to see if I can maintain a WORDPRESS course website on my own, just to clarify. I hear it’s can be a real challenge to maintain one as a one person band.

      1. Adam @ WPCrafter

        I find that WordPress requires very little maintenance. Of course like any platform if someone leaves you a comment your going to want to respond to that and have to do bits of customer service here there, but I’m sure you’re already doing this.

    2. Adam @ WPCrafter

      Happy to have you in Gloria! I know you can do this all by yourself, well with the help of my videos of course.

  20. Gloria Brooks

    Hello, Adam! Thank you for all the time and amazing effort you put into this course! I’m super excited. I already ordered InMotion hosting via your site back in Nov. ’16, I think it was. Also, I installed WP on my new site. I also have LifterLMS‘s Universe pro plan. How do we handle this? Do I need to re-upload your files and will that delete all that I have? I guess I’d have to reupload the LifterLMS Universe bundle stuff too. NOt a big deal since I’ve been waiting for your course to come out and I’ve done very little work on the site, actually none other than making sure that plugins are updated. I just want to understand what I”m doing. I”m assuming that I need to re-install everything and it will wipe everything I currently have out. I reckon I would have to get the LifterLMS keys back into the site again as I think your files will wipe all that out. Otherwise, there’s nothing to lose. I can get those LifterLMS keys back in probably relatively easily. Thank you!

    1. Adam @ WPCrafter

      Well the way I provided this, the older version, would require you to download a package to restore on your website. This time around I don’t do it that way because what I found was I was robbing the people of the experience of getting comfortable using WordPress and I thought it was better to empower people by teaching them how to set everything up themselves. So if you have an existing site that already has LifterLMS on it, you can actually stick with that. You can skip to the video where I at all the plug-ins and you can continue on from there. This time around I’m using a different page builder, it’s called Elementor. It is such a fantastic page builder and you can build pretty much anything with it.

      1. The Elementor video ROCKED my world. I thought I understood Elementor‘s capabilities but I had only scratched the surface. Thanks for all the information you have shared. I sincerely appreciate it!

        1. Adam @ WPCrafter

          I am happy to hear that! I will be adding additional videos on different homepage layout for this course creator video series.

  21. Hi Adam
    None of this works in WordPress.. The new Plugin part of WordPress give you a list of about 20 that are either already activated or ready for upgrade.. The Generate press is not available. And there is no permalinks tab?

    1. Adam @ WPCrafter

      The only reason why you wouldn’t be able to see the same things that everyone else is able to see is if your WordPress login does not have the correct permissions. Every WordPress login can be assigned permissions, typically if you set your own WordPress website up for yourself you would have admin permissions, but if someone set the website up for you they could have given you lower permissions in order to protect you from breaking your own site.

  22. Hello, Adam! It looks like I may be one of the ones that doesn’t have the editor under Appearances so I can make additional tweaking changes. I think that may be because I did not do your fresh WordPress install. I used inmotion‘s install months ago. Odd that they don’t offer the editor. So, does this mean that when I decide I can handle holding my courses on WP (and go ALL in and no longer build courses on Weebly), that I would have to purchase the GeneratePress pro thingie? That’s fine, I just want to know ahead of time. At this point, it would be a real pain to have to do a fresh install of WP just to have the editor feature as I”ve already started working on the site according to your videos. Am I right? I’ll just purchase GeneratePress‘s premium and let the additional editing stuff go?

    1. Adam @ WPCrafter

      It is not always the host that hides it. It can also be your theme or a particular plug-in. What theme are you using? And are you using any security plug-ins on your site?

      1. Adam,

        I’m using your Generate Press theme only and deleted the LifterLMS Launchpad theme when I replaced it with Generate Press. So, maybe a plugin? I’m using the following:

        Elementor, Fullwidth Page Templates, iThemes Security, LifterLMS, Lifter LMS Helper, LifterLMS PayPal Gateway, LifterLMS Stripe Payment Gateway, Lifter LMS WooCommerce, Nav Menu Roles, UpdraftPlus – Backup/Restore, WP-Mail -SMTP and finally, Yoast SEO. Actually, I think pretty much everything I’ve added has been from your courses. I will probably just let the editing go until I’m ready to go all in and will just purchase Generate Premium unless you have a simple solution for now. Thank you!

        On a different note, I”m assuming that I”m doing all of the work I’m supposed to be doing in the child theme of Generate Press, correct? I sure hope so! He he!

        Gloria Brooks

        1. Adam @ WPCrafter

          Yes it’s a good idea to have the child theme activated when you start using or making any of these changes inside the customizer.

        2. Gloria,

          It is the iThemes Security that disabled your Edit button. Go to plugin settings and look for WordPress Tweaks, Click “Configure Settings: and 4th option down is File Editor. See if it is checked to disable, mine was by default.

      2. I’m using Generate Press for my theme and I’m pretty much using the plugins you’ve mentioned in your courses including using some security plugins too. Maybe there’s one that you didn’t recommend that I picked up along the way?

        I’m using Elementor, Fullwidth Page Templates, iThemes Security, LifterLMS, LifterLMS Helper, LifterLMS PayPal Gateway, LifterLMS Stripe Gateway, LifterLMS Woocommerce, Nav Menu Roles, UpdraftPlus – Backup/Restore, WP-Mail-SMTP, Yoast SEO.

        Thank you for looking at this!

        Gloria Brooks

        1. Adam @ WPCrafter

          Those plug-ins are all good ones. I do notice that you have multiple payment gateways in their that you might not be using with LifterLMS. I would just suggest you decide on which way you’re going to accept payments and only have that gateway installed and activated.

    1. Adam @ WPCrafter

      Unfortunately there isn’t a reliable solution to accomplish that. There are some video gallery plug-ins, but I find they are all poorly coded.

  23. Nice video, I think this course related only for graduated of any computer sciences. Its easy to build a website and uploading​ videos.

  24. Hi Adam WHEn I activate LifterLMS it shows this error Message

    Plugin could not be activated because it triggered a fatal error.
    Fatal error: Can’t use method return value in write context in /home/photoshi/public_html/wp-content/plugins/lifterlms/includes/models/model.llms.course.php on line 424

    1. Adam @ WPCrafter

      I believe that message is when you are running a very outdated version of PHP. If you follow my tutorials I walk you through making sure you’re using PHP version 7 on your hosting account. You must be using a 10-year-old version of PHP which will also make your website run very slow.

  25. Hello Adam. I’m having a little difficulty with the theme colors. The link hover color is pink and my course buttons are pink. I changed the color in Appearance, customize and the colors tab in the back end. However, that did not change it. I also used your CSS code provided in the resource files but removed and replaced all colors you originally had to my own colors. I verified this and re verified. I’m not sure what to do to change the link hover colors and the default pink buttons. The buttons change to blue when you hover over them.

    Any suggestions?

    1. Adam @ WPCrafter

      Those theme colors are in the functions file of the child theme. I did talk about that in the video where I set up everything in the customizer. It was towards the end of the video.

  26. Hello,

    I just recently found out about you and wow. I had been using Tesseract for the last 4 years and bought plus back in December. Wow did your one video really clear up some confusion.

    Well now I’m learning how to use generate press with Beaverbuilder and I am now a raving fan of yours.

    By the way, do you have a video on how to save a wordpress site as a template that can be sold? I’m trying to learn how to design from scratch and how to use a child theme to make a new improved theme.

    Have a great one and thank you for opening my eyes to the shady stuff Tesseract is doing.

    StayFrosty,

    -Carl, Jr.

    1. Adam @ WPCrafter

      Hey Carl, I am so happy to have you here! I like having doers here, that make things happen.

      One thing I used to do was design an entire website, then use a plugin called all in one migration to create a backup and distribute it. This way you can sell completely done websites.

      Is that what you were thinking?

  27. I am in! I started watching your 2016 videos and then I got stuck on choosing hosting (me and my students are all located in the Nordic countries and I wanted something local, but also something that was not too expensive, not to limited, and that could explain things for a non-techie like me. Didn´t go so well  but I think I am getting there). But I have realised that I really like my ideas for online courses, so now I am back and found your amazing 2017 version. Thanks so much! I am a total beginner on everything to do with an online presence – from creating my business website to including this template for online courses – so this resource is really, what I need! (The courses I am setting up are for beginning university students who need support in academic reading and writing or for teachers who want to add that kind of support to their courses).
    Thanks! /Karin

    1. Adam @ WPCrafter

      Wow Karin, I really hope the videos help you make this happen. I put a lot of effort into explaining every step yet leaving options for people to create what they want.

      I am here to support you every step of the way.

  28. Hi Adam,
    I can’t seem to install your files because it says – The package could not be installed. The theme is missing the style.css stylesheet. Can you please explain what is it I’m doing wrong why I cannot seem to upload the wpcrafter customised theme. I already have Generate press uplaoded no problem.

    1. Adam @ WPCrafter

      Did you follow the video where I FIRST installed the GeneratePress theme?

      Opps…it looks like you did. Can you confirm?

      Also what is the name of the file you are trying to upload?

  29. Yes I followed the video and I have installed the generate press theme and I have downloaded onto my computer your wpcrafter files but its from there I cannot seem to upload those files to my site because it says……… The theme is missing the style.css stylesheet?

    1. Adam @ WPCrafter

      Yes, but what exactly are you uploading? The child theme is zipped, it should be zipped with you upload it. This is why I am asking exactly what you are uploading. The exact file name.

  30. Hello, Adam! I’m going to have a store on my course site as well, so, I reckon the best plugin for that is Woocommerce. I’ve already installed it. I want to purchase the Elementor Pro with that and start building the store with Elementor, especially since Elementor has some nice Woocommerce page building features. My question is, is it then necessary for me to get a Woorcommerce child theme ? I think if I’m going to be editing Woocommerce all in Elmentor, then that means anything I do with your Elementor child theme and I won’t have to do double duty getting a separate Woocommerce child theme, correct?

    1. Adam @ WPCrafter

      No need for a WooCommerce child theme. If you are using GeneratePress, that will be all you need. Also, I know that GeneratePress is about to add a TON of WooCommerce features soon, like really soon. I will be doing a video on it this week for sure.

  31. Adam, I’ve figured out how to add Woocommerce using Elementor, but, I can’t seem to figure out how to add my blog using the Elementor page builder to my website. May I ask how do I add m blog to the course website? I mean, do, I just set up regular blog posts within WordPress (probably purchase GeneratePress for better blog building features) but then, how do I get the posts to show up on my Website using Elementor? I have tried looking all over including Elementor’s video helps to figure this out and I’m just not finding it. Thank you!

    1. This is actually quite easy to do. You can create a new page in name it whatever you want, or just name it blog. Then you would go into the reading settings of your website and tell WordPress that this page you created is going to be for your blog. You get there by going to settings and then clicking on reading options. I do think I have a video on it but I’m sure you’ll figure it out from there.

    Hello Adams, i really appreciate all your effort, you have really shaped my skills, pls what free plugin can i use to move my wordpress site from localhost to live host?
    thanks alot.

  33. Hey, Adam. God bless you buddy. I need to get that VooPlayer through you but your button is taking me to a page not found tab. Do you have the link I can buy this at this price from you?

  34. Hi Adam,

    Thank you for this awesome tutorial.

    When I go to appearance >customize.
    I’m not given an additional CSS option.
    Is there somewhere else I can put the coding to achieve the same result?

  35. Resource files don’t have the import files to be used with the all in one wp migration as shown in video. The instructions say to see the video but that is of no help if the actual import file isn’t present is there something I am missing.

    1. Yes there is, there was a notice on the 2016 version page that it was been retired and this is the new 2017 version. I thought that was clear via the notes, but will have to go and maybe make it more obvious.

  36. I have followed the this course completely but after time some of the pages are overwritten by lifterlms like my courses page, and memberships page. Do you know how to stop it from overwriting I even reinstalled lifterlms and skipped the create pages and still the same issue is there a code that is needed to be put in the fuctions.php or other location to stop the defaults. I have the fullwidth etc as well but it isn’t helping thanks in advance for any info on this.

    Hello Adam !

    I am Jonathan and I want to use this amazing opportunity to build my course website and support people on their personal healing, awakening, and conscious development (psychotherapy, holistic health, meditation, bio-decoding, mental and emotional deprogramming, etc….. However, I have my hosting with Arvixe Web Hosting and my service period will come to and end until April 2018. I’ll be able to switch to inmotion hosting then. Is there any way to get your bundle for the online courses for now so that I may continue to use your offering ? I do promise to change to inmotion so the course bundle offering may come to a balanced state for you.

    ——
    I have been intending to build my online coaching practice ever since 2014 and I have not been able to finish my website and make it fully functional. I occupied a lot of my time in practicing with many templates and I’m a bit comfortable with website building until I get to the advanced technicalities that I am simply not aligned with.

    Thank you for your amazing service and support !

    Hello Adam, I am using the wp multisite option since I’m planning to have many teachers on my network. I have installed and erased this site three times and this last time I decided on the wp multisite option. The reason I erased the installation is because I spent a lot of time and attempted everything you teach on your videos about the LifterLMS and it kept overriding the pages and menu. Now with the multisite, I didn’t get a chance to set up LifterLMS it just installed on the network and now it doesn’t display the menu. I notice that when in customize section on Lifter the Save option doesn’t save it just stays as “Save & Publish” the same thing happened when I used the single site option for wp installation. I did see that another gentleman asked you about the same Lifter overriding and you referred him back to your video.

  39. Hey Adam,

    I am loving the course and am on my way to setting up my own now. I was wondering if you could email me the course resources to … since I already have a hosting account i bought 6 months ago. PS, sent a $10 tip your way through paypal because I feel as though i should have paid at least $100 for this awesome course.

    Thanks

  40. Hi Adam,

    I have one request to you about Lifter LMS. Can you make video tutorial in YouTube how to setup Lifter LMS with Woo Commerce integration so that I can use Woo Commerce collection of payment gateway. Thank You in advance.

  41. Hi Adam,

    Thanks for the videos, I think they are going to be of great help to new users of LifterLMS and will help beautify the standard setup on our deployments of LifterLMS.

    I use LifterLMS on our Intranet but the theme I’m using, GovIntranet, doesn’t support the sidebars. I’m thinking of moving to OceanWP theme (http://oceanwp.org) instead of Generatepress since it already have mega menus, sticky header, etc., in the free version. This one also lacks support for the sidebars. Can you point me in the right direction to enable them like you did on your Generatepress child theme?

    Thanks in advance!

  42. Hi Adam. I’m going to jump in and develop an online course. You have made me take the first step and, of course, I’ll be following your course and videos on how to get it done. Thanks,
    Scott

  43. Tinashe Prosper

    Hi Adam, is it possible to download your stuff without buying hosting coz i already have hosting space & am failing to download

  44. Hi Adam, Thank you for everything for everything. This is the best course ever. I am very view step away from launching online course that I have been dreaming for many years. Now every thing is fine except that in elementer library, I cannot upload the the tampletes of the mainhomepage and the other two json files. So I tried to upload them from the cpanel in the /wp-content/plugins/elementor/includes/page-templates it didn’t work. So I am humbly asking is there a way of uploading from the cpanel, If it is possible would you give me the path if not please what would you advice me to fix it. My wordpress and the plugins are up to date. please help

  45. Hello Adam!
    I am from Bangladesh! looking for your guidence I have recently understand all the features of wordpress with your help and have made about 5-6 demo websites with elementor.

    I have basic idea for:-
    -adding child theme
    -adding security plug in
    beaver builder

    And I want to enter in the freelancing market as fast as possible need your guidence
    tell me what should I do next to learn more about creating websites
    I’m one of your big fan from Bangladesh,thankyou looking for your help!

  46. Hello Adam,
    Thank you so much for these wonderful videos!
    I’m too far in with a WHM/hosting situation to change (I think). Not sure if you have videos on WHM, if you do I’d love to know about them, my confidence could be higher, but I get by okay.

    I am currently moving a course I had on ruzuku to a site of my own. I installed and started working with the lfiterLMS infinity bundle, to use with convert kit, private areas, and other addons. Hopefully, a video on those addons will be coming (?). Divi is a theme I use often but I like what you are training here with elemantor, so I will give that a go following your lead. My course (psy/coaching) helps people learn how to cope with significant illness and disability.
    Two Questions –
    Given I have lifter/convert kit addon – is the SMTP plugin still needed?
    I use manageWP and its plugin for many sites to be notified when updates and comments are pending and wondered if you think updraft plus would conflict with it? I do like the idea of a backup going to dropbox.

    Your video training is top notch!
    As host changing is not on my radar is there another method to pay you, I feel guilty as you’ve done so much work?
    Big thanks!

    1. Hey Susan. You know if you have Divi, and like using Divi, you can use that with LifterLMS. It’s just my video series I choose to use Elementor partially because it is free, but even thought elementor is free, it is excellent.

      To answer your questions, yes you still need SMTP because even though you may use ConvertKit, that is not for transactional emails. You can’t use it for say a password reset email or things like that.

      Regarding ManageWP, I think it has a backup solution built in, so if you have that you don’t need Updrafts.

      Other than that I wish you the best in creating your online course! I’m here if you need me.

      1. Susan Wheeler-Hall

        Hi Adam,
        Thank you for your helpful reply. True I could go with Divi, but I have to say I really like your elementor video with the lifter.
        I did sign up in the big circle opt in – but did not get the resource files automatically as shown in your video. I did get 3 emails, one with link to 3 steps course, one to members dashbaord, but no resources. I think I read on another comment, that re signing up won’t help.
        Was hoping to follow along with your series. Let me know if I did something wrong?
        Thank you again, Susan

          1. Hi again Adam,
            yes everything is all set. I have been following your videos to the T (on #12) using elementor and I like it much more than divi – Your videos are really really good and easy to follow. I am buying the Pro eliminator to keep with the series. Hope to have my setup in place in a few days – will report back. You a terrific resource thank you again.

  47. Hell Adam. Thank you for the DFY templates! I am updating from the 2016 version to 2017 this weekend. awesome work!!

    Question: Aroind video 16 of your series you talked about turning “comments” off on your lesson and stated that you would later talk about a plug in that allows people to ask questions, give answers and upvote and such. but…. i didn’t see you come back and touch on that in the remaining videos. Did I miss it? Is it in a different video? I would love to learn more about that so I can get rid of BB Press forums on my site. Thanks!

    I’m having problems with the child theme. Firstly, I have text at the top of my page that says “I didn’t exercise today, that’s okay, you’ll do it tomorrow.” “I didn’t meditate today, quick do it now it takes 5 minutes.” I tried editing the page with elementor and elementor doesn’t start up. It just has a completely blank screen with no controls or anything. I don’t know what to do.

    1. You should read up on something called the GPL. It clearly spells out how all WordPress products are licensed. Essentially you are allowed to change any code, give it away for free, you can even resell it.

  49. I have followed the this course completely however when time some of the pages ar overwritten by lifterlms like my courses page, and memberships page. do you know how to prevent it from overwriting I even reinstalled lifterlms and skipped the produce pages and still a similar issue is there a code that’s required to be place within the fuctions.php or other location to prevent the defaults. I have the fullwidth etc as well however it isn’t serving to thanks beforehand for any info on this.

  50. mike.costantini

    Hi Adam, I really like the way your lesson viewing area looks compared to the stock Lifter layout which looks more like a blog post. Would I be able to use your layout/child theme if I’m already using GP on my site? I would be adding Lifter to an existing site, not starting a new site… Thanks!

  51. Hi Adam, wow your content is awesome After watching and working alongside your 2017 training course, I know I finally headed in the right direction. Starting from the ground up with your program is the way to go. Thanks so much for your awesome video!
    Need your expertise for the student enrolment how do I remove the field and if I need to upload student picture in the student enrolment . Which video related to these ?

    1. Not sure I fully understand your question, sorry. You want students to upload a picture? That is not an option, but the way WordPress or all websites get your photo is based on something named a Gravatar which is linked to your email address.

  52. Hi Adam ,

    I downloaded the resources for the 2017 online course , but when I try to import the json files (page templates) I get the following error message

    {“success”:false,”data”:[{“code”:”token_expired”,”message”:””}]}

  53. Adam … great job! I’m a YT subscriber but wondered something. I’m currently building a LMS website with LifterLMS and DIVI and I am thinking of using your affiliate link to switch to InMotion and your DYT template. Is there a way to keep the work I’ve done in LifteLMS and transfer to the new installation?

    For example … all the lessons have quizzes, prerequisites, and excerpts completed. I’d hate to re-do all of this! Any options?

  54. So, when using the Download Resources, it is unlike the 2016 version in that it will not completely replace the existing WordPress installation? BTW –
    does something change with Download Resources button? Currently, it currently re-directs to this page. I had anticipated a ZIP file that gets imported into the WordPress replacing the existing install. If not – that’s AWESOME!
