Scaling LifterLMS From A Simple Online Course…

LifterLMS is incredibly flexible, customizable and scalable. It can be used for a simple one course website, and it can also be used as course marketplace or multi instructor online school. LifterLMS can handle small sites with low course enrollments, and it’s also used in large universities and inside fortune 500 corporations for employee training.

Unlike hosted LMS software where you would pay monthly for access and pay more as your platform grows, LifterLMS does not charge you more per course. LifterLMS also does not charge you more per instructor or per student or based on your revenue.

Some LifterLMS websites are small in terms of course and membership enrollments by design. Some are quite large in the hundreds of thousand of course enrollments. The largest site we know about has 734,415 course enrollments.

Wether you are going big or keeping it small, LifterLMS can scale to your needs for your online course, membership site, training portal, or remote school.

What Others Are Saying About LifterLMS for Course Building, Membership Sites, and Remote Schools…

“I’ve used a number of course creation and delivery platforms over the years. And they were all fine… right up to the day when they weren’t. The trouble is, they all want you to package and manage your course the way THEY think you should do it. THEIR feature set. THEIR way to do it. Now I host all my courses on LifterLMS. TOTALLY different experience, because I’m free to do things MY way. I’ve never yet hit a wall where LifterLMS didn’t enable me to do things the way I wanted. Love it! Great support and community too.”

Nick Usborne, Teacher, Entrepreneur

WP101.com serves more than 30,000 members, so it’s no small challenge to migrate to a new membership plugin. We spent more than a year carefully evaluating dozens of LMS and membership plugins before we finally discovered LifterLMS (a membership plugin and LMS plugin combined into one). It was the only plugin that checked all the boxes for our needs for course creation and membership functionality. And the LifterLMS team also shares our passion for creating better online learning experiences. In particular, we deeply resonate with their goal of restoring the human touch to online learning—something that is absent from most online courses today.”

Shawn Hesketh, Owner, WP101

“As a former School Teacher, professional User Experience Designer, and current online course creator – I can honestly attribute much of our success to LifterLMS and it’s consideration for multiple learning modalities, the LMS UI/UX out of the box, and natural student Engagement opportunities. In less than 10 months we’ve gone from $0 to $300K in revenue with LifterLMS playing a huge part in that!! I’m looking forward to everything that comes next from the creators of LifterLMS!!”

Sarah Lorenzen, Teacher, Entrepreneur

“LifterLMS has been the best decision we have made towards the build out of our course library, online Learning Management System site, and community. The breadth and depth of what LifterLMS offers in a few WordPress plugins exceeds anything else we evaluated as it includes: easy course construction, integrated eCommerce, community capabilities, gamification and the support for delivery of 1-on-1 coaching collaboration services. Lifter also has pre-built integrations with other key WordPress technologies we wanted to use. LifterLMS has attracted a solid community and support network of leading experts to help guide anyone who wants to transform the world or their industry with online training. Chris and the Lifter team are real people, and they care.”

Michael Wolf, CEO, emPowering NOW LLC (Golden XPR)

“I bought/installed LifterLMS yesterday then spent the day having a blast! Two years ago I started writing a book, which morphed into wanting to present the material online in a more interactive way. I started my website from scratch in January and installing the WordPress LMS plugin was a milestone moment! A milestone moment that turned out to be one joy right after the other! I’m always amazed when something is made easy! The LifterLMS product is amazing!! Power to the people! Really quite extraordinary to have something so helpful be able to be in the hands of regular folk.”

Margot Worthy, Author, Teacher

ਅਕਸਰ ਪੁੱਛੇ ਜਾਂਦੇ ਸਵਾਲ

Where do I buy LifterLMS add-ons or bundles?

You can explore the individual add-ons here or save BIG with a bundle

Are there any troubleshooting steps you’d suggest I try that might resolve my issue before I post a new thread?

First, make sure that you’re running the latest version of LifterLMS. And if you’ve got any other LifterLMS extensions or themes, make sure those are running the most current version as well.

The most common issues we see are either plugin conflicts, theme conflicts, or outdated servers. You can test if a plugin or theme is conflicting by manually deactivating other plugins until just LifterLMS is running on your site. If the issue persists from there, revert to the default Twenty Fifteen theme. If the issue is resolved after deactivating a specific plugin or your theme, you’ll know that is the source of the conflict. If it is a hosting issue, contact your web host and make sure they’re running the most current version of PHP.

Also be sure to check out the official LifterLMS Knowledge Base.

I’m still stuck. Where do I go to file a bug or ask a question?

Users of the free LifterLMS should post their questions in the plugin’s WordPress.org forum. If you find you’re not getting support in as timely a fashion as you wish, you might want to consider purchasing a product from LifterLMS so you can access the LifterLMS support team.

If you’re already a LifterLMS customer, you can simply log into your account and contact the support team directly on the LifterLMS website. We can provide a deeper level of support in there and address your needs on a daily basis during the work week. Generally, except in times of increased support loads, we reply to all comments within 12 business hours.

LifterLMS is awesome! Can you set it all up for me?

I tried others and then went to LifterLMS. I have found LifterLMS's customer service to be off-the-map good. The tool itself is solid and flexible. I know from having set up and pulled down learning sites, repeatedly. There is more... extensions, learning, and community too. After using the Universe bundle, I could not help but step up to Infinity.
25 ਨਵੰਬਰ 2022
Added to our site and have never had a conflict from Lifter or any of their stuff. Also - its a great LMS (course software) - easy for content users to add/update/manage courses. I would not offer any other LMS to my customers.
25 ਨਵੰਬਰ 2022
I´ve tested a lot of LMS-solutions - Lifter LMS is my favorite one. Because it’s easy to set up, comfortable to customize with CSS and has a lot of features you normally get in paid solutions.
24 ਨਵੰਬਰ 2022
I have not buy yet, Support team helps me understand how to implement this app very clearly.
18 ਨਵੰਬਰ 2022
I discovered LifterLMS after struggling with a different WordPress LMS plugin for nearly a year. Right off the bat, they were different. A demo site to play with for 30 days for $1? Amazing. Support? Outstanding, the best I've encountered in WordPress! From the pre-sales Zoom to email support to documentation and tutorial videos -- everything is first-rate (shoutout to Will, Kurt, and Natalie!). My nonprofit took a leap of faith and invested in the Infinity Bundle because I'm certain it will save us dozens of hours of staff time. I really can't say enough good things about LifterLMS. Looking forward to growing our online learning site with them!
11 ਨਵੰਬਰ 2022
I have been a subscriber for a while now and am very impressed with everything about this plugin and the LifterLMS team. Tested everything thoroughly and will be launching my e-learning website soon. Support is excellent and the information the team provides will enable anybody with the most basic experience on WordPress to design and launch an online course in no time at all. I checked out all the competition as well, these guys have the best product. Thanks LifterLMS team, you have a winner.`

ਤਬਦੀਲੀ-ਚਿੱਠਾ

v7.0.1 – 2022-11-14

Bug Fixes

  • Fixed a fatal error encountered on the payment confirmation screen when attempting to confirm a non-existent order. #2093
  • Use sanitize_file_name() in favor of sanitize_title() for generating the file name of reporting table export files. #1540
  • Resolved conflict encountered on post edit screens when using LifterLMS, Yoast SEO, and the Classic Editor plugin. #2298

Developer Notes

  • A stub method, get_title() has been added to the LLMS_Abstract_Exportable_Admin_Table abstract class. This method should be defined by any extending classes and will throw a _doing_it_wrong() error when undefined.
  • Added new filter to allow customizing which user roles are affected by the LLMS_Admin_Menus::instructor_menu_hack function.

v7.0.0 – 2022-10-04

New Features

  • Added handling for admin settings options that store their option values in a nested array.
  • Added new AJAX checkout and payment source switching endpoints for payment gateways to utilize instead of the preexisting synchronous form submission methods.
  • On purchase completed retrieve the redirection URL from the INPUT_POST ‘redirect’ variable, if no ‘redirect’ variable is passed via INPUT_GET. The INPUT_POST ‘redirect’ variable comes from the new checkout form’s hidden field ‘redirect’ populated with LLMS_Access_Plan::get_redirection_url(). #2229

Updates and Enhancements

  • Full Site Editing: [BREAKING] The wrappers in the custom header and footer templates have been changed to the semantic HTML tags <header> and <footer> in favor of default <div> tags. #2281
  • When an order post is restored from the trash its post status will now be “llms-pending” in favor of the default “draft” status.

Bug Fixes

  • Fixed unclosed checkout div wrapper on empty cart. #2277
  • Don’t attempt to lookup the default payment gateway from user meta data.
  • Fixed required fields duplication when the form is a child of a .wp-block-column element. #2134
  • Fixed an issue that prevented disabling the access plan’s option, Override Membership Redirects, once enabled. #2234
  • Disabled scroll-behavior: smooth on checkout screen to address form element validity checking issues on Chromium-based browsers. #2206

Deprecations

  • Deprecated LLMS_Controller_Orders::switch_payment_source() in favor of LLMS_Controller_Checkout::switch_payment_source().
  • Deprecated the lifterlms_update_option_{$type} action in favor of the llms_update_option_{$type} filter.
  • Method LLMS_Controller_Orders::confirm_pending_order() is deprecated in favor of LLMS_Controller_Checkout::confirm_pending_order().
  • Method LLMS_Controller_Orders::create_pending_order() is deprecated in favor of LLMS_Controller_Checkout::create_pending_order().
  • Method LLMS_Controller_Orders::switch_payment_source() is deprecated in favor of LLMS_Controller_Checkout::switch_payment_source().
  • Passing jQuery selections into the window.LLMS.Spinner functions is deprecated. Use JS Elements or selection strings parseable by document.querySelector() instead.
  • Deprecated hook llms_{$method}_title in favor of llms_{$method}_refund_title.

Developer Notes

  • Added admin settings helper function, llms_get_dashicon_link(), intended to enable the addition of external resource helper links to settings field descriptions.
  • The LLMS_Student object can be instantiated as an empty object and bypass current user autoloading. In the future this may affect integrations using the lifterlms_new_pending_order action hook which will receive an “empty” student object during order setup by gateways utilizing new AJAX-powered checkout endpoints.
  • Added a filter, llms_gateway_{$this->id}_logging_enabled, which will allow force enabling/disabling of gateway logging functions.
  • Improved payment gateway secure string logging by adding a method, add_secure_string() allowing developers to add secure strings during runtime without the necessity of registering the strings using filters.
  • Introduces new function llms_is_option_secure() for determining if an “secured” option is defined in a “secure” manner.
  • Implemented new gateway feature: modify_recurring_payments. #2176
  • Added two new parameters to LLMS_Access_Plan::get_redirection_url() – $encode to optionally get a raw (not encoded) URL. – $querystring_only to optionally get only the redirect URL if set via NPUT_GET variable.
  • Added new parameter $querystring_only to the filter hook llms_plan_get_checkout_redirection.
  • Admin settings fields now display after_html for additional field types which support desc.
  • The CSS for .llms-spinning and .llms-spinner elements is no longer loaded as part of the lifterlms.css and admin.css files, instead it is loaded dynamically when window.LLMS.Spinner functions are called. In some cases CSS overrides to these elements which relied on CSS rule load order may no longer successfully override the default CSS rules. These overrides may need to be updated to have more specific selectors in order to ensure the overrides are retained.
  • The Javascript object, window.LLMS.Spinner, has been converted to a module accessible from the same variable.
  • The window.LLMS.Spinner methods now accept JS Elements and selector strings parseable by document.querySelector() in addition to jQuery selections.
  • Added new filter llms_transaction_can_be_refunded enabling custom refund restrictions to be applied to a transaction.
