To configure settings for the Lifter WordPress LMS Plugin…
Go to LifterLMS > Settings in your WordPress Admin menu.
Go to LifterLMS > Settings > “General”
This is just a ‘dashboard’ of sorts. It offers a quick overview of statistics like…
- Course Enrollments This Week
- New Members This Week
- Lessons Completed This Week
- Total Sales This Week
Go to LifterLMS > Reporting for more advanced reporting.
Go to LifterLMS > Settings > “Catalogs”
Change the Page that should display your “Course Catalog” (optional).
Define how many ‘Courses per page’ should display on the Course Catalog page. To display all Courses, enter ‘-1’
Set ‘Catalog Sorting’ by choosing your preference from the dropdown.
Now, define all these settings for the “Memberships Catalog” as well!
Click “Save Changes” to save.
Go to LifterLMS > Settings > “Accounts”
Select the page you’d like to be your students’ ‘Dashboard Page’ from the dropdown.
The rest of the pages defined in this section were automatically created if you used the Setup Wizard. You’ll probably want to leave the page slugs (like ‘edit-account’) as is.
User Information Options
Want to simplify log in for your users? Check ‘Disable Usernames’ to enable email address login.
Go to LifterLMS > Settings > “Checkout”
Choose a ‘Checkout Page’ from the dropdown. Default is correct if you used the Setup Wizard! Same with ‘Confirm payment.’
Check ‘Force SSL’ to enable secure checkout. You’ll want to do this. Note that this requires an SSL certificate.
Choose a ‘Country’ and ‘Currency’ from the dropdown.
Select the ‘Currency Position’ you want, etc.
Go to LifterLMS > Settings > “Engagements”
Define your email settings if the default is not correct. You can even upload a ‘Header Image’ to customize the email notifications that students will receive.
Define the width and height for certificate background images.
Go to LifterLMS > Settings > “Integrations”

Why enable Buddypress? If you want your elearning site to include robust social networking tools, you’ll want to enable Buddypress. The Lifter integration for Buddypress will add course-related goodies to the normal Buddypress profiles.
