Lesson Page Content

The lesson page content is where you have full control over adding whatever content you’d like to your lesson. If you’ve added topics or quizzes to your lesson, LearnDash will automatically add a list of associated content to the bottom of the lesson page.

The lesson page content you add here is your own custom information that will be displayed above any associated topics or quizzes.

Where to Add Lesson Page Content

  1. Navigate to LEARNDASH LMS > LESSONS
  2. Click on the lesson you’d like to edit -or- click the Add New button
  3. You will automatically land on the Lesson page tab
  4. You can immediately start adding your content

Lesson Title

Your lesson title is the first thing you’ll see at the top of the editing screen. Look for a placeholder that says “Add Lesson title.”

Most themes display the lesson title near the top of the page, below your header and/or global navigation.

Lesson URL

When you click inside of the “Add Lesson title” box, you’ll see an area appear above, labeled “Permalink.” This is your lesson URL.

You can edit the third part of the URL:


In most cases, the permalink should be a reflection of your lesson title.

  1. Click the “Edit” button next to the permalink
  2. Type your new permalink
  3. Hit Enter, or click the Save button
This shows a course URL but lesson URLs are edited the same way.

Lesson Content

Everything below the lesson title is a blank canvas for you to add your content. This is powered by the same WordPress editor used for pages, blog posts and other content types in WordPress.

Add text, insert images, embed videos or other multimedia content, link to PDFs or audio files… the possibilities are endless. You have full control over the type of learning experience you deliver to your users.

For more information on how to use the WordPress editor, please see the official WordPress Editor documentation.

The featured image is the main image associated with your lesson.

  1. Look for the Featured Image panel in the sidebar
  2. If it’s not already open, click on it to open it
  3. Click Set featured image
  4. Choose an image from your Media Library, or upload a new one
  5. Click the Select button at the bottom
This shows a course image but lesson images work the same way.
