The LearnDash Profile block and
[ld_profile] shortcode are used to display some information about the currently logged in user, along with a list of courses they are enrolled in. Design Upgrade Pro lets you create quite a few different layouts & combinations of what info you want to display, and how you want to display it. Let’s take a look.
The profile summary refers to the entire top section of the LearnDash Profile. This section contains:
For the layout, you have two options:
There are also two color options you can customize for the profile summary area:
The profile stats are the 4 statistics that are shown in the profile summary area.
In general, Design Upgrade Pro identifies 3 main sections of the LearnDash Profile that you can hide.
Here’s a visual of what each of these sections are referring to:
Enabling any of the following 3 options will hide the corresponding section:
There are 2 options we provide for the user’s avatar in the top section of the Profile Summary.
Avatar Style provides the following options:
Avatar Size allows you to set the size of the avatar, in pixels. Leave black to use the default
150 is also the maximum value you can use.
By default, the “Edit Profile” link appears just below the user’s name in the top section of the profile. It links to the user’s profile page in the backend of WordPress. For most people, this is considered a less-than-ideal experience. Design Upgrade Pro gives you two ways to handle this:
Our plugin does not create a separate profile page, or make any part of the user’s profile editable. This must be handled with other plugins/tools. Design Upgrade Pro simply allows you to make the link point to a different page.
The next set of options allows you to hide a handful of elements in the profile. Enabling any of the following options will completely hide the corresponding piece of information.
Enabling this feature will remove the “Expand All” button, as well as the arrows inside each course that open/close course details, and always show all the content inside of each course (mainly, any assignments, quizzes and/or essays belonging to the course). This applies to the “Your Courses” section of the LearnDash Profile.
Enabling this option will remove the “Search” link at the top of the “Your Courses” section. This means that the search function that LearnDash provides will be inaccessible.
Quiz, essay & assignment lists are found once you expand a course in the “Your Courses” section of the LearnDash Profile. Here’s a visual representation:
These will only appear if the user viewing his or her profile has taken a quiz, submitted an essay or uploaded an assignment corresponding to that course. Our plugin provides options to hide any or all of these 3 sections if you don’t want them to appear on the LearnDash Profile.
