What Others Are Saying

„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, 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 online Learning Management site and community.
The breadth and depth of what Lifter 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. Lifter 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 LMS 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.”

FAQ

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The most common issues we see are either plugin conflicts, theme conflicts, or outdated servers.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 LifterLMS Pro license.

If you’re already a LifterLMS Pro user or you have purchased one of the LifterLMS themes or extensions, you’re entitled to log into your account and contact the support team directly on the LifterLMS website. We can provide a deeper level of support here 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?

LifterLMS offers technical support, but we do not offer custom website development. However, we do recommend third party LifterLMS Experts who can help with web design, web development, instructional design or marketing for a fee. Click here to visit the LifterLMS Experts page.

I’m interested in LifterLMS add-ons, but there are a few questions I’ve got before making the purchase. Can you help me get those addressed?

Absolutely. If you’re not finding your questions answered on the product pages, you can ask your presales questions through this contact form. You can also connect live with a member of our team here.

What add-ons are available for LifterLMS, and where can I read more about them?

Recenzje

LifterLMS is a powerful plugin, very easy to get to grips with, works well and offers a very simple way to create entire courses and is a solid choice in terms of power, ease of use and utility. One of differentiators we feel Lifter offers is the huge amount of support you get in terms of how the guys do everything in their power to help you succeed, which we find as a key differentiator. When you're running a business around online courses, you definitely need that level of support and LifterLMS and the team excel here.
Lipiec 28, 2019
Great LMS for anyone looking for a simple integration process. I'm using it with Elementor and Astra Pro using the Woocommerce add-on for Lifterlms, its been working great. The reason for 4 stars is the design options or lack thereof. I'd love to see more simple customization options in the future.
Lipiec 7, 2019
Great work! I really like the workflow and it was easy to create all my content so far. Also I was able to use elementor easily. I am getting settled to pay you if it stays that good 🙂 <3

The code has lots of WordPress hooks (actions and filters) which makes it easy to extend or customize the functionality and behavior.
