How to change the "/course" permalink

# Top

Have you ever wondered how you can change the /course/ permalink on your LifterLMS website? Look no further, we are teaching you how to do that here.

LifterLMS uses the /course/ permalink structure to identify that this is a course. For example, your course link can look this way: domain.com/course/this-is-your-course. For some sites, you may want to change the word “course” for your permalink structure.

There are steps involved in making sure you do this the right way. Please, always back up your site just incase anything goes wrong and breaks anything.

  • Insert this code in the PHP code editor plugin you have just installed and activated:
