LifterLMS Navigation Menu Items

Overview

LifterLMS adds several endpoints to your website which are not directly accessible via regular WordPress pages. Most of these items come from the Student Dashboard. When editing your navigation menus, you can use LifterLMS menu items to add direct links to these custom endpoints.

Additionally, LifterLMS adds sign in and sign out links which display conditionally based on the visitor’s current login status.

Sign In and Sign Out Menu Items

The “Sign In” and “Sign Out” menu items are special menu items which display conditionally based on the current visitor’s logged-in status.

The “Sign In” item will only display for logged out users and conversely the “Sign Out” menu item will only display for logged in users.

The “Sign Out” menu item also has a dynamic url which changes depending on the currently logged in user. When URL found in menu editor is #llms-signout. If you change this URL it will not allow users to log out! So don’t change it.
