We’re incredibly pleased and overwhelmed that you have chosen a theme from RadiantThemes for your website. We're sure you won’t be disappointed! Here, we outline all types of the necessary information and provide you with all the essential details you require for using the theme. Our themes can only be used with WordPress and we presume that you already have WordPress installed and ready to go.

Essential Requirements and Recommended Settings--

Recommended Hosting

We recommend using a cPanel or Plesk based hosting from a renowned hosting service provider such as https://wordpress.org/hosting or from Google cloud, AWS, DigitalOcean. Many low-cost providers provide their custom web-based panel which most of the time don’t have the required configuration to run websites smoothly.

We recommend using Siteground.com for any hosting related need. Order plain cPanel based hosting. Don’t order just WordPress Hosting from any hosting provider. WordPress hosting has lots of limitation and you might not be able to accomplish everything.

Ideally cPanel, Plesk driven control panels work seamlessly. Also, make sure that your provider uses the latest version of PHPMyAdmin. The older version of PHP and PHPMyAdmin might not support.

Recommended Hosting

Create & edit a lesson--

A. Creating a Lesson

To Create a lesson, as we mentioned above, you will need to enter a section name. In this example, we used "Section One". After that, you will see the option to add new lessons.

You could also give a description about the section.

If you already have multiple lessons or quizzes that are created but not assigned to a specific course, you can use the "Select items" button to find and add created lessons or quizzes.

Please understand that according to the system design of LearnPress LMS, one Lesson can only be assigned to one course. If you want one lesson to be used with more courses, please try to duplicate them.

B. Another way to create a lesson:

You could also add a new lesson by reaching to LearnPress > Lessons. This is where all lessons are managed. It will give you details about each and every lesson in your system. If you try to add lessons this way, you won’t be able to assign the lesson you created to a course right away. You will then need to go to LearnPress > Courses > Edit a course or create a new course to assign the lesson to that course.

C. Edit a lesson:

After you have created a lesson and assigned it to a course, if you hover to the lesson, you will see many options to do with it:

1) Drag and drop the lesson to change its position

2) Rename the lesson

3) Make it previewable or not

4) Edit it

5) Remove it from the course (unassign) or delete it from the system completely

If you choose to edit the course, you will be led to the Lesson Editor Page where you can add more information, content to the lesson and give it some settings.

Here is how the Lesson Editor Page looks like:

There are some more settings in the Lesson Editor Page:

1) Lesson Duration: Duration of the lesson. Set 0 to disable.

2) Preview Lesson: Toggle between previewable or not

3) Media: Embed Iframe code if you want to make it appear as a video or if you want to add pdf, slider,etc to the lesson.

Create & edit quizzes--

A quiz is a collection of lessons. Creating a Quiz is quite similar to Lesson. You can create a new quiz by:

Go to 'LearnPress > Quizzes' where all quizzes in the system is managed

Or go to one Course and create a quiz in the curriculum.

The Quiz icon is quite distinguishable with the lesson icon.

Upon editing a quiz, there are some new settings because you will need to create questions and setup lessons inside a quiz.

Here is how a Quiz Editor Page looks like:

In the Course Editor Page, there are some settings:

1) Quiz Title: Title of the quiz

2) Quiz Description: Description of the quiz

3) Questions: Where you can create new questions, or select questions created by using the button Select. You can start typing the question name and press Enter and it will open the Question Setting for you.

4) Quiz settings: Setup some basic information for the quiz like Duration, minus point of an incorrect answer, passing grade (condition for passing), whether to allow showing the answer or hint while doing quiz, etc.

Adding Questions--

As we mentioned previously, you can type the name of the first question in the question box and press Enter and it will open the Question Setting for you.

For example, in this screenshot, I created a question and here is what the question setting looks like.

The default type for the question is True/False. You can switch to other question type if you want. The default available Quiz type for LearnPress quizzes are: True or False, Multiple Choice, Single Choice.

You could also duplicate the question, or remove it from the quiz (unassign the question) or remove it from the system permanently.

Down below, you can: Add more answer option, change text of the answer, choose the correct answer.

On the right side, there are more settings of the question that allows you to:

1) Use the Question Content to add more content to the question to provide more detail to it. The editor here is quite simple. If you click on Edit Question icon on the top right of the question setting, you will be redirected to the Single Question Editor Page where you can use more Rich text formating or different editors.

2) Mark for this question: Add mark for the question. If the student get it right, they will earn that mark.

3) Question Explanation: Sometimes, you may want to give explanation to your question after your student have taken it.

4) Question Hint: Sometimes, you may want to give your student some hints on what to do to find the solution.
