In this article, we will go over the options that you can apply to your course by accessing the General Settings.
If you haven't set up any courses yet, don't forget to check out our article on how to create your first Thrive Apprentice course.
Setting a Different Page for Your Courses
When you first access the Thrive Apprentice plugin, you will have to go through a few mandatory steps. One of those steps is selecting a page for your courses:
However, if you want to change the page you have initially selected, you can simply do that from the General Settings. In order to get there, go on the left sidebar, in Thrive Apprentice, and access Settings > General Settings:
After you select that option, you will see all the options on the right side of the screen:
In order to change the page you have initially set, look for the "Courses Page" field:
And to move the courses to a different page, click on "Remove Page":
Once you do that, simply type in the page name from your website in the field. It will automatically search among the pages from your website and find the one that you have indicated:
Whenever you are choosing a page for your courses, we recommend that you choose a page that has no existing content added to it.
Setting the Course Limit per Page
You can set how many courses you want to display on your Apprentice page:
Note: if you set a limit of 20 courses, but you have 21 or more courses published, the plugin will create a second page, within the Thrive Apprentice page that you have selected:
In this way, on each page, you will be able to display as many courses you have set in the Course Limit field.
Load Themes and Plugins Scripts & Styles
If this feature is turned OFF - Your Apprentice Page will take NO custom scripts and styles from the active themes and plugins from your WordPress website:
Perform Auto-Login When Signing Up
Setting Up Your Opt-in Form
First of all, you need to create an Opt-in form through which your visitors can sign up on your website - In this way, they will become users on your website.
You can find out how to build such an Opt-in form and establish a connection with WordPress, in this article.
On the final step of your Opt-in form setup, you have the possibility to send your user to a certain page, after he has completed the form:
And, just like that, after your user has submitted your form and has become a user on your website, he will be sent straight to your Apprentice page.
Using the Auto-Login Feature from Thrive Apprentice
What you need to remember, first of all, is that this feature is set to be ON, by default:
However, if you turn it off, your newly subscribed user will be sent to your Apprentice page but will have to log into his account again.
Show Login Form to Not Logged in Users
Remember that, when you are creating a course, in the Advanced Settings, you have the option to make the course visible only to the users that have logged in on your website.
Having that in mind, in the General Settings you have the option to display a Login Form, on your course, that will be shown to the users that haven't logged in:
If the toggle is switched on, the following section will appear on your course, allowing you to choose the registration page that the users will see:
Note: The form that you will find on this page will not be customizable. If you want to customize your Login or Registration form, please check out this article and follow the steps explained there.
Display "Powered by Thrive Apprentice"
The next option will let you set if you want the "Powered by Thrive Apprentice" label to be shown or not. If you want it removed, make sure that this switch is turned off:
If you do enable it, this is what the label will look like:
Enable Comments for Courses
Lastly, you can choose to enable or disable comments for the courses. If you want them to be enabled, make sure this option is activated:
