Lesson navigation

If you’d like to add a way for students to navigate forward and backward in your lessons, you use these two shortcodes.

First, use pages to create your lessons, then give each a “Menu Order” (this is a standard WordPress feature found in the edit page or quickedit options). Then use these shortcodes to create links for users to navigate forwards and backwards in your lessons:

[wpc_previous_page] [wpc_next_page]

You can limit this to only the previous page in a certain course, or only the next page in a certain course, by adding a course tag to the shortcode:

[wpc_previous_page course="Course-Name"] [wpc_next_page course="Course-Name"]

There are also options available should you want to add text before or after the link, or add text if you’re at the start or final lesson:

[wpc_previous_page prepend="Before text: " append=" (After text)" not_found="Ready?"]

[wpc_next_page prepend="Before text: " append=" (After text)" not_found="That's it!"]
