Sidebar into a CoursePress course page ans Shortcode

Hello,

I'm testing Coursepress Pro to know if I will use it instead of my Moodle platform.
I'm testing this plugin with the Coursepress theme.

SIDEBAR
-------------
I create a unit but the unit displayed page is without sidebar.
I don't know how and where I can choose another template page when I crate the unit to display a right sidebar.

SHORTCODES
--------------------
I want to know if there are shortcodes with Coursepress to include them into pages or post.

Pending your reply.
Thanks
Ludovic

    Hello Ludovic,

    Units are not pages - they are virtual "pages" that are using single-unit.php template. So for the sidebar you would need to create child theme and change the single-unit.php file to add the sidebar.

    I've prepared sample child theme, with test empty sidebar, so you can check how this works.

    I want to know if there are shortcodes with Coursepress to include them into pages or post.

    List of all shortcodes you will find in CoursePress Pro -> Settings -> Shortcodes. You will see that there are many shortcodes that are allowing you to place many elements of courses with them, but actual courses (units and modules) cannot be placed on pages/posts.

    kind regards,
    Kasia
