Why is there no CoursePress "tab" under Appearance > Menus?

I'm trying to integrate social authentication and I want to show these other options on the CoursePress login page. I tried creating a page, but the shortcodes weren't working. When I read the docs I saw this:

Course Signup/Login Page [course_signup] Shows a custom login or signup page for front-end user registration and login. Note: This is already part of CoursePress and can be set in CoursePress Settings. Links to default pages can be found in Appearance > Menus > CoursePress.

I do not see a CoursePress "tab" under Menus and I want to know why that is the case.

    Thanks Calvin, that helped in part :slight_smile:. However, it seems like the CoursePress Pro theme I am using is not using a menu to show the Courses/Dashboard/Logout buttons. I assume this means I need to edit the theme itself?

    That aside, I'm really just trying to get the social authentication working. I tried pointing it to a page titled Login instead of using a virtual page, but when I include this shortcode in the page:

    [cp_pages page="student_login"]

    The body of the page disappears. Could you help me figure out why the shortcode is not working and in fact wiping out any other page content?

    Hello @chrislim

    I hope you are well today.

    However, it seems like the CoursePress Pro theme I am using is not using a menu to show the Courses/Dashboard/Logout buttons. I assume this means I need to edit the theme itself?

    Coursepress adds those menus automatically in the primary menu section, But I recommend to use your own menu. You can add any menu items you want from Appearances > Menus. And if you want to remove automatically added menu, please go to Coursepress Pro > Settings > General and uncheck the box for "Display menu items".

    I'm really just trying to get the social authentication working. I tried pointing it to a page titled Login instead of using a virtual page, but when I include this shortcode in the page:

    Were you logged in when you viewed the page? Note that, you need to be logged out when you will check the login page.

    Please let us know.

    Cheers
    Ash
