and a lot more, all in one place on your website.
There are a few settings to be configured in order to make the instructor profile work properly on your website.
Your website must have pretty permalinks setup in order for the instructor profile URL’s to function properly.
Enable Profile Links
You need to enable the profile links settings under LearnDash LMS 🠚 Instructor 🠚 Profile settings
This will allow the site visitors to access the instructor profile from the course archive and single pages.
Make sure that your theme supports displaying author name and link on the course archive and single pages
There is a lot of information displayed on the instructor profile page. In order to set and display all of it their respective settings must be saved from the user profile page either by the instructor or the administrator.
The default user profile image will be used to set the profile image on the instructor profile page.
To get the best experience, we would suggest setting a profile image with dimensions 220 x 220 pixels
