    Just found this wonderful little WordPress plugin that I’m quite excited about.

    It’s called WPComplete and it allows you to put simple mark-as-complete buttons on any WP pages or custom post types.

    What this means is that you can create your own custom lightweight LMS, without all the bloat of plugins like LearnDash/LifterLMS/etc.

    The great thing is that you have full control over what the button looks like and where its placed on each page.

    You can also manually set a completion redirect on each page, so when the student marks complete on Page A you can send them to Page B and so on.

    The reviews on the download page for the free version are ALL 5 star, and they rave about how great the plugin works and how awesome their tech support is.

    The premium version ($59) includes extra features such as the ability to create multiple courses, customize the buttons, etc.

    This plugin isn’t for everyone (such as people who aren’t ready for WordPress, or who need advanced LMS features like quizzing/etc), but it gives you 80% of the features of something like LearnDash with only 20% of the complexity.

    What I am most excited about is the combo of this plugin and Beaver Builder, which really opens the floodgates of creativity for someone like me.

    For example, I could create a series of super creative landing pages with BB, then use the WPComplete plugin to connect them all and turn it into a free mini course.

    Anyways, in the spirit of simplicity, it’s well worth a look 😉

    Here’s a quick overview vid:

    Thanks for mentioning this @andyfreist. I was leaning towards creating my own pages for a “design your own adventure” type course and this may very well be the super glue to bring it all together.

    You bet… and yes, this would work wonders for something like that… you could set up a one path course and on the last page set up a conditional bit of content that appears when you mark the final button off.. then you could make 2 buttons appear- choose left or right.. then each of those options could have its own pathway out, and you could technically get as complex as you want… I wonder if you can assign one page to multiple courses… that would be ideal to make multiple pathways/courses with more or less the same content 😉
