Uncanny LearnDash Toolkit


Important: This plugin requires PHP 5.6 or higher and LearnDash 2.5 or higher.

The Uncanny LearnDash Toolkit adds 14 modules that every elearning site needs, including a login form, login redirect, resume capabilities and more. Trusted to power over 10,000 LearnDash sites, it’s the easiest way to improve the learning experience for your students. Translation ready and multisite capable!

The Uncanny LearnDash Toolkit adds the following features to your LearnDash site:

  • Front End Login: Replace the default WordPress login form with a clean, modern login form that you can add to any branded page. Also supports front end password reset with a custom email. User verification can be enabled to require registrations be approved by an administrator.
  • Hide Admin Bar: Hide the WordPress admin bar for specific user roles.
  • LearnDash Resume Button: Allow users to pick up where they left off in a LearnDash course by clicking a button.
  • Login/Logout Redirects: Redirect learners to a specific URL after signing in or out of the site.
  • Menu Item Visibility: Control the visibility of menu entries based on whether or not the user is signed in.
  • Show or Hide Content: Use shortcodes to show or hide content based on whether or not a user is signed in. Great for Open course types.
  • Log In/Log Out Links: Add Log In and Log Out links to menus, or to any page or widget with a shortcode. If you have been frustrated by signed in users seeing Login links, this will help.
  • Topics Autocomplete Lessons: Automatically mark lessons complete when all topics and quizzes for that lesson are marked complete.
  • User Switching: View courses and the rest of your site as a specific user without requiring their password.
  • LearnDash Breadcrumbs: Add breadcrumb links that support courses, lessons, topics and quizzes. Also supports WooCommerce, custom post types and more.

  • LearnDash Groups in User Profiles: Easily identify LearnDash Group membership from user profile pages.

This review is based purely on my experience with using this plug-in (and using it in combination with the pro version). Aside from all the potentially useful features this plug-in offers, I noticed one unavoidable truth. It dramatically slows down the performance of my site. My simple test is this. Run the site with the plug-in activated and my chosen settings in place, as they pertain to my LMS. Note of the response time of pages, while navigating around in the LMS. Then, deactivate the plug-in- and note the response time of the same LMS pages. My observation has been that everything takes significantly longer to load while using the uncanny toolkit plugin. Admittedly I don't know every aspect of everything that is involved in this process. But I do know that it's slower when I use this plug-in, making its usability questionable for me. Has anybody else experienced this issue?

This is excellent plugin for LearnDash with advanced features. Excellent support too. I recommend also Premium version and Tin Canny plugin.

I've been using this plugin on client sites for several years, and I can't live without it! It offers excellent add-ons that make your life easier so you don't have to manually code the options it offers, and I don't always need all of the options available, but I always need some of them, which makes it the perfect add-on to LearnDash. The developers are very responsive as well - I highly recommend this plugin and send a huge kudos to the devs - they maintain this plugin quite regularly! With 10,000+ installs, you know that you can trust this to be a great addition to the WordPress repository - thanks, guys!

This plugin is a must-have if you have a Learndash site. Also, the support from the Uncannyowl team is outstanding. They go out of their way to help when you have a problem or issue. I highly recommend this plugin and these developers.
