Scaling LifterLMS From A Simple Online Course

LifterLMS is incredibly flexible, customizable and scalable. It can be used for a simple one course website, and it can also be used as a course marketplace or multi instructor online school.

The plugin is lightweight enough to handle niche sites with low course enrollments, while also powering huge universities and employee training in Fortune 500 corporations. We’ve even worked with a site that has over 730,000 course enrollments.

Unlike hosted LMS software where you would pay increasing monthly fees for access and growth, LifterLMS does not charge you more per course. LifterLMS also does not charge you more per instructor or per student or based on your revenue.

Whether you are going big or keeping it small, LifterLMS scales to meet your needs for online courses, memberships, training portals, or remote schools.

What Others Are Saying About LifterLMS

“I’ve used a number of course creation and delivery platforms over the years. And they were all fine… right up to the day when they weren’t. The trouble is, they all want you to package and manage your course the way THEY think you should do it. THEIR feature set. THEIR way to do it. Now I host all my courses on LifterLMS. TOTALLY different experience, because I’m free to do things MY way. I’ve never yet hit a wall where LifterLMS didn’t enable me to do things the way I wanted. Love it! Great support and community too.”

Nick Usborne, Teacher, Entrepreneur

WP101.com은 30,000명 이상의 회원에게 서비스를 제공하고 있습니다. 따라서 새 멤버십 플러그인으로 마이그레이션하는 것은 쉬운 일이 아닙니다. 우리는 마침내 LifterLMS(멤버십 플러그인과 LMS 플러그인이 하나로 결합됨)를 발견하기 전에 수십 개의 LMS 및 멤버십 플러그인을 신중하게 평가하는 데 1년 이상을 보냈습니다. 코스 생성 및 회원 기능에 대한 모든 확인란을 선택한 유일한 플러그인이었습니다. 또한 LifterLMS 팀은 더 나은 온라인 학습 경험을 만들기 위한 우리의 열정을 공유합니다. 특히 오늘날 대부분의 온라인 과정에는 없는 온라인 학습에 대한 인간의 손길을 복원하려는 그들의 목표에 깊이 공감합니다.”

숀 헤스케스, 대표, WP101

“As a former School Teacher, professional User Experience Designer, and current online course creator – I can honestly attribute much of our success to LifterLMS and it’s consideration for multiple learning modalities, the LMS UI/UX out of the box, and natural student Engagement opportunities. In less than 10 months we’ve gone from $0 to $300K in revenue with LifterLMS playing a huge part in that!! I’m looking forward to everything that comes next from the creators of LifterLMS!!”

사라 로렌젠, 교사, 사업가

“LifterLMS has been the best decision we have made towards the build out of our course library, online Learning Management System site, and community. The breadth and depth of what LifterLMS offers in a few WordPress plugins exceeds anything else we evaluated as it includes: easy course construction, integrated eCommerce, community capabilities, gamification and the support for delivery of 1-on-1 coaching collaboration services. Lifter also has pre-built integrations with other key WordPress technologies we wanted to use. LifterLMS has attracted a solid community and support network of leading experts to help guide anyone who wants to transform the world or their industry with online training. Chris and the Lifter team are real people, and they care.”

마이클 울프, CEO, emPowering NOW LLC (Golden XPR)

“I bought/installed LifterLMS yesterday then spent the day having a blast! Two years ago I started writing a book, which morphed into wanting to present the material online in a more interactive way. I started my website from scratch in January and installing the WordPress LMS plugin was a milestone moment! A milestone moment that turned out to be one joy right after the other! I’m always amazed when something is made easy! The LifterLMS product is amazing!! Power to the people! Really quite extraordinary to have something so helpful be able to be in the hands of regular folk.”

I'm really enjoying this plugin. It is easy to use the interface to build the course outline, and there are nice options for designing each lesson (for example, there's the flexibility of integrating a gallery or a PDF viewer into the lesson page. I found the student notifications a little difficult to set up, but that's because I did not watch the free course before I started, which I recommend anyone to do. It will save you time. It also works in other languages, like in my case; Hebrew, and they have great support. So yes, 5 stars!
2023년 4월 27일
The team's passion for the product really shined through in the presentation, and I couldn't help but feel energized and inspired by their dedication and expertise. After watching the demo videos and the Zoom call, I'm really excited to learn more about this product and how it can make a positive impact in my life.

Outstanding software and support! This LMS has everything you need to start, grow, and scale. I have clients on this from 2-500 students. Many of which add their own lessons and courses, I rarely get calls for an issue or for something someone can't easily find on the Lifter website. Support is outstanding, and responsive, and they have the answers!

v7.0.0 – 2022-10-04

New Features

  • Added handling for admin settings options that store their option values in a nested array.
  • Added new AJAX checkout and payment source switching endpoints for payment gateways to utilize instead of the preexisting synchronous form submission methods.
  • On purchase completed retrieve the redirection URL from the INPUT_POST ‘redirect’ variable, if no ‘redirect’ variable is passed via INPUT_GET. The INPUT_POST ‘redirect’ variable comes from the new checkout form’s hidden field ‘redirect’ populated with LLMS_Access_Plan::get_redirection_url(). #2229

Updates and Enhancements

  • Full Site Editing: [BREAKING] The wrappers in the custom header and footer templates have been changed to the semantic HTML tags <header> and <footer> in favor of default <div> tags. #2281
  • When an order post is restored from the trash its post status will now be “llms-pending” in favor of the default “draft” status.

Bug Fixes

  • Fixed unclosed checkout div wrapper on empty cart. #2277
  • Don’t attempt to lookup the default payment gateway from user meta data.
  • Fixed required fields duplication when the form is a child of a .wp-block-column element. #2134
  • Fixed an issue that prevented disabling the access plan’s option, Override Membership Redirects, once enabled. #2234
  • Disabled scroll-behavior: smooth on checkout screen to address form element validity checking issues on Chromium-based browsers. #2206


  • Deprecated LLMS_Controller_Orders::switch_payment_source() in favor of LLMS_Controller_Checkout::switch_payment_source().
  • Deprecated the lifterlms_update_option_{$type} action in favor of the llms_update_option_{$type} filter.
  • Method LLMS_Controller_Orders::confirm_pending_order() is deprecated in favor of LLMS_Controller_Checkout::confirm_pending_order().
  • Method LLMS_Controller_Orders::create_pending_order() is deprecated in favor of LLMS_Controller_Checkout::create_pending_order().
  • Method LLMS_Controller_Orders::switch_payment_source() is deprecated in favor of LLMS_Controller_Checkout::switch_payment_source().
  • Passing jQuery selections into the window.LLMS.Spinner functions is deprecated. Use JS Elements or selection strings parseable by document.querySelector() instead.
  • Deprecated hook llms_{$method}_title in favor of llms_{$method}_refund_title.

Developer Notes

  • Added admin settings helper function, llms_get_dashicon_link(), intended to enable the addition of external resource helper links to settings field descriptions.
  • The LLMS_Student object can be instantiated as an empty object and bypass current user autoloading. In the future this may affect integrations using the lifterlms_new_pending_order action hook which will receive an “empty” student object during order setup by gateways utilizing new AJAX-powered checkout endpoints.
  • Added a filter, llms_gateway_{$this->id}_logging_enabled, which will allow force enabling/disabling of gateway logging functions.
  • Improved payment gateway secure string logging by adding a method, add_secure_string() allowing developers to add secure strings during runtime without the necessity of registering the strings using filters.
  • Introduces new function llms_is_option_secure() for determining if an “secured” option is defined in a “secure” manner.
  • Implemented new gateway feature: modify_recurring_payments. #2176
  • Added two new parameters to LLMS_Access_Plan::get_redirection_url() – $encode to optionally get a raw (not encoded) URL. – $querystring_only to optionally get only the redirect URL if set via NPUT_GET variable.
  • Added new parameter $querystring_only to the filter hook llms_plan_get_checkout_redirection.
  • Admin settings fields now display after_html for additional field types which support desc.
  • The CSS for .llms-spinning and .llms-spinner elements is no longer loaded as part of the lifterlms.css and admin.css files, instead it is loaded dynamically when window.LLMS.Spinner functions are called. In some cases CSS overrides to these elements which relied on CSS rule load order may no longer successfully override the default CSS rules. These overrides may need to be updated to have more specific selectors in order to ensure the overrides are retained.
  • The Javascript object, window.LLMS.Spinner, has been converted to a module accessible from the same variable.
  • The window.LLMS.Spinner methods now accept JS Elements and selector strings parseable by document.querySelector() in addition to jQuery selections.
  • Added new filter llms_transaction_can_be_refunded enabling custom refund restrictions to be applied to a transaction.
