    I just purchased the plugin. Is there any way I could make the first lessons free then the rest are paid? For LearnDash they call it 'sample lesson' but I cannot seem to see a setting like this?

    What is the difference between wordpress and bluehost?

  • Ryan Lin on July 24, 2021

    is it enough to use bluehost for an online course website?
    I've heard if you have shopping function and even online course function on your site you might want to use VPS as your server to make it more stable.

    Thanks, #WPBeginner When you have a site all ready, and you want to create a course do I need to have a subdomain to install the plugin?

  • M P on December 7, 2021

    Hi – would I need to add a plugin indicating course/website under construction before working on setting up the website and adding material?
