For global course settings that will be applied to every course on the site navigate to
Dashboard >> LearnDash LMS >> Course >> Settings.
You will find the following options:
1) Global Course Management and Display Settings – Control settings for course creation and visual organization.
Course Builder – Manage all Lesson, Topic, and Quiz associations within the Course Builder. This option allows you to enable/disable course builder. We recommend keeping it enabled if you want to reuse steps across multiple courses.
If a course builder is enabled you will get the following two options:
Steps Displayed – Allows you to set a number of items that will display before pagination.
Shared Course Steps – Share steps (lessons, topics, quizzes) across multiple courses. Progress is maintained on a per-course basis.
Note: Enabling this option will also enable the nested permalinks setting.
Course Table Pagination – Customize the pagination options for all courses content tables and courses navigation widgets.
Note: Individual course display settings will override this setting. Also, by default, it will use LearnDash general settings if this option will be disabled.
Lesson and Topic Order – Customize the display order of lessons and topics.
Sort By – Allows you to sort by menu order, date and title.
Order Direction – You will get a drop down to select from either ascending or descending.
