Changing a Lesson or Topic Title/Name
This page will explain how to change the title or name of a LearnDash lesson (module) or topic. This will change the name of the lesson as it is displayed in the course outline both on the course homepage and in the sidebar. Note that while this page will use the term “Lesson”, the same process applies to Topics exactly — just substitute “Topic” anywhere “Lesson” is encountered. Recall that the LearnDash course hierarchy is as follows: Course > Lesson > Topic.
1. Go to the lesson (or topic’s) edit page
Method 1: go to LearnDash LMS > Lessons > and click “Classic Editor” under the lesson of interest and click “Classic Editor”
Method 2: while logged in as admin, navigate directly to the lesson and click “Edit Lesson” in the black toolbar at the top of the page
2. Confirm page opened correctly
Important: if the page has a “Download Center” (like this example — see above screenshot), there is special HTML making the buttons. To avoid deleting the HTML, the page MUST be loading in TEXT EDITOR (not Visual Editor).
3. Change page’s name and save
In the title box at the top of the page (directly under “Edit Lesson”), you will see the current page name displayed. Enter the new desired name in this box. When you are finished, click the blue “Update” button in the right sidebar to save your work. The page will now be renamed.
