  1. Login to the WordPress admin

You can configure Favorite Content by going to LearnDash > Settings > Favorite Content

Configuring Favorite Content is simple! You have two major decisions to make:

What content can users favorite?

This is controlled by the “Enable On” setting. This setting lists out every type of content on your site. Simply select which content you’d like users to be able to favorite.

Where should the favorite button appear?

Your next decision is where and how you’d like the favorite button to appear on your site. You can have it automatically appear above or below the content of any enabled content type by selecting the corresponding setting.

If you’d like to add the button to pages or your site manually, you can do so through the [favorite_button] shortcode. Simply copy and paste that shortcode into a page, or add it to a text widget in your sidebar or your navigation with a plugin like Shortcode in Menus.


Easily change the styling by selecting a new accent color or entering a numerical value for your desired border radius.

IMPORTANT NOTE: For no rounded corners, simply put a negative number
