Personalize Your Online Courses with these Powerful New Menu Features

If you offer an online course using WordPress, then you have everything you need to craft the perfect personalized menu for your students.

To help you take your course-based business to the next level, we’ve added 3 powerful features to Thrive Apprentice:

  1. Display different menu items for logged in and logged out users
  2. Dynamically display users’ profile images
  3. Dynamically display users’ names

Each of these features can be used on their own, or in combination, to create a professional and personalized membership-style environment for each and every customer.

Dynamic personalization offers real benefits for both course creators and students:

  1. It immediately communicates a professional approach to membership-focused content.
  2. Students and members are likely to feel reassured that they’re in the right place when they see their name and profile image.
  3. It improves usability with a clear sign that someone is logged in or out.
  4. A profile image is becoming the industry standard icon for where your users can find their account page, settings and billing details.
  5. It’s a bold claim but I’ll wager that people simply EXPECT to see their user profiles reflected in the online products and services they buy.

So strap in: you’re going to hear the words dynamic and personalized a lot in this post, and you’re going to LOVE it!
