We’re incredibly pleased and overwhelmed that you have chosen a theme from RadiantThemes for your website. We're sure you won’t be disappointed! Here, we outline all types of the necessary information and provide you with all the essential details you require for using the theme. Our themes can only be used with WordPress and we presume that you already have WordPress installed and ready to go.
We recommend using a cPanel or Plesk based hosting from a renowned hosting service provider. Many low-cost providers provide their custom web-based panel which most of the time don’t have the required configuration to run websites smoothly.
We recommend using Siteground.com for any hosting related need. Order plain cPanel based hosting. Don’t order just WordPress Hosting from any hosting provider. WordPress hosting has lots of limitation and you might not be able to accomplish everything.
Ideally cPanel, Plesk driven control panels work seamlessly. Also, make sure that your provider uses the latest version of PHPMyAdmin. The older version of PHP and PHPMyAdmin might not support.
We can troubleshoot and help, if you use cPanel, Plesk, Webmin, web panel, zpanel types of control panel. Also, when you ask for our help, please consider sending control panel access. Only FTP access might not be sufficient always.

You could also add a new lesson by reaching to LearnPress > Lessons. This is where all lessons are managed. It will give you details about each and every lesson in your system. If you try to add lessons this way, you won’t be able to assign the lesson you created to a course right away. You will then need to go to LearnPress > Courses > Edit a course or create a new course to assign the lesson to that course.
