Using Dynamic Text for OptimizeMentor Courses

Dynamic text is basically using something which already exists so that you don’t have to type it again. Things like Course Title, Current Title, Course Summary, and other options are all available to use within headlines, text, buttons, and other text elements. All you have to do is highlight the text and then choose whether to use data from WordPress or OptimizeMentor.

The OptimizeMentor option is available while editing course content within the course builder. 

For example, here is a sample of what you would choose if you want your headline element to pull in the
Current Title from the OptimizeMentor lesson that is being edited. 

In the above image, you can also see the text above the title also has the
Course Title. On the right (image above), you see the Current Title again, as well as lesson summary (Current Summary).

This information is pulled in from the “Edit Details” screen where you created the course content:

You can edit the title, summary, and duration on this screen (for lessons). Note that Course and Module content does not have a duration as that is only for individual lessons

When you create course content, and use our templates from the “Add New Course Content” screen, all the templates will have these dynamic settings already populated so this content is already pulled in, making the content creation process much quicker so you can focus on more important tasks.

How to Use Dynamic Options in Your Own Templates

If you like to build your own pages and not use our templates, then you might wonder how to sue the dynamic text options. 

  1. First you would need to highlight the text. This can be in a text element, headline element, button text, or within any other elements that have text options.
  2. Then click the database icon
  3. Click the Data Category Dropdown
  4. Then just choose “OptimizeMentor” 
  5. Then choose the Data Option that you want for the text, in this case “Current Title” pulls in the Lesson Title
