If you're using LearnDash as your LMS, the Uncanny LearnDash Toolkit is almost a necessity. I've installed it on every single LearnDash project I've worked on, including my own. There are 15 features in the free version alone (the pro version includes an additional 20+ awesome features), my favorite of which are: Login/Logout Links make it super-easy to set up a conditional menu, especially when combined with the Menu Item Visibility feature, which lets you show/hide menu items to users based on their login status The "Resume" button is a great feature to let users go back to the last lesson they were working on (regardless of which course it was in) Login/Logout Redirects provide a simple way to control where users go when they login & logout of your site The User Switching feature allows you to login as a specific user and experience your site the way they experience it. Great for troubleshooting. On top of great features, Uncanny Owl has been in the LearnDash space longer than anyone else. They've built enterprise-level, custom LearnDash sites for clients, and have been providing amazing support for their LearnDash plugins for years. They're a truly awesome, helpful team who understands the needs of LearnDash users, and they deliver top-notch products.

This plugin contains so many mini-plugins it should cost 10x the price for what you get. It makes using LearnDash 100% better and the Uncanny Pro plugin is much easier to use than LearnDash itself. On top of that the support is super quick and friendly, and most importantly they are able to articulate and explain VERY well. A must have for any site running LearnDash.

The free version has great functionality, and the developers were very responsive when I had a potential security concern (that turned out to be my error with mishandling https). Strongly recommended.

This review is based purely on my experience with using this plug-in (and using it in combination with the pro version). Aside from all the potentially useful features this plug-in offers, I noticed one unavoidable truth. It dramatically slows down the performance of my site. My simple test is this. Run the site with the plug-in activated and my chosen settings in place, as they pertain to my LMS. Note of the response time of pages, while navigating around in the LMS. Then, deactivate the plug-in- and note the response time of the same LMS pages. My observation has been that everything takes significantly longer to load while using the uncanny toolkit plugin. Admittedly I don't know every aspect of everything that is involved in this process. But I do know that it's slower when I use this plug-in, making its usability questionable for me. Has anybody else experienced this issue?
