Welcome! My name is Leland Fiegel, also known as “the LMSCoder.”
You might recognize me from WordPress and LearnDash help groups online, such as the LearnDash LMS Tips & Tricks Facebook group.
In groups like that, I volunteer my time to help people with their websites by responding to WordPress and LearnDash questions.
As WordPress and LearnDash continue to grow, it seems like there’s an endless supply of questions!
The LMSCoder “Goal”
In 2007, I discovered a free, open source content management system called WordPress.
My first WordPress website was a salsa recipe website.
I wanted to display a random recipe on each page load, so I did a quick Google search for “how to display a random WordPress post.”
I found a small snippet of code, implemented it on my site, and voila: a random salsa recipe on each page load.
The helpful community and readily-available code snippets hooked me in.
With just a little bit of digging and some experimentation, I could do just about anything I wanted.
My ultimate goal with LMSCoder is to instill that same “can do anything” confidence in you (and your online course website).
As a “self-taught” web developer, I recognize the value of online learning.
You can go online, buy a course, and learn a valuable new skill without needing to leave your couch. I find that pretty incredible.
So, I’ve decided to focus my web development skills on helping others build their own online course websites.
More On My Background
I run a WordPress theme shop called Themetry where I serve as the sole developer of all the WordPress themes you see on the site.
While I have been working with WordPress since 2007, I have worked as a full-time, professional web developer for various agencies in the Washington, D.C. area since 2013.
In 2019, I quit my full-time job to focus on a few independent engagements, such as running the aforementioned theme shop business.
