How to connect an external website or a link on your site or menu to course checkout page built on Knorish?


Knorish is an all-in-one platform that offers the complete tech stack that one would need to build and scale their online academies. However, there can be situations wherein creators may not want to build a new website with Knorish and wish to continue with their existing websites.

To achieve this, one simply needs the link to add the course sign up to the enroll now/ buy now button on their existing websites that may be built on WordPress etc.

This article will show you how to find out that URL so that you can connect your external website pages to Knorish checkout functionality. Follow the steps below:

How to connect an external website or a link on your site

  • Log in to your site and access the courses section in the dashboard.
  • Click on the name of the course that needs to be connected to your site.
  • As shown in the image, copy the course ID from the URL. This is the unique course ID assigned to the course.

Note:  All published courses created on Knorish are assigned a unique course ID. This unique course ID can be found in the courses section.
