Remove Progress\Completion bar

Is it possible to remove the progress and completion bar on the menu?

I am using RISE as a reference training manual, with the aim for experienced members of the our engineering team to quickly access sections relevant to them.  Therefore this wont be use as a traditional training course, so doesn't require this functionallity.

There are a few options in the course settings that are configurable:

  • Marking Lessons Complete - Set to off doesn't affect the completion bar
  • Lesson Count Labels- Set to off. However this only affects the labels. 

I can change the labels within the theme, but this is not an ideal solution.

Any thoughts or alternative ideas are much appreciated.

Hi Martin,

I believe the only way to remove the progress indicator would be to turn off the sidebar in its entirety. You might be able to recreate some functionality by having buttons on an intro page, kind of like a branching scenario as described here.

The downside of turning off the sidebar is that users would lose the ability to search. To me, the decision would depend entirely on the amount of content. If it's short, I'd lean toward the "branching scenario" set up. If it's long, I'd keep the progress bar.

If you haven't already, I'd submit a feature request to turn off just that one piece of the sidebar.
