This post recaps the Paid Memberships Pro Add Ons updated in the last two months.

How to Update PMPro Add Ons

Navigate to Dashboard > Updates in the WordPress admin to update Add Ons in your membership site. A valid license is required to update some of our premium Add Ons. Be sure to backup your site before performing updates and always update one plugin at a time so that you can isolate upgrade issues.

Development Changelog for Add On Updates and Release Notes

Add Name to Checkout Add On

  • BUG: Fixed error when PHP short tags is disabled.
  • BUG: Fixed some warnings.
  • BUG: Fixed issue where first and last name were being “blanked out” when logged in users checked out again.

Donations Add On

  • BUG: Fixed bug where donation dropdown amount was not set correctly when returning from PayPal to review. (Thanks, lok1728 on GitHub)
  • BUG: Fixed bug where donation amount was not being passed correctly to PayPal.
  • Added support for PayPal express by saving donation amount into a session variable.

Email Confirmation Add On

  • ENHANCEMENT: Now also filtering pmpro_has_membership_level to users who aren’t confirmed won’t see content hidden via shortcodes or pmpro_hasMembershipLevel().

Extra Expiration Warning Emails Add On

  • ENHANCEMENT: Added pmproeewe_email_frequency_and_templates template to adjust the array of email frequencies and templates via filters instead of editing the plugin.

Import Users from CSV Integration

  • BUG/ENHANCEMENT: Deleting previous import user meta before an import. We don’t want to process old import data if the same user is imported twice with different columns.
  • BUG/ENHANCEMENT: Setting a membership_code_id column now adds the code_id to the pmpro_memberships_users table and also inserts a row into pmpro_discount_code_uses.
  • ENHANCEMENT: Can now set a column with heading membership_discount_code to set the code used for a certain member. It must be an existing discount code to work.

Mailchimp Add On

Our Mailchimp integration had a large update to version 2.0. The plugin now synchronizes the member’s level name and level ID for improved list targeting, building list groups and segments based on level.

Once you update to version 2.0 or higher, this information will be added for all new subscribers. Read the full update information here.

Membership Card Add On

  • BUG: Include private as well as published posts/pages in searches for the page/post containing the member card shortcode
  • BUG: Didn’t use valid WP_User object when adding u= query parameter.
  • ENHANCEMENT: Add class to locate a post/page based on content (i.e. a shortcode)
  • ENHANCEMENT: Use built-in shortcode search function has_shortcode()
  • ENHANCEMENT: Use pmpro_posts_by_content::get() to search/find. Uses WP_Query & includes support for WP caching

Sponsored/Group Members Add On

  • ENHANCEMENT: Moved some code from after checkout method into a pmprosm_createSponsorCode($user_id, $level_id, $uses = "") so it can be used elsewhere.
  • ENHANCEMENT: Added integration with Import Users From CSV so you can set a pmprosm_sponsor column (to a user ID, user email, or user login). If set, a sponsor code will be created for the sponsoring user (if needed) and the sponsored user will be setup as a child account.
  • BUG: Fixed bug where “seats” user meta was not updated sometimes at checkout.
  • BUG: Fixed bug where no new discount code was created if a user’s old code had been deleted and the id was still linked to the user.
  • FEATURE: Can now have multiple parent levels pointing to the same child levels.

WP Affiliate Platform Integration

  • BUG: Checking ->subtotal if ->total is not set for an order to make sure the order has a value.
