About the Add On

The Approvals Add On for Paid Memberships Pro allows you to set up a unique approval or application process for your membership site. After a member signs up, the Admin, Membership Manager, or new Approver roles will have the ability to approve their membership or deny the application. You can configure the Add On in a variety of ways to best suit your membership site needs, such as collecting an application fee or requiring members to move through a flow of levels to get approved and accepted.

About the Update

Andrew Lima spearheaded this group of changes and focused on tightening up a few bugs related to content displaying for members in the pending status that should have been hidden. He also completely overhauled how email notifications were coded to allow for a tighter integration between this Add On and the Email Templates Admin Editor Add On. You can view details on each email sent by this Add On and what template variables are available in the documentation page here.

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.

Thanks, Andrew!
