Use Legacy API Keys with the Stripe Payment Gateway

Stripe Connect is now the default and preferred method to connect your Stripe account with your Paid Memberships Pro site.

Some sites, however, may be required to use the API Key method to set up the Stripe Gateway. This guide demonstrates how to use the pmpro_stripe_show_legacy_keys_settings filter to add back the settings fields for Publishable Key and Secret Key.

Include Current Free Members With a Past Paid Level in the Filtered Members List View

When a member cancels or expires, they are shown on the Members List when filtering by Cancelled, Expired, or Old Members. Some membership sites, though, are set up to downgrade paid members to a free level on cancellation or expiration. For these sites, members with a previous paid level are not considered old, cancelled, or expired anymore.

Admins may still want to see those users on the “Old Members” list, highlighting the members for a win-back campaign to resubscribe to a paid membership. This code does that.
