Version 3.0.3 of Memberlite theme is out with a handful of bug fixes and enhancements. We also fixed a bug with our update server that was causing issues with automatic updates. So if you were having trouble updating before, it may work now.


About the Update

Memberlite is still free to download and update, and we still plan to move the plugin into the WordPress.org repository. Many of the bug fixes in this update were part of the theme repository review process, however there is still work to be done before we can do that. The theme repository has strict rules on what kinds of functionality can be included in themes and what kinds of functionality are “plugin territory”.

The custom sidebars and post banner functions of Memberlite need to be moved into their own plugins. The bad news is that this will take some time and force Memberlite users at some point to install and activate those plugins, although we’ll do our best to make installing those plugins as easy as possible. The good news is that users of other themes will be able to take advantage of that functionality.


If you are running an edited version of Memberlite or Memberlite with a child theme, please update the theme from the updates page of your WordPress dashboard. You can also get the latest version of Memberlite here.
