Version 1.8.13.4 of Paid Memberships Pro is out with just one minor update. We have changed the shortcode for adding checkout buttons to Sign Up Now . View documentation on this shortcode »Development Changelog for Paid Memberships Pro Release Updates

Why the update?

This shortcode was written as Sign Up Now in the code and “checkout_button” on our website docs here. The PMPro Register Helper plugin had a similar “checkout_button” shortcode. We are using Sign Up Now to avoid conflicts with other shortcodes and be more clear about the purpose of the shortcode.

If you were using Sign Up Now before, that will continue to work. If you were using checkout_button before, that was either not working if you didn’t have Register Helper also activated or working if you did have Register Helper activated. In both cases, you should change your shortcodes to Sign Up Now .

Please update Paid Memberships Pro from the plugins page of your WordPress dashboard. You can also get the latest version of PMPro here or version 1.8.13.4 specifically here.


The full list of updates is below.

  • BUG/ENHANCEMENT: Changed the pmpro_button shortcode to pmpro_checkout_button. (The old pmpro_button will also still work. checkout_button works if you have Register Helper installed.)
