Version 1.8.8.3 of Paid Memberships Pro is out with one important bug fix, especially for sites using our Series: Drip-Feed Content Add On or locking down files with Paid Memberships Pro. This fix has been backported into version 1.8.8.1 and 1.8.8.2, but you will still have to update your site to get the fix.


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 1.8.8.3 specifically here.


  • BUG: Fixed issue in pmpro_has_membership_access() that was causing issues on some sites, specifically sites running PMPro Series.

Hi Jason,
I read quite some posts about people struggling with pages redirecting to the levels page.
Currently my host is one.com ( hope it works well with pmpro???), I’ve asked them to disable php caching, still had redirects. Uninstalled pmpro, re-installed, deactivated all plugins, again un/installed, no difference…. used all the tricks I could find and think of.
Had lunch and a Stella beer, looked at it again, and yes! the Stella helped.
What solved the redirect problem wasn’t anything on the plugin side. In fact, the redirect is exactly what it’s supposed to do. Here’s why…
Since I created different user levels, the admin profile I was working with still had ‘subscriber’ level, and thus no authority to see any of the pages for member levels. I created an extra ‘all in one’ level (disabled subscribing to it), went to ‘members’, ‘admin’, ‘edit’, changed the level from subscriber to ‘all in one’. and voila!
Hope this helps someone else out there.
Kind greetings from Belgium!

Love PMPRO, great plugin!!

Thanks for posting here, and sorry you ran into this issue. We’ve actually just been discussing internally our decision (made about 5-6 years ago) to NOT give administrators access to member content unless they have a membership themselves.

In any case, we could possibly show admins a special message or something to give them a hint when this happens. Like, “Hey, you’re admin. You could just give yourself the correct membership or you can checkout like everyone else.” Something like that.
