Version 1.8.9.1 of Paid Memberships Pro is out with some important bug fixes for users of Stripe. One bug in particular may have corrupted recurring orders on your site. These orders will appear without a user_id or membership_id in the orders list or database tables.


Before You Update

This update includes a fix for the bug and an update script that will repair the corrupted orders. Please backup your database before running the update script. Updates not fixed by the script will be marked with the status “error”. You can filter the orders list by status to find these and perhaps fix them manually.

We’ve also overhauled the orders CSV export. There is still some scaling work to be done to make sure the members list and orders CSV exports will work for any number of orders on any size server, but this update performs much much better than previous versions and will error out less often.


There are also a handful of other fixes from a few different contributors.

Thanks everyone for your help.


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 1.8.9.1 specifically here.
