Version 1.8.9.3 of Paid Memberships Pro is out with a handful of bug fixes. One bug in particular was introduced in 1.8.9.2 and breaks the setting of start and end dates when members checkout. This means memberships with expiration dates were giving indefinite memberships to users.

The update repairs this bug and includes a script that will fix affected member records. Be sure to back up your database before fixing and manually check your members list to verify end dates after running the script.


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 1.8.9.3 specifically here.


The full list of updates is below.

  • BUG: Fixed bug introduced in 1.8.9.2 where member start and end dates weren’t being set correctly. Includes an update script to fix past users affected by this.
  • BUG: Fixed warnings on new order page in the dashboard.
  • BUG/ENHANCEMENT: Fixed the pmpro_checkout_default_submit_button() methods of the PayPal Express to no longer check if the current gateway is a paypal one. The method is only called when the gateway is loaded anyway or when another addon (e.g. the pmpro-pay-by-check addon) adds the hook.
  • BUG/ENHANCEMENT: Moved check instructions code into the check gateway class so it can be overriden by addons (e.g. an update to the pmpro-pay-by-check addon).

I updated to 1.8.9.3 to fix the expiry issue and now none of my users can log in? I had to do a restore job from backup to restore 1.8.9.2 so my subscribers could log in. Stressful…..

I don’t know if this is related, but after I did the the upgrade, it cancelled the memberships of my 2 most recent 6 month memberships (people who had paid in full for 6 months yesterday, had access and then received an email that their membership was canceled)… it may not be related but I thought it couldn’t hurt to let you know.

Please give me a link to download 1.8.9.2 again. The new update completely broke my online dating site. I had it setup with Sweet Date theme and now the restricted access for certain pages is just a redirect to a 404 page now instead of the memberships page.
