Paid Memberships Pro has released its latest version, 2.11, packed with new features, enhancements, and bug fixes to further improve the membership management experience. Let’s dive into the exciting changes this update brings.
Accessibility and Usability Improvements
This update includes several accessibility updates that came out of the audit performed by Alex Stine and Amber Hind for the WordPress Accessibility Meetup. We still have some other suggestions to work through, but made excellent progress thanks to the feedback from Alex and Amber. Thanks, Alex and Amber.
Some other updates in this release have come out of a usability audit performed by Piccia Neri. Again, there is still a lot for us to process from Piccia’s feedback, but we are very grateful for the contribution. Thanks, Piccia.
Thanks to the contributions from Piccia Neri, Alex Stine, and Amber Hinds, PMPro v2.11 offers improved accessibility across the entire admin dashboard. These enhancements ensure a more inclusive experience for all users.
Potential Spam User Tracking For Manual Deletion
PMPro now tracks users created during the checkout process but never complete the transaction or utilize the site. Admins can easily locate and delete these users directly from the Users Table in the admin dashboard, streamlining user management.

Compatibility with Oxygen Builder
Good news for Oxygen Builder users! PMPro v2.11 offers seamless compatibility with Oxygen Builder, ensuring smooth integration between the two plugins for building captivating membership sites.
Improved Orders and Discount Code Lists
The Orders and Discount Code lists have received updates to provide a better user experience. They now utilize the
WP_List_Table, offering enhanced functionality and easier navigation when managing orders and discount codes.
Out-of-Date Page Template Notice
PMPro now displays a helpful notice when a page template being used is outdated. This notification alerts administrators to consider updating their templates, ensuring optimal performance and compatibility.
To optimize performance, PMPro has reduced the number of calls made to
pmpro_getOption(). This enhancement results in improved efficiency and faster load times.
Customizable Account Page Section Titles
In response to user feedback, PMPro v2.11 introduces the ability to customize account page section titles. Admins can now tailor section titles to align with their site’s branding and design.
This improvement also has an accessibility component, allowing sites to add their own headings in the correct hierarchy based on the structure of their site.
Expanded Filters for Stripe Webhooks
PMPro now includes additional filters, namely
pmpro_stripe_webhook_before_exit. These filters allow for more fine-grained control and customization when working with Stripe webhooks.
Enhanced Add Ons Search
The Add Ons search functionality has been improved to support multiple keywords and phrases. This enhancement facilitates finding the desired add-ons quickly, simplifying the customization process.
Several bugs have been addressed in this update. Notable fixes include resolving issues with reCAPTCHA functions, ensuring they are always loaded, and fixing a bug where checkouts using Stripe could complete even if reCAPTCHA failed.
Refactoring for Optimization
PMPro v2.11 refactors certain code elements, removing a leading slash in all instances of
admin_url(). Additionally, an unused variable in
pmpro_rest_api_recent_memberships() has been eliminated, streamlining the codebase.
PMPro version 2.11 delivers an array of exciting features, enhancements, and bug fixes. With improved user tracking, enhanced compatibility, streamlined user interfaces, customizable sections, and various performance optimizations, PMPro continues to empower site administrators in managing their membership programs effectively. Upgrade to v2.11 today to unlock these fantastic improvements and take your membership site to new heights.
