Help! I can’t generate the pages for Paid Memberships Pro!

The second step of Paid Memberships Pro setup is to manage the WordPress pages assigned to each required Paid Memberships Pro page under Memberships > Page Settings.

If you get to this step and don’t see the link to “let us generate them for you”, here’s how to troubleshoot or create the pages manually.


Did you move the pages to trash?

The #1 reason this link is missing is that someone, at some point created the pages then “deleted” them. If the pages “Membership Account, “Membership Billing”, etc. are in Pages > All Pages > Trash, click the “Restore” link for each page. The previously generated pages should now be assigned under Memberships > Page Settings.


If you don’t find the pages in the trash, here’s the manual process to create, configure, and assign the required Paid Memberships Pro pages.

Create Your Pages

Under Pages > Add New, create the following pages with the following shortcodes in the page text. You can name these pages, set up their template or hierarchy however you want.

Page Name (suggested) Required Shortcode
Membership Account [pmpro_account]
Membership Billing [pmpro_billing]
Membership Cancel [pmpro_cancel]
Membership Checkout [pmpro_checkout]
Membership Confirmation [pmpro_confirmation]
Membership Invoice [pmpro_invoice]
Membership Levels [pmpro_levels]

Assign the Pages

  1. Navigate to Memberships > Page Settings.
  2. For each required Paid Memberships Pro page, select the page you created in the dropdown list.
  3. Save the settings.
