This is an important update for PayPal (all flavors) users and includes better handling of cancellations.

Please update the Paid Memberships Pro from the plugins page of your WordPress dashboard. You can also get the latest version of PMPro here or version 1.7.9 specifically here.

All Updates in This Release:

  • Updated PayPal Express/Standard/WPP gateways to throw an error when trying to cancel a subscription that is in pending or suspended status. A warning is shown to the user to contact the site owner or cancel the subscription through PayPal. The WP admin should also get an email about the failure. In the future, there may be a better way to handle these situations automatically, but PayPal doesn’t advise how to “cancel” pending subscriptions.
  • Added optional $membership_id parameter to getLastMemberOrder() method of the MemberOrder class. So you can get the last member order of a specific level.
  • Added Slovakian translation. (Thanks, Peter Belko)
  • Added WP capabilities for each PMPro settings or report page. Admins are given these caps on plugin activation. Or you can set up other roles to use these caps. E.g.

After the update people who try to subscribe with “@hotmail” aren’t receiving the confirmation email. Do you know why that might be? I already try to deactivate and activate the plugin but it didn’t work.

I am not sure. There isn’t anything in the PMPro code to keep @hotmail emails from going out. Check if the lost password email is going out to those addresses as well. You probably have to follow up with your host to make sure the spam filter or any other limits are taking affect. Using one of the “SMTP” plugins like Configure SMTP will help get around this.

I updated and now the section that used to be at the top where I could view my site as admin, or whatever membership level I wanted is gone. I have also been changing between some different themes but even if I go back to the theme I was using when I installed your plug-in I still don’t have that option in my header anymore. Is this a bug with the update or something that I’ve managed to screw up somehow?
