wp-Member v3.0.RC1 Released

We have released a new version of our WordPress Membership Plugin wp-Member. This latest version includes many minor and major bugfixes. It has been extensively tested with wordpress 3.0. If you experience any issues, please contact our support team by clicking on the support link at the top of every page of our website.

Changelog

  • CSS – All css has been moved from various files and added to css files within the css folder. This will provide much better control for users who wish to customize the css manually.
  • Trial Users – Some trial registrations were not adding the correct subscription length to members accounts. This has now been corrected.
  • Registration Page – Overlay image was incorrectly displaying border. This has now been corrected.
  • Upgrade/Downgrade – This option was failing to correctly add members subscription details to their accounts. This has now been corrected.
  • Paypal Payments – Previously, when a new member registers for a paid account, they were presented with 2-3 screens. We have completely shortened this process right down to just a single page. When a new member registers on your registration page, they will be sent to paypal as soon as they click on the “register” button. By reducing the number of clicks a new member has to make, we are making it much easier for people to use as well as increasing the probability of new members completing registration and making their payment.

wp-Member 3.0 and WordPress 3.0

we are presently running a battery of tests with the latest stable release of wordpress 3.0. Over the past few weeks and months we have been testing wp-member v3.0 with the beta releases of wordpress v3.0 so that when the stable version of wordpress 3.0 was released, we could again run tests. This is because the stable release of wordpress will have changes in it that were not in beta releases. As such we are unable to test our plugin against these changes until they have made the stable release.
As a rule of thumb, most blog owners will not immediately upgrade to a wordpress stable release. This is because while it is classified as “stable”, it will have many bugs that will be found and fixed within the first two weeks. You can see this with any new release of a wordpress version, within a few weeks a secondary release will be made to fix the bugs in the initial release.
Leaving this period of time before updating not only ensures that you are using the best version of wordpress, it also gives plugin developers a chance to ensure they have ironed out any issues with their plugin. Some plugins as yet have not been tested with the latest version, others that have been tested with the latest version and updated, will likely need to be updated once again when the next bug fix version of wordpress is released.
For the time being, we are advising clients to use wordpress v2.9.2 along with wp-member v3.0.beta4 as these two versions have been extensively tested together. Shortly, we will be releasing wp-Member v3.0 as soon as we have completed testing and altering it to work seamlessly with the latest stable version of wordpress as well as the upcoming bugfix release of wordpress.
