Now Available: SPMS Version 2.7

Posted on Jan 10, 2020

Version 2.7 of Simple:Press Member Subscriptions is now available. It includes more than two dozen fixes and tweaks. Here are some of the highlights:

Approvals Enhancements

With this release we are providing a bit more control over roles and when users need to be approved before they can use their membership.

You can now set which role a user will get when they are pending approval. This allows you set them to a role to deny them all site access until after approval.

You can also set them to a different role if they are not approved.

Roles and Approvals Integration

The ROLES component is now a little more aware of the APPROVALS component and will not switch the roles on a user until AFTER they have been approved. Assuming, of course, the approvals have been enabled on a membership level.

Enhanced MEMBERS Screen

This screen now uses the native WordPress LIST TABLE functionality. This means that you can now sort most columns and use the screen options to add or remove columns.

Additional Enhancements

Developer Related Enhancements

We added few more hooks/filters that developers can use:

spms_approvals_level_requires_approval – used to filter the result of the SPMS_Approvals::requiresApproval() method

Filters: spms_is_level_free, spms_is_level_trial, and spms_is_level_expiring.


More than two dozen fixes are available. Check out the file for the details.
