Adding WooCommerce Memberships Restriction Notice Merge Tags

We got an interesting question this week from a developer: Is there a way to show Membership Plan Names in a “content restricted” notice instead of products to buy? In this case, the site wasn’t selling Memberships, but rather taking applications for them, so the plan names made more sense. This question can show us a couple interesting concepts today to look at: (1) creating a helper method to get Keep Reading…

Repeating a Fixed Date Membership with WooCommerce Memberships

Howdy and happy new year, folks! The new year partly inspired this Memberships post, as an year cycle ends, and it’s likely that many of you Memberships users might have set up membership plans that are a year long. But how about plans that are set to start exactly on the 1st of January of any given year? Since fixed dates memberships were introduced in version 1.7.0 there is the Keep Reading…

WooCommerce Memberships 1.7: Member emails, New Plan Options, and more

WooCommerce Memberships is over one year old now! We launched the plugin in June 2015 and has been a big hit ever since, rapidly becoming one of the most popular WooCommerce extensions. We are happy to announce that Memberships 1.7.0 has been deployed, just a couple months later than Memberships’s birthday. This release represents the largest update since the first version!

WooCommerce Memberships: Import and Export Members

It’s been a busy 2-weeks at SkyVerge as we rolled out a compatibility update for all our extensions to make sure they support the new WooCommerce 2.6. This type of release usually packs no features, perhaps just minor tweaks or bugfixes at most, since we need to focus on compatibility with the newest WooCommerce version. This also helps us ensure nothing breaks in installations using an older version (we normally support the latest three Keep Reading…

Creating WooCommerce Memberships Menus for Members

One of our popular Woo Ideas for Memberships is the ability to create a menu for members. We’d examined this for version one of the plugin, but we weren’t crazy about included a lot of the commonly used menu restrictions in the core plugin, so it wasn’t included at launch. We also know that a lot of memberships sites have role-based menu restrictions in place to begin with, such as Keep Reading…

Limiting Members to One Membership with WooCommerce Memberships

When we built WooCommerce Memberships, one of the biggest requests we had from our surveys and beta testers was to build a plugin that would allow customers to have as many memberships as they wanted to purchase. This became one of the major decisions we made in the initial version, and any customer can have 0 or more memberships. However, some shops want to limit the number of memberships a Keep Reading…

Create a “My Memberships” section shortcode with WooCommerce Memberships

Today’s question comes from Scott: Can I use or create a shortcode to have the “My Memberships” area outside of the “My Account” page? In other words, if I wanted to place My Memberships on a page other than the default /my-account page, would I be able to do that? This is an interesting question, as you could add the “My Memberships” table to a custom page on your site, Keep Reading…

Add a custom Member Area section in WooCommerce Memberships

WooCommerce Memberships 1.5 has been recently released. This release consisted of a compatibility release that added support for WooCommerce 2.5, and also included a number of minor tweaks and bug fixes (see here for the complete Memberships changelog). Soon we will begin work on the next release to introduce new features! Meanwhile, here’s another post about the Member Area, a feature introduced in Memberships 1.4 early last December. This component creates Keep Reading…

WooCommerce Memberships: Check for any active membership

WooCommerce Memberships is designed to allow stores to have as many membership plans as desired, and in turn lets you allow customers to have more than one membership. The plugin has conditional checks that allow you determine if a customer / user is an active member of a particular plan, as this only requires the plan ID or slug. However, checking to see if a customer / user is an Keep Reading…
