This article gives you code and instructions to create a custom shortcode that can be used with the WP-Members User Tracking extension. It will display the last X number of pages the user visited. This can be useful for creating user dashboards on the User Profile shortcode page. (You can see an example of how it is used here.)
Note: you must have the WP-Members User Tracking extension installed to use this shortcode. [Read more…]
WP-Members 3.1.7 will be released Monday evening, April 3. There are some great improvements in the plugin that I am excited about, but if you are an existing user, there are some significant changes you should be aware of before blindly updating.
Note that there are no database changes updating to 3.1.7 from any flavor of 3.1. So you can roll back to the previous version if necessary. [Read more…]
As I mentioned in the WP-Members 3.1.7 announcement, there is a new filter hook that will allow greater flexibility of customizing form fields that are used when the registration form is displayed. One common request that this solves in a better way is how do I display fields for registration but not for user profile or vice versa.
For the past few months, I have been working diligently on the next release of WP-Members. This release will continue improving and expanding the handling of forms and form fields that is the major focus of 3.1.
Today I am publicly announcing the alpha release of 3.1.7. The version released to GitHub is a stable release and includes some changes I am hoping people will begin using and testing now so they can be tested and ready for moving this version to beta and production release.
UPDATE: 3.1.7 is now out as the production release. There is another post that points out some key information on changes and how/if they affect you. I also added a similar topic to the wordpress.org forum.
