WordPress 4.3 is here along with an update to WishList Member

WishList Member

We recently posted some information about how WishList Member is affected by WordPress version 4.3.

As it turns out, there are more changes in WordPress 4.3 that affect WishList Member than we originally expected. One of these WordPress 4.3 changes is quite significant to anyone running WishList Member and it has to do with adding new users to a WordPress site.

Without getting too technical, WordPress 4.3 returns a different response when adding a new user than previous versions of WordPress. This means that WishList Member will no longer allow new users to be added to a site that is running WordPress 4.3, which results in registrations not being successful.

But do not worry because we have already created a fix for the problem for all WishList Member users. How you apply this fix will depend on when you purchased a WishList Member license or renewal, as that will determine which version of WishList Member you can use. Continue Reading →

Stu said that he and his wife had been making some major life decisions that would affect his future both personally and professionally.

Initially, I replied that I planned to be on the regularly scheduled Friday meeting, but I quickly realized that something just seemed different. We then pushed the meeting up a day early. Continue Reading →
