We are getting back to our regular schedule of new releases every 12 days or so with new features (with urgent fixes being released when necessary). Version 1.5.4 addresses some small issues reported by users, optimizes old parts of the code, and contains some cool long-waited features.
WooCommerce Integration Version 1.1.2 is also out with some fixes, as well as code to enforce that orders get automatically changed to completed after payment_completed() is called by the payment gateway, making sure WP Ultimo’s hooks run when they need to (to renew subscriptions and send out invoices).
Version 1.5.4 comes packed with a lot of cool features, including:
Roles per plan
Super admins can now select different roles for each of the plans in the network. These roles will be used during account creation, but any change in those settings will also refresh the roles of all users on that plan, giving admins a lot of control over what users on a given plan can see and/or do.
Templates per plan
Another long-awaited feature is the ability to filter what templates are shown to the client when he selects a given plan. WP Ultimo now allows super admins to overwrite the Available Templates on the template selection step on a per-plan basis.
Locking Post Types
Another feature added to the plans was the possibility of locking post types altogether.
Better subscription date control
Up to our last version, WP Ultimo only allowed super admins to change subscription dates (most importantly, the active until date) up to the day. Now it is possible to change the hour and minute for more granular control and better testing. This was also extended to the expiry date of coupon codes and other parts of the plugin. A small clock was also added to the WP Ultimo’s top bar to display the server time in real-time.
Email notification for Super admins on domain mapping
In some network setups, domain mapping can require extra actions for the network admin. In those cases, it is useful to get a notification when a client maps a domain to his/her site. WP Ultimo now has an email template to do just that, sending an email to the network admin when a new domain is mapped on the network.
Plan and Billing Frequency added to the Subscription -> Add New page
The add new page now allows super admins to select which plan and frequency to use for the newly created subscription.
Activity Stream Widget
Super admins will now find in their Dashboard an Activity Stream widget, providing an overview of the most recent transactions on the network. This is the initial version of the widget and more useful information and events will be added as we continue to develop this feature.
Gravatar display on the Subscriptions list table
To help make things more personal and to add a little bit of color to a rather dull-looking page, the Subscription list table now displays the gravatar associated with the email used in that subscription.
Version 1.5.4 also includes important fixes, including:
- “Block Frontend Access” not working;
- Remaining time displaying the wrong value on the subscription management page;
- Edge-cases where broadcast messages were being displayed to non-targeted users;
