Hello everyone! It took a bit longer than expected, but WP Ultimo 1.7.3 is finally out! It brings some important bug fixes and cool new features. Let’s see what’s new:
tl;dr: This version addresses bugs involving login obfuscation giving 404 errors; It adds Closte.com Support with autoSSL, allows super admins to add coupon codes from subscription management screen, and let them choose how to handle sites above the quota on downgrade;
We were content by Closte.com and we worked closely together to integrate WP Ultimo domain mapping with their platform. Like WP Engine, there’s no extra setup necessary on your part: if you are running on Closte, WP Ultimo and their platform are automatically connected.
This means that every new mapped domain will automatically be added to Closte.
They also offer a really cool autoSSL feature for all the domains added. The result is as soon as your client maps a new domain, not only his domain will be automatically synced with Closte, but it will also have its own Let’s Encrypt cert fetched within the next minute or so! How awesome is that?
Adding coupons directly from the Subscription Management Screen
It is now possible to apply coupons after the sign-up directly from the subscription Management screen as a super admin. There’s still a few limitations, though. A coupon can only be added if no integration is active at the moment for that subscription.
Handling Sites above quota after a downgrade
Since few releases back, super admins are able to decide how they wish to handle client’s posts when downgrade happens. This is useful to prevent clients from creating sites at a higher tier with fewer limitations, building a site, and then downgrading to a lower plan.
The same thing is now possible for sites. On WP Ultimo Settings Network Settings, super admin can now decide how they wish to handle sites above the plan quota when a user downgrades, choosing between keeping them accessible or making them unavailable until the user upgrades again to plan that allows for a higher number of sites.
Sign-up links with predefined template
Now, if you send the signup link with a template_id parameter in the URL, that template is automatically selected and the sign-up process skips the template selection step!
- Super Admins can disable visits counting on the plugin options (WP Ultimo Settings Network Options).
- The super admin now receives two extra emails (that can be disabled on WP Ultimo Settings Emails): one if a subscription becomes inactive and one if a payment fails for whatever reason;
- WP Ultimo can now be activated directly from the wp-config.php. Read more about that here. This will be implemented for add-ons as well in the future.
- We now have a translation platform for those looking into helping WP Ultimo internationalization efforts. Read more about that here.
