Following a new release schedule, focused on bringing a new version each three weeks, today we make WP Ultimo 2.0.20 available to everyone. This new stream of releases is giving us a better time to work on more significant updates, changes to come, and a bigger window to run tests.
This new version brings several improvements and corrections, which we’ll go into detail below. As always, the complete changelog will be at the end of the post.
Version 2.0.20 introduces a new tool to help our support team to be more effective in finding errors. This is the Security Mode option, available on WP Ultimo settings page.
With this mode enabled, only WP Ultimo and mu-plugins will be loaded inside WordPress, allowing the team to quickly verify if the error being investigated is caused by a plugin conflict or not.
Plans updates between different periodicities
This was one of the most requested features on WP Ultimo and allows your customers to change the plan regardless of the frequency. Here is how it works for the different possible scenarios we have for membership changes:
- For downgrades we don’t need to do anything. If the membership is active, we just need to schedule the change.
- For upgrades with larger periods the amount paid will always be higher, so we can also keep it working as there is no chance of having to deal with credits or refunds.
- For upgrades with a shorter period, we’ve added an error message stating that the customer already has a contract with a higher period.
Allow customers to use their own sites as Templates
The functionality that allows our customers to use their own website as a template when creating new websites (available in v1) is now fully functional with v2.
We added code to deal with compatibility issues with some commonly used plugins, such as Elementor – that had a problem when loading the editor from a mapped domain – Rank Math and Rank Math Pro – which broke site duplication due to some not-so-well-behaved filters – and WP Hide Pro – which caused problems inside the site previewer.
We have cleaned and improved several methods related to the webhooks portion of WP Ultimo, which are currently fully functional and tested with Zapier.
Filter to redirect after confirmation
The last important change is the addition of a filter called “wu_return_url”.
This filter allows developers to easily change the redirection process after the checkout ends. It does not work yet with addons gateways (like Woocommerce) but should be incorporated soon.
