Today, I’m happy to announce the first of a new type of add-on called an “integration add-on” for the Members WordPress plugin.
The first of these integration add-ons is Members – GiveWP Integration, which creates a nicer UI for the role management and edit screens when the GiveWP plugin is installed. It also works with their Recurring Donations extension.
The add-on creates a new capability group that combines all of the GiveWP capabilities into a single tab on the edit/new role screen. This will help you easily find capabilities without searching through multiple tabs for each of GiveWP’s post types and taxonomies.
The add-on creates a new role group under the Roles screen. This group contains all of GiveWP’s roles as well as any other roles that have GiveWP-related capabilities. This allows you to see all roles that have GiveWP permissions from a single location without having to search through individual roles.
Members 3.0 sneak peek
I’ve also built in compatibility with the upcoming Members 3.0 (due later this year). The above screenshot shows how the Members – GiveWP Integration plugin looks in the redesigned role editor. As you might notice, each capability in the new UI has a description that explains what it does. Pretty sweet!
More integrations to come
This is just the first integration add-on in the works. I have plans for several others that I’ll be rolling out in the near future. The following integrations are currently in progress:
- Easy Digital Downloads
And, these are currently under consideration:
- Advanced Custom Fields
- Gravity Forms
I’m rolling these out as soon as I can finish coding and testing them. I’m also waiting to hear back from some about branding guidelines.
Feel free to request any other integrations you’d like to see.
Get the Members – GiveWP Integration
If you’re already a Members Pro or All-Access (premium) member, you can grab a copy of the plugin from your account page.
If you’re not currently a member, drop by the plugin page and purchase membership. It includes access to all Members add-ons and support for one year.
Special thanks to Matt Cromwell and the rest of the GiveWP team for being super responsive about this and for having really nice code that made creating this add-on an awesome experience.
