Membership 2 – Invitation Codes

Using Membership 2 on a very simple site to protect bbpress forums access. Works fine. Only one membership level in place (a free membership level named “residents”:wink:.

I realize that the “invitation Codes” functionality is in beta, but I can’t seem to get it to do anything at all. I’m assuming that activating an invitation code would cause the registration form to display a field to input the proper invite code. (It does not).

Also – (perhaps related) when an invitation code is created, there is an option for which membership the code applies to .. as we only have one membership level, the options are “all” and the “residents” .. if the “residents” membership is checked off during invitation code creation, the system reverts to “all” when the code is saved.

SO – my question.. what am I missing? Is there a setting to activate the invite codes? If so, I can’t find it.

    Hey @jeff,

    Hope you're doing well today :slight_smile:

    I did some testing of this on my end and the field is showing normally for me as you can see from the screenshots attached below.

    Could you please run basic troubleshooting by switching to default WP theme and disabling other plugins so we can see if there are any conflicts on that end?

    Also, when I tried applying code to certain membership it didn't get reset to "any" so it be that this is happening because you only have one membership, can you try creating another membership just to test this?

    Best regards,

    Predrag

    Hi Predrag,

    Thanks very much for the help – most appreciated. The issue is actually with “Invitation Codes” not “Coupon Codes”. I have not tried to use the “coupon codes” add-on as we don’t require that functionality.

    I did deactivate the theme and the issue persists with the default WP 2015 theme. (No invite code field is available).

    Thanks again.

    Since invitation codes are not working in Membership2 – I was contemplating using the WPMU “Signup Code” plugin – but – alas, it looks as if that one is only workable in multisite installs (which our current project is not).

    Hi Jeff,

    Unfortunately Signup Code plugin is developed only for multisite installations as it is actually intended as signup code to be used when creating new site in network.

    I have checked with the developer and the fix for M2 should be included in next update release.

    Best regards,

    Hi again, Predrag,

    I just updated M2 to the latest version (1.0.0.8). Invitation codes are still not working – I’m guessing that the fix for this issue was not in that release (also don’t see any reference to it in the change-log).

    Hopefully the fix is in the next version.

    Thanks for you ongoing assistance.

    Hello Marco!

    The invitation codes should be working fine since some time already. Just to make sure I checked that now on my test setup and I can confirm that.

    That said, if you are experiencing any issues with it, please start a separate thread of you own on our Support Forum. This way we’ll be able to provide you with faster and more relevant assistance and we’ll also spare Jeff who started this thread a lot of unnecessary notifications in an inbox :slight_smile:
