How do I auto upgrade membership after paying? (3 posts)

    How do I auto upgrade a membership after they have paid?

    I haev tried a few plugin's for generating membership (currently using wp-member) and the problem I have is they only create one membership level in WP... Whatever you have in your general settings as a start point (i.e. contributor) is what they begin as.

    The problem is I want to have a trial membership that starts as a "member" role level and then after the same membership pays for monthly subscription, I want them to be upgraded to "subscriber" role level...

    I have created the role levels without problems just have to manually go into users admin area and change them to new level...

    Does anyone know of a php string (or) other code I could put into my theme files to control my membership levels?

    I currently use:

    <?php // add a private menu
    if(current_user_can('contributor' || 'administrator' || 'editor' || 'subscriber')) : ?>

    On a few theme pages I modified as to hide contact information from non members, this works great, only trial members can also see this information because everyone starts only as member...

    I wonder if I could do some other type of "if" statement that made WP check to see if member has paid, if so then start as "subscriber" level...?

    It might help to contact the plugin author ... you can probably find a link to his site in the Plugins section of your WP Dashboard.
