    Hi,

    How is it possible for s2Member pro to send an automated email to each member a week prior to the End of Term?

    Cheers Simon

    s2 doesn't include this feature, so I wrote a helper plugin that sends an automated email one week before the EOT, and then again one day before EOT:

    This looks like a very convenient tool, Johnathon!

    I decided to write s2hacks_EOT_Email_Notify.php after a lot of reading on the subject of EOT notifications and not being able to find an existing implementation that suits my needs. I hope I haven't duplicated anything that already exists...

    I prefer a scheduled 'job' to run each day to check all users instead of code that runs for each user at some point during their logged in session. I run a table tennis club site with mainly public content, so it is rare for the members to actually log in. In my case, s2Member is mainly used to track memberships not control content access, so notifications are extremely important.

    Below is the approach I'm using as of tonight. The comments explain the entire approach for 3 pre-expiration notifications. A wave of 1st Notification e-mail messages went out from my site upon landing the .php file in the mu-plugins folder.

    <?php
    //
    //     s2hacks_EOT_Email_Notify.php
    //
    //     Create user_meta s2hacks_eot_notify_state to track upcoming
    //     EOT expirations.  Send e-mail to user and admin as EOT crosses
    //     specific thresholds of remaining days.
    //
    //     s2hacks_eot_notify_state values
    //         0: EOT is far into the future
    //         1: EOT crossed 1st threshold and 1st Notification has been sent
    //         2: EOT crossed 2nd threshold and 2nd Notification has been sent
    //         3: EOT crossed 3rd threshold and 3rd Notification has been sent
    //
    //     NOTES
    //        1) Place this .php file in your mu-plugins folder to schedule
    //           the initial (immediate) run of s2hacks_eot_notify_event and
    //           the subsequent daily recurring s2hacks_eot_notify_event.
    //           Suggestion: Use plugin "WP Crontrol" or similar to see the
    //                       WP-cron events.
    //        2) If this mu-plugin is removed...
    //           A) You must manually
    //              clean up the WP-cron schedule residue.  The "WP Crontrol"
    //              plugin can be used to remove the scheduled
    //              s2hacks_eot_notify_event.
    //           B) Also, any instances of the meta_key named
    //              s2hacks_eot_notify_state will be your responsibility
    //              to remove from the wp_usermeta table.
    //              Suggestion: Use phpMyAdmin or equivalent to locate and
    //                          delete the residue rows.
    //        3) Put the word 'Development' into your Site Title (Dashboard,
    //           Settings, General, Site Title) to suppress the user e-mail
    //           while you are testing.
    //        4) Set a user's first name to 'Test' to receive user e-mail even
    //           when running with a 'Development' Site Title.
    //

    //                 A) Fixed detection of existing s2hacks_eot_notify_state

    Hi

    Does this still work? I've been futzing with it and can't seem to get it to do anything.

    I see the jobs in wp croncontrol but no email is ever sent out
